  1. I think it was interesting that the “it was earth” aspect was well received by you…. For me, it was a very weak aspect of the episode: a planet that had a shared past with earth, including identical wording on a key historical document. The parallelism with earth seems like it would be the biggest discovery in centuries, but it is simply glossed over….

    1. Oh sure, it was a weak part of the episode, but it didn’t ruin anything for me. This story was everywhere and if it wasn’t an earth adjacent, they couldn’t have done the “Why You know Sacred Words?” bit. This whole episode would be impossible to do in another series, but in TOS: “Oh, we need it to be earth? Okay.”

      I do think the crew made logical leaps that were not accurate, but the DM (aka the writers) didn’t correct them, which is the real flaw.

      All in all, I think this episode was a blast, yes, it was silly that it was Earth or something, but that didn’t hamper my enjoyment at all.
