#225 – ‘Imaginary Friend’ TNG S5E22

An unexpected visitor causes a ruckus in ceramics class. Join your especially-corporeal hosts as they examine this “middling but memorable” episode of TNG, which may have benefited from a few more rewrites but is elevated by excellent acting, clever concepts, and one of the more charming technobabble conversations between Geordi and Data. We also discuss other prominent imaginary friends in fiction!

Spoiler warning! We dive right into a detail-rich discussion of this episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, so if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet – beware!

Next week: Dan’s podcast-topic-selecting algorithm will generate something truly enlightening for us to discuss!

Note that this and all episodes of the It’s Got Star Trek podcast contain explicit language and, frankly, an unnecessary amount of offensive content, so the show is intended only for adults and really really cool kids.
