Lt. Alara Kitan: Can we just have one conversation where you don't attack my choice to join the Fleet? Please?
Ildis Kitan: We just want what's best for you, and we feel the military is beneath you. It's what any parent would say to their child.
Lt. Alara Kitan: Any parent on Xelayah. You do realize that there are planets where a military career is a very honorable thing. The humans view it with great respect.
Ildis Kitan: [dismissively] Well, yes, the humans. The hillbillies of the galaxy.

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.
