Did You Know?


The Epic of Beowulf is a Viking legend, known to us only after being written down in proto-English some time between the 8th and 11th centuries. The only known copy of the original story was discovered in the late 18th century after just barely surviving a fire in the repository where it was held. See more »


When Freya first confronts The Doctor, he already knows her name and her rank - from reading the Beowulf saga. But Freya is nowhere mentioned in the Saga. There is, around line 2022, one and only one mention of the king's daughter, Freawauv, who serves the warriors wine - no clue as to her age or whether she had any military or other authority.

Freya: Lord Schweitzer! We thought the Grendel had taken you.
The Doctor: Not... entirely.

A lot of good, a lot of bad.
5 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Heroes and Demons" is the sort of Star Trek story that I generally hate--a holodeck tale. Too often in the various Trek shows this gimmick was overused--as if the writers had run out of ideas so they placed the crew in the old west, the time of Robin Hood or in a Sherlock Holmes story. I realize some people liked these sort of shows but they so often had little to do with the series and seemed like filler. In this case, however, there still is a bit to like...even if it is set within the story "Beowulf"--and as a student, I HATED "Beowulf"!

When the show begins, Torres and the Captain are performing an experiment. Little do they realize that they are NOT dealing with some inert space material but a living being. The entity takes up residence in the holodeck and that is a problem because it then attacks folks who try to battle Grendel--as Grendel is this entity. So, because it is harmful to people, the Doctor is given his chance to go one a mission into the program and try to rescue three lost crew members.

It's nice seeing more of the Doctor. He's definitely my favorite of the crew and seeing him come into his own in this story is a lot of fun. Enjoyable but overall a mixed bag.
