->The Doctor manages to convince Vicki and Steven in record time that he is [[WhichMe a younger version]] of the Doctor, partly because he is such an amiable fellow that it is hard to distrust and partly because these companions ask intelligent questions. Listening to this story is almost enough to make you week: [[Creator/PeterDavison Davison]] instantly raises his game when he is paired up with two such fine actors for his companions and it makes you wonder just how his era would have fared had he been traveling with characters of the calibre of Steven and Vicki rather than the drudgery of Adric and Tegan.

->Creator/TomHanks and Peter Scolari's woman costumes were about as believable as two men in wigs making no effort to disguise their voices. They lived in a world where everyone was so easy to trick, there was no need for the [[ZanyScheme elaborate scheme]]. They might as well have put a jar of mayonnaise on roller skates and shoved it into the manager's office shouting, "That's not male mayonnaise! Rent her an apartment! Actually, RARGH! I'm God! Rent an apartment to Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari!

->It seems weird that T’Pol did not have a “stun” setting...if she did, there would be no plot. The way that T’Pol talks about “[[TheseHandsHaveKilled the despair of having taken a life]]” suggests that this was the only time that she ever killed. It seems strange that the Vulcan High Command would not have any operatives [[EnsignNewbie better suited to the task]] -- particularly if the operative was not going to be equipped with a weapon that can stun.

->What follows is a textbook example of an "Idiot Plot", or plot that only happens because every single character is an idiot. The necessities of the format mean that the game must constantly be contriving reasons for two characters to fight. But about sixty to seventy percent of the fights are founded on misunderstandings or pranks so that after the fight ends the participants can be all chums again two dialogue lines later as the winner awkwardly helps stitch up the loser's gaping stab wounds and picks up all the fragments of jawbone that blasted out of his asshole.
