First Contacts in TNG. To communicate with new life and new civilizations through first contact is one of the primary missions of a Starfleet crew and the crews of the Enterprise-D and Enterprise-E are no exception. The first contacts that we see rarely seem to be easy, whether with space-faring jellyfish, subspace aliens kidnapping the crew, or the malevolent collective consciousness of the Borg, but it does make for a great discussion topic. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Joe...

"Booby Trap." "Booby Trap" is a season three episode of The Next Generation that is probably best-known for showing Geordi La Forge falling in love with a holographic version of engineer Leah Brahms. However, there's a lot more going on in this episode that can lead to conversations about war's long-lasting effects, how to solve an engineering problem, when people are needed instead of computers, and much more. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Joe Keegan and Justin Oser are joined...

Favorite Badass Riker Moments. Will Riker is known for being the first officer of the Federation flagship, Captain Picard's right-hand man, and Deanna Troi's beloved Imzadi. However, we think that Will has his share of badass moments throughout the course of The Next Generation episodes and movies. Beard or no beard, Riker's badassery knows no bounds.

Favorite Picard Inspirational Speeches. In The Next Generation, Jean-Luc Picard is a captain, a diplomat, and an explorer, but he is also an inspiration to his crew, to many characters that we meet during the show and the movies, and to multiple generations of Star Trek fans. Picard's power and influence for good flows just as much from his words as from his actions.

Favorite Non-human Species in TNG. Non-human species have been important to Star Trek since its very beginning when viewers first saw the half-Vulcan Mr. Spock. There have been many non-human characters depicted in every series, from those that can be called humanoid to those that look and behave very differently from humans. Over the course of seven seasons and four movies, The Next Generation introduced us to both new non-human species that would become important across 24th century...

The Power of Words in TNG. Star Trek has never shied away from taking advantage of the power of words, from Shakespeare to technobabble to inspirational speeches, and The Next generation is no exception.

Undercover Missions. Whilst Star Trek has always shown us a positive vision of the future, there have been times when stealth and disguise have been required.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Joe Keegan and Justin Oser are joined by guest Christos Giannaris to discuss some of the...
