  • Gisele La Roche has posted her review of 'Dawn' over at Voyager's Delights. Here's an excerpt from her analysis:

    As usual, Connor Trinneer's performance as the "passionate" Trip Tucker is more than appealing. If there is one thing the actor is good at it's showing emotion even when he's recording his log. Gregg Henry also does a good job as Trip's adversary Zho'Kann. Of course a little alien spit that happens to heal wounds instantly does add a nice measure of strangeness to the character.
    In the full review, the episode was awarded a C+.

  • A review has also been posted at monkee's place, where monkee thought 'Dawn' was a "one of the best of the second season thus far." Here's an excerpt from her analysis:

    In order for an episode like this to work, the two 'adversaries' have to be good, and they were. Connor Trinneer, in particular, since he was the only one we could understand, did an outstanding job. Trip proves himself to be an able diplomat once again, although he's also capable of underhandedness when necessary. He also has an impressive punch – I sure wouldn't mess with him! His humor is appealing and underplayed. Nice.
    In the full review, the episode was awarded a 9/10.
