YATI :
The Prometheus sure is light on officers. The captain appears to be a Lieutenant and nobody of higher rank is ever seen or mentioned.

At one point Dax says they are boosting the top speed of Seyetik's ship to warp nine point five, saying that if his experiment fails and the sun goes supernova, they will need to get out of there fast. But supernova explosions produce radiation which travels at lightspeed. Warp 1 is that fast, so even at Warp 1.1 the ship could comfortably escape any supernova. At 9.5 they'd be going at upwards of 1,800 times faster than this!
Factoid :
Whoever assigns missions to Starfleet's ships obviously has a sense of history. He or she has assigned a ship called Prometheus to a mission to re-ignite a star. Prometheus, in case you don't know, is a mythological figure who brought fire to mankind.

This episode is a nominee for the DITL "Worst of Trek" award.


Plotline
