Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 2
Review : Not entirely brilliant, but it had its moments. The acting seemed a bit off in places, certainly in Bill Shatner's case where he went way over the top a few times. However, I can't fault DeForest Kelly for his ultra-cautious McCoy in this one. Ultimately, both he and Kirk were both right and both wrong about how the situation turned out. The story worked fairly well, the idea of ancient survivors from a race of super-aliens is given yet another take. Different enough, and all three were different types of people, trying to capture different aspects of an entire culture in three people, and sort of succeeding. Henoch was out for power, Thalessa just wanted her life back and Sargon seemingly wanted to become a permanent father figure. Curiously, Sargon means "True King" in ancient Akkadian, a name taken by a usurper. The new VFX were limited to the planet, but much of the surface looked like oceanic crust with ridges and fracture zones, so not bad. OK, this was strange in places, badly acted in others, but it still sort-of worked. Finally, I've often wondered what happened to the half-built android bodies. Did a certain Dr Soong acquire them at some point?
