Synopsis - Taking in some R&R at a pleasure planet, 7 of 9 and Tuvok are abducted, and Seven is forced to fight in the Tsunkatse matches; a futuristic variation on ancient Rome's Gladiator games.

Tsunkatse seems to have been written all to the purpose of being able to have a scene in which Seven of Nine confronts real-life heavyweight wrestler, The Rock; a scene which last for all of about 5 minutes. The story itself was rather mediocre and the comic relief a little lacking.

On some good points, it was nice to see Deep Space Nine actors J.G. Hertzler (General Martok) and Jeffrey Combs (Weyoun/Brunt) lend thier abilities to this episode. Despite his many other nearly unrecognizable appearances on and off Trek, Hertzler seemed not too far out of his Martok character as a Hirogen hunter. Combs on the other hand seemed to embrace a combination of both of his DS9 characters, Weyoun and Brunt; with Weyoun being a little more prominant.
