  • A couple more reviews for Enterprise's 'Stigma' are now online. Litsa Guevara at Trekpulse was impressed with the episode, and wrote: "The writing, acting and direction were top-notch for this episode. I was very impressed by the fact that the Berman and Braga wrote this. To be truthful, I had not expected such a good turnout from them. The 'A' story, which dealt with a very serious social issue, was tackled with restraint, not too much preachiness and sympathy." The full review can be found here.

  • Gisele La Roche at StarfleetCom.Net also reviewed 'Stigma,' giving it an A- minus grade. "Viacom's AIDS awareness program was the reason why this episode was made. Still, I think Berman and Braga did a wonderful job fitting in this subject with the Trek universe. It may have been a little preachy at times but the writing was mature and intelligent. It's refreshing that the topic of safe sex was not discussed. It's been done to death at this point. Also, I loved how the Denobulans represented the idea of 'freedom of expression' and although Trip was uncomfortable with their lifestyle, he didn't judge them for it." The full review can be found here.
