  • Disproportionally unappreciated.

    I can't remember the exact details, but this episode definately left an impression on me. It posed difficult moral questions that are relevant above and beyond just war, but in social behaviour at large. The ship becomes a microcosm of today's society, of wealthy exploiters and a poorer subdued underclass in poor working conditions. One could also see a spill-over into the abortion debate. None theless, the scores show this to be the least apprecated episode... it can't possibly be worse than 'Level of Necessity', the necessity of which could be questioned but for a weak attempt at developing Damphousse's character. It only succeeds in underlining how auxillary she is in every other episode.
