If you're willing to fill in a few gaps with some unspoken dialogue then there are no real issues with the end at all.

Re: VOY S3: Basics, Part II

I know my comment on this review is coming a bit late, but it seems to me that the constant complaint about episodes ending with foregone conclusions is missing the point of Star Trek. Star Trek has always framed things in terms of a problem and then coming up with a way to resolve it. Granted, there are some resolutions which are copouts or cheats, or could've been done better, but it goes without saying that certain things will not change. These aren't movies after all.

It just seems to me that complaining about Star Trek episodes having a foregone conclusion ending is like complaining about the passenger space on a motorbike or how waterproof sandals are. We know this is how it's going to be, so the review should be done with that in mind.

Re: ENT S4: These Are the Voyages...

Everything's been said. It was a wretched way to end the series, and Trip's death was utterly pointless. It almost seemed spiteful.

To anyone who feels bad for ragging on this episode, I read an interview recently which Braga gave in 2012, I think, where he referred to it as 'idiotic', noting that 'the cast hated it' and that it was the 'only time Scott Bakula was pissed with me'.

(before I get too forgiving of Braga, I've also read him say there was 'nothing wrong' with the writing in Enterprise, that it didn't kill the franchise, and oh yeah, pretty sure he claimed Voyager was better than TNG. But never mind.

I've just finished watching Voyager and Enterprise back to back, and to be absolutely honest, I think I actually preferred Enterprise. It was hamstrung by the least memorable or well developed cast of characters in Trek, but in certain respects it tried harder than Voyager. Voyager was allowed to just coast under its own inertia when it had become terribly disappointing, perhaps because (inexplicably) at the time it was more popular than DS9. At least on Enterprise the producers got the message and by the end of season two told B&B to pull their fingers out and do something to make the show interesting! To their credit the second half of season three was pretty damn solid, and better than most seasons of Voyager IMO.

So a dismal end to a series which just never really gelled, but could have been so much more, if the writing hadn't been so unadventerous and lazy, til it was to late to matter.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

@Peter G., yes, you are right. That is a pretty glaring continuity gap. That said, I can't get too upset about it because Star Wars is a franchise that has always played loose with continuity. Remember, Obi-Wan said Luke's father died, yet we later learn what he said was from a "certain point of view." Heck, Obi-Wan ages 40 years in between ROTS and ANH. Star Wars fans have always had to retcon inconsistencies. I wish we didn't have to, but for me at least the ending of Rogue One doesn't ruin the movie.

Re: TNG S2: The Schizoid Man

A well-worn idea of transfering human consciousness into an android -- seen this many times such as in TOS "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" or even "Turnabout Intruder" in a way. The episode was watchable due to the humor of Data's eulogy and his insubordination of Picard.
I compare the ending here to "Elementary, Dear Data" as Picard confronted Moriarty and it could have gone wrong depending on how the writers wanted to end it. In this episode, it's simply that Graves realizes what's right and wrong and that's about it. Pretty predictable. Maybe another ending is the crew zaps Data and Graves' consciousness is lost.
I didn't mind the episode but it's nothing special or original. Liked the acting by Spiner and the actor who played Graves added some levity but this episode doesn't give anything more than TOS versions of this theme. 2/4 stars.

Re: TNG S2: Elementary, Dear Data

I too feel this episode got off to a slow start - it was probably 2/3 of the way through that they realized holodeck is acting on its own. Some of this background is necessary of course but it would have been more interesting to see what else Moriarty could do from the holodeck.
The actor playing Moriarty did a terrific job - he had that mischievous/almost evil look in his face.
The ending with Picard/Moriarty was on a knife's edge for a moment until Moriarty gives in and lets Picard have control. I thought the concept of Moriarty gaining sentience (with suspension of disbelief on my part) was an interesting twist but it should have been linked to the episode with the Bynars.
I'm a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, quite familiar with the canon and thought it was a good idea for a story to have Laforge/Data try something along those lines. This episode was entertaining with a good resolution at the end. I'd give it 3/4 stars.

