Our Review

Rating: 2.5. Every series with a bridge set eventually does a "night shift" vignette. The formula is predictable: crew is tempted to sit in The Big Chair, they loosen up, get silly, the captain shows up, everyone is embarrassed. STC does not break the formula -- but executes it well, and adds a little something special at the end.

I watched this and found it to be enjoyable. It is significantly better than the short films that were released prior to it.
