Satisfying......I Guess!
21 August 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The conclusion of this episode is fun for those of us who are pulling for the good guys. Any Kazon television viewers might feel differently. These are kind of fun villains because they are quite enterprising and quite stupid at the same time. Ceska has to continually remind her "man" what the right things to do are, and he reluctantly follows her advice. There is a lot of action on the surface of the planet where the original crew is trying to survive. Meanwhile, the Doc uses his holographic gifts and along with Suder and later, Paris, plots a method of disrupting the ship's technology. It is fun to watch the subtle changes in the ship as it collapses around the Kazon. I wonder if we've seen the last of them.
