A Review from Eric L. Watts, who saw a pre-release screening: "EARLY REVIEW: Much like "The Dark Knight," each time you think the story has reached its denouement and the end credits are about to roll, it keeps on going, revealing unsuspected repercussions and a breathtaking resolution. Kudos to Jeffrey Green for an outstanding performance as Capt. Grigory and to David Eversole for a story worthy of the Star Trek franchise. A fine effort by all involved, light years ahead of all its previous episodes, and deserving of all the praise it's sure to earn when the final cut is released."
