With the launch and recent attention of Star Trek: Deep Space 9, the writers wanted to send a message that this show, The Next Generation, was alive and well and continuing to grow. So season 5 ended with a cliffhanger to prove this point. "Time's Arrow, Part II" was Emmy nominated for outstanding sound editing and received the Emmy Award for outstanding costume design and for outstanding hairstyling for a series in 1993.
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez and Amy Nelson are joined with Associate Producer Justin Oser to discuss Season 5 cliff hanger Time's Arrow Part I and season 6 opener Time's Arrow Part II. Data's story brings many issues to talk about like humanity with respect to mortality and the social make-up of the 24th century when compared to the 20th century. Yet again, Joe Menosky brings a fresh and interesting story to Star Trek: The Next Generation.