Re: VOY S6: Unimatrix Zero, Part I

@ Justin
> How Axum was assimilated at Wolf 359 [..] Seriously, have any non-canon nerds out there tried to retcon this one?

I suppose you could assume that there was another Borg cube there (backup?) that no-body saw somehow. Maybe they assimilated a Romulan cloaking device. (That they never seem to use.. Maybe it takes too much energy, even for a species that uses.. who knows what.. for power)

Maybe they have escape pods? Nah, they'd just leave them behind, like the Borg Kids.

Or, if you want to go the full silly-technobabble route, you postulate there was a solar flare at the same time that they blew up the cube at W459, which then interacted with a polaron field and cross-polarized neutrinos emitted from the Borg Eye Of Harmony power source, which opened up a wormhole to the nearby Borg transwarp conduit, as well as simultaneously creating a spatial divergence field. You know, like the one in TNG "Second Chances", VOY "Deadlock", and DS9 "Children of Time" (well, not really).

What all that nonsense means is that while one Borg cube was indeed destroyed, the other one slipped down the rabbit.. er *worm*-hole and returned to the Delta Quadrant.

Or more likely, it ended up stranded who knows where, because the divergence field and the cross-polarized neutrinos threw the cube into some random spot in the transwarp network. Sort of like that ship in Andromeda that lost it's captain, and so wandered around in the slipstream for a number of years.

Anyway, they got found eventually, and so Axum finally joined the collective.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

@ Jason R.,

From when I watched ANH as a kid up until this day, when Vader tells Leia "You are a member etc..." (and a traitor) it was plain to me that she had never before been accused of this, and that he knew it to be true even if no official case had ever been made about her. The dialogue is meant to convey not only that he knew she was lying, but also that he had the power to ignore normal legal procedures and could unilaterally act on whatever he wanted to. It was about establishing that Vader's personal hunch about her trumped her rights or her standing in the senate. Her comments to him do not at all come across as a last-ditch flim-flam, but rather seem to indicate that she still believes she has full diplomatic immunity and that he actually has no right to do what he's doing. You can override the tone of that scene and imagine that it's all an elaborate acting job by her, and that she knew her number was up from the word go, but that's pretty much a retcon as far as I'm concerned.

Even the later scene where Leia encounters Tarkin reinforce the idea that she legitimately believed her rights were being violated, when she tells him that only he 'could be so bold' (as to imprison a member of the senate with no warrant). This would not be the attitude of someone who had just escaped from a warzone with plans in hand, Vader having personally watched them go. It would just be an illogical position for her to take. "Nuh uh, it wasn't me!" Right. I view it as a pretty big continuity gap. It wouldn't have been *quite* as bad if they hadn't inserted Leia at the end of Rogue One; that way we might have guessed that there was some downtime while Leia boarded elsewhere, and Vader caught up with them eventually, and Leia could legitimately pretend to not know why Vader was so intent on following the blockade runner. That being said it still wouldn't be a perfect fit since I do think Vader implies that it's Leia who has the plans (and whom he is chasing), rather than the Tantive IV having been the ship to personally run off with the plans.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Thanks for explaining. None of that bothers me because I always thought that the “diplomatic ship” thing in a New Hope was just a flimsy last-ditch cover story that nobody thought the Imperials would actually believe - the ship is fleeing from the Imperials and filled with uniformed Rebels who fire at the Stormtroopers, and Vader doesn’t seem to take it seriously when he interrogates Captain Antilles and Leia - but as many times as I’ve seen A New Hope, I haven’t watched it in a while, so I don’t remember all the dialogue from the beginning.

I personally find 'mirror universe' episodes an annoying waste of time, and although I suppose you could just argue for the fun aspects of this one, I found it hard to take filling the entire cast with psychopaths and sadists, and then in the final act putting them in danger and presumably expecting us to root for them.

