In regards to season 1 episode 11 of The Next Generation:

I know that the shows usually have to get their grounding and that a season usually doesn't pick-up steam until about the third season, with the stars finding their characters. I however feel like this epsiode was an exception and ahead of the curve. To me I feel like we get a good glimpse of the future of the series. Picard and Riker both seem to have a more friendly and carefree demeanor among other things. This seems like what their characters envolve into in later seasons. Sadly it seems like their characters devolve back to their usual season one /season two personas immediately in the following episode. I'm curious as to how others feel about this episode.

I wish they would have kept Minuet - she reminds me of Vic Fontaine.

This episode stands out in the first season for me, mostly because I can't enjoy the story with the apperant plot holes such as, how can Starfleet not know that Bynar's planet was in impending doom, or the fact that the Bynars are portraid as so black and white that the very notion of asking their allies (and clearly they are allies if they are lending their help) for assistance.


I will agree the high points in this episode are the holodeck scenes. It was nice to see Riker and Picard interact with minuet at a bar.

For season 1 it's a pretty good episode I'd say. But my favorite episode for Season 1 is probably Hide and Q or Conspiracy maybe. The Arsenal of Freedom isn't bad either.

I actually thought the Bynars were a highlight of this episode.  The one-time-only alien species were much better developed in TNG than TOS and they were certainly memorable.  Even in Season 1.

This episode has something for everyone:


Spacedock, weird aliens, hijacking, jazz clubs, sexy wymin ...


Picard actually speaks FRENCH in this one! Good stuff.

This is I think my favorite episode of season 1, except for The Big Goodbye.

I had a hard time enjoying this episode...  to think that a group of six bynars can hijack the flagship of the Federation WHILE IN SPACEDOCK is somewhat absurd... 


 


The premise of the world dying, and needing the central computer of the Enterprise is okay, but the actual ship abduction was far-fetched.  I did enjoy however the spacedock scenes and the holodeck interactions.  In the first season we were all still getting used to what the holodeck could do for the crew (and us!).

Why haven`t the Bynars just ASKED for help? They would get if for sure because it was about survival of an entire race.


But if they did ask for help, than there would be no story for the episode.


The holodeck improvement were great, and introducing the Bynar species was interesting because they are so different. I liked the way they communicate - they are so efficient!!

The Most Interesting Thing About This Episode Is The Fact That Enterprise-D Could Fit Into the Same Spacedock From ST 3.
