Intelligence report

You know how everyone wrote in to Paramount saying that they want to see the actors without makeup? Well this is the episode for you! Not only does everyone appear unplugged, but the episode is an homage to both the persecuted African-American writers of the 20th century and the great authors and pulp magazines that brought science fiction to the masses. Although it is very much an in-joke for Trekkies and general sci-fanatics, it is still an inspiring and entertaining episode. The descent into philosophy I could live without, but that's me.
