A Guide to Binging Star Trek: The Next Generation Season One

For a long time, I’ve wanted to write an episode-by-episode guide to every Star Trek series out there, with the exception of Discovery, because I haven’t seen that one yet.

This was my second Sunday waking up in the new apartment, but it was the first when I didn’t have to get up and finish moving stuff out of the old apartment. I wanted a bit of a lie-in, but I was awake at five in the morning. I did what any normal person would …read more…
