Lou Ferrigno appears in green skin as an Orion reminding us of his earlier Hulk days. He has many more lines in this than he ever spoke throughout the entire Hulk series. See more »


Dr. Elise McKennah: Those are some pretty nasty bruises. Are you sure you're okay for a walk?
Lolani: You're kind to ask, but we Orions are build quite sturdily.
Dr. Elise McKennah: Of that, I have no doubt.
Lolani: What a beautiful ship, and men and women working along side each other equally!

Star Trek gets progressivism right, finally
13 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Despite some painfully awkward moments, the Star Trek Continues crew have pulled together an excellent modern look at womens' struggles. In doing so, it subverts many expectations - Star Trek lore expectations, TV trope deployment expectations, and more.

The worst offense this episode makes is the horrible, couldn't-care- less performance from Grant Imahara (Sulu) during the most dramatic scene. It's like he wasn't aware there was any dramatic tension or emotional weight to the scene. Or a camera rolling.

Bearing in mind that this is episode 2 of a fan production, and that TV sci-fi is typically an embarrassment to itself all the way into the fourth season, "Lolani" is near flawless, with emotionally effective cinematography, music, acting, and script.

People who think Star Trek shouldn't ever address politics or social issues, might never watch Star Trek Continues again after this episode. If you've been waiting for the next episode on par with TNG's "The Drumhead" -- this is it.
