Let this be your last Battlefield sprang immediately to mind, I hadn't thought of Return to Tomorrow but that would fit the opening rather well, and could have had a much happier ending.
Both Trek episodes crossed my mind as I watched "The Long Goodbye."
At times, I felt this episode was rather cheesy for its predictability and foreshadowing in excess. It seems as if written by amateurs and not cleaned up quite enough before production began.
Oh, and never give Dr. Weir action roles again, not unless the actress who plays her takes extensive fitness training courses first. Her action scenes came out awkward at best, even with the creative camera work and strategic cuts.
This episode was not all bad though. Overall I give it thumbs up because it did have some strong points and left several dangling story threads that can, and should, be picked up on again later.
And out of left field, I hope Teyla gets more story time soon. I am getting tired of her being shoved into the background this season.
