Star Trek: The Next Generation analysis of season 1 episode 18 (Coming of Age)
Hey babes, remember us!? We'rrrrrre back! After a long hiatus, Mike and Nic are back to analyze a relatively tame but lovely episode of TNG where nothing much happens except for everyone being really good friends. It's all #WholesomeContent.
Our analysis focuses mainly on the Starfleet entrance exams aspect of the episode - as two people with careers in learning and development, we have a LOT of thoughts about how Starfleet tests candidates and the limited vision the show had for the pedagogy of the future.
Besides that, we note that this episode was well-written and that all the characters were fully themselves. Interpersonal relationships were on full display, which is always our favorite. Overall, a nice, cozy episode to come back to!
