Extinction

Rating: 1

Whatever positives this episode may have, it’s overshadowed by the crew acting like gross animal-like aliens. There isn’t important information regarding the Xindi/Expanse arc, making this episode entirely skippable.

    I consider the second worst episode in Star Trek history. Downright painful to watch. I don’t blame LaVar Burton for saying that he was “ashamed” to have directed this.
