Star Trek returns to the Nazi well again
14 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Why is it every Star Trek series feels the need to include a WWII episode? And once again, writers imagine that the only allies liberating France are the Americans - nevermind the massive involvement of Brits and Canadians in the Western advance.

If the Hirojans were really out for a challenging hunt and were adamant on using the 20th century for some reason, they should have chosen jungle stalking in Vietnam or one of the Pacific campaigns, or even a sniper battle in the trenches of WWI, not a scenario in which the Nazis had already conquered France and their prey were oppressed and undersupplied resistance.

This two-parter seemed like an excuse to use to use existing wardrobe and sets around the Paramount lot to save money and wrap it in a thin veneer of plot. The bloodless gun battles and lack of any real tension grew boring. If you want themes of love and war in this setting, there are far superior stories such as Black Book.
