Next Generation Favourite Episodes - Season Four
The adventures of the Next Generation crew have consistently improved season-by-season so far, with the last season ending with the series' first cliffhanger. Would the fourth season continue this encouraging trend? The answer is almost certainly a resounding 'yes' as far as most fans are concerned. The selection of episodes was the broadest yet and included an interesting glimpse of Picard's home.
The same episode also introduces Worf's adoptive human parents (whose affection makes him amusingly uncomfortable!) and he also soon discovers he has a 'surprise' son. Elsewhere, Troi whines about her senses as usual, Picard battles the Devil, Worf stuns us all by declaring that he is in fact "not a merry man", Dr Crusher almost becomes a lesbian, and Geordie nearly starts a war. There's also an intriguing episode called 'Clues' in which a xenophobic species attempts to trick the Enterprise crew into not realising they exist!
As much as I enjoyed this episode, however, it didn't quite make the cut. Here, therefore, are my choices for the best of season four:
Best of Both Worlds Part 2 (Episode 1)
Remember Me (Episode 5)
Reunion (Episode 7)
First Contact (Episode 15)
Redemption Part 1 (Episode 26)
Look out for my Season Five picks soon!
