The Next Generation has a number of episodes exploring the definition of life and the rights of different types of life forms. A memorable example of this type of episode is "The Quality of Life," in which versatile machines called exocomps demonstrate the ability for self-awareness and making decisions that affect their survival.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Justin Oser and Richard Marquez are joined by special guest Patrick Devlin of The Briar Patch to provide a commentary for the episode "The Quality of Life" from season six of The Next Generation. They discuss cute exocomps, orbital mining platforms, the definition of life, and why rocks seem to be everywhere.
