Trekathon 433: False Profits (VOY)

July 12th, 2012

Voyager manages to find a way to do a Ferengi episode.

Funnily enough it’s another callback episode, this time back to around 300 episodes ago and The Price. Close readers may have noticed that I’m not a huge fan of Ferengi-based episodes, but this one was actually pretty good. It was also not as huge a shoe horn, as these two Ferengi were established as going to the Delta quadrant at the time.

Another improvement – there’s a moment at the end where the wormhole collapses and the shortcut home is destroyed where, for once, you feel the pain of being 70 years from home. Previously they’ve missed that beat, but here it works for once.

433 down, 304 to go.
