Encounter at Farpoint: Part 2

The best part about this episode is how ominous and threatening they make the Ferengi out to be. It must not have taken the writers long to realize that they looked just a little too ridiculous for viewers to actually find them scary, and that they work far better as comic relief.

Did everything just taste purple for a second?

Another thing I really liked about the earlier seasons of Next Gen was the alien creatures who looked and acted nothing like humans. There was a lot less of that in Deep Space Nine and the other later series, as they became more of a space opera and stopped pursuing plots that even tried to explore new science fiction themes.

I feel that you should definitely continue doing reviews of TNG episodes.

Please.
