62- YESTERDAY’S ENTERPRISE
- This is the episode wherein Worf develops a life-long love of prune juice.
-Alternate timelines, characters risen from the dead, and pissed off Romulans make this one great.
63- THE OFFSPRING
-Data has a kid. Like any human parent, he's read a ton of contradictory books on parenting but nothing prepares him for what a huge, confusing job it is.
-This is such a great, “Data Don’t Know” episode
-When Lal says, "I am scared," it pretty much breaks me on the inside.
64- SINS OF THE FATHER
-This is the very first time we ever hear, "Worf, son of Mogue." So awesome!
-Here's a great puzzle episode--complete with doppelgänger Picard.
-Doppelgänger Picard likes to get drunk in Ten Forward and lead the crew in Starfleet school songs.
66- CAPTAIN’s HOLIDAY
-Ah, the episode that launched a million fangirl crushes:
67- TIN MAN
-Oh hellmouth, it’s the Mayor!
-Actually, I love the friendship that Tam and Data develop. This has never been one of my favorite episodes but I think it's a great one.
68- HOLLOW PURSUITS
-This is the first Barclay episode.
-Bonus Points for Barclay's use of the phrase: "Flux Capacitor"
69- THE MOST TOYS
-This is the one where Arty from Warehouse 13 kidnaps Data and tries to make him wear pretty outfits and sit in a chair like a fancy doll. Uggh. This is a legitimately great episode with a really awesome Data moment at the end but every single time I watch it, the thing makes me super uncomfortable.
-My undying love of Mark Leonard continues in this one. I'm already planning a "Mark Leonard Tribute Post" for when "Unification" comes around.
71- MENAGE A TROI
-This episode is 100% worth watching just to see Patrick Stewart spout Shakespeare at Gene Roddenberry's wife and a Ferengi for three and a half minutes.
-This is almost certainly the episode that launched my fangirl crush.
-At the beginning of this episode, Worf bestows some dating advice on Geordi: “You must let her see the fire in your eyes.” Apparently the fact that Geordi is blind and wears a visor is totally lost on Worf.
-What the hell ever happened to Ensign Gomez? I really thought they were going to do something with her.
-This episode is actually about a mysterious alien seeking refuge from his repressive culture onboard the Enterprise. It's a pretty solid Trek story.
