Episode Info

Mark Lenard, who played Mr. Spock's Vulcan-ambassador father Sarek on the original Star Trek, recreated the role in this Next Generation episode, which first aired May 19, 1990. Arriving on the Enterprise for an important diplomatic mission, Sarek surprises his hosts with his uncharacteristic mood swings. Even more perplexing is the fact that the Vulcan's appearance coincides with an outbreak of random violence amongst the crew. "Sarek" was scripted by Peter Beagle from a story by Mark Cushman and Jake Jacobs.
