Re: Allemaraine....Third Shap
You know I've noticed that with every Trek series there are always rough first season episodes (TNG being the best exsample!) and after a season or two it gains momentum and better writing.
The exception is TOS, whose 3rd season is generally considered its worst, and the show was then cancelled.
