Re: VOY S4: Demon

I had this on as background noise then Harry and Paris died so mi skipped to the end where I knew they'd be alive again, only to hear idiot Janeway tell her crew to line up for replication by a silver liquid... you know what; I don't want to know. Next

Re: DS9 S1: If Wishes Were Horses

Buck Bokai...

Why would they place a chubby out of shape actor as "one of the greatest ball players of all time"? Was this a rib or some sort of inside joke?


I can get him being the best of his era.. perhaps nobody played anymore and nobody cared to be fit or work hard so he was fine against who he was competing against.. So that may mean he did obliterate the record book against inferior competition; that doesn;t make him a greatest of all time.

So, 20+ years later, does anyone know why they chose this particular guy to play a pro baseball player other than being some sort of inside joke?

Re: BSG S4: Blood on the Scales

@Michael: Your concerns are based in real issues (Adams and Rolling are willing to ignore rules when it suits them), carried to hysterical extremes (do you really think Adams or Roslin have any interest in power for power's sake?).

Also: LEE, of all people, as a future dictator?
STARBUCK, of all people, as a future president?

I can only assume that you have spent less time watching the show than you've spent typing comments about it.

If Fuller makes this show half as good as Dead Like Me was for the first 6 episodes, were in for a massive treat.

Re: VOY S7: Flesh and Blood

Once again it was established in the first episode they appeared that the Hirogen were at least spread out all the way to the Beta quadrant. And they all can stay in contact via their communications network. So obviously they shared the holodeck technology that way.

Re: TNG S5: The Game

I see Leffler and Crusher as two very high-functioning autistic people with a high-degree of social awkwardness, which would make sense how the whole game thing kind of missed them until it they were the only ones left not hooked. The two of them play well off each others quirks, but I sense zero chemistry. They both read as asexual to me.

Re: VOY S6: Fair Haven

Irish stereotype:Exuse me Father I need a bit of counsel
Doctor:Not now
Irish stereotype:But iv'e broken the 5th commandment again!
Doctor:Say 10 our fathers and get me latter.

Um Doc the Catholic 5th commandment is Thou shalt not kill the innocent.

So that annoying old Irish guy is a repeated murder? that strangely makes him more endearing to me.

Re: VOY S7: Endgame

@Timeship

I'm sure there's a perfectly reasonable sounding technobabble solution here. Like, the future tech Janeway gives past Janeway is surrounded by chronoton particles which renders it safe from the fluctuations of time. (See "Past Tense")

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

@Del_Duio, I'm actually with you here. I hope that they keep this mostly family friendly so that kids of a certain age can watch it. It's just a matter of where to draw the line so that the show can work for the more sophisticated audience as well. Most of that, however, has little to do with how graphic the content is versus how good the writing is, so this whole thing is really a bit of a red herring.

Re: VOY S7: Endgame

I just finished watching "Voyager" on Netflix this past weekend. I remembered why I was so irritated with this show at that time.
They use time travel as a fast way to get a plot point across without using any logic. (Not to sound Vulcan) Paradox after paradox, returns to the point, that once you create a new timeline, it will loop to the point of it's beginning. And start again. And repeat.
Janeway's solution was to go back in time, and give high tech equipment to her prior self, and bring them home earlier. Coming home earlier, erases everything, including the need to be brought back. So, by not doing this, they are not brought back and they stay, until, They once again are brought back, which eliminates their need...

The only way she''ll be like janeway is if she gets written inconsistently from episode to episode in a way that makes her look bipolar.

My first reaction:

Please don't be like Janeway!

But yes, I see potential here. Sisko started as a Commander too, after all.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

@ Jammer-

You're right about that, everybody laughed when it happened and so did I. I think I'm looking at it from a different perspective now though, as I much prefer the pre-emotion chip Data over the one featured in the movies (though he wasn't bad at all).

Also Alice Eve is super hot, but whenever that underwear scene comes on when I'm watching Into Darkness with my kids I'm just kind of cringing a bit since it was only in there for the T&A and nothing more.

And BELIEVE ME guys when I say I am far from a prude or a bible thumper or any of that at all. It's just what I get out of those Fuller quotes is that he's going to purposely try to push the boundary of what's acceptable just because he can now. Hopefully they'll push the boundaries of great storytelling first and foremost.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Re: "Family friendly" - I think the distinction is that most of the current Star Trek material is something that adults can watch with their kids even if some of the themes and subtext will go over the kids' heads. I vaguely recall watching Star Trek I on TV or video at home with my parents (I was born in 1977) and seeing all the movies from at least ST3 on in the theater. (I know I saw Wrath of Khan somewhere in there, can't remember if it was at home or in the theater.) My family and I also watched TNG together from Day 1.

In retrospect, did I "get" everything that was being conveyed? Probably not. I remember that when I first saw "The Outcast," I viewed it as a general "be respectful of people who were different" message as opposed to a gay rights allegory specifically. But for the most part, Star Trek wasn't something where my mom and dad would have to worry that I'd either be freaked out by the level of violence and horror or would have a bunch of uncomfortable questions for them when it was over.

So is the captain also going to be a main character or are we just going to here their voice on an intercom every once in a while?

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Aw, c'mon, Data saying "shit" when the ship crashed was a perfect use of an isolated curse. It fit the moment, fit the comic theme (despite the larger failure of that comic theme) and felt like a little wink to the audience regarding what they could do in the medium. I still remember the sold-out crowd for that movie, and that moment brought the house down. I just hope Discovery is as good at choosing its moments.

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

I don't know I think it'd way better without gratuitous scenes or nonsense and even swearing. Having Data say "shit!" when the ENT-D was crashing was bad enough, I don't want to hear it 10 times every episode to be honest.

Also isn't it better that way because then when Riker tells Picard "SHUT UP! As in close your mouth and stop TALKING!" it's all the better for it. If they talked like that all the time then that scene wouldn't mean half as much. I think that's exactly why they're going to shoot some STD scenes twice. So the 'director's cut' might have the Klingon Captain telling Number One the Klingon equivalent of "Go fuck yourself, beeatch!" and the reshot version will be something family-friendly.
