Filler,...but EXCELLENT filler nevertheless that will make you think!
11 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode is highly reminiscent about an earlier one about a the 23rd century's answer to capital punishment. The previous one starred June Lockhart and introduced the idea of "death of personality"--when a convicted murderer has has personality erased by a telepath and the new personality is devoted to a lifetime of service to others. This time, this theme is only revealed towards the end. Up until that time, a nice monk who is serving aboard the station is being terrorized by horrific images of murder and bloodshed. Eventually, you learn that this sweet-natured monk was in fact a recipient of a brain wipe--as he had been convicted of murder years earlier! This is a wonderful moral quandary that is explored, as he is NOW a decent man but the families of his victims STILL want revenge! The best part of the show, though, is the super-ironic twist at the end that make this an episode not to be missed!!
