Death in TNG.
Although we don't see deaths on The Next Generation very often, when a character does die, it can have a profound impact on the viewer. How are the effects of death portrayed on the show and what does it mean in our own lives?
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez, Amy Nelson, and Justin Oser discuss death on The Next Generation. Topics discussed include how religion and death are shown, how mourning is depicted, deaths we wish hadn't happened, and how the age and importance of the character who dies may affect how we feel about it.
