Finally, no more Patrick Stewart in an undersized jumpsuit. Aside from the ST2-6 Movie uniforms, the new uniforms are my favorite in all of Star Trek. I have to imagine that part of the reason is the contrast from Season 2 to Season 3--going from such a terrible outfit to something much more becoming of the cast. There were other visual upgrades as well--the Shuttlebay finally looks good (although not great). The opening credits have more refinement. Little tweaks on various sets really add a nice level of polish to the series. Hottie McFadden is back, and her wigmaker is hitting on all cylinders. It feels like, visually, we're going in the right direction. Unfortunately, I think we've got a few more episodes before the stories really take off. The overall story is OK, but as a Wesley story--and not just that, but a typical Wesley story of "Wesley does something to break the ship"--it just makes me groan. The ship's failures are almost identical to that of "Contagion"; the ultimate cause is not terribly different, either. I can't complain too loudly--it's not a bad episode. And like at the beginning of Season 2, it takes the opportunity to demonstrate how the show is improving visually.
