Yeah, this was a terrific episode. Started really well, and the pace never let up from then on.
Some stunning visuals, too - check out the opening space shot:
And the landscapes later on are just breathtaking:
Of course, the real standout was the arena combat - got a decent lirpa and bat'leth, as well as the falchion, which is just COOL.
On a completely unrelated note, it was so gratifying to see my crew take part in the mission in their proper uniforms again - the new fixes really complete the game for me.
Although that said, it wasn't all plain sailing - clearly, using thalaron radiation to boost the transporter output wasn't a great idea, as Ensign Sisek realised far too late:
Whoops! Still, we all had a giggle at his expense while he re-hydrated (...I'm presuming that's how you cure thalaron radiation poisoning!)...
