Lt. Yar is abducted by the leader of a people who abide by a strict code of honor, which requires her participation in a fight to the death.
Review: Well, if you were a huge fan of Star Trek: The Original Series, this was right in line with that. Some regard this episode as being one of the worst (besides the clip episode at end of season two) in the Star Trek: The Next Generation. The plot is not the greatest. I didn’t think it really advanced the crew in terms in development early on in the first season. Very disappointing. The 1.5 out of 5 might be generous, but I am reserving the 0 out of 5 for the clip show. Even the acting in the action screens with both Yar and Yareena were not good. At least Picard got his vaccine he needed. Yay! The episode also saw the first appearance of the black and yellow grid structure of the empty holodeck. Captain Picard showed pride in his French heritage in “Code of Honor”. This character quirk was only repeated in the following episode “The Last Outpost” before being removed from the character. Which was too bad, I would have liked to seen more of that in future episodes.
My Rating: 1.5 out of 5
