“Mr Worf, fire.”
It’s been twenty-five years since those words were first spoken and the music swelled to a conclusion, ending the third season of Next Generation.
In celebration of that pivotal moment in Trek history, Barry and I turn the character spotlight onto Commander William T. Riker, also known as Number One, from Star Trek: The Next Generation. What makes Riker tick and just what makes him such a memorable part of the Trek universe? Also, we may delve into the pattern that begins to emerge for Riker-centered stories with the poor guy having to question his sanity a lot.
We also discuss the passing of the late, great James Horner and his contribution to the musical landscape of Trek (and other movies).
