Earlier this year when going to see Dark Knight Rises, I noticed on the marquee those magical words “Star Trek”. I let out a noise not unlike when Scooby-Doo is surprised. I broke out my phone to research, and discovered a screening of the TNG season one episodes “Where No One Has Gone Before” and “Datalore” to promote the HD restoration and Blu-Ray release. “Can’t miss this” I decided, and ANO’s Jeremiah and I partook. It was a great time, and surprisingly fun to watch with a crowd. I hoped they would continue this with the subsequent season releases, and they have.
If you have Amazon Prime, you need wait no longer.
I can’t believe that I paid one hundred dollars each, for the first three seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but that’s precisely what happened. I’ve seen this show backwards and forwards several times over the years, and it’s safe to say that there isn’t a more beloved show in my history. Even though I managed to collect all the seasons over the years (perhaps my only legitimate collection goal), when I discovered that TNG would be on Netflix instant streaming, I cherished the idea of not having to fumble through the awkward seven (or six disc for season two) disc sets. Today, that dream is reality. To celebrate this, I’ve compiled some favorite episodes that aren’t the usual suspects.
***Contains Spoilers*** Y’know… for a 20-year-old show.
