Dylan fighting Ellsbett on the Maru, she uses a mono-molecular lash. That Sci Fi favorite, mono-molecular wire, would be sort of infinitely sharp because it is sort of infinitely thin. But it could not move like a whip because it has no mass to speak of, nothing to carry momentum from handle to tip. To demonstrate, take a heavy rope or garden hose and do whip moves...it sort of worked. Now take six feet of kite string and try to whip it...doesn't work. See more »
Once the show got into its stride, this episode represents the best the series had to offer. Sharp, witty dialog supporting suspenseful action. Beautiful characters. Great battle maneuvers. And Captain Dylan Hunt.
Science fiction, at its best, is human. This story portrays the different kinds of people that inhabit the Andromeda universe. The characters are multi-dimensional.
And did I mention great battle maneuvers? To be able to put that into a great TV episode is a treat. But it is one of those things that you can look back on, after watching the entire series, and see where Hunt outshines the Nietscheans.
