Goofs

During Elizia's speech/plea to Crael, the Interrogator utters 'I'm not political' and leaves the throne room; however, in the next shot (as Elizia gets into the Transbeamer) the Interrogator is still standing beside Crael. See more »

A Lot of Action but Little Exposition
4 July 2015 | by (South Dakota, United States) – See all my reviews

Commander Koenig and another member of Moonbase Alpha land on a world, where they discover that everyone on the planet is dead. They discover a habitable nearby moon where their Eagle crashes. Koenig is the only one who survives the crash; and, he is taken prisoner.

The episode had high production values as well as a lot of action. The problem was that the episode explained very little about its premise. For example, why was everyone on the planet dead? Why were the people being held prisoner on that moon? Why didn't the woman in charge of the prison tell the prisoners that everyone on the other world was dead? Why didn't the members of Moonbase Alpha die when they visited that planet? Why were all of the prison guards female?

The only thing that this episode had going for it was Koenig's escape from that prison. Otherwise, the episode consisted of a lot of loose ends and unanswered questions which were never resolved by the end of the story. The episode was generally well acted; but, the writing was virtually non-existent. The episode had a lot of style; but, that style was insufficient to overcome the lack of substance.
