One of the best seasons of all of Star Trek. There isn´t a bad or weak episode. The continuity and complexity is outstanding and could only be achieved in the setting of a fixed location. Yet the show never became boring. They went to places, even back to earth. The depth of the characters is amazing and the writers added layer after layer. Everyone had an episode where he could shine. There is the right amount of action, fun, drama - it is well balanced. The storys were building on each other with an all encompassing storyline that connects the beginning with the end of the season which was rare at the time and not without risk. But when this season ends you know you haven´t reached the top of the mountain yet.
