Goofs

When Nog is promoted to chief engineer on board the Valiant, he is given the rank of Lieutenant Commander. However, throughout the rest of the episode, he is seen with only two pips (one full pip and one "hollow" pip) signifying the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade. See more »

Quotes

Chief Dorian Collins: You know, the sun only comes up once a month on the moon. Every lunar morning, my father and I would put on suits and... hike out across the Sea of Clouds. We'd stop at this collection of boulders on the western rim and... just wait for the sun to come up. Dawn is so... shocking on the moon. One minute you're in the darkest night you can imagine. And in the next instant the sun lifts up and this... glorious, pure light just... explodes across the surface... I felt like I met God every morning.

Star Trek, Jr.
23 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the show "Star Trek: The Next Generation", Wesley was one of the most hated characters in the series. Imagine an entire crew of Wesley Crushers!! Oh, the humanity! Inexplicably, that's kind of what happened here with "Valiant"...and entire ship where the crew are teens!! If the idea sounds really dumb, then you kind of have the idea of this show!

Then the show begins, Nog and Jake are on a runabout and they're being chased by a Jem'Hadar ship. Fortunately for them (and not the audience), the USS Valiant arrives to save their young butts. The pair are shocked, however, when they are beamed aboard the Valiant and find that the crew is made up entirely by the teenagers from Red Squad (an elite group of Starfleet cadets). Nog is in love with the idea--but Jake things the Captain of the ship is a nutter who is addicted to stimulants.

In many ways, this is like watching an episode of "Muppet Babies". While just about everyone likes the Muppets, this show was marketed to small children and was nausea-inducing for almost everyone else. Embarrassingly bad and stupid--so much so that it makes you wonder if the show had simply run out of ideas. Nuff said....
