Star Trek TNG 002 - “The Naked Now”

Any episode that includes frozen people, a woman seducing an android and Wesley Crusher saving the day yet again has got to be relevant to the Christian life, right? Actually, it weirdly is. The Seven Deadly Sins don't sound like a very interesting topic to most people (unless you're David Fincher) and they surely are not intended as a theme in this episode. But, when we jokingly discussed the possibility of looking for the infamous list of transgressions in this TOS homage/sequel, we were surprised to actually find them. We'll talk about where the Seven Deadly Sins come from, why they're not what you might expect and whether this archaic idea has any relevance for today's Christians. Also, Worf needs a hug.
