Picard's Crush

Story: Lessons
Written By: Ronald Wilkerson & Jean Louise Matthias
Series: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Year: 1993

I find this one to be not only kind of lame, but out of character for Picard. He falls for one of his subordinates, which I have a hard time buying as a premise. The fact that it is linked to one of the best moments in the series (“The Inner Light”) does not make me like it any better, it actually makes me annoyed that THIS is the best they could do to follow up on it.
Instant love story, especially focusing on Picard, is a bad idea.
