Re: VOY S4: Hope and Fear

My biggest complaint about the show is the find and drop aspect of the technology they encounter. At the end of the series they should have a heavily modified Voyager. Instead we get basically the same model as it "rolled" off the line (with slight mods).
I agree with some that Justin, Ray Wise was great. Waste of an interesting species though and his plan was needlessly complicated.

Re: VOY S4: The Omega Directive

The Omega molecule should be popping up all over the place and their is no way for the Federation to put SNL lock on it. One thing that this episode brings up is two scenarios play out: If this pre-warp society can develop the molecule once then they can do it again. OR as this was the society's Hail Mary (having depleted their resources) Voyager left them all to die - a slow death.

Re: TNG S7: Inheritance

Another point about this episode: I can believe that Julianaa could be oblivious to her android nature because Soong programmed her to ignore any evidence that contradicts the idea that she is human. HOWEVER I call BS on her ability to fool scanners, teleporters and never having a routine check up? If her body can do all that then it would be some miraculous technology that could be used militarily.

Re: TNG S7: Inheritance

Nothing about Soong and data make sense. So Soong creates Lor who is considered a failure. So then he creates Data without emotions. Then he creates a replica of his wife which should be considered the most advanced android and the ultimate expression of his genius. But shrug lets focus on Data. Where the bleep are the other androids then? Don't tell me he really stopped and no one tore her body up looking for answers after she dies?

Re: VOY S7: Friendship One

I enjoyed the episode. The scenes with the baby were very impactful. I think people are forgetting that these people have suffered deep physical and emotional trauma so they were not thinking right. Also the error earth committed wasn't exploring it was basically breaking the prime directive (before it existed). They have advanced technology to a people that weren't ready for it.

Re: VOY S3: Displaced

Further why keep all these prisoners!? If they didn't want to kill they could have just sent them away to some distant planet. Also why would such and advanced race need to steal ships? Just stupid all around.

Re: VOY S3: Displaced

This is one of the dumbest alien plots I've ever heard of. They are lucky they tried this on a Federation ship. Can you imagine trying this on a Klingon, Cardasian, Kazon etc ship? They'd kill and or torture the introducers as they appeared.

Re: VOY S3: Alter Ego

I'm not seeing what others seem to enjoy about this episode. It just comes off as more character assasination of Kim. And the rest is just rediculous.

Re: DS9 S7: Field of Fire

As a mystery this episode is a failure (the killer just walks on the elevator?). As a psychological study I'd lien towards success. Also the scene of the klllet and Ezrinpointimg guns at each other from across the station is sci fi gold. Too bad it was in a so so executed episode.

Re: ENT S3: Chosen Realm

It is funny to think that the Triannons based their society on the spheres and the Enterprise blows them all up.

Re: VOY S7: The Void

A nuclear submarine can stay submerged for up to 25 years yet this marvel of the future can't last a week without losing power? Even though they tried to explain it I'm still not buying it.

Re: VOY S7: Lineage

I have always thought Star Trek played fast and loose with the "lineage" of the characters. Human genes must be VERY weak since they are almost never dominant: half Vulcan, half romulan, half Klingon, half Ocompan...the list goes on and on. They always look like the alien part of the family. And the dominance excuse is pretty thin. Belana's child should have looked very human. AND in the episode "Before and After" suggests that any offspring would also be extremely short lived given the apparent rapid aging of the children. It makes for some potentially compelling stories but it's hard to believe.

Re: VOY S3: Darkling

This show highlights my love hate relationship with holograms on Star Trek. It is pretty clear that holograms can easily become sentient. Literally all you have to do is add some additional sub routines and boost some of their mental attributes. This is shown in Prof Moroarty, the doctor, the holograms that the Hirogen enhance. And yet they ALL very easily turn evil. As a side note it does beg the question: during the dominion war Or borg battles why doesn't the Federation create a fleet of hologram ships?

Re: VOY S3: Unity

I think the one collective member's comments about how thrilling it was to have a new mind (Chakotay's) in the collective is very telling. Clearly there is a euphoric feeling one gets from being linked. And the more minds the better. So I can see them begin to absorb new minds as time goes on, perhaps voluntarily at first, but soon aggressively (in fact if you think about it they forced some of the people on the planet to join the new collective). The only chance that they have is if they do not have access to the tech needed to link new minds and succeeding generations will be raised as normal individuals.

Re: VOY S2: Investigations

This could have been a great episode (should have been a two parter) but sloppy writing resulted in a so so episode. They get points for trying in previous episodes and Tom's bad behavior as lead up. They lose a ton of points for the plot contrivances. But the biggest plot sin was having Nelix bumble his way into solving the spy problem (maybe they should make Tuvok the morale officer and Nelix can handle security.). So what was the point of having Tom risk his life and the lives of the Talaxians??? All they needed was Nelix and the comm history.

Re: VOY S3: Blood Fever

I remember enjoying this episode when it first aired because it set up the Tom and Bellana relationship. On second view Indefintky see the issues raised by some posters. But really TOM was just as much a "victim" here. She was kinda forcing herself on him.

As a side note Vulcans and Kilngons are supposed to be stronger but time and again they don't really show this.

Re: VOY S6: Fury

The crew seems woefully undertrained. As Kes walks around reeking havoc the crew just stands there watching. A couple of redshirts shoot her once and then....stand there.

Re: VOY S2: The Thaw

The biggest failing of this episode was the missing information. Only five people left on a planet? No one tried to rob the planet in all those years? Why didn't they think of sending in the Doctor in the first place? Just blindly send in your crewmen to a situation where there was clearly something wrong with the system. I wanted to see Voyager get something out of their kindness from the planet.

I enjoyed this episode despite these omissions. Mostly due to Michael McKean.
