My reaction
Concept:1/4 (Bad)
Story:2/4 (Indifferent)
Characters:1/4 (Bad)
Dialog:3/4 (Good)
Pacing:2/4 (Indifferent)
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent)

Music:4/4 (Great)
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good, 3/4 (Good)). A reluctant 7. It’s a pretty dumb episode. But it’s still Star Trek and isn’t bad enough to overpower my love of classic Star Trek.
Objective Rating (Average):2.3/4 (Okay)
