Encounter At Farpoint

Picard and Q from Encounter at Farpoint.

Encounter At Farpoint – a powerful beginning.

It’s about the most dangerous, most ballsy thing you can do in television. Put your whole format on trial – and in your first episodes, no less, to silence any would-be doubters and critics. If it goes horribly wrong, you’re dead in the water before you begin. If you make it work, you have a mandate to go boldly forward, having sold your proof of concept despite explicit, vocalised concerns.

Tony goes right back to the beginning of the Next Generation – Encounter At Farpoint.
