There were a couple eps of TNG that were well above

"The Inner Light" - where Picard lives almost
a whole lifetime on a dying planet and learns to play
the penny whistle.

"Darmok" - Paul Winfield as an alien whose speech is
unintelligible, until the crew figure out that the
Tamarians speak exclusively in metaphors. A very good
episode even if they may have lifted the idea from
_The Citadel of the Autuarch_ by Gene Wolfe. Oh, and
Ashley Judd plays an ensign in this episode.

Seems there were one or two others that were
and that's in a run of seven years. I was firmly in
Berman and Braga Must Go camp until they rolled out
Enterprise. I still think maybe it'd be better if
two started raising prize roses or something and let
some new blood move Enterprise up to a new level.
