Rating:  WATCH (For The Animated Series we use a simpler WATCH or Skip rating) 

Ya gotta watch this one at least to see Robert April! It’s a pretty fun episode all around, but the de-aging thing is just not something I care for. Also it’s the last episode of the animated series, so you made it! Good job everyone.

    I’m just glad this was an animated episode and not one from TOS, we were spared the awful makeup effects.

    the novelization adds a bit how the backwards universe was patently impossible and the whole thing was just a test or something and that de-aging wasn’t real and fixing it with the transporter wasn’t actually possible, they just thought it was. nifty
