Star Trek: The Next Generation (1993) – Force of Nature, and Inheritance

Captain’s log: stardate 47310.2 Naren Shankar pens this episode that first aired on 15 November, 1993.

  Lots of trouble rolling through Defiance this week as Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas) gets wrapped up in a bit of an adventure all while the land is besieged by razor rain (pieces of Votan ships coming down and slicing things up – messy). Irisa races into the Badlands after she has a vision of Sukar…

Defiance S01E06 – Brothers In Arms

  Rockne O’Bannon penned the script for this week’s Defiance and I love how he opened up the world a little more and it seems that everyone in this town has a secret or two. I’ve been intrigued with the world of Defiance since its first episode, I’ve loved the writing, the characters and the…
