[TNG] Contagion

[TNG] Season 2, Episode 11 (Netflix: S2 E11): Contagion

Contagion

Rating: 4  

This episode is more exciting and interesting from the start. It has the Romulans and the Iconians — a super advanced and ancient race. Ancient super advanced alien civilizations and Romulans are two of my favorite things, so naturally I’m going to love this episode.

Kind of a lame scene with Pulaski. All the technology is messing up so she shares her old-timey wisdom on splints. The nurse thinks that's just crazy

    My favourite part is the inconspicuous appearance of present day Toronto through the portal. Oh if only Picard could have found himself there rather than the Romulan bridge.

    Roy from the IT Department of Reynholm Industries sure could have helped here.
