Re: TNG S1: Where No One Has Gone Before

I quibble with the wording of this criticism: "... all of it is based on pure fantasy rather than sci-fi." I don't take TNG as science fiction, certainly not in the terms of someone like Arthur C. Clarke. Where is the science when the crew can breathe without space suits on every planet, everyone speaks English, and all aliens are humanoids with bumpy heads? Space is really kind of a McGuffin; the real final frontier is (at its best) good storytelling, human nature, imagination, ideas, those sorts of things. I agree with the criticisms here on this episode, and it could have done a better job with some ideas that themselves aren't really so silly. The nature of thought is intriguing coming from Plato or the Kogi Indians of Colombia.
