Blog #35: Top 10 Best Trek Scenes, Part V

Hello friend and welcome back to the Trek1701 blog. for the next 5 blog entries I will be discussing my favourite Trek scenes, arranged in a Top 10 format.  Each entry will feature 2 scenes, counting down to my favourite Trek moment. I have included scenes from the movies and the television series. Here we go:
 
 
Picard sits upon the 'Captains Throne' on the bridge of the Enterprise D
 
#2- TNG: Guinan convincing Picard/Restoring history/Defending the Enterprise C
'Yesterdays Enterprise' is perhaps the best TNG episode they made in my opinion. Everything about this episode is great: time-line changed, Tasha is back: Troi and Worf are gone, the Enterprise and her crew are at war with the Klingon Empire, and only Guinan seems to know that things have changed, even though she is not sure herself. Whoopi Goldberg gave perhaps her best performance as Guinan in this episode, both her and Patrick Stewart were great together in this episode. Going on his faith in his friend Guinan, Picard decides to believe her and insist that the Enterprise-C go back in time to certain death in order to prevent the war with the Klingons. The Enterprise D and her crew must battle against 3 Klingon warships in order for the Enterprise C to safely make it back to its own time. Enterprise D suffers heavy damage and it will be destroyed by a warp core breach as a result of being hammered by the Klingons. Commander Riker himself gets killed in a bridge explosion, but the Enterprise C makes it back and time is restored back to normal, with only Guinan seemingly aware what has happened. The last 5 minutes of this episode feature perhaps the best TNG battle scene made.

Locutus of Borg
 
#1- TNG: Picard abducted/Locutus revealed/Cliffhanger
'Best Of Both Worlds' featured the first TNG cliffhanger, and perhaps it's best. Picard gets abducted, turned into a Borg and Riker orders the Enterprise to fires it's deflector dish which will not only destroy the Borg and Picard (Locutus), but the Enterprise itself. This whole episode was great and was perhaps Jonathan Frakes best performance as Riker. Not only is this the best TNG cliffhanger, but perhaps the best cliffhanger in TV history.

And that is that. See you again next time for some blogging. Live Long And Prosper!
