I agree; the episode is average for me. I do like our first sight of the Hyperion-class ship though (though I'm not fond of the performance of the actor playing the Captain of that ship though: it's too over-the-top for my preferences).

Ah, but it does provide the occasion for one of Ivanova's more memorable lines! "Worst case of testosterone poisining I've ever seen."

And we do get Lise Hampton introduced for the first, but by no means the last, time.

I was never impressed with the Hyperion-class. They say, there's a ship coming through, and "It's big" ...and out pops a shrimp, er Hyperion-class.

I sure wish JMS hadn't gotten his terminology backwards. A cruiser smaller than a destroyer, sheesh!

Re: EpDis: A Voice In The Wilderness Part 2

Strangely that happens fairly often in science fiction... "cruisers" and "destroyers" are used almost interchangeably in Star Wars.

David Weber, on the other hand, is so tech-savvy that you can pinpoint the era he drew his ship classes from.

Re: EpDis: A Voice In The Wilderness Part 2

(I've only posted a couple times so please allow me to say, "Hi!" again)

I enjoyed this episode (and part 1) more on subsequent viewings than on the first. I appreciate it for it's importance in the arc in many places but I agree that Captain Pierce was over acted (of course so was Sinclair imho but we won't get into that now ). I don't get such an overall 'mood' like in Signs and Portents, but still it's quality stuff. I'd give it a 7.5.

This one lacked the unique Londoness of the first ep, so rates more lacklusterly on my radar screens.

Are you sure you wouldn't prefer "Londoninity?"
