"Seize the time, Meribor. Live now; make now always the most precious time. Now will never come again."

In a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Captain Jean-Luc Picard's first trek through the stars, Entertainment Weekly has listed what the editors believe to be the top ten best episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I'd be hard-pressed to muster any disagreements with the episodes they chose, but I do think #1 and #2 should switch places. In the history of television cliff-hangers, nothing beats Dallas' second season finale in which a mysterious gunman shoots J.R. Ewing, but ST:TNG's "The Best of Both Worlds" comes awfully close. (The title quote comes from the #3 episode, "The Inner Light.")
