Fun and obviously inspired by "Fantastic Voyage".
19 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In many ways, this episode of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" is a lot like the 1960s movie "Fantastic Voyage". This is because the success of this mission ends up relying on a miniaturized ship and its miniaturized crew.

The show begins near some anomaly (that's Star Trek for 'great big something we cannot really describe') and to investigate it, they decide to miniaturize a runabout and its crew. However, in the midst of this, a Jem'Hadar ship appears and attacks. Before long, the Defiant has been captured and the crew appears to be screwed. Their only chance is to somehow sabotage the ship or, perhaps, the tiny ship can slip in an offer assistance.

This is a rather cool episode. Of course it's sill, but it is sci- fi! What I really liked was the funny ending involving Odo--but that's something you'll just need to see for yourself.
