Brittany Smith takes us to a discussion of another two-part title from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Part 1 and Part 2 of “Time’s Arrow” finds the Enterprise crew doing some time traveling, meeting Samuel Clemens, and bringing Data back from the (sort of) dead. Brittany talks about why this episode has some of her favorite TNG components, why the plot holds up, and how it informed her reading of Mark Twain’s works.
