Storyline

As Kirk, McCoy, Sulu and geologist D'Amato beam over to a geologically unique planet, an attractive woman suddenly appears in the transporter room and, with but a touch, kills Transporter Chief Wyatt. They're not quite sure who or what she is. They also find themselves unable to contact the Enterprise, which has been flung nearly a thousand light years across the galaxy. The woman soon re-appears, both on the Enterprise and on the planet, touching/killing D'Amato and Engineer Watson. While the landing party faces extermination from this mysterious woman, the Enterprise, endeavoring to return, faces possible destruction from a subtle malfunction administered to their warp engines.

kinda okay, I guess (wow--what unbridled enthusiasm)
11 December 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This isn't a bad episode, though it certainly isn't a good one. The problem, though, that makes this such a mediocre episode is the character Lee Merriwether plays--she's robotic in all her ways and this ISN'T conducive to creating a memorable character. I do understand WHY they chose to have her play the part that way, but still, there was just so little life in the show and having SOMETHING exciting occur would have helped. Perhaps Lee could have been seductive or more "real" and then lure the people to their death or perhaps another plot element could have been added. All I know is that the plot was thin and so was the action. While mildly interesting, this isn't a glowing endorsement and this episode is pretty typical of many of the lower quality episodes of season 3.
