Re: TNG S1: Haven

Another mediocre episode, but had a few decent moments. The dinner scene was quite comical, and I laughed out loud when data asks "Would you please continue the petty bickering?" Good stuff. And the crisis that Picard faced was interesting, the last remaining survivors of a race carrying a deadly disease. But the solution was too contrived... Anyway, 2 stars at best.

Re: TNG S1: The Battle

A good effort, and I did enjoy the episode, but yet another example of why the old TOS writers needed to get swept out, which is what happened and led to much more relevant storytelling in Season 2 and beyond.

Re: TNG S1: Justice

TNG's first stab at tackling the Prime Directive, and wow, what a flop! Sometimes episodes seem good on paper, but just don't quite play out that way. Yet I have to wonder, how could the producers have read this script and thought it was any good? In comparison it was ever so slightly better than Code of Honor, but it's not that hard to be better than a zero! And good grief, I will never understand the writers' preoccupation with always qualifying Wesley as "the boy".

Re: TNG S1: Code of Honor

Agree with all the negative reviews here. This is about as bad as Trek ever gets, right up there with Spock's Brain, The Way To Eden, and Shades of Gray... I was 16 at the time. As an avid Trek fan, I, like so many others I would imagine, was just so excited to have Star Trek back that I didn't even realize how bad this episode was. I'm rewatching all of the episodes now on Amazon Prime, and didn't last 5 minutes on this one before skipping right to the next episode... Sad that Enterprise got the negative fan reaction that it did. I bet many of those fans that didn't seem give Enterprise a chance forget, selectively I suppose, how bad many of TNG's first season episodes were.
