A sentimental journey to catch up with one of the best loved StarTrek characters. The basic plot premise is that of investigating x, something goes wrong and someone has to save the day. Its the perfect platform for a last swansong for Chief Engineer/Capt Scott.
The use of a Dysan sphere just elevates this episode even more so.
Locations are aboard the Enterprise, an old class starship where Scottie is found where else but a transporter buffer and outside and inside a Dysan sphere - oooh!
A standard approach and follow through for this plot arc is made that much better for the inclusion of James Doohan. Esp. with his scenes with an uptight Jordi, makes me hope I never treat older people like that! On the other hand Picards treatment of Scottie is spot on from the pov of a trekkie like me! :)
As Scottie boards the shuttle at the end I had a tear in my eye. Great ending to a basic story brought to life by a Star Trek great.
Do watch this, even if its for sentimental value.
