Random Star Trek Episode…TNG Season 6, Episode 2, “Realm of Fear”

Posted: July 11, 2011 in Star Trek

Last night’s random Star Trek episode was the second episode of the sixth season of The Next Generation entitled “Realm of Fear.” This was a decent episode on its own and is made even better by it being a Barclay episode.

A science vessel is trapped in a plasma stream and the Enterprise is called in to investigate. They begin to beam over and Barcaly says he can’t go. It turns out he has a fear of transporters. He eventually goes over and encounters something on his return transport. He is ultimately the key to solving the mystery of the science vessel being stuck among other things. The episode is decent but Barclay makes it better.

This episode gets **** out of 5.

Interesting trivia about this episode. This was the first episode to show a transport from the point of view of the person being transported.
