And now, it’s time for round two of Star Trek: a foray into The Next Generation.
Set long after the original show, this popular series returns to the Trek universe for another set of adventures aboard a later iteration of the Enterprise. Its crew of beloved characters include Patrick Stewart’s Captain Jean-Luc Picard, LeVar Burton’s Geordi Laforge, and Brent Spiner’s android Data. But since we’ve never actually watched it, dedicated TNG fangirl Sarah Weitman (who you might recall from our 30 Rock episode) is here as our navigator.
She’s asked us to watch three episodes in a specific order: Data’s Day from season four, The Chase from season six, and finally I, Borg from season five. Be sure to watch before listening, as the podcast has lots of spoilers.
Just like with the original series, you can find all of this on Netflix and CBS All Access, or you can rent episodes from the usual services – Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Vudu.
