Still enjoy the show but feel it's become a little too same old, same old with the episode topics, go boldly with new ideas. Felt the original hosts and then Lee in his spell brought some unique ideas and formats to keep the show fresh and interesting each week.

Favorite Friendships in TNG.   From the very beginning, the friendships that we see in Star Trek have been a significant part of the show's appeal and The Next Generation is no exception.

TNG Two Parters. The Best of Both Worlds was one
of the most pivotal cliff-hanger stories in Star Trek: The Next
Generation. TNG created eight two part episodes that extended a
single story into several plot layers and great character moments.
Long before the "long format" approach to story telling, this was
the best way to enhance suspense and draw out a characters arc.
Join Darren, Daniel and Phillip as they compare the strong vs
weaker halves of TNG's two parter's.

Rank #4: 131: Countdown to Farpoint

Podcast cover
Read more

TNG Season Zero Prequel.

We all know and love the trials and tribulations of our beloved TNG
crew throughout seven seasons and four feature films ... but how
did it all begin for them? Daniel, Darren, and Phillip sit down and
create an outline for a "Countdown to 'Encounter' [at Farpoint]"
comic book series. The trio imagines a comic book run, similar to
IDW'S "Star Trek: Countdown" and "Star Trek: Countdown to Darkness"
for the JJ-verse movies, that picks up our characters' lives years
before they joined the ranks of the Galaxy-class
Enterprise-D. 

Earl Grey begins issue one with the dramatic court martial of
Captain Jean-Luc Picard, following the disastrous loss of his first
command, U.S.S. Stargazer. Picard must deal with an overzealous
prosecutor, Phillipa Louvois, as well as a visit from recent widow,
Dr. Beverly Crusher. The next issues focus on young baby-face
Lieutenant William T. Riker and Deanna Troi on Betazed, as the
gold-suited Starfleet officer finds himself choosing between love
and career promotion (along with a new color uniform). Other issues
follow a recently discovered and reactivated android, named Data,
who finds his life choices continually challenged by a Lieutenant
Bruce Maddox. The trio also creates issues focusing on the
Cardassian War, with a young Natasha Yar and Miles O'Brien teaming
up to defend Starfleet, as well as a time jump forward to the
U.S.S. Hood as Ensign Geordi LaForge continually tries to escape
the attention of his meddlesome first officer, Lieutenant Commander
Riker.  

Join Earl Grey as they tell these prequel stories and more of the
early adventures of the soon-to-be-infamous crew of the
Federation's flagship, U.S.S. Enterprise, NCC-1701-D in Season Zero
of The Next Generation.

Dwight Schultz Interview.   Lieutenant Reginald Barclay, played by Dwight Schultz, is well-known for being shy and struggling with addiction to the holodeck, but he also had the technical knowledge and ability to think outside the box that could be used to save the day. Dwight Schultz appeared as the popular and unforgettable Lieutenant Barclay over the course of 11 years in 5 episodes of The Next Generation, the movie First Contact, and 6 episodes of Voyager.  In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Justin Oser, Amy Nelson, and Richard Marquez interview actor Dwight Schultz about his role as Lieutenant Barclay on The Next Generation and Voyager. The discussion includes talking about his longtime Star Trek fandom, sharing fascinating and funny behind-the-scenes stories about working in Star Trek and on The A-Team, and the inspiration that the character of Lieutenant Barclay continues to provide to many Star Trek fans 28 years after his first appearance in "Hollow Pursuits."

Jean Luc Picard.

When The Next Generation was launched, many people expected a captain similar to Kirk. Instead we were given a middle-aged bald Frenchman played by an English actor. It may sound odd, but this proved to be a successful gamble as Captain Picard became a huge part of TNG's appeal. In this episode of Earl Grey hosts Darren Moser, Phillip Gilfus, and Daniel Proulx discuss their favorite captain and how he has inspired them. Philosopher and poet, artist and explorer, all aspects of the character are considered including what didn't work as well as why Picard is Earl Grey's official skipper.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez, Amy Nelson, and Justin Oser discuss death on The Next Generation.

The Lost Episodes, Part I.   There are many scripts, script outlines, and episode and movie concepts that never made it onto the screen on The Next Generation. These lost episodes can provide a fascinating window into what might have been, what characters and concepts ended up being modified and used later, and into the behind-the-scenes writing process. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez, Amy Nelson, and Justin Oser discuss two never-produced episodes of season one of The Next Generation. The script outlines discussed are "The Bonding" (featuring a different concept than the season 3 episode of the same name) and "Terminus."

Phillip talks about creating his many "Star Trek: The Next Generation"-based games. This AMA also reveals a hidden talent of Daniel's, as well as almost stumping the hosts about what non-TNG episodes should be placed in Next Gen.

Command Styles.When it comes to command, Captain Jean-Luc Picard is the pinnacle of Starfleet captains. However, many times in The Next Generation, Picard and his first officer Will Riker turn over command to other members of their crew. Phillip, Daniel, and Darren analyze the command styles of the other personnel who sat in the center seat of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and other starships, during various missions. They study second officer Lt. Commander Data's command tenure on both theEnterprise and the Sutherland ("Redemption, Part 2" and "Gambit, Parts 1 and 2"), Commander Beverly Crusher's time in the captain's chair ("Descent, Parts 1 and 2" and "All Good Things..."), Lt. Commander Deanna Troi's turn in command ("Disaster"), and Lieutenant junior grade Geordi LaForge's time as acting captain ("Arsenal of Freedom"). Earl Grey also discusses that other captain of theEnterprise-D, Captain Edward Jellico ("Chain of Command, Parts 1 and 2"). How did these commanders handle people? What challenges did many of them overcome as first time captains? How many of them consulted Livingston for advice in the ready room? Put on your red shirt so you can tug on it, as Earl Greydiscusses the command styles in TNG.HostsDaniel Proulx, Phillip Gilfus, & Darren MoserEditor / ProducerDarren MoserExecutive ProducersNorman C.

Kurn. In "Sins of the Father," we're introduced to Kurn, a stern Klingon exchange officer boarding the Enterprise-D to temporarily serve as first officer. We find out in the course of the episode that Kurn is actually Worf's brother and has brought news of a judgment by the Klingon High Council that will change both of their lives forever. In the course of three episodes of The Next Generation and one episode of Deep Space Nine, Kurn is tested again and again by the dramatic events happening within the Klingon Empire and between the sons of Mogh. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Justin Oser and Joe Keegan are joined by guest Pierre LaRocco to discuss the character of Worf's brother Kurn. The discussion includes his developing relationship to Worf, his changing place in Klingon society, and his development as a recurring character. Each participant talks about Kurn's four appearances with a view to having a deeper appreciation of the character and Klingon society in general.
