Interesting facts

+ Comments made by Duncan in the 1888 flashback indicate this scene takes place shortly after the flashbacks in the fourth-season episode 'Double Eagle' (D5).
+ Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation might recognise Kevin Conway - he played Kahless the Unforgettable in the sixth-season story 'Rightful Heir'.
+ Kathy Evison made her name as Ensign Lonnie Henderson in SeaQuest DSV.


Highlander's first spooky story is an engaging drama, with Stan Kirsch in particular coming of age as Richie. B+
