K'Ehleyr.
 
K'Ehleyr only appeared in the episodes "The Emissary" and "Reunion" on The Next Generation, but her half-Klingon, half-human character left an indelible impression for many Star Trek fans. With her strength of character, her sense of humor, and her diplomatic skills, K'Ehleyr is a unique and beloved character.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Amy Nelson and Justin Oser are joined by special guest Bruce Gibson of Literary Treks to discuss their impressions and thoughts on K'Ehleyr's two appearances in The Next Generation and the importance of her character to the show. They talk about her service in Starfleet, what it's like for her to be caught between human and Klingon cultures, her relationship with Worf and Alexander, and her untimely death.

"The Wounded"

In the season four The Next Generation episode "The Wounded," we're introduced to the Cardassians, a species that has until recently been at war with the Federation and which will become very important in Deep Space Nine. Captain Benjamin Maxwell of the Phoenix has ordered his ship to carry out attacks inside Cardassian space and the Enterprise-D, along with Cardassian military observers on board the ship, pursue the Phoenix. We also learn more about Chief O'Brien's background and his involvement in the Cardassian War as he tries to deal with what he went through during a traumatic time.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez, Amy Nelson, and Justin Oser discuss the powerful and important episode "The Wounded." We talk about our thoughts on the look of the Cardassian ships, uniforms, and the Cardassians themselves, O'Brien's struggle with his feelings toward a former enemy, and whether Maxwell is more motivated by exposing what the Cardassians are doing or by what happened to his family. We also discuss the theme of racism in the episode and what we learn about Picard's history and his diplomatic skills.

The Lost Episodes, Part I.
 
There are many scripts, script outlines, and episode and movie concepts that never made it onto the screen on The Next Generation. These lost episodes can provide a fascinating window into what might have been, what characters and concepts ended up being modified and used later, and into the behind-the-scenes writing process.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez, Amy Nelson, and Justin Oser discuss two never-produced episodes of season one of The Next Generation. The script outlines discussed are "The Bonding" (featuring a different concept than the season 3 episode of the same name) and "Terminus." The Lost Episodes is a continuing series that will cover many unfilmed episodes and movie concepts over the course of the seven seasons and four movies of The Next Generation.
