Jonathan Frakes HATES that one, and for good reason; it was just plain BAD.

I'll definitely support that as the worst episode of TNG ever. However, if I recall, it was not Gene's idea to have a "Planet Africa." If I remember correctly, it was the director of that episode who was at fault, as the script originally did not call for an all-black populace; that was something the episode's director insisted upon.
