Quotes

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!
Dr. Elise McKennah: Well, the Federation sees no difference between the rights and abilities of men and women.

Faults weigh down this attempt
15 August 2014 | by fcsuperSee all my reviews

Of the Star Trek Continues series, this episode should be held as an example of everything that shouldn't be done for a Star Trek OS rekindling effort.

There's whole subplots that go nowhere, and the whole story itself goes nowhere.

There's too much personality artificially injected into the story. The acting and script nuances just end up being just nuisances. Every attempt to add something a little extra takes away from the story. Actors are doing a lot of little things (improvisation/poor directing choices/bad writing?) that doesn't fit into the personality of the characters they play.

The episode also suffers from poor editing. Several scenes go on far too long. There are way too many shots of unvoiced responses/commentary. Many scenes could cut entirely without impacting the story in any way.

I'll give a pass to the bad acting, since that is holding partially true to the original series. Even still, the acting could be improved a bit to produce a higher quality product more on par with the original series.

The cinematography in many shots is horrible, with bad framing, way way way out of focus camera, and unintentional wobbles. There is no analog with the original series to match this, so it really just comes off being very poor quality, not camp revival.

The new ship's counselor character should have never been conceived. This character is completely out of sync with the rest of the cast, both in terms of the actress playing her and the writing of the character. It appears to be an attempt to connect "modern" audiences of the 90's to the 60's style storytelling. But the difference in acting styles between this character and the rest of the crew horribly clash. It feels a bit like sticking Seinfeld in the middle of Gone with the Wind. This character would benefit from contracting Chuck Cunningham Syndrome.

The other bad casting choice is Dr. McCoy. The actor has no business playing Bones. Mr. Rogers, maybe, not Bones. There is not one ounce of grit, sarcastic humor or righteous indignation in the way Bones is being portrayed. Although, he does have the occasional huff. Casting needs to a actor swap ASAP.

Overall, this episode evokes feelings more a kin to those of Plan Nine From Outer Space rather than Star Trek OS.
