[S1E16] Legendary ((FREE))



By definition, no perspective is legendary in its own. I believe a collection of positions can be Legendary. This is a Conversational podcast for the everyday individual. We will attempt to navigate the differences of other people from their Perspectives. From these Perspectives will have a greater understanding For mankind.




[S1E16] Legendary



The Enterprise enters the Epsilon Mynos system, searching for the legendary world of Aldea. The planet de-cloaks, and reveals itself to the ship. The Aldeans beam down Commander William Riker (Jonathan Frakes), Counselor Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), and Chief Medical Officer Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) to the planet. The Aldeans explain that they have been unable to bear children for many years and revealed themselves to the Enterprise in hopes they could trade their advanced technology for some of the Enterprise's children so that they can re-populate their world. Riker refuses and the crew is returned to the Enterprise. Simultaneously, seven children, including young Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton), are taken down to the planet protected by a planetary energy shield that the crew of the Enterprise are unable to penetrate. While the Aldean elders attempt to integrate the children into their society, Wesley is shown the "Custodian", an ancient computer system that the Aldeans rely on but do not understand.


Zack Handlen of The A.V. Club said that he was scared by the way he liked the episode despite it focusing on Wesley. He noticed the similarity between the "legendary" planets of Aldea in the episode and Magrathea in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a reference Handlen considered possibly deliberate. He thought that the child-heavy episode wasn't "as bad as it could've been",[10] and gave the episode a "B" grade.[10] Michelle Erica Green in her review for TrekNation, described "When the Bough Breaks" as "tedious, plodding and didactic" with a "preposterous" ending.[11] She thought that the plot element of ozone damage was not optimal and that the quality of the episode was typical of the first season.[11] 041b061a72
