Strained Relations
18 March 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is the classic story of two beings who are at war but must depend on one another to survive. Tripp's shuttle is shot down for no reason, other than it is assumed he was trespassing in restricted space. The Enterprise is in contact with the captain of the enemy ship. Most of the episode involves the two combatants trying to figure each other out. There are significant beatings of both members. Tripp needs parts from the other guys ship to put together a communications device. Eventually, a kind of friendship develops between them based on respect and trust. This plot has been done a hundred times, but it is nicely presented here.
