High Culture in TNG.
 
When The Next Generation had a cultural reference or an artistic performance, it was often part of what would be called high culture, such as Shakespeare, classical music, or painting. Although cultural references and performances considered to be among the highest accomplishments of Earth culture go back as far as the first season of The Original Series, The Next Generation seems to bring this type of culture into the lives of its characters more than any other Star Trek series.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Joe Keegan and Amy Nelson are joined by guest Duncan Barrett of Primitive Culture to discuss high culture in The Next Generation and its effect on the show. The topics discussed include literature, the performing arts (including classical music and poetry), and the visual arts (including painting and pottery).
