How is it possible that Twilight Zone is being trumped by Next Gen? There are so many plot points in TNG that were lifted DIRECTLY from The Twilight Zone! Data's desire to be human and not a robot, and his whole backstory, is clearly RIPPING OFF the classic TZ episode 'The Lateness of the Hour,' and the Klingon council battle episodes were very reminiscent of 'He's Alive.' Not to mention all the Holodeck episodes being virtually outright stolen from classic TZ episodes.

I just find it really sad that such a horrible show should trump a classic - even 'The Measure of a Man' does not compare to some of the TZ episodes!
