Storyline

"Days of Yesteryear" would be a more appropriate title, as Data finds an old ship in space that's been there for years, with 3 people who've been frozen for over 400 years. Meanwhile, Starfleet sends the Enterprise to the edge of the Romulan neutral zone, where star bases and their personnel have disappeared after decades of no contact between the Federation and the Romulans.

Leftist View of Big Business! Get a Life.
2 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree that this is low octane episode. Three people are beamed back to the Enterprise after being "frozen" based on the premise that if a cure is found, they can be revived. Over three hundred years later they are. The people are a young homemaker, a cutthroat businessman (according to one reviewer a leftist who makes capitalists look bad), and a good natured ne'er do well guitar-playing drunk who enjoys the heck out of his new digs. These people become real nuisances, getting in the way, and not understanding the gravity of things. Meanwhile, a serious confrontation with the Romulans is about to take place. This is serious, but certainly isn't shown that way. The confrontation and the three passenger theme are underdeveloped, but it certainly isn't worth a one rating. Quit letting your prejudices speak for you. These are reviews.
