Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 3
Review : This episodes seems as though it started as a sequal to "A Private Little War", although elements of the 'Iran-Contra' arms for hostages agreements took it over, with a comment on the futility of striving for things you can never have (second chances especially) thrown in. Admiral Jameson could not be more aware of his mistake, and was clearly doing his best to atone for it, yet having no success. Clayton Rohner was somehow convincing as him at all ages (despite the unconvincing make-up as the elderly version) and put in a fairly convincing performance. Marsha Hunt also seemed believable as Mrs Jameson, and her reaction to the admiral's actions somehow fitted, despite being somewhat contrary. In the end, it was a strangely believable story, all about individuals rather than the bigger issues. The hostages were in the background, we did not even SEE them (and 20 seems a tiny compliment for a starliner). Certainly watchable.
