This isn't the most action packed Quest story, but it is the first appearance of Dr. Zin. He's not exactly menacing in this episode; the closest he gets to Dr. Quest and the crew is a video screen. Zin really should work on his hiring because his thugs are pretty inept here. I do like the scene where Dr. Quest tests the "fake" gold by putting a drop of acid on it. The entire bar of fake gold erupts in a clod of smoke and when the smoke clears, the entire bar of gold is totally gone. That is either the strongest acid known to man or that gold bar must have the consistency of butter.

My Rating: 5 - Good
