A newbie Trekkie, and at my age... Don't be absurd, of course I have seen the original series, and the first 5 films. But this blog series documents the highlights of my long journey into strange new worlds, new life and new civilizations. Join me, won't you?
|Star Trek TNG S1E10 - Haven|
It was at this point that I made the executive decision to go all in on Star Trek TNG. Yes, it really did take 10 episodes for me to fully commit. As daunting as 176 episodes seemed, they are flying by at warp speed.
But this episode, Haven, was where I began to really enjoy the characters, and see the potential for what was to come. The humor, the silliness came along at precisely the right time for me, the current state of the world being what it is.
This episode is the first of several featuring Majel Barrett playing the mother of Counselor Troi. And I'm only today years old at learning that not only has she been in various Star Trek episodes from the beginning of the original series, she was also Gene Roddenberry's wife. Wow!
Stay tuned for a new Tales From The TNG Trek installment every Saturday. As of this writing, I'm nearly through Season 3 and have several posts coming up to commemorate my favorite--or at least noteworthy--episodes.
