Review : OK, not much of a story here. It seemed promising, a number of mysteries offered in the first few minutes, but then did not really fit together. What Kirk had seemed to be some form of conscious amnesia, meaning that his memory still worked on a subconscious level, and that was the one thing done well. What I know about Native American culture can be written on the back of an envelope, but this somehow doesn't seem right. In fact, it seems to be the old cliché of a white man turning up and being mistaken for a god by the simple savages. I don't think many of the cast were Native American either. They also missed out what might have been a good scene, Kirk explaining to either Salish or the Elder how to work the deflector, and coming to the usual Trek-like resolution of everyone's misunderstandings. As a result, the story seems incomplete. It's a pity, because it might have worked. As it is, the writing let it down, despite the lavish budget. Still, Kirk's visit might have spawned some interesting legends. Briefly, the remastered sections worked fairly well, with a decent asteroid, improved phaser and deflector shots and a nice planet - generally maintaining the standard.
