Star Trek: The Next Generation analysis of season 1 episode 6 (Lonely Among Us)

In an episode so jam-packed with random shit, it's hard to even say what this episode is about but we pull from the many threads to talk about themes of vegan issues (indigenous hunting grounds, lab-grown meat, factory farming, etc.), education systems, the Federation's parallels to the EU and other institutions, Nic's rage at TNG's obsession with Sherlock...

It's a ridiculous, fun, wild, nonsensical episode and we are equally wild and ridiculous while analyzing it. Somehow we get on a running joke about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and laugh so hard we can barely breathe at certain points. It's classic TNG shenanigans and we're here for it!

Our amazing intro and outro music was created by the supremely talented Trevor Andrew Hamer. If you'd like to work with Trevor or see more of his work, you can find him on: Instagram | YouTube
