Random Trek Tuesday – Too Short a Season (TNG)

I am not simply an advisor. On any assignment I accompany, Starfleet has designated me Senior Mission Officer. I control the away team and all its actions. Is that understood? Of course, Captain, you command the ship, but the mission is mine. I trust you are in complete agreement.

LOL it feels like I say this every week but when this episode randomly came up I groaned slightly. So after watching the Too Short a Season episode I guess it holds up okay, not great and it’s definitely a first season episode (read into that as you will).

It was weird seeing how young Riker looks in the episode after watching Picard last week.

I guess no one is particularly likeable outside the crew and the science involved in the Admiral’s youth drugs is best forgotten about. I mean the stuff worked but he overdosed. I wonder if you could argue that Dr McCoy played around with those drugs which is why he’s still alive.

This is part of the Random Trek Tuesday. I have gathered together EVERY episode of Star Trek, every season, every series and every film except for Star Trek Picard and put them into a big spreadsheet. Every week I let the randomiser pick one episode out which I’ll watch and then draw a scene from. You’ll find the original over on the Lee Draws Stuff shop immediately after publishing here on a Tuesday night (unless already sold).
