In the Ranks

Story: Lower Decks
Written By: Rene Echevarria
Series: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Year: 1994

Here is a fantastic episode that does something different and does it well. The focus of this episode is not on any of our main characters, but on four junior officers on the Enterprise. They are trying to advance in rank, to get the attention and admiration from their superiors, and are still learning how to be good officers.
I won’t go into the plot, it is about these young characters, and it takes a look at our ship from a different perspective, which is nice. I think it is a tremendous episode.
