Re: ORV S1: New Dimensions

(Spoilers, obviously.) I enjoyed this episode. There was definitely a first-season TNG throwback here with the chief engineer replaced by a bridge officer a'la Geordi La Forge. I don't really feel a lot of loss with this character leaving, since he never really felt like part of the "main cast." This leaves the question - who will take Lamarr's place on the bridge?

I think it was interesting to see Lamarr's adjustment to a leadership role with the failed gumdrop idea (you don't get a gumdrop!), and his demonstration of some command qualities when we defended Yaphit to his peers in the shuttle. He grew a lot in this episode.

I thought the two-dimensional space concept was really neat to look at, and the reference to Flatland were a nice touch.

There were a few inconsistencies that I feel held the episode back, notably the sudden "realization" about Lamarr's aptitude scores. I think it's far-fetched that the two senior commanders on a ship would have never read the personnel file on all of the current senior staff they were serving with until now. This is particularly true for Lamarr, who you would think Ed or Kelly would have reviewed after the events of "Majority Rule." Some of the Ed-Kelly scenes in this episode fell flat for me, but the way they wrapped it up (particularly the "Dumbo" reference) worked well.
