QUEEG

The plot Holly’s con­tin­ued in­com­pe­tence leads to the ship’s com­puter be­ing up­graded to the se­ri­ously scary Queeg, who makes the crew’s life hell.

Why it’s great Amaz­ingly the only Holly-cen­tric episode in the show’s en­tire his­tory, as the la­conic com­puter gets his own back on his un­grate­ful crew. His “re­place­ment” – played by Charles Au­g­ins with a stare so in­tense it could melt moun­tains – is a won­der­ful cre­ation, prompt­ing some great re­ac­tions from the rest of the cast.

Best mo­ment The punch­line to the episode – SPOILER ALERT!!! SPOILER ALERT!!! – in which Holly re­veals he’s cre­ated Queeg to teach his un­ap­pre­cia­tive crew a les­son. April, May, June, July and Au­gust fool, in­deed.
