Star Trek – The Next Generation:  1×06 – Where No One Has Gone Before

This episode teaches us how dire the consequences can be if you don’t respect Wesley.

I don’t really like it when you’re just told a character is special – we get it: he’s a boy genius.  We’ve already seen him build a working tractor beam out of Lego.  We don’t need some creepy balding guy to come along and tell us that he’s gifted (it seems like the kind of fantasy lots of parents have for their kids, although the decision not to tell Wesley is right, as kids who are told how special they are will often underachieve later as they succumb to pressure).

But as it is a Wesley episode, I give it twenty out of ten, as I’m afraid he’ll find a way to reverse gravity around me if I don’t.
