Kind of an average episode.


This is one of those "Species-Wants-To-Remain-Isolated-Except-For-One-Idealist-Who-Wishes-To-See-The-Galaxy" episodes.


Nothing much to say about it really.

I really loved this episode. A conflict between knowledge and fear and wisdom and acquiescence, all orchestrated in a finely choreographed dance. The gravity of the situations, the hope of advancement in a society, the comedy of a strange fetishism (where the player doesn't want to play, for a change), not to mention the way it forces the question back upon us.... where does our planet fall on this scale? Are we as a whole, Mirasta, Krola, Avel, or even Lanel? I also have to give big acting props to all those who played Malcorians. I not only loved their characters, I believed them. 5.
