    The episode is conflicted

    the augments kill each other

    there creator turns on them

    the klingons turn on every one

    and archer ,as always, has one hell

    of a fight on his hands.



    soong finally realises the error of his ways

    the augments are finally destroyed and peace is restored



    the action is good as is the plot

    the only objection is the moral stance througth out the trilogy



    there seems to be a predjudical theme througth out the eps

    and other trek series

    that simply improving humans will doom them to

    a life of megalomania and genocide.



    this is never discussed in a balanced manner

    the augments are esentailly human

    some humans are good ,some bad ,some indifferent

    to portray them all in an unflatering light is

    my diffinition of racism



    maybe if earth wasnt so reactionary

    or scared they would have surrendered

    if the augments had seen the light before they were all

    neatly wiped out what would earth have done with them?

    locked them up as they still do in ds9 200 years later.

    (maybe not smike but then he didnt have super powers)



    I sided with the augments from the get go

    and the cod moralising of this hypocritical human society

    only reinforced this
