Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season 2, Episode 4 - Rotten Tomatoes

Episode Info

The title character in this tongue-in-cheek Next Generation entry is a charming scoundrel named Captain Thadiun Okona, played by William O. Campbell. The skipper of a disabled space vessel, Okona is accused of being a jewel thief and, even worse, an insatiable womanizer. Meanwhile, Data, in his never-ending efforts to become a full human being, tries to understand the concept of humor with the help of a 20th century stand-up comedian (Joe Piscopo). Also appearing in this hectic episode is future Lois and Clark leading lady Teri Hatcher, in a tiny role as a transporter technician. Written by Burton Armus, Les Menchen, Lance Dickson, and David Landsberg, "The Outrageous Okana" was first telecast on December 17, 1988.
