Definitely enjoyed this one. It was fun! You knew the captain would cave eventually (because everybody who went before did), but it was still fun to see him go through the transformation.

I'm happy to see this episode was so well received. I recently became interested in Robert Sheckley's writing after hearing some of his stories on Mindwebs. Previously, I had only read his terrible DS9 novel and a couple of his Hugo nominated short stories. None of which are examples of his best work, imo.

Over the last few weeks I've read over 200 of his short stories and Ive enjoyed several of them. He had a knack for writing entertaining and memorable stories. It's a shame that an author who was so popular in the 50s seems to be almost forgotten today.

A few of my favorites:

Beside Still Waters
The Gun Without a Bang
The Petrified World
The Store of the Worlds
The Accountant
A Wind Is Rising
Paradise II
The Native Problem
Pilgrimage to Earth
Dawn Invader
Double Indemnity
The Mountain Without a Name
