Did You Know?


If you look on the book shelf in Mayweather's quarters aboard the Horizon, there is a white book entitled "Gangsters of the 20th Century," suggesting that this is the same ship Horizon that played a major role in the backstory of Star Trek: The Original Series: A Piece of the Action (1968).

A More Personal Effort
21 March 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

We've been told all along that Travis Mayweather came from a family operated freighter. This is intergalactic grunt work, not very romantic. While Enterprise is exploring some planetary phenomena, the Mayweather cargo ship "Horizon" is passing nearby. Travis asks for permission to visit. What he doesn't know is that he had never been informed of his father's death some six weeks earlier. When he gets to the ship, things are tense. His brother is now Captain. There has always been some tension between the boys and Mom has had to play referee. The brother sees Travis's dropping in as a threat, especially when he begins to make modifications to his ship. Cargo ships are often pirated and this is no exception. The other issue for Travis is that he is sometimes seen as a bit of a traitor for leaving his family behind. I know it's not the most exciting episode, but it is decent drama.
