Reviewer : sibelius Rating : 4
Review : There are a lot of plus points to this episode; Scotty's return, The massive Dyson's sphere and getting to see the E-A bridge. However, it was a fairly routine story otherwise. Explore, get stuck, get rescued.

Review : "Relics" is a top notch episode. For the fist time in nearly a hundred (Trek) years, we get to see Scotty! And the way he works with Geordi to solve the problem is pure genius! My hat's off to James Doohan and LeVar Burton.
Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 5
Review : Great episode from stem to stern. James Doohan and LeVar Burton give brilliant performances, showing the contrasts and similarities between the two engineers very well. Scotty's reaction to all the new technology was exactly what you would expect, and the bit where he was in engineering and in the way when he only wanted to do something to help, that was bang on, and I really felt for him. In a way, the Dyson Sphere - remarkable structure that it is - becomes a side issue. It's always the little things that make the biggest difference, and they got them right all the way through. Scotty materializes with a TOS transporter effect - looks like the Jenolin had old transporters even when she was flying. The recreation of the original bridge set was perfect - I stood on that set in the London Science Museum a few weeks after first seeing the episode - you could feel the history. Not only was it there for nostalgia, but it set up the key scene between Scotty and Picard. They're both old men (supposedly only ten years or so apart) and I'm sure they had a lot to talk about at some point. It makes me wonder what the chief engineer of HMS Dreadnought would do if he materialized on the Ark Royal...
