Question of the Day

In our last Question of the Day, I asked readers to identify their favorite episode of classic Star Trek. Commenter Kevin R proposed that we talk about some of the other series, including The Next Generation, and I think that's a fine idea.

Mine is "The Inner Light." In it, an alien probe causes Jean-Luc Picard to experience a full life -- including marriage, friends, children, and grandchildren -- in a single moment. Then it was gone, like the civilization that built the probe. It is a sad and wistful tale, brilliantly crafted, and greatly deepened Picard's character.

What's your favorite episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation?
