  • Another one to avoid at all costs. Embarrassingly bad

    This episode reminds me of 'Justice' in many ways (and, funnily enough, none of them good). The Enterprise arrives at a human-like but 'backward' planet, in which the females oppress the males. It's a cliche as old as time itself and it's handled in an utterly ineffectual, downright laughable manner. No subtlety, no nuance and uniformly poor performances by just about all the guest actors.

    The script is just an assortment of cliches - from the whole naff 'Amazon women' type concept, to the 'crew stricken by a mysterious illness' sub-plot...the latter of which is an exercise in utter pointlessness and I can only assume was hastily tacked on in a desperate attempt to add some drama to the meandering mess that comprises the main plot. Overall, this is extremely poor: almost offensively trite and quite embarrassing to watch.
