TFTNT Chris!

Thought this was an ok episode..

- Interesting about Spock fighting with his human side and whether his fiancée will have him

- I liked that we saw most of the crew relaxing away from the ship..

- Nice scenes with Chapel and Spock and with Chapel smacking Spock

- So Spock and his fiancée swapped body's, oops

- I liked the scenes between Una and La'an . Enterprise Bingo! and they did get bingo..

- M'Benga and his fishing hat

- Nice scenes with Chapel and Ortegas too, since we haven't had any scenes with them up to this episode..

- Lovely shot of the Enterprise when Pike was doing his last negotiations with the alien race..

I know that this was built as a "comedy" episode, but I thought there wasn't really much comedy in it all considering the body swap..

- the scene setting and music in Spock's dream sequence was very reminiscent of TOS. Had to laugh at Spock checking his ears when he woke up
- nice to see the off duty interactions between the various crew members, especially Christine and Ortegas
- the stuff between Una & La'an seemed a bit forced
- Loved Pike's reaction to finding out that Spock & T'Pring had switched bodies. It's good that it led to more honesty between them, but overall thought they could have done more with this storyline

I agree. That and the Enterprise Bingo bit just never really did much for me.

while I didn't find the storylines particularly engaging, it was nice to see the crew hanging out with each other.

Yeah there was not much going on but it was a fun one. More about crew and family interaction. A bit like that TNG episode where they are back home after the borg attack and picard visits his family, worf gets visited by his human parents etc.

I really enjoyed this episode. It was good fun, had great character development and gave some nice background to Spock and his fiancee.

I loved the body swap sroryline those are always fun.

Yes, the body swap was fun. Nice way to help us learn more about the characters, and give the actors a chance to act.

Those kind of episodes are a good way of delving into characters.

Exactly. And especially fun to have Spock grapple with being in a woman's body.
