Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 5 (8.0/10) BEST SEASON

by christian94 | created - 05 Dec 2016 | updated - 08 Dec 2016 | Public

Trekkers normally agree that seasons 4, 5 and 6 are the best, but I find season 4 uneven and Best of Both Worlds overrated. Out of the 10 rare episodes I rated 10/10 from 176 total, there was none in season 4, but 4 in Season 5 here 2 in Season 6 (Average = 7.6/10) 2 in Season 7 1 in Season 2 - The Measure of a Man 1 in Season 3 - The Ensigns of Command

See details here in "Trek Perfection": [link]http://www.imdb.com/list/ls052228872/[/link]

I am sure Season 5 is the best season of the lot and here is why.

ST:TNG Season 5 episodes: 10s x4 9s x5 8s x6 7s x8 6s x3

Season Average = 8.0
