      Star Trek: The Next Generation - Code of Honor is an episode that puzzles me. I do not know if the writers of the episode were deliberately trying to be racist or if they were driving at something else, but the way the episode is scripted makes me wonder.

      First of all, the Enterprise visits a


      planet where all the inhabitants are black.

      Second, the inhabitants have inferior technology and an almost tribal culture.

      Third, they possess an exotic medicine that is unique and cannot be replicated.

      Fourth, the leader abducts Tasha Yar, a white woman because he is attracted to her and wants her to serve him.

      These are just some ...


      • of the things that stuck out in my mind as being stereotypical and inaccurate as I was watching the episode.

        The episode itself is terribly bland and the plot tries to make sense, the viewer never really is given enough opportunity to learn about the alien culture for the plot to really resonate.

        Tasha is given

        a chance to once again show off her refined and extensive Starfleet combat training.

        I will say that there are some good camera angles and special effects in the episode, but other than that, this episode is nothing but a bland and potentially offensive outing that is only a slight improvement over the atrocious previous episode, “The Naked Now”.
