A bit preachy but very powerful & watchable....
1 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Strong emotional performances by regulars and guest stars alike, plus a well written & directed story, make this installment one of the better outings in Season 7.

Not a lot of outer space action in this one but, in the best tradition of Star Trek, the cast tackles a controversial human rights issue and leaves the audience with much to think about afterwords.

An especially enjoyable show for me because it finally underscores a major plot hole in ALL the major Star Trek incarnations (with the exception of Star Trek: Enterprise)- the use of force fields for jail cells instead of ordinary bars. Although force fields are certainly more "high tech" (and allow a better view of the guest star prisoners for the television audience), from a practical standpoint they make no sense at all. Force fields require constant power, maintenance, and are always at risk of disappearing during a power failure (which is exactly what happens here, allowing the prisoners to escape and wreak havoc).

Even in the advanced 24th century, wouldn't just plain old fashioned steel bars be much better for confining prisoners? They are relatively cheap, easy to install, require no maintenance or power source, and won't disappear during a power failure. Just a thought.......
