A Whole Lifetime

Story: The Inner Light
Written By: Morgan Gendel and Peter Allan Fields
Series: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Year: 1992

Picard is wounded and manages to live an entire lifetime in a matter of minutes. He awakes in another life, on another planet, and confused. But then he manages to adapt, and live, he ages slowly and lives happily ever after with a wife and kid. It is a beautiful episode. It takes things slow and doesn’t try to bring something threatening into the plot…it really focuses on Picard in away you’d never expect really.
It is one of the best episodes in the series. Don’t skip it, and don’t take my word for it. Watch this one, you won’t be disappointed.
