When McCoy, Spock and Kirk are discussing Alana's condition near the climax, Kirk's hair parts the other way in a couple of close-ups. These shots were flipped to make him face the right direction. See more »
Say hello to your granddaughter
[hands her to him]
So beautiful... The whole universe is ahead of you.
And I did as you asked, with her name. But... I don't understand. Who's Alana?
You had a sister...

Bravo all. This episode is truly remarkable. The costumes and sets, as always were fantastic. The script was exceptional: exciting and incredibly moving. And as mentioned before by other posts here, Mr. Takei is a fireball of energy on screen and captivating to watch. Ms. Moses, The beautiful young lady that played Alana was touching and a breath of fresh air. Ms. Johnson,Alana's mother was sweet and coy with young Sulu,although at times,a little too contemporary in her acting choices. The cast is,luckily, making much progress in their delivery. Kudos must be given to Quinn, by far stealing the show among the repertory cast. Cawley is warming up a little- especially when he played the lighter moments with Alana, That is why I think we all love Shatner so much because he was not all gloom & doom (as Mr. Cwley seems to be playing his take on Kirk )and enjoyed being cocky and swaggering around with the "power.(Please have more fun with Kirk, Kirk loves romping around the galaxy with his triumvirate not plodding around on another days work.) His authoritative scenes of Kirk are too dark and evoke a more Jon Frakes style of acting , which is more suited for a side kick than the head of a starship. Root as Scotty is sufferable in his wooden delivery, it is just Kelley as McCoy that is as painful to watch his acting as it is to look at the hideous dead cat that is being used as his wig. Mr. Lim was certainly fine as young Sulu, and again Mr. Bray was great in the few lines he was given (he was charming and wonderful in the previous episode which featured him). Once again Ms. Irons was completely forgettable as Uhura, nothing despicable just unfortunately bland ( please get a new hair style for her, too 1994!!!) although, I must say in Ms. Irons defense, her brief scene with Takei in Sick bay was her best effort yet and a charming interaction with Takei--but Takei would probably help bring more to any fellow scene player.
that all being said, I anxiously await to see the next episode as surely it will get exponentially better also. Very fun to see the extended journeys and the fun characters that we all grew up with continue on.
Thank you all for you devotion.
