Quotes

Counselor Deanna Troi: [to Riker, when he would rather hunt for Picard's alleged killers than hold a memorial service for him] Do you think you're the only one in pain? That you have a monopoly on loss?
[getting upset]
Counselor Deanna Troi: Well, I've got news for you. We're all hurting... we're all angry! And like it or not, you've got a responsibility to this crew! And you can't just indulge your personal desire for revenge!

User Reviews

A wonderful series
8 December 2002 | by whotobeSee all my reviews

This is an interesting, thought provoking, and most of all entertaining series. Gene Roddenberry not only gave us a "Wagon Train to the Stars," but he gave us interesting stories reflecting the great values our society holds as truths. I know that "some" episodes were not that good, but that can be said of any series that has a long history. For the most part this program exceeds the mark of excellence in writing and entertainment. The delivery of the writing by Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner et. al. truly brought the Star Trek future to life. The casting of this program is wonderful!

I would hope that anyone with the desire for interesting intelligent science fiction would find this program enjoyable. If a person today is ONLY seeking an action packed thrill ride, then perhaps they may not find the value in Star Trek. But I have loved the program from the first day I watched Captain Kirk in "The Man Trap" from 1966. Since then I have watched the development of Trek with an open mind. I believe that ST-TNG to be the best incarnation of all Trek programs, to date.

In this day and age of terrorism, and threats of war, it would be nice if we could apply more of the philosophies from the possible future of this series. Maybe if more people watched this program the world would be a nicer place!?!
