Ten best Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes
You want your cinematic, high-stakes, kick-ass Trek? This season three episode has it all: space battles, time travel and major character deaths. A time rift delivers a badly damaged version of the Enterprise C to the show's present day, but it's a strange present day to regular viewers. The Federation is at war with, and about to fold into, the Klingon empire and, hey, isn't that Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby), who should be long dead, manning the security station? It sure is! Thanks to an assist by the timeline sensitive Guinan (Whoopi Goldberg), the crew determines that the Enterprise C needs to return to the past to avert the war that is now raging. Tasha goes with, once she hears she's dead in the proper timeline anyway, and a horrible war is averted (but not before we get a kick-ass space battle between the Enterprise D and some pissed-off Klingons).
