||Those nasty, evil Nazis, they've got to be vicious. Firstly, John Gill was wrong. Nazi Germany only seemed efficient because a lot of its economy was based on slave labour and resource seizures from occupied countries. However, it was in contrast to the Weimar Republic, that was forced to pay massive reparations under the Treaty of Versailles. In fact, there was massive in-fighting at the top, and even between major agencies, and near-incompetence with many of the leaders. It's questionable whether a benign leadership could ever have controlled such a state, mostly because the main way to keep the population in check was fear, followed by propaganda. So the premise was wrong on several counts. As for the script and the acting, it was patently ridiculous. Would two random aliens trying to get into the Chancellery not be carted off to the nearest police station? Why would a research lab even be in the same building? What happened to the phasers and were they ever recovered (just a YATI)? Would someone not realise that there was something seriously wrong with the Führer? Is the change at the end not far too quick? Some things were good. Daras apparently betraying her father mirrors some real-life incidents. But that doesn't make up for the acting, which was wooden at best. It's been commented that the actors seemed to enjoy swanning around in Nazi uniforms. Whatever the reality of that, it did not look good. Overall, one of the most ridiculous episodes ever made, but just about watchable.
