Review : An effective conclusion to what turned out to be a decent story, and the cast did very well with it. It simplified itself, gradually coming down to a simple confrontation. Malik was clearly the Augments' weak point - that was clear from the first part. He was far too rash, clearly leading them to destruction no matter what they did, and so it proved. The ending looked almost like a twisted version of "TWOK", with the bio-torpedo standing in for Genesis, but Malik's reappearance threw that off. It might have worked better if he had tried to ram the Enterprise, killing himself but taking Soong and Archer with him, but the ship blew too early. As for Soong, he seemingly went through what a previous generation of geneticists must have, great hope, then concern, then the realisation that what he had created was out of control (almost a Frankenstein plot) and finally the decision that he had to destroy his own creation. However, there was an interesting dangling thread in his last line - about cybernetics. If he could somehow live another two centuries, then maybe we haven't seen the last of him after all...
