Intelligence reportOh dear, it's all a dream. Well, not really, its a real dream, that is to say, it's an induced dream. A nightmare.
I guess that coming face to face with fear is a good idea for a script, but this episode isn't done well enough to make it worth watching. You all know that Starfleet Captains are familiar with fear, as Kirk mentioned in that Dumb movie that William Shatner directed.
You also have to live with a dozen extras miming so that they don't have to be paid the full rate for a walking and talking actor. And why do that always have these bloody carnival things? Feel free to give this episode a miss - you won't miss anything.
Wait a second - they're not as dumb as I first thought. This is a crap episode because it's nearly time for the Season finale: they want that to seem even better than it will be...
