Terra Nova. An Episode Lost in Translation.
Terra Nova was listed on five different fan review websites that categorized and listed the "worst" episodes of Enterprise and of Star Trek. When I reviewed the sheer vitriol that Terra Nova suffered from online reviews, I was shocked, intrigued and bewildered that this episode was so poorly received. So...what happened? How could two veteran Trek writers in Berman and Braga just utterly and completely misfire? Pull up a chair and join us in The Conference Room for a fantastic, open and honest discussion of this very controversial episode!
