Star Trek: The Next Generation is, was, and probably will always be my favorite incarnation of the Star Trek franchise. I loved the characters. I loved the stories. The late 1980’s and early 1990’s offered much better special effects than those the original series had to work with. I never truly caught on to DS9, Voyager, or Enterprise. I have really been enjoying Wil Wheaton’s commentary on TNG episodes over at TV Squad. Wil’s sense of humor is unerring, and his deconstruction of the episodes is an entertaining read. He also supplies interesting memories associated with filming the episodes. You can read all of Wil’s recaps here. To me, the mark of good writing is the extent to which I am compelled to read it to Steve. I have read all of Wil’s TNG recaps to Steve.
