Intelligence report

A rather silly episode based on technobabble that is watchable only for the general weirdness of it all.

There is a nice mystery that, if he may say without sounding up himself, I managed to solve before anyone else did, and this is an entertaining episode but nothing to write home about. Subspace distortion... imagination. Subspace distortion... imagination. Subspace distortion... imagination. Hmmm, Maybe there's a clue in there?

The title is part of a saying that goes, "If wishes were horses then all men would ride", in case you were interested and unaware. The precise meaning I will leave for your next Philosophy 101 class.
