Dr. Pulaski refuses to use Data's pronouns at first, but admits that Data is considered to be alive by Starfleet. Meanwhile the ship encounters a hole in space and is subjected to a series of tests.
This episode was reminiscent of how the crew got put to the test by Q at "Encounter at Farpoint." It's odd to me that the writers would have done this episode given how similiar it was to S01E0102. As we know they were not all out of good ideas.

S02E01 The Child
While the A plot is truly cringeworthy, Riker gets a beard and La Forge is promoted to Chief Engineer in this episode. Coupled with the arrival of Doctor Pulaski, Ten Forward, and Guinan, this is an episode worth watching! We even see O'Brien operating the transporter! I think the last time we saw him was the pilot!
The server tenforward.social is on will be rebooting shortly for a kernel update.
Be right back.
A new Discovery comic dropped!
It's set at the end of season 2 after Discovery heads to the future, but before Spock appears clean shaven on the Enterprise bridge. He's dealing with the "aftermath" of Michael leaving.
Also has some interesting intrigue between Captain Pike and the Klingons.
This is only part one, so it will be interesting to see how things shape up. If you're a Captain Pike, Spock, or Discovery fan this might be worth reading.
TNG S01E21 The Arsenal of Freedom. I finally got back to watching TNG after a
three month break.
I did not remember that they separated the saucer in this episode. They did it
in the pilot, and this episode. Did they do it in any other episodes? You'd
think they would do it all the time for safety reasons. Good call by Geordi to
separate it and keep the civilians safe
I'm watching the Trekyards folks play Star Trek: Bridge Crew live on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzpdVCLNqLw
Looks like a fun game, especially in VR!
Final stage of The Great Galactic Scowlathon! #QuarksPolls
It's been a long road...
...sorry! Thank you for your patience my wonderful customers, I was unavoidably delayed. Can you believe the Breen were holding me hostage on trumped up charges of smiggling Andorian Rye Wine through the badlands?
Me! Outrageous. Anyways...
The wait is over, the final stage of The Great Galactic Scowlathon is here!
