I know that most S1 episodes are "dodgy" for one reason or another but I'm surprised that this episode winds up on a lot of top worst episodes list of S1. I think that it's a rather interesting, albeit tragic episode, which is usually uncharacteristic of most Star Trek episodes (at least before DS9), plus it has a good look IMHO at choices and consequences, both in terms of Jameson's unsanctioned decision to give weapons to warring factions of an alien planet, as well and Karnas' responsibility in helping perpetuate a four-decade Civil War instead of possibly suing for peace. Also, Jameson's private decision to take the anti-aging medicine without telling his wife or the Enterprise crew, ultimately with fatal consequences. As a Babylon 5 fan, I guess that I appreciated the moral complexity of the episode. So, what did people whom didn't like the episode not like about it?
