Jack's Review
Man o man, the hits just keep on coming. The fact that Frakes directed this episode blows my mind. It's silly beyond words. So there is a rave planet out there with exclusive nigh clubs and free subspace wifi? And Raffi is an ex-junkie and deadbeat mom?!? I know Goldsman and Chabon wanted to display the seedy side of the galaxy but if you are going to do that you need to understand what a seedy side is. This hipster space bar and drama-series tropes are not seedy. The other thing that made me angry was the rather pointless waste of a terrific character...Icheb, you deserved SO much better. I will give the writers a lesson here. If you intend to use characters from a past series and the actors that originally played those roles are alive and able to reprise their roles and you can't get them for the show, or they don't want to be on the show....maybe you should come up with a better story using NEW characters. That wasn't Brian Brophy so that wasn't Bruce Maddox. That wasn't Manu Intiraymi, so that wasn't Icheb.
