  • It's an "okay" episode, but it comes off a bit desperate...

    Was it fun to see Scotty in the 24th century? Sure. Was it entertaining to see Jean-Luc Picard on the bridge of Kirk's Enterprise? Definitely. But this episode reeks too much of a "sweeps stunt" to be really captivating. It seems too much like an idea for an episode that came out of a corporate meeting...

    "Who can we get to guest star?" "Well, what about Shatner or Nimoy?" "Nah, we've done Nimoy and Shatner's probably expensive." "Well, who else can we get?" "We already did De Kelley in the pilot."

    "What about the others?"

    "Well, you probably won't get a lot of tune-in to find out whatever happened to Chekov or Uhura...what about Scotty?"

    "Yeah, let's get him. Someone call the writers and tell 'em to figure out a way to work Scotty into the show."

    It's worth watching, but it's not one of the jewels of the series.
