Story: Time’s Arrow II
Written By: Jeri Taylor
Series: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Year: 1992

Only slightly better than the first episode. This one has the slightly fun element of our characters trying blend into 19th century society. Riker is a police officer, Dr. Crusher is a nurse, Picard is an actor, Geordi must play actually blind, Worf is a werewolf…
The problem though is that the episode is still kind of slow and dull at times, and you get the sense that this could have easily been just one episode. An average one episode. The story just doesn’t captivate.

Oh and the writers idea of Mark Twain is basically just a cooky old man that grunts and makes old man noises and “hmms”. It is pathetic. Who wrote him that way, performed him that way, and directed it that way?
