No, I can't skip ANIS (Beavis and Butthead laugh). If I skip "Sickbay", I have to skip "These Are the Voyages", and I'm dreading that one the most. I still haven't watched TATV a second time since first seeing it this past January.
I did mean to mention Dead Stop's continuity factor, and forgot-- I probably need to start taking written notes again instead of mental ones. It's almost like a mini 2-parter the way the damage from "Minefield" is the catalyst for the story here.
