||This might have been an interesting premise, but it disappeared under the weight of all the technobabble. Basically, warp drive is tearing up the galaxy. Now, that's actually a very big thing bring up. There's a bit at the end where people are basically saying 'this changes everything', but what's the betting that everyone will be racing around at warp 9 next episode. They should have made sure that people knew that it was a local phenomenon (if it was), so would not have affected other areas. Anyway, the scientists here have some very novel methods. Can't they do a laboratory model? If they really want to trigger a rift, why not use an unmanned ship? Wasn't it very dangerous to trigger a rift anyway? I'm a scientist myself, and I'm glad I never had to work with someone that reckless or selfish, so I lost all sympathy for the character. It's a pity my 47th review is going on this.
