  • A return from a cliffhanger; reset button, not included.

    If you've grown up watching Star Trek,then you would have guessed that this episode would have undone everything that happened in It's Hour Come Round At Last. But, thankfully, the crew escapes the Magog without any Deus Ex Machina or Reset button. In fact, more continuity is added as Harper and Tyr are infested with Magog eggs. Like it's predecessor, this episode is filled with action albeit without all the blood. It would have been nice if the show continued this kind of story telling.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Andromeda: Twenty worlds, joined in a single structure, manipulated by artificial gravity and powered by an Artificial Sun. I guess it's true what they say: No matter how powerful you are, there's always someone bigger and stronger than you. I just never thought it applied to me.

    • Andromeda: Well, on the bright side, the Worldship was heading towards the known worlds anyway, before you just didn't know about it. This way, you can face it head-on.
      Beka: That was such a warship thing to say.

    • Beka: (referring to the Worldship) That's impossible. Tell me that's impossible.
      Andromeda: I don't know.
      Trance: It's not impossible, it's just really unfair.

    • Harper: You want them to feel overconfident? I've got an idea: Why don't we let them paralyze us, bind us to the wall, and infest us with their Magog eggs? Oh, right, we did that already! We've got them right where we want them!

    • Trance: OK, Trance, you can do this, you know you can. There is a perfect possible future where everything will turn out just fine, and the odds of creating that future are only 1,671,000 to 1. More or less.

    • Dylan: (knowing it's only a matter of time until the Magog World Ship arrives) A renewed Commonwealth: before, it was just a dream. Now, it's a necessity.

    • Dylan: Magog suck.

    • (Rommie kills a Magog that was attacking Trance.)
      Rommie: Now we're even.
      Trance: Rommie!
      Rommie: Run, Trance.
      Trance: I'm running, I'm running!

    • (Explosion occur on and around the Eureka Maru)
      Maru Computer: Condition critical. Condition critical.
      Rommie: (sarcastic) No, really? (through the cockpit window, we see the Andromeda) Oh, Andromeda. Am I glad to see me.

    • Tyr: I know but one person idiotic enough to try and rescue three dead men from a Magog hive.
      Dylan: That's me, Captain Idiot. Now I don't know about the three of you, but we have a ship to catch.

    • Dylan: Don't they have any respect for tradition. Whatever happened to just CLAWING people to death?!

    • If we do not live another day,
      say this over our pyre:
      They died like High Guard Lancers
      with their faces to the fire.

      Regimental Hymn of the
      13th Imperial Lancers,
      CY 4233.
