Shades of Gray is the 22nd episode in season 2 of Star Trek – The Next Generation.
Words can not describe how terrible this regurgitated trash is. Honestly it’s a stain on the brand that is Star Trek, and the writers should be ashamed. Absolutely disgusting. This episode literally made my physically ill. I actually scratched the DVD from my DVD set just to ensure I will never have to watch it again. That meant also losing 3 other episodes from the season too, but it’s worth it to defend myself or anyone from watching this pathetic excuse for a rotting sack of shit.
People claim that the appalling ‘clip show’ was due to a writers strike at the time. Maybe those writers should have stopped striking and tried working a bit harder? The irony is that because of a temporary, situational issue at that small time in their lives, they created a monstrosity that would damage the brand forever. I doubt they planned that, but they will forever have to live with that shame.
