Today Is April 1!!!!
1 April 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The Enterprise, chased by the Romulans, has to go through an energy field. After this takes place, lame practical jokes begin happening. It becomes epidemic and is threatening the crew's abilities. It is soon realized that it is the Enterprise, and not a crew member, that is the cause of all this. Soon after this, the ship puts out Nitrous Oxide and the crew can't stop laughing. This is another one of the more childish episodes that didn't bring this show back for another season.
