Speaking of bad placing, how is this the season finale?
This is a very serious episode dealing with possible Romulan encroachment in the Neutral Zone and the outright destruction of multiple outposts (I see you, vague foreshadowing). You know what would make a super awesome B story? Why, a wacky fish-out-of-water tale of three humans who were cryogenically frozen and now find themselves IN THE FUTURE!!!, complete with comical musical cues! Golly gee, that southern boy sure do talk funny! And women, they are SO emotional when they realize everyone they have ever known and loved is dead! But at least we have the Captain of American Industry there to let all us enlightened space folk know our place. Hyuck hyack!
