Good Story
5 January 2014 | by curtis-harrellSee all my reviews

Being a long time fan of the original Star Trek Series, and other TV shows of that era, I had no problem with the 'low-budget' special effects of this show in general and this episode in particular.

(Or, I could take another tack and say 'How dare they not use the latest technology and insane budgets available to TODAY'S movies and TV shows??)

I could, but I won't, because THAT would be just plain silly.

Judging this show on the only FAIR merits that I can, I pronounce it to be a well-written, well-scripted episode with a dash of 'hard science' which would (and should) appeal to any Star Trek fan.

'Nuff said!
