Pretty poor
20 March 2020 | by leebutler-38991See all my reviews

So I have been patient. I have defended the show, made excuses and tried to 'like' it. I have forgiven it at its weakest and enjoyed it at its best (Nepenthe) but this episode is really bad. Why is it a 'part 1' when nothing really happens. The story unfolding looks poor. The Borg again fail to add anything to the plot line. 7 of 9 again adds nothing. The Romulan swordsmith adds nothing (again). For the first time I actually do not care what happens.

With the cast available and the the history of star trek and a huge budget with 10 episodes they could have done anything - at it would have been better
