      Star Trek: The Next Generation - Conspiracy is an episode that came late in season one and, while enjoyable and certainly commendable for doing something quite different from standard Star Trek fare, has a few glaring plot holes here and there that make the story a little less enjoyable and memorable. First though, the positives.

      The alien creatures featured in this episode really do appear alien! Plus, considering how they were shown to move through


      stop-motion animation, the production staff did a wonderful job.

      Second of all, the story has a rich science fiction theme which features these alien creatures taking over the bodies and minds of people.

      Lastly, the ending is something spectacular is perhaps one of the most shocking endings ever done on a Star Trek series.

      There are other nice science fiction touches here and there, including worm meals and super human strength and the music does ...


      • an excellent job of conveying the creepy tone of the story and the mystery that continues to unfold.

        Despite all of this, the story suffers from making the alien creatures appear rather stupid and foolish at times, especially the one that took over Admiral Quinn.

        It seems almost as if that alien creature was purposely attempting to be exposed.

        Plus, the leader of the alien creatures does not even attempt to defend itself near the

        end of the episode despite knowing full well what Picard and Riker were about to do.

        Also, the alien leader seemed to lack guards or have an emergancy plan should the plot to take over Starfleet Command be discovered or endangered.

        Ultimately, a race of alien creatures that held a lot of potential were ultimately reduced to a two-dimensional and incompetent threat.

        Quite unfortunate.

        Nonetheless, I still enjoyed the episode and I can still appreciate its better parts.
