Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 2
Review : Not an easy one to review. Firstly, the idea of a 'sleeper ship' war fought over DECADES is ridiculous, unless one assumes something went wrong with this particular ship and the trup was supposed to be a lot shorter, but that is just an assumption. AIUI, they downplayed the threat to the Enterprise, but the old cruiser was still a threat to unarmed colonies, and Picard was put in a position of having to pull the trigger or let the Klingons run amok. That does not really work, all he would need to do is distract them for long enough to let another Klingon ship turn up to collect them. . The trip in the torpedo casing - far smaller than even a Mercury capsule - does sound like a desperate way to travel. K'Ehleyr was an interesting character, and Suzie Plakston was convincing enough. She seems torn between different parts of her divided heritage, neither fully accepting nor fully rejecting either side. I can understand how Worf might be drawn to her, and she to him, but (as often happens) they are totally unsuited. So they both try to deal with it in their own ways. The result is a sort of double culture clash. It worked well enough, but I lost interest somewhat. However, it was convincing enough.
