“Space, the final frontier,” the words spoken by several actors, but none so epic as Patrick Stewart portraying Captain Jean-Luc Picard of NCC-1701-D Enterprise. Starting in 1987 and running through 1994, Star Trek The Next Generation redefined the franchise and brought a whole new flock of fans into the fold. I was one of these fans.
Here is my list of Top 10 Best Star Trek Next Generation Episodes:
10. Encounter At Far Point – The pilot episode introduced the majority of the main characters and brought in one of the most frustrating antagonists in the series, Q (John DeLancie).
09. Elementary, Dear Data – Everyone’s favorite android Data plays the role of Sherlock Holmes on the holodeck. After a mistaken order, Professor Moriarty becomes an enemy not only to the great detective, but to the ship.
08. Yesterday’s Enterprise – After a time rift, the predecessor Enterprise emerges from the past, creating havoc in the timeline.
