“Elementary, Dear Data” debuted on December 5, 1988, and 26 years later it remains one of Star Trek: The Next Generation’s most-entertaining episodes The season-two hour centered on Data, La Forge and Dr. Pulaski, who become embroiled in a Sherlock Holmes-style holodeck mystery involving a quick-thinking, fast-learning and arguably sentient Professor James Moriarty (Daniel Davis). The episode looked great, thanks to inventive direction by Rob Bowman, great costumes created by Robert Blackman and impressive Victorian sets. And it benefited from entertaining turns from Brent Spiner, LeVar Burton and Diana Muldaur, as well as guest star Davis.
