After the crew mourns an engineer who died in a fire, security chief lieutenant Alara Kitan insists to resign, taking the blame for fatal hesitation. While the captain, friend and medical staff urge her to reconsider and seek help instead, strange things happen aboard wherever she goes, even against the laws of physics, as if her nightmares were being turned into reality by some alien power.

My favorite episode so far
17 November 2017 | by menezestraducoes-77274See all my reviews

Let me start by saying Allara is my favorite character in the show, and she is the star in this episode. I felt I was back in my teens watching a TOS episode which had been revamped and had a cooler crew. I was exhilarated with the role of all the characters. Everyone had something to say at the right time and contributed to my warm feelings towards them. Those 2 helmsmen are GREAT. Commander Bortus is a blast! And you've got love Scott Grimes. Thanks, Seth, for a wonderful afternoon with your crew. I wanted to be in your ship as much as my teenager wanted to be on the bridge of Enterprise.
