I’ve been rewatching Star Trek: The Next Generation lately. Well, I use the term “lately” loosely; it’s been a little while. However, I stopped at an interesting point: the middle of The Best of Both Worlds.
I haven’t really watched the show other than occasionally catching some in syndication since back when I was watching episodes we recorded on VHS. But I got the whole series on DVD, and realized I owed it to my old memories of the show to watch it.
Rewatching the first few seasons, I am realizing how iconic they were in many ways, how they shape the idea of what the show was. They were good enough for the show to continue, after all. However, I remember more of the later seasons, so I’m excited to move on and rewatch some of those episodes. But for now, a few thoughts on rewatching the first few seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation!
