- Monkee has posted her review of "Bounty", which she said "managed to live down to the UPN promo!" Here's an excerpt from the analysis:
What in the name of Kahless was THIS all about? T'Pring and Spock are rolling in their graves! No. Wait. They haven't been born yet. Well, you know what I mean. When Spock entered pon farr in 'Amok Time,' his blood fever was simmering just beneath the surface, ready to explode at any moment. His struggle to suppress it was what made it sexy as hell! T'Pol doesn't even try – she spends the entire episode panting, heaving, sweating, and draping herself all over anything that moves!
The episode was awarded a score of 6 out of 10 in the full review.
