[VOY] Flashback

[VOY] Season 3, Episode 2: Flashback

Flashback

Rating: 3

It’s really fun to see parts of Star Trek VI from the perspective of the Excelsior, so much so that it’s annoying every time the story goes back to Tuvok’s memory-virus story, which is actually the main plot.

    I really enjoyed this episode for exactly what you say: The Excelsior parts. So much fun and Sulu/Takei steals every scene he’s in. So much fun! Makes me wish there was a ST spinoff in the Kirk era. So much nostalgia.
