There are many scripts, script outlines, and episode and movie concepts that never made it onto the screen on The Next Generation. These lost episodes can provide a fascinating window into what might have been, what characters and concepts ended up being modified and used later, and into the behind-the-scenes writing process.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Amy Nelson, Justin Oser, and Joe Keegan discuss the never-produced season 1 episode "Genius Is Pain" by Tracy Tormé and a never-produced version of Generations by Maurice Hurley. The Lost Episodes is a continuing series that will cover many unfilmed episodes and movie concepts over the course of the seven seasons and four movies of The Next Generation.
