On this week’s TNG Rewatch we cover “The Wounded.”
While en route to somewhere unimportant, the Enterprise encounters a new phenomenon that causes Troi to lose her empathic abilities. She handles this development very, very poorly.

This week, we’re taking a break from the TNG Rewatch to cover some of the big news from NYCC and the two new Short Treks. We’ve got Spock. We’ve got Number One. We’ve got Tribbles, and we’ve got H.

The Enterprise encounters the Borg again, and a new commander threatens Riker’s spot in the second chair on the bridge. Guinan offers pithy advice, and the episode features what is possibly the best cliffhanger ending of the nineties. It’s the “Best of Both Worlds” on this week’s TNG Rewatch.
One of the real gems of TNG’s third season sees the Enterprise D reunited with the Enterprise C with disastrous results: a Klingon War, Tasha Yar’s return, and really, really terrible weapon belts on the standard uniforms. The TNG Rewatch for this week is “Yesterday’s Enterprise.”
