I’ll be honest, I haven’t watched all of The Next Generation in any sort of useful way - it was always on TV when I was a kid, and I’ve watched some episodes here and there, and I gotta say that this show is Weird y’all
Anyway, my favorite Good Star Trek Moment is in an episode when Picard was dealing with, basically, aggressive Rules Lawyer Aliens over a treaty that allowed them to annex a planet. After spending the whole episode on the edge of war, he finds a loophole in the treaty that lets him win, and when the aliens call him back, he lets the Space Phone ring for a while and goes over and looks at the Enterprise’s dedication plaque and is just Smug As Hell and it’s great.
The episode I will never shut up about, however, is the one where Troi got raped by a space energy being and had a space energy being baby in like 36 hours and everyone on the ship except Worf was totally okay with this. Worf is like “fuck this, I’m sending security guards to the birth of this eldritch monstrosity” and the Doctor GOT MAD AT HIM. Star Trek could be very bad. I guess I’ll give it +5 Woke Points for being willing to mention the “abortion” word on network television in the early '90s, but then Negative 8500 Points for having an entire episode centered around having the empath character bear an energy being rape baby.
