Storyline

The Enterprise's mission is aborted to return to a starbase where Admiral Brackett charges them with investigating the disappearance and possible defection to the ever-scheming Romulans of dying Federation ambassador Sarek's son Spock, who didn't say goodbye to his parents but took all his personal belongings after a public row with Sarek over the Cardassian war. A visit from Picard makes them realize the key must be Romulan senator Pardek, with whom Spock maintains years-long personal contacts, against Sarek's will. Meanwhile Klingon leader Gowron is writing the Federation's help in the civil war out of official history, so Picard resorts to suggestions to get him to provide a cloaked ship, reluctantly piloted by Captain K'Vada, for this mission, with Data, both prepared to impersonate Romulans on Romulus. Meanwhile Commander William T. Riker and Troi find examining the disappearance of a Federation ship to and from the Ferengi most dangerous. Written by KGF Vissers

Star Trek: The Next Generation

Roddenberry's second creation of an elite group exploring space through humanity is a remarkable milestone for not only television but the sci-fi genre itself. As it quips repetitively, it dares go where no one has been before, and analyzes the good and bad of the nature. And it's that wide range of nature that is touched down, in all its hokum that it calls for, the answers are overwhelming to all the questions thrown out to it. Unlike the previous series, it has much more characters to handle which is a double edge sword. On the pro section, it helps writers jump in on diverse categories through them and swoop in as much as material possible through their individual perspective and still keep it all inside a definite and familiar circle.

On the other hand, it also is challenging to fiddle around these many characters on screen, especially the amount of new contents and eerie ideas each episode comes up with, it increases the possibility to lean towards flaws. And yes, it has its own limitation, but in its own gullible range and potential, it just simply works. Plus, what's fascinating is despite of being brimmed with these many personas floating about in the space, they haven't allotted any stereotypical specific characteristics to the characters, their species and nature may definitely vary, but a cheesy note is strictly prohibited in Enterprise-D.

The infamous Capt. Jean-Luc Picard played by Stewart who is mostly known by this role from his career, is exceptionally well crafted character that is simply nothing but a good leader and add Stewart's performance to that, the outcome is your iconic character that survives decades easily. Sirtis as the consciously enhanced counselor fits perfectly in the ship and the makers makes sure either they keep her up front to notify the shady part of the plot or distracts her wisely to advance the plot.

Frakes, once again, a competent leader and warrior that is more explored into love affairs while Dorn as a hot head and Burton as the most adapting and willful learner on the ship helps make the environment more engaging and realistic. Spiner as the android, Lt. Commander Data, who means nothing but business, unfortunately, is the guy that means the least amount of business, often relied upon for the humor, he might be explored thoroughly but is rarely projected with sincerity.

Personally, I prefer Stewart's mellow equation with Wheaten who looks up to him as a father figure and adds the right amount of emotion to it, McFadden's friendly relation too helps on spicing up this dish. The guest cast coming in- often playing the antagonist- invests equally and perpetually to this scoreboard. Advancing further than the previous series did, this journey also brings in rich traditional rituals and their own quirky references to the table. Star Trek: The Next Generation is your typical space ride, floating without any control it grabs everything like a child, and in its innocence and honesty it is one breathtaking ride.

Season 05

Not the ethical throughout provoking dilemmas, nor the smart innovative concepts, this season is well aware of its audience from now, and the writers willfully fiddles with the characters like puppets and just lets their history and connection with their fans works the charm.

Unification I

This first act of the two part episode is basically setting up the boundaries for what is about to broken, it leaps from one character to another like some sort of investigation process, where the revelations might not be easily negotiable with the fans.
