Some episodes do have the PC preachiness-morality play elements of the original show, but I found it enjoyable for the most part and about the closest thing to an actual Star Trek episode aired by NBC from 1966-69.
I agree, not too shabby.
And for the preachiness, in episode 2 there's a short make-you-wanna-puke, feminist scene.
: What a beautiful ship. And men and women working along-side each other equally.
: Well, the Federation sees no differences between rights and abilities of men and women.
: But biologically and chemically we're different. One gender isn't stronger than the other?
: We're each individuals with our own strengths and weaknesses, but we're not defined by our gender.
: Sounds like a dream - one I've had many a night.
: It's a good dream, Lolani - one worth holding on to.
About 50% of that episode has acting about as good as a porn movie, mostly due to Lolani (Fiona Vroom). Dr. McKennah (Michele Specht) isn't too great either, but she's a looker with that beautiful red hair (yes, I know it's most likely fake, at least to a degree).
Also, in episode 3 Dr. McKennah is sleeping with the Asian-ish guy, Hikaru (sp?) (Mirror World).
