DEEP SPACE NINE VS THE NEXT GENERATION ROUND 8

Round 8

DS9, season 7, ep 7, Once more unto the breach

I can never get enough of Klingon stories and Im grateful we got lots of good DS9 ones. Kor is growing old and senile, and asks Worf to help him die a warriors death. The idea of what honour means to such a complex character as Worf is always fun to explore, especially with such a good actor as Dorn.

TNG, season 6, ep 21, Frame of mind

Riker is imprisoned in alien insane asylum and told he has committed a murder, in an episode that would fit right in line with the darker tone of DS9. Frakes is amazing as a tortured Riker, in a episode unlike any previous episodes in TNG.

Winner

TNG Frame of mind 

In a way this feels like a cheat, as it actually feels like it should be a DS9 episode. But it just shows the range of the writers and how flexible and confident they were becoming as the show started to come to an end.
