[TNG] Season 2, Episode 8 (Netflix: S2 E8): A Matter of Honor
This is one of the standouts for the second season, and one of the best Riker episodes of the entire series. It’s also a great showcase for the Klingons. The way Riker adapts to extreme circumstances exemplifies the more adventurous side of what makes Star Trek fun to watch, something that isn’t as big a part of TNG as it was in the original series. In general the episode is is just put together better than the average season two episode.
