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!
