First Contact: ‘Captain’s Holiday’ Season 3 Episode 19

FIRST CONTACT: ‘CAPTAIN’S HOLIDAY’ SEASON 3 EPISODE 19

The crew notice that Picard is feeling stressed and so Doctor Crusher orders him to take a vacation. The Captain is reluctant because he loves to work but eventually agrees to take a trip to Risa when Troi threatens a visit from her mother. While trying to relax he gets embroiled in a plot involving an ancient artefact involving the Ferengi, some unconvincing aliens from the future, and Vash, a human woman who Picard describes as “trouble”.  There’s some walking through caves, lots of tight shorts, some digging, and a really unconvincing prop in this sub-par Indiana Jones style adventure, but a good time was had by all.

Join Andrew, Alex and James as they discuss the merits of location shooting and their problems with people who block book all their holidays.
