  • Over at Star Trek: Hypertext, Jamahl Epsicokhan has posted his review of "Judgment". Here's an excerpt from the article:

    Part of the fun with "Judgment" is in spotting the familiar lines of dialog and the similar -- even identical -- set design, camera angles, and costumes. Indeed, it looks to me like the production designer, writer, director, and cinematographer all studied the courtroom scenes from Trek VI with great care before the sets here were built and the cameras were rolling. The creators haven't simply borrowed the trial scene from Trek VI, they've re-created it completely. And well.

    The episode was given a score of 3 out of 4 stars in the complete analysis.

  • Kathie Browne McGavin, who played Deela in the original Trek episode "Wink of an Eye", died on April 8 of natural causes, the Los Angeles Times reported.
