So, I've made it to season four. In spite of the cliched stories there is something about the series that fascinates me unlike Star Trek TNG. It must be the gritty sets and actual action. However, I've already posted once about the disregard for captured alien weapons. The characters do get to use the little snake "stun" guns more often but only on specific missions.
Then, finally, they have the opportunity to test some ancient alien devices that enhance the wearer's physical attributes. And they work! But, not so fast, there is a viral and addictive side affect, and they won't come off, and the devices can only be used for a limited time before the wearer passes out. The item then falls off and becomes inert, useless.
It was a fun episode, but just like Star Trek, we quickly fall back to the status quo.
