Paul and Jason preview the introduction of the Federation’s most dangerous foe.
The prime directive means that sometimes you let kids die, unless you can hear them beg for help on the radio. Also, after you help the kid (and her whole planet) you have to make it right with ethically questionable surgery. The Federation is messed up, man.
Paul and Jason talk over the episode TNG episode “Pen Pals” with guest host Dean, this week.
The Worf stuff in this episode is really good – it should be the main focus. It’s not. BUT – we manage to have fun with an episode that doesn’t really know what to do with Riker and his Dad, but manages to expand the character of Worf considerably with only 10 minutes of screentime. “Other Jason” guest hosts.
So there’s this hotel, but it’s not real. But it kind of is. It’s on a planet, but this planet is colder than absolute zero. Also, there’s a love story happening and all of the characters are based off of cheesy novel characters I guess? Oh, and there’s this guy named Tex and he’s the best.
-A recap of the plot of this episode by anyone who has ever watched it.
