Costumes that are had to look at
15 November 2017 | by Bronco46See all my reviews

The story itself is pretty good. Seven is experiencing hallucinations. And is feeling an irresistible pull. All of this is going on while the captain is engaged in negotiations that would allow them to navigate through the space claimed by a race (the Bomar) that doesn't like their territory being violated. Seven of Nine then made things worse by taking a shuttle and charging into Bomar space. Needless to say, negotiations come to an end. And everyone is chasing Seven. For different reasons. And seeking different outcomes. We learn more about Sevens family and there's some pretty good action. But the episode is marred by the ridiculous costumes for the Bomar. For some reason, someone thought it would be a good idea to have Bomar costumes include wearing coat hangers on their heads. They're not really coat hangers. But, they do have some kind of silly looking wire head gear wrapped around their heads. Some have colored inserts in ear-like projections that a part of this headgear. For me, every second these people are on screen. It takes away from the overall quality of this episode. I can only imagine how silly the people actually having to wear these costumes must feel.
