Why is the 2nd season episode "Peak Performance" the only episode of TNG not available on Paramount Plus?

It can't be for reasons of episode quality...they left "Shades of Gray" in...

(In case this is some regional licensing thing, I am in the USA)

    Perhaps tweet paramount+ for a reason... they seem to have responded before. ☺

    Probably it's some sort of rights issue. The script went through multiple hands and there were shared rights from the old series to the new series because of the presence of an old series ship .

    Either that or just a plain old cockup. Possibly both

    I can't even log in - they may be having larger issues. More likely the file is just missing the appropriate tag in their content management system so it's not appearing. Did you try searching for it explicitly vs in the season overview?
