Did You Know?


The title of this episode comes from a passage in the Bible (1 Corinthians 13:12 from the American Standard Version): "For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known." The same verse (in the King James Bible, the relevant text reads "For now we see through a glass, darkly") is quoted by Captain Picard in Star Trek Nemesis. See more »


When T'Pol and her Vulcan aides break in to the brig to free Captain Forrest, they throw a "flashbang" grenade into the room to disable the guards. Forrest is protected from the bang by the holding cell, but should still have been affected by the flash. See more »

It seems every version of Trek has to do the "evil Enterprise" thing, and I haven't liked any of them. I felt this show wasn't given enough of a chance before it was cancelled. I enjoy it very much. I wish the series had gone on longer. There was a lot more to explore with these characters.
