Just say no....

So far in the series, "Shuttlepod One" is by far the weakest episode. It has the barest of plots, is plodding and makes you really hate one of the characters.

Malcolm and Trip are off on some mission using a shuttle. When they return to rendezvous with Enterprise, it appears as if the ship was destroyed. Ironically, the same happens with Enterprise--they think the shuttle was lost. So, the two officers hang out in the shuttle and wait and hope SOMEONE comes to rescue them. During this time, Malcolm is insufferable and Trip wants to kill them (as do the viewers) and eventually they are rescued and that is that.

By the way, in addition to being a crappy and dull episode, Trip says that when people die, their hair and nails continue to grow. This is a myth...and the writer should have known this.
