Star Trek TNG "The Measure Of A Man" I had the pleasure of hearing Melinda Snodgrass speak to a room of about 12 people at a convention in Columbus, OH around the time Season 2 had just finished production. She is a well spoken and intelligent woman. A law background as I recall from that long ago day. I consider her script "The High Ground" to be the best material ever written for Beverly Crusher. She, along with Hans Biemler, Richard Manning and Ira Stephen Behr, left TNG after clashing with the style of 3rd Season Head Writer Michael Piller. I know many fans worship at the alter of Piller, but I thought he brought in a safe, mild and blander approach to the show. I wish those writers could have stayed with TNG longer, but two of them went on to do great thins with DS9.
