If left as is, you'll want to change "examine" to "examines", since crew is singular. You'll also want to add a comma after "Farpoint Station". It seems as though it would be totally fair to mention the captain of the ship in the lead, especially since this is the first episode of the series.

Is Star Trek: The Next Generation’s pilot Encounter at Farpoint a parade of exciting new characters, a new ship, and marvelous things, or is it just a bunch of stuff. In the wake of Star Trek’s return to massive popularity on the big screen, marked a new generation of Star Trek.

The next generation, that is. I think he did a fine job with Encounter at Farpoint. It has in both forms held up decently, the book maybe ever so slightly a teensy bit better than the episode. Amusingly, I often found the book to be histrionic in places where the episode managed to exercise restraint and more muted in spots where the actors went ham.

While Encounter At Farpoint was a very formulaic sci-fi story and a rather straightforward Trek adventure, Gerrold unfortunately does nothing to enhance the plot with his writing at all.

Star Trek Insurrection []. The first episode/book (Encounter at Farpoint) began with Q charging us all with being a savage, war like, un-evolved race which was not fit to venture outside our own solar system.

Of course, it is put on Picard to answer for all of our crimes, real or imagined, and setting out to do so was the basis for a series, right up to the finale.

"Encounter at Farpoint" showcases many concepts and philosophies that are particularly grand, while coming with some of the best razzama-tazz eye-candy television could produce in - a combination so good that this pilot story can still rank as one of the top three of all Star Trek pilots we know today.

The universe presented in Encounter at Farpoint still seemed a vast unknown quantity, albeit in a much different way than it did in the original series. The original Star Trek posited space travel as a sort of Western, with Gene Roddenberry famously describing it as “wagon train to the stars.” Of course, the Western genre dies out in the sixties and seventies.

I just love this series. It's not an easy read by any means (especially as non-native speaker), but so rewarding. The hard part is that none of them have fallen short of the pages mark. Encounter at Farpoint isn’t a good episode of TNG, or even a good pilot.

If you look at other sci-fi pilots such as Battlestar Galactica or Firefly, those showrunners do a much better job introducing the tone of the show and the characters responsible for telling this story.Buy the Encounter at Farpoint ebook.
