Episode 287: Wesley Crusher RIP in peace

January 23, 2019

Just kidding -- he's not dead. His career might be, though, after a suspicious accident at Starfleet Academy. It's Star Trek: The Next Generation and "The First Duty," And Ron Moore's got a writing credit, so you know there's a dead pilot and cover-ups and lying and totally boss speeches. But then we have to watch "Cost of Living" and "The Perfect Mate," and they suck and are terrible, so keep the focus on the good episode where it belongs. Afterward, things get heated (even more so) on The Wire, as there's an officer down and the entire city goes on "The Hunt."
