Note: Two-part episode titles are based on the episode’s original appearance. For example, “Gambit, Part 1” and “Gambit, Part 2” increase the count for “gambit” by two. “Encounter at Farpoint” and “All Good Things”, airing initially as single, two-hour, episodes, increase the count for the words in their titles by only one.

Note: Episode 139 is titled Time Squared and the title is written that way on-screen. Many sources list it as Time2 and I admit I’d have sworn it was written that way when the episode first aired but you can’t argue with the screen captions even though Time2 is so obviously the title it should have had.

Note: One occurrence of “a” is actually “à”.

Note: You know, considering Troi was a central character for all seven years of the show and kept popping up in other Treks whether she belonged there or not it’s surprising we never learned anything about what her home planet of Betazed was like, other than they get married naked.

  1. Do you have Pluto TV? You could post an article on time you watch the TPIR channel vs the MST3k channel vs the Betty Boop channel vs the Mission Impossible channel vs the Various Star Trek channels vs the Rifftrax channel.

    1. Y’know, I thought I might have Pluto TV from a friend kindly nagging me to get an account, but my browser doesn’t want to autocomplete anything with Pluto in it so I must be thinking of something else.

      (The friend was trying to help by making it easy for me to see his collection of Deputy Dawg cartoons and I didn’t have the heart to say I don’t feel like I need to see all the Deputy Dawg cartoons.)