Re: ENT S4: Affliction

I find myself picking one episode to comment on with from these trilogies, for some reason. As it is, I don't really have a lot to add. This is the best episode of a trilogy which is weaker than the previous ones (though stronger than the silly damned two-parter that kicked off the season).

One question: during their mind-meld, how does T'Pol manage to see things that happened AFTER Hoshi was either unconscious, or at very least lying on the ground face-down, away from the action? I suppose it would be possible if she were sharing reconstructed memories (if you can see yourself in a memory, it's a reconstructed, not a true memory, unless you're looking in a mirror) but then I thought the whole point of mind melds was that they were precise and not reconstructive.

Also thought Malcolm got back in Archer's good books too easily (this wasn't proven til the start of that slave-girl episode, but it was implied) and can you just walk away from Section 31 like that? For that matter, Malcolm's walking away also seemed a bit of a sudden change after his obdurately refusing to reveal a thing to Archer for so long. At least we got to see a bit more of him. He got some really solid episodes in the latter part of season three and has been rather underused again since.

Agree with Cloudane about Trip and T'Pol. Enough, already. Of course we went through this with Kira and Odo, and I guess that did pay off eventually, but if this is going anywhere, I wish it'd arrive.

Re: TNG S6: Rascals

2 out of 4 is just about right, as only 1 out of the 2 plots in this story really worked. The main adults-turned-into-children plot actually raised some interesting questions about how various people would deal with the rather mixed blessing of being so extremely rejuvenated (without any certainty that the effect can be reversed). The "Ferengi take over the ship and the crew have to take it back" secondary plot seems more like filler material than anything else, a ridiculous contrivance just to provide the adults-turned-children a situation that conveniently turns their problematic condition into an advantage.

Really, for all the hokey techno-babble in the explanation of how the transporter turned the adults into children, watching the ways they deal or... fail to deal with their transformation is pretty much the best part of this episode. I really would have liked the whole thing a lot better if the writers had cut out the secondary plot altogether and just focused on the adults-turned-kids trying to adjust to their situation. Yes, watching Riker flim-flam the Ferengi engineer with a lot of technical gibberish was pretty hilarious, but I would gladly trade that for a running gag of teen Picard repeatedly having to explain what happened to him to everyone he knows everywhere he goes. ("You know, Admiral, I am REALLY beginning to get tired of explaining this for the umpteenth time...")

Actually, the real crime the writers committed concerning this episode is that they never thought to bring back the new use for transporter technology they accidentally discovered in this episode for any other Star Trek story ever again. As some other reviewer once pointed out, had Starfleet perfected the rejuvenation technique Picard and his crew discovered here, the whole Star Trek: Insurrection movie need never have happened. To rub the writers' oversight in further, a certain fan fiction writer eventually *did* write a story based on this technology (https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6262409/1/Remembrances) that would have made just as good an episode of the show as anything in its actual canon.

With Miles and Keiko, I can understand why the show's writers really wouldn't want to pursue their dilemma any further, as his decision either to stay with his wife and try to make his marriage work (meaning he'd have to try to get over his squeamishness about satisfying her in bed) or take the coward's way out by divorcing her (over a situation that is in no way her fault) would surely have ticked off a lot of the show's viewers either way. Still, just bringing up the O'Briens' dilemma at all surely earns the writers some praise for leaving the viewers a tricky question to ponder. In fact, it inspired at least one author to put the characters in his novel (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LCGFE0G) in a similar situation and then have them come up with a controversial (but effective) solution.

Then too, as some of your commentators here have pointed out, having Ro Laren keep her youth and try to have a happier childhood the second time around might have taken the whole Star Trek franchise in some more interesting directions and allowed for more character development, especially since her adult actress Michelle Forbes refused to stick around for Deep Space Nine and Voyager. Really, I don't think the franchise's writers ever fully appreciated all the potential material for follow-up stories this episode left them. They must have been too busy trying to forget their severe misfire with the secondary story to realize how successful the primary story of this episode was.
