FLASHBACK - 3x02 - 3/5
I felt this episode takes a VERY long time to get going and when it does, the memory engram virus story and the Excelsior flashback story are completely incongruous plot elements.
This episode is executed very lazily I feel and seems to have an identity crisis, not to mention the continuity issues that arise from it.
But the Excelsior stuff is satisfyingly fun, even though it's not 100% accurate - but I guess you can put that down to flaws in Tuvok's memory? Seeing Takei and others in action again is great fun and the episode really does pay tribute to the unseen actions of the Excelsior crew during Star Trek VI.
This is a fun, if flawed little romp but it's no where near as satisfying as DS9's 30th Anniversary tribute, Trials and Tribbleations. However it's enjoyable enough for me to bump it from the 2 I was thinking of giving it, to a 3.
