Not what I was expecting from the new season. Very underplayed episode. Yet, it had enough scenes of action and drama that saw a satisfying end to this particular story.
Im in two minds if the time-travel episodes are just worth the inclusion. Id rather see more of the pre-Kirk universe but hey.
However, I did enjoy the story enough to overlook the obvious flaws in the plot, like creating the comm device to communicate with TPal. Also having the locked crew quarters of the time traveller - which should have been the first port of call for the Suliban or any other enemy worth a damn.
Yet, with the crew working together to overcome their predicament the conclusion we expected came true.
Not the best made story but still exciting enough to watch through.
