I'm not a huge Family Guy fan...but I couldn't resist when the previews said that the entire Star Trek TNG cast were involved.

Thing is...there wasn't nearly enough time. The side story (Meg finding God through a Kirk Cameron TV show, and then the attempts by Brian to prove that religion is false) could easily been the main plot of another episode.

The ending also confused me. Apparently, the Family Guy world exists in Adam Wests' lampshade. Or was that Rob Lowe's lampshade?

There were some awesome laughs here, but unfortunately, this episode misses the mark.

Well, according to Peter before the first commerical break, it was in fact a Meg episode. He tried to warn you: he even gave you the clicker to change the channel.

In all seriousness, it was a interesting ep, not among the best I have ever seen but better than usual for this season. I liked the the Star Trek: TNG plotline, though it really wasn't the main one like they were showing on the commericals leading up to this. My favorite part was the mistreatment of "Whill Whheaton" by Patrick Stewart. As for the Meg storyline, it was ok and I laughed at the end with Rob Lowe and Adam West as roommates (oh, and God as Flash Gordon). But having to see Brian give yet another speech about how everyone other than a mega-liberal is an purely evil person is getting REALLY tiring. I get it: Seth hates Republicans and conseratives, move on already.

The other thing that threw me off was the lack of Peter involvement. I guess it's needed though, since he can be a bit much to watch at times like Homer Simpson. If they can do more stuff like TNG, Handi-Quacks, and Stewie's music video, they might get to the greatness they once had. Until then, American Dad is going to stay the much better of Seth's two shows.

I was highly disappointed. Ok, so we were even warned it was a Meg episode. Except all the hype for this specific episode was that the TNG cast was going to be in it. It was the TNG episode. So why on earth was there basically two episodes in one?! It left the TNG part, the part that was actually *funny*, lacking in time. Basically, all of the funny/TNG parts were seen in that trailer for the show Fox posted. We got the meat of the episode before the episode aired. So the whole episode was just a big waste.

I loved the TNG bits, and the Meg bits were "meh" at best. I agree, they should have been two separate episodes.

I could easily watch Stewie trying to wrangle the TNG cast for 30 mins. In fact, I wish they would do it once a year like The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror.

I also can not condone people complaining about the Meg storyline when the show itself told you it was ok to change the channel. As a Star Trek fan this was great. They could have done more with the TNG crew, but I do get the feeling we will see them again since Seth never lets anything cool on the show not come back at least once more. The last few episodes have been hysterical though and I do hope they do the Empire Strkes Back episode for the finale instead of the rumored season premiere next year.

I can't believe that TNG's been off the air for fifteen years.

I got to catch a sneak preview of this last night, and holy crap is it hilarious. The first movie is probably better, but they manage to take so many of the stunts in this one to another level that really makes you fear for their safety and/or lives.
