Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 2
Review : A story that went from the sublime to the ridiculous. It started off very well, with the story of the strange disease that crystallised the entire crew of the Exeter (although one would have thought their skeletons would stay intact, but perhaps they crumbled). Then we went on to see the crazy Captain Tracey and the strange planet where everyone lives a very long time). That was developing into a good story, but it turned into a USA mutual appreciation society at the end. Unless it was intended as some sort of send-up, Rodenberry was well-known for his dislike of religion, they went completely overboard. Seeing symbols of a political system as "holies", and all the hoo-hah surrounding them, was far too far. The US Constitution has some fine words, and I admire the people who wrote them, but this went too far. OK, the new VFX. The Omega IV with its big supercontinent was well done, and it was good to see another Constitution-class (there's that word again!). Pity they didn't explain what happened to the Exeter. Quarantined? Self-destructed? Crashed into a star? Right, a split personality. Three stars for the first half and one star for the second. Average, two stars.

Review : The plot begins well with a few good mysteries but when it comes to commies and yankees the whole episode becomes just silly and stupid.
