I finally watched this episode. Ok, I respect what these people are doing.. filming new TOS, and all the details, yadda yadda yadda. But this episode was all but unwatchable. I understand that ST can be social relevant when it wants to be.. but even that doesn't apply here. We don't have slaves today in this country. That being said, even if we can commend an episode for bringing out social issues through allegories, it still has to feel like Trek. But this episode is so stagnant and slow and preachy that it feels nothing like Trek. I mean it's too easy a target to pick on Orion Slave Girls and then have the crew put the their own morality up to it, but it's too obvious, too easy, and too on-the-nose, especially when slavery is part of the Orion culture... and the absurdity and wrongness of that culture was more effectively when done in passing, as in ENT's Borderlands. But this episode was far too slow, too bland, and too preachy. I can't respect it.
