1:16 - Shuttlepod One

TV Blurb: In a damaged shuttle, Tucker and Reed find evidence suggesting Enterprise was destroyed. Written by Rick Berman & Brannon Braga. Directed by David Livingston.

One of the things Star Trek does well is putting two characters in a room and watching them go after each other. Here, Dominic Keating and Connor Trinneer must get 90% of the episode's running time to themselves. It's excellent work from the two stars, and gives a lot of insight into why Malcolm is so reserved.

Music is used effectively as Malcolm loses himself in his romanticism of tradition while preparing for the end. Trip focuses on staying positive, especially after finding a surprise in the rations bin.

I watched this four times before writing, it's wonderful work from Keating and Trinneer.

The season/series collection has a featurette on the making of the episode.

Next: "Fusion"
