Next Generation Favourite Episodes - Season Three
The great and highly-anticipated return of Star Trek to the small screen resulted in a tentative first season, a decent (and better) second season, but it was in this third season that the show really found its feet. The sexiest redhead in Starfleet returned to the Enterprise's sickbay for one thing, which means everything is now present and correct as far as the crew is concerned, but the episodes reached a greater consistency in quality too.
The selection this time around includes the usual spatial anomalies, questionable alien policies, a powerful and scary race of whom nothing is ever seen again, as well as the increasingly common sight of Klingon and Romulan ships. The crew get their fair share of action too - Captain Picard scores, Data gets stolen, and Counsellor Troi even gets her kit off (although sadly so does her irritating mother)! It's a great and varied season then, and the best one yet. Here are my favourites:
Who Watches The Watchers (Episode 4)
The Defector (Episode 10)
Yesterday's Enterprise (Episode 15)
Sins of the Father (Episode 17)
The Best of Both Worlds Part 1 (Episode 26)
Look out for my Season Four picks soon!
