Eye-booger monsters, an FPS perspective and heavy Pet’ing didn’t quite detract from the gargantuan plot holes in this one
Boom! First-person perspective cold open aboard a spaceship where the crew’s gone missing, Doc and Clara have turned up for no real reason, and so has a team of soldiers, of whom exactly one was genetically bred for soldiering — because that’s what we do in the future, except for the entire rest of the team… of soldiers.
You know how you really want to work even more, but all that pesky free time and sleep always get in the way? Well, not anymore, buddy, because in the far-flung future a mad scientist with corporate backing has invented a pod that packs all your snoozing needs into one stretch like that lady from the start of Amelie Poulain.
Well, turns out the crew’s gone missing because they plopped inside the sleeping pods and were subsumed by the snoozie gunk in the corner of their eye. And now there are eye-booger monsters roaming the space corridors, plotting to take over the space universe under the spell of the aforementioned mad space scientist, or so the episode claims, because what just happened?!
