Quotes

[Lt. Davis is holding Kim at gunpoint, doubting the latter's claim to be an American civilian]
Tom Paris: [as Davis] Look, I don't have time for 20 Questions. You say you're an American? All right, then. If Betty Grable came around that corner, what part of her would you be staring at?
[Kim thinks hard, but doesn't come up with an answer]
Tom Paris: [cocking his gun] Sorry. Time's up.
Harry Kim: Her legs! I-I'd be staring at her legs!
[after a moment's hesitation, Davis smiles]
Tom Paris: Bullseye - lucky for you.

You either love it or you hate it....I hated it!
23 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I've notice that the reviewers either loved this episode or hated it....I sure hated it! It seems that some viewers love the extensive use of the holodeck and a contrived use of Nazis (yes, Nazis) in a sci-fi show. I just thought it looked as if two things occurred at Paramount. First, they ran out of ideas for the show. This isn't surprising since all the Trek series put together consisted of 28 seasons of shows!!! Second, the studio had a back lot and a lot of German uniforms and so they decided to use them...even though the reason why you see them in the show seems dumb to some (and you can count me among them).

When two-part episode begins, the Hirogens have already taken over the ship. They've imprisoned many of the crew in holodecks and experience the hunt in various settings throughout history or on different planets. You see one briefly of a Klingon hunt but most of this nonsense is set in Occupied France during WWII--Nazis and all. It seems that one of the leader of the Hirogen thinks that the holodecks might be used for their hunting impulses.

This second portion begins after there is an uprising and some folks in the holo simulations realize it's all fake and that the Hirogen are in control. The rest just play out the silly WWII crap. Can the crew retake the ship before most of the viewers turn to another channel?!

All in all, I found the idea of the Hirogen using the holodecks not bad. But I found that the whole Nazi angle and the extensive use of the holodecks awful. In fact, I have always felt that the more that an episode uses these gimmicks the worse the show. And, these two shows are set almost exclusively in these god-awful holodecks!
