    possession tale A Matter of Time Matt Frewer guest stars as a conman Cause and Effect a time loop tale of some wit and style featuring a few moments with Kelsey Grammar and The First Duty the gimmick of which is it s actually good drama The season s duds are the cowardly and reactionary The Outcast which thinks it s addressing issues of sexuality by getting Riker to kiss a woman who has short hair go figure and the tedious sloppy and sentimental I Borg where the series grabs its biggest baddest Big Bad and gives them a friendly hug Sorry did I say Hug I meant Hugh Sheesh Imaginary Friend and Hero Worship are both of the Data befriends a child subgenre and should be cast into the pit for that alone and the horribly misjudged The Masterpiece Society finds Riker smashing up a paradise for ideological reasons The swine Time to mention some more of those gimmick installments The Game is dumb but fun It s a swipe at geekdom disguised as a drug abuse parallel and it works rather well The Next Phase is virtually a Looney Tunes cartoon with Geordi and Ro running through walls and kickboxing intangible Romulans and Unification features the biggest gimmick of all Mr Spock Derided at the time for not being all things to all men Unification is a pretty smart compromise The double length gives it enough time to build slowly and while it takes ages to get to Spock and Romulus and it s an underwhelming glimpse at the Romulan homeworld it must be said this is more than compensated for by the interplay between Nimoy and Stewart once we get them together Both actors know that this is an important instalment and choose to play it subtly and slowly rather than going for the obvious gags and winks The plot is zeitgeisty without being preachy taking from the present without lecturing about it which is the way that Star Trek really should be I don t want to be lectured to by a man with pointed ears and a man with yellow eyes thanks There s a really amusing Klingon Captain played very archly by Stephen Root too See there really was a time when Klingons weren t dull Weird The year wraps up with The Perfect Mate a Picard in love with Famke Jannsen story which is nice work if you can get it that features some amusing use of the Ferengi and a nicely judged HG Wells pastiche The Inner Light The finale is a slice of pseudo Doctor Who which promises much sadly the next season s follow up second half failed to deliver This box doesn t quite have a Buffy level hit rate but it s damn good stuff all the same a glossy and pleasing glimpse at a concept and a cast at their peak The sixth and seventh seasons of the show would contain very fine episodes but the creativity

    while admittedly being about that dramatic cop out mcguffin the Prime Directive at least has Paul Sorvino in it Next up is the horrendous Sub Rosa in which Bev falls in love with a ghost or something and lots of bagpipes are played as US TV once more somehow simultaneously patronises and fetishises a European country in this case Scotland The series recovers in time for Lower Decks a splendid story told from the points of view of young junior officers This does more than any other episode to make Enterprise seem like a real place It s a hugely succesful bit of world building with some great performances from the stand in regulars but as you may have gathered it comes in the middle of a throughly lousy run of episodes Thine Own Self is a Data has amnesia story and Masks is a Data gets possessed by some Mayan gods episode Both are about as interesting as those summaries make them sound After this thankfully the season rallies somewhat for its final stretch Eye of the Beholder is a really well done murder mystery which centres on the unlikely romantic pairing of Troi and Worf and features a genuinely surprising ending Genesis is nonsense but action paced nonsense which features the great Dwight Schultz as Reg Barclay so what more do you want and Journey s End somehow mixes Native American mythology a discussion of colonialism and an appearance by Wesley Crusher into a satisfying complex whole Firstborn is the last Klingon centred episode in the whole of Star Trek to escape being dull thanks to some well scripted Father Son scenes between Worf and Alexander a time travel subplot and a cracking cameo from Armin Shimmerman Bloodlines is a sequel to season one s The Battle and is yet another story of fatherhood Fortunately it s one in which Patrick Stewart gives one of his best performances as Picard and which doesn t hold back from actually discussing the issues with which it deals Skipping quickly over the Holodeck s last hurrah that is Emergence we get to Pre emptive Strike a thoroughly well executed episode in which former semi regular Ensign Ro reappears out of the blue and immediately starts kicking ass and taking names An intelligent look at rebellion and terrorism it shows what could have been achieved on Deep Space Nine had anybody involved in that show well tried is the word that leaps to mind The series finale is the epic All Good Things a two parter which sees Picard flip flopping backwards and forwards in time quarrelling with Q John De Lancie and saving the whole of humanity into the bargain It s great and one huge plot hole notwithstanding an unqualified triumph Everyone gives their all here and the script actors FX and music combined to create ninety of the best Trek minutes ever Love Picard s beard straw hat and dungarees too The box set comes with a few bells
