Excalibur encounter a well funky looking spaceship with explosive decompression damage and a dead crew.
Except not all of the crew died of axphixyation some them died of different things shooting stabbings etc.
it seems to have been a mutiny but then is the really wierd part ,a chain of aliens linking hands across a coridor to a cyrotube,Containing a live speciem.
Once aboard he goes into cardiac arrest and a junior doctor foolishly breaks quarintine to help the poor slob. A strange energy passes from the alien to the to the doctor who imediately acts diferently.She quickly spreads through out the crew by touch and strange alien writting begins showing up all over the walls.As some of the infected reach Max ellerson in the mess hall he notices the process take place and runs for his life.The infect gives chase and a marine draws his gun to cover max as he boards the lift,he gets shot in the neck for his troubles.Ellersion reaches the bridge and tells gideon to seal the ship but is it too late.
okay the A plot is good and creepy sci fi fare with some good twists and drama
the b plot is what spoils the show
the designer is a gay stereotype
his associate is david wells
former head of nightwatch
how the hell did he get a job after
All the nightwatch did under president clark?
Let alone a goverment position.
the b plot is a poor excuse to justify some of the difference in the next batch of eps
(which are actually the first batch just shown last)
So we have them poncing around with fabric and so on
highy un amuseing.
Fast foward the b stuff
and Id give it an 8
but as is its a bit uneven
