    Too right! I hope this episode isn't too stressful for our heroes. I've said it a million times and I'll say it again-they need a break. :) I hope they dont leave Trance out of this one.

    Yeah, and I hope they address some of the issues that have arisen from the new her coming on the scene.

    I'm sure they will. They always fill us in with what's going on. They do always tend to let a few things hang though...

    I just finished watching this episode, and it was great!!! I loved the Rommie/Tyr interaction. The new blue haired look really works, and I like Rommie's new wardrobe. I like Molly too. It looks as though she's going to be around for a while, replacing the first Trance's sweet and innocent role. The only really problem I had with this ep. is it seems as though all the women that Dylan meets are going to fall in love with him. We did get a little closer on the Trance thing, but I hope it's addressed more in the next episode.

    I really liked this one. The Ogami were...interesting :rain: I sure wouldn't want to get one mad at me ;) Rommie and Tyr were great. I loved the look in Tyr's eyes when Rommie threatened him. That was crazy!! I liked Molly, too. I'd like to see her again-don't know if I can say the same for Rommie ;) I'm glad Dylan set her up at that High Guard academy. It really does seem like all the women Dylan meets fall in love with him. He must really be broke right after Valentine's day. How does he remember all their birthdays? The Trance/Harper interaction was pretty cool. I'm glad he's warming up to her, but I was dissapointed by the fact that Beka had to force him to work with her. He even had the nerve to tell her to go away and leave him alone- right to her face. Harper's been through a lot, and complains about his hardships even more. You'd think when someone else was having a hard time and needed support, he'd be a little more sympathetic. Even if he was in shock at the new Trance ( I know I still am!! ) Over all, this was a good episode. Interesting plot, character interaction, and not too hard-core serious. Just my two cents. :smilej:

    I hope they let us see him warming up to Trance a little more instead of just picking up right where they left off. I think it would be an interesting story plot.

    I liked Molly though I thought it was Waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy to soon for them to be getting it on so fast. I do have to say that she is a better match than the Charmaines wife.(Name?)

    he learned a ton about Tyr. The non verbal acting on his part showed that Rommie hit a nerve when she said his greatest fear was being alone. That fits in great with Tyr's character with his entire tribe dead. In one of the earier eps (name?) he was going to betray the crew just so he could find a place among the hostile tribe.

    I agree that she matches him much better than Elsbett ever did, but I'd still like to see him and Beka together. This episode really made me wonder what Tyr would do if he went on a mission with Dylan and our dear captain died. I would like to see Freya from 'Double Helix' come back in a future episode. It would be interesting to see how Tyr would react to her after all this time.

    It is because Kevin Sorbo is an Exucative Producer. So he can make whoopie happen whenever he wants.

    Um sorry I disagree


    Tyr got action in Double Helix

    Rommie got action in Star Crossed

    Beka got action in A heart for the Faslehood Framed

    Harper got some action in Into the Labyrinth.

    I think its a case of how the writers write their stories and yes Captain Hunt is the main charactor, but its a ensemble show meaning a team effort and Kevin knows it and has said it on more than one occassion.

    I really like this episode. The character of Molly is really cool. I laugh a lot with the things she do and say. As for the Tyr and Rommie interaction was so good. Specially to see them find common ground or an concilatory point. The Harper and Trance situation got my attention. I too hope they give this situation time to progress, it sure will be interesting to see more about it as Lonewolf89 mention. Although Harper should be a little kind with her, after all he's alive thanks to her. :D

    I really liked Molly, too. I dont think we'll be seeing any more of her. I could be wrong, I hope I am :rain:

    My favorite part of this episode was the Tyr/Rommie interaction. Loved the look on Tyr's face when they thought Dylan had died.

    The Harper/Trance line was also good. Nice to see Beka taking control as a good first officer and making them work together. Better if Harper gets it worked out before they are in a situation where it could endanger the ship.

    Over all a decent episode.
