Amazingly, that may have been the highlight of this week.
Somehow this actually ended up being a really boring and lame episode. It was helped on its way there by poor animation, a lack of any actual action, and some really lame drama that really went nowhere. Good work, Ascouer, you teleported through some doors. This is only the fifteenth time we’ve seen you do something like that, but this time… it’s dramatic. Ascouer’s attempted attack on Shade was particularly embarrassing, especially given how good the animation in this show usually is. The ship battles were… eh… if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. Nothing new or interesting there in the slightest. Q’s precog was also tweaked a little bit towards the end, but it’s not like she actually did anything aside from getting carted around by the Trixie.
Torch and Shade barely managed to be menacing at all either. I’m sure they have more powers than just acting as remote controls for other ships and teleporting around, but they didn’t show any here. Meanwhile, Trixie and Troyes didn’t even try to attack either one of them. They were content to just beat up some doors instead.
