    Are you kidding? For a 61 year old, she's still pretty dang hot.

    I thought it was fun! Though I HATE Yar and can't wait to get to the point where she is gone. I was only 6 when this aired originally so I don't think I remember it from them, but I must have caught it in repeats. I love Q and didn't realize they brought him in so early. It was campy but the gravitas of Stewart almost makes up for anything else.

    Though to this day, his best line was still delivered on DS9: "You hit me! Picard never hit me!"

    She looks a lot better than Gil Gerard.

    Wow... I just watched Encounter at Farpoint this morning, not knowing that this thread existed... What timing!

    I remember hating this episode when I watched it the first time... I remember giving it a second chance, and being disappointed yet a second time...

    This third time was definitely superior to my last two attempts... It's really hard to watch these initial episodes, knowing that it is so much better in subsequent seasons...

    I am just finishing the original Star Trek (i.e., Kirk, Spock, etc...) with my son...and I want to get him into STNG... I hope this first season does not lose his interest...

    Definitely third time is a charm... I was able to enjoy it this time around...

    Ok, late to the show, but just watched the Blu-ray release.

    The HD remastering does look gorgeous.

    As for the show... well, it's clear they were still figuring things out. Data used contractions for most of the first season. The holodeck was a bit different (but perhaps we can write that off from the upgrade in "11001001"). Riker and Troi could communicate telepathically; I don't believe they ever did that again. The "cosmic cheerleader" outfit for Troi wasn't great. The bodysuit she wore most of the series looked better, but it still didn't make sense (from a story point; we know why in real life she had a tight, cleavage-showing outfit). She only got a regular uniform toward the end of the series. The later version of Worf's makeup looked better.0

    I think they expected to use the saucer separation much more often, hence the elaborate effects shot, but it didn't work out storywise.

    She had more than a bit part in Deep Impact, which was probably the biggest hit she was in. I didn't even recognize her when I first saw it, though.
