Turning point
27 May 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

One of the best star trek episodes ever produced. The pathos the episode is capable to transmit is at very high level, making it very close to episodes like "the best of both worlds" in TNG or "Angels' Sacrifice" in DS9. The episode is a turning point of the whole season, things will happen differently and faster after it. Emotions, honor and battle are the main topics of the episode, and some stress-driven decisions will hit the spectators for the lack of humanity, a concept often shown during season three of Enterprise. 40 minutes of pure star trek style that are likely to be the most remembered of the series. One certain thing is that you won't be able to wait for the following episodes after seeing at this one.
