During the first crash, the truck jackknifed before hitting the car. It was not animated or digitally created; a stunt driver put the truck into a full controlled jackknife in front of the camera. See more »


Abby Corbin says "still no cell service" after Prentiss and Morgan get done at the diner. Ian asks her why it's a bad thing, and she replies that she wants to check on their kids. She forgot that she was staying in a motel and that there was a phone right on the nightstand that she could've used (you can see it on the same nightstand that she put her cell phone on).

Dear, dear Mr Crusher!
29 March 2009 | by (Northampton) – See all my reviews

My, my, my. How terrible to see that a Starfleet cadet grew up to be such a nasty man! Mind you, wasn't it obvious, even then, that such a Mummy's boy would come to a nasty end? Captain Picard must be so disappointed!

I have to say it took me a while to figure out why the actor was so familiar, but once I had, I have to admit he did a great acting job. Love this new series, the opening episode was excellent. The thing I love about this programme is the characters. I'd hope to see a little more about each of them, in the this series, or maybe the next. I hope it runs and runs. Although that may change if the plot lines become impossible to suspend belief for. Keep up the good work writers!
