  • The augment get theres

    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
