  • Close to the original.

    Yes, I figured this episode out before it ended. So why did I reveiw it this higher? There is one simple reason, this episode seemed to connect to the style of the original serious. In fact, I can see this one as one of it's line ups.

    One of the biggest joys for me is Jeffrey Combs, who played two great charactors in Star Trek DS9; Brunt and Weyen. Combs builds another colorful charactor for this show. He by himself as a charactor is, by far, reason enough to watch this episode. In a group of actors who do an ok job, he seems to jump out of the TV and grab you.moreless
