Review : Not a bad attempt. We've had the 'talking bomb' story before with "Dreadnought", but this was not quite the same. Instead of the weapon staying as the antagonist, it moves to the side of right and sacrifices itself to kill off the other weapons. Slightly debatable morals (the 'species' went 'extinct' if you like) but on balance there probably was not much point in trying to redeem thirty-odd bombs all of which would have blown up anyway. Robert Picardo came up with another version of the 'Dark Doctor' act, and was convincing as ever, but I have to wonder why they did not simply give the bomb a voice (which he could provide). Maybe to keep the Doctor out of the way, but who knows. I presume the bomb used the famous 'super antimatter', otherwise the explosive component (which produced a crater as big as the impact event that killed the dinosaurs) would need to be much, much, MUCH bigger. Still, that's a side issue. It's a bit odd how some of the junior officers were acting around Ensign Kim - who is the same rank as they are. If he had actually been promoted, it would make far more sense. Anyway, he did fairly well, and I suppose the same goes for Garratt Wang, who has been 'doing fairly well' for five and a half years now. Not sure what that is as a comment.
