So, without further ado, here is the bottom half of our mutual favorites:
20. Relics (17 points)
It is green.
19. The First Duty (17 Points)
Sorry, Wesley. His bouffant is bigger.
18. Deja Q (17 points)
I am the most interesting man in the world...
17. Clues (19 points)
...and I used to be pretty flexible.
This is a fun episode, no doubt about it. Two of our raters had it relatively high on their lists, which pushed it into the top 20. I liked it more than Kevin did, and it rated a 7 from the both of us. What's really fun, I think, is the neat twist on the "Rogue Data" story, since this is caused by Picard's own order, and the individual mysteries that coalesce into the crew discovering their forgotten encounter with the Paxans. This is one of those episodes that doesn't really get old on repeat viewings.
16. Elementary, Dear Data (20 points)
Sorry to interrupt your workday, Geordi, but we have to go to the holodeck.
15. Encounter at Farpoint (21 points)
Don't worry, Riker. You'll get your chance.
14. Q Who (24 points)
Shoulda gone for it, Geordi. She was leaving anyway.
13. Where No One Has Gone Before (25 points)
By far this region's most nightmarish vision.
12. Chain of Command II (25 points)
Doing the Hokey Pokey this many times in a row is sheer torture!
11. Family (25 points)
Who's your daddy? No, seriously.
OK, that's the first half of our list of the 20 best TNG shows. Tune in next time for our top ten episodes!
