The Trekzone Review

That bloody cat, causing all sorts of problems for Geordi. The best line would have to be when the engineer suggests using a phaser to train Spot. Data’s shock was awesome… and Geordi’s sister apparently walked around for months with tuna to train her cat.

Technology is death, in this century or ours… and the warp drive hazard is causing holes in the ozone layer. This is another preachy episode, but we haven’t had one in a long while so you can sort of forgive them for this… after all, this is Gene’s Star Trek.

A lot of comment on the fact that the speed limit imposed in this episode is disregarded in only a few months, I think the development of the Intrepid-class was already well underway (in fact Voyager, at least the second of the Intrepid-class, should’ve been 90% built by now…) so the variable geometry warp field it creates is the solution here.
