worse episode of the series
30 December 2013 | by seraphin01See all my reviews

Well not much to say on this episode, it's just as bad as it sounds In many ways it looks like one of those filler episode in Voyager in those holographic chamber.. Completely useless to the story line, lots of freedom taken from the whole concept of star trek..

Basically it looks like an episode where the staff had a western village and props available and made a story around it, not the other way around..

The acting is such a caricature, Archer just doesn't fit at all in it, maybe Trip would have been a little bit more convincing but his Texan accent is already over the top in the series...

Plus it's supposed to have a moral about forgiving, tolerance etc.. but in the end it kinda sounds wrong, as if the oppressed are the nice and kind white cowboys instead of the black slaves in America or Indians.

So yeah everything looks and sounds wrong in that episode, possibly the worse of the whole enterprise series, especially since Season 3 was getting so good and intense, this just brings back the sad ghosts of voyagers worse episodes.. to be forgiven fast, and can totally be skipped even since you won't miss it for the upcoming episodes

my note: 3/10
