fun and fresh
11 March 2006 | by (wichita, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, so what if time travel is the most over-used plot device in sci-fi, particularly in star trek. This episode gives us one grand, independent, fresh perspective on the whole idea. I must of seen this ep. over a hundred times and I still find fresh ideas and hidden messages within the work. It's well worth the time it takes up. You just need a little patience at the start.

Admittedly this is not exactly Bakula's finest hour. he didn't give the most believable performance, neither did John Fleck for that matter. But the congrats here go to the writers more than anyone. Whoever came up with the idea for this ep deserves serious praise. That goes for all eps in it's line. From Shockwave to Zero Hour that is.

This ep may be a cornerstone. It may be one of the most well told eps of it's time. However, because of the relatively poor acting, I must give it only 3 of 5 stars.
