[TNG] Where No One Has Gone Before

TNG Season 1, Episode 6 (Netflix: S1 E7): Where No One Has Gone Before

Rating: 2

This episode will probably be dull to most people earning it a 2. A main point of this episode is to show that Wesley is some kind of a genius beyond our comprehension. As a result I hope you’re comfortable with not understanding most of the things happening in this episode and having people repeatedly tell you that you just can’t understand

 

Notes:

Another episode, another chief engineer

File under: Biff Yeager (Argyle)

I refuse to believe there will be any time period where children find this sweatshirt cool. I thought Star Trek was supposed to give us hope for the future

They really don’t want you to like this guy

This is the first appearance of the Traveler

File under: Eric Menyuk (the Traveler)

Past warp 10! I hope they don’t turn into salamanders

They talk about space, time, and thought not being separate, which makes it sound like they are building up a foundational concept, but they never talk about it in Star Trek outside of this episode

Kosinski mentions that they have charted 11% of the galaxy

Yar seems both infatuated and disgusted with this cat. Thats a hard combo to get across

The crew’s thoughts seem real! I love that this was what one of the crew members was thinking about. Isn’t there a lot of children on board? Shouldn’t the ship be overrun by dinosaurs or something by now?

Yeah yeah, Wesley is a genius

At the conclusion of the episode Picard makes Wesley an acting ensign, and tells him he is going to start preparing for Starfleet Academy

    I loved that the ship was saved/brought back to their original place in the galaxy by using the clap-your-hands-and-Tinkerbell-will-live maneuver.

    But if the Traveller hadn’t been making lovey-eyes at young Wes, he probably wouldn’t have been distracted enough to send the Enterprise off-course in the first place.
