Star Trek’s The Inner Light

Today on Far Future Horizons we continue our week-long celebration of Star Trek’s Fifty Year Anniversary.

Our video presentation for today is an episode from “Star Trek: The Next Generation”, that has been hailed as the best episode of the entire series titled “The Inner Light”.

"The Inner Light" is the 125th episode overall and the 25th episode of the fifth season of the American science fiction television series Star Trek: The Next Generation. The episode was written by freelance writer Morgan Gendel based on his original pitch. Gendel is credited as writer of the story and co-writer of the teleplay with Peter Allan Fields. It is the penultimate episode of the season and was first broadcast on June 1, 1992.
Charles Evans writing in Fanside goes even further:

‘“The Inner Light is not only one of the best episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, it’s also one of the best pieces of science fiction ever on television.’

An alien probe controls and disables Captain Picard, who wakes up as "Kamin," a resident of the planet Kataan. While the crew of the Enterprise tries to jar the probe's influence, "Kamin" lives through the final, dying decades of his homeworld in the span of approximately twenty minutes in the form of an interactive "ancestor simulation".

This episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” can be purchased directly from Amazon Instant Video.

So without further ado we present “The Inner Light”.
