This episode was alright. Some of the earlier scenes of Trip talking to the alien and the alien talking back, without the use of a translator, were interesting. I’m not sure exactly how they understood each other without using gestures. And it was kind of obvious that his type of “water” wasn’t going to work for Trip. Their small climb together and braving it against the elements until help arrived reminds me of DS9’s The Ascent
. Still, this was better than the last episode for sure, and it had a nice ending.
