Last weeks episode was arguably the worst of the season, if not the entire series. This week is a generic sc-fi space opera. The acting is excellent and this episode boasts the best scene in the series with an unhinged crew member completely losing it. There's much to appreciate in this episode but nothing comes close to original series eerie plots and potent messages. Even with promising sequences, and interesting character development, the plot doesn't make good on its fascinating setting. Large portions of the episode feel generic, and there's nothing truly exceptional about this episode outside of a few scenes. It feels like alot of time is wasted on unneeded philosophizing, and the ending is sort of let down. With truly terrible previous episodes, this feels like a step up. If you can call averageness a step up.
