Tribbles Week Redux comes to a conclusion with DS9's sister show Voyager's tribute to Trek's 30th anniversary, as George Takei, Grace Lee Whitney, Jeremy Roberts, Boris Lee Krutonog, and Michael Ansara get the Excelsior band back together for "Flashback."
George Takei has some good moments where he justifies his not following orders to Tuvok, though that too is a missed opportunity. There was a line in the script of Star Trek VI that was in both the novelization by J.M. Dillard and the comic book adaptation by Peter David that was one of the best lines in the script, and sadly got cut. Sulu says that he always hoped that if he was ever given the choice between betraying his friends and betraying his country that he’d have the guts to betray his country. I remember when I watched this episode in 1996, I was waiting for them to use the line, and was disappointed that Brannon Braga failed to do so. It would’ve been the perfect thing to say to Tuvok when he objected to Excelsior’s course of action.
