Patching holes in a draughty spaceship
6 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I seem to remember this as a kid growing up in Toronto. I watched it regularly and joyfully and thought it was unique and exciting. I can't remember any plot lines, but the actors were vividly real. About the only thing I remember well is that they were constantly on the alert for miniature pebbles in space that slammed through their ship and they had to run madly around to find the leak before they suffocated. This was always the highlight of the show for me because it brought out dramatically how dangerous and different space could be. I would love to see this again to jog old memories. I always thought Scotty was in that show during all the years of watching Star Trek, so it is a real pleasure to discover that my old memories were right at last~!
