Vincent’s Comments: Chris’s Star Trek Problems brings up a problem I have with Star Trek The Next Generation, in fact all incarnations of Star Trek. Almost every week they’re faced with a horrible thing that will kill everyone. Now, if space is that dangerous for the crew of the Enterprise, what’s it like on all the other ships in the Galaxy? What about Starfleet vessels with crews that aren’t as top notch as the Enterprise? Is it just constant death out there? I know that’s not the point of Chris’s comic today, but it just had me thinking.

Love Picard’s face in the last panel.

    Your musing seems to be right on. Almost every time another Starfleet ship is shown in TNG, it is destroyed. Think about all the ships that got thrown away at Wolf 359!
