Re: ENT S4: Kir'Shara

If T'Pau was able to cure T'Pol's Panar Syndrome with a "corrective" mind meld, couldn't the sympathetic Vulcan doctor from "Stigma" two years ago have cured T'Pol too?

Re: ENT S2: Stigma

It was a strange idea in the teaser to have Phlox be just a disembodied voice offscreen. There seemed to be no reason for it at all.

Seems weird to test the cloak of a vessel with the door open. Maybe it has a safeguard against that...

Re: ENT S4: In a Mirror, Darkly, Part I

Didn't the characters on other shows occasionally have "meetings with the Tholian ambassador" and such? Nothing ever mentioned that they couldn't handle room temperature.

Re: VOY S7: Renaissance Man

A race that advanced on the edge of the Beta Quadrant (basically adjacent to the Klingon Empire) surely would have made themselves known by Picard's time to the Federation, or at least the afforementioned Klingon Empire.

Re: VOY S7: Homestead

Neelix's "if they aren't welcome, then I'm not staying either" threat was extremely weak, since Neelix staying a while was wholly Neelix's idea, not theirs. They were already pretty much handing him his hat.

Re: VOY S7: Author, Author

If the Federation is capable of subjecting the holograms to work in the mines, then maybe it isn't the best idea to let them get their hands on the mobile emitter technology when Voyager get home.

Re: VOY S5: Latent Image

Just something I thought of...

if computer programming could create a hologram with emotions, ethical subroutines, the ability to learn and develop.... why would you have problems with Data and emotion chips... why not create and android body and put the computer program of a hologram into the brain and off you go.....

Re: VOY S5: Latent Image

I didn't like Janeway's arrogance here.

Look, if any sentient being had this problem... you would not lobotimize them.... you would use counselling, therapy, etc... if they are violent they can be confined to quaters....... you let them work it out.

So, if Doc is self aware, and thus sentient..... it seemed odd that she would essentially lobotimize him.

The end solution was right, let him deal with it however long it takes

Interesting episode. What would a human do... a human would likely treat the person he/she had a relationship with if both patients were "tied in level of severity". That decision alone makes it pretty clear the Doc has evolved beyond just computer programs and instant programmed decisions.

Re: VOY S5: Night

Hm... 15+ years later and we are still having childish debates about "MY Trek series is better than your Trek series.. nah nah nah". He wrote these reviews over 15 years ago, in the context of both shows happening at the same time. They were VERY different shows and it is natural for a person to favor one over the other. A DS9 fan would be driven nuts by all the continuity errors and short term thinking on Voyager after enjoying a series with multi year storylines and dozens of recurring characters.... I don't think that could have been avoided.

This is a good episode, I enjoyed watching it again tonight.

One thing that I thought about....... they get assaulted by diseases and aliens wanting to kill them on a weekly basis; so they get into a region of space where they can cruise for a few months with nobody bothering them and that leads them to essentially get depressed, panic, go mad, etc..... I guess they do need to be attacked on a regular basis or they get bored?

Re: VOY S4: One

Ah, how handy. 150 stasis pods just lying around ready to go on a moment's notice. Those Federation stations are so smart when stocking a ship for it's next mission.



Yes, I know.... Replicated, right? Well, considering all the replicators we see are the size of a microwave, it would have taken a long time to replicate all those parts and assemble them. And where did they put them after this was done? Hm.... maybe de-replicate them piece by piece?

Darn, too bad the crew forgot about how to make these handy dandy pods. They would have come in handy in future adventures.

hate to break it to you, however, they still use F for temperature in the USA so often you get that in Trek shows. She was not speaking in Celsius in that moment.

I can't even watch the opening scene where the camera pans through the village without my blood starting to boil, because of the sheer selfishness and hypocrisy of the Ba'ku and the ENT crew

Re: VOY S3: Basics, Part II

Would have liked a Suder episode once a year... he was an interesting character. That guy played someone in B5 that was an evil person who was mind wiped as punishment and put into an order of monks and it was an interesting episide.

They didn't have a budget to commit to someone being signed as a recurring, and I think they wanted to keep the focus on the main group and not have people pay attention to extras. They had very few recurring crew members unfortunately.

Someone in the thread went on about how they had translators when way from the ship. There was an episode in DS9 where the Ferengi said they had chips in their ears that did the translating... one can assume everyone had that technology.... although they didn't explain how the humans without any translators could understand Quark when his chip was working.... :) Trek was against having alien languages other than Klingon and a very minimal amount of snippets from beings they met. We just have to suspend belief on that one.

I don't get Jammer bitching about the predictability (everyone surviving, voyager saved, etc)....... what do you expect? This is a long term series and so no matter what premise you have, the ship and the main cast are likely to survive.. that doesn't make perilous episodes a joke. Sure, they could kill off a main character but that is not what they were about. Everyone survives unless their contract is not renewed.

I do agree on the ship always being nice and fancy and brand new after the most devastating of circumstances. Show us 3 - 4 episodes where things are still being fixed and broken, etc. I know this is episodic and they wanted it to be a situation where you could watch any show and not be lost...however, they did have some recurring stuff like Kazon or Phage ,etc and certainly could have done that from tiem to time.

I often have wondered why they chose to make Harry Kim such a dull and empty character who made no progression in the show. Even a promotion one rank up would have been something..... nobody of good merit in Starfleet stays an Ensign that long as far as we can tell. They gave him shifts running the bridge and he was considered a senior officer because he was on the bridge, yet never got promoted. Hell Tom got commissioned back into starfleet, demoted and re-promoted. was he intended to be an inside joke? Was it a slight on asian characters? was the actor so soft that they didn't care to develop him?

Re: VOY S6: Fury

Sentencing Voyager to the mercies of the Vidiians is more than just vengeance based on disillusionment. It pretty much makes Kes a psychopath somewhere akin to jack the Ripper or Jeffrey Dahmer.

Re: VOY S6: The Voyager Conspiracy

Janeway sent KIm to help Torres. When Chakotay sent Kim back I'd think Janeway would be like "um...go back and help" and call Chakotay into the ready room for a chat.

Re: VOY S6: Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy

A decently entertaining episode, but I don't love it nearly as much as most, in large part because I find the Doctor to basically be the Steve Urkel of this show. We get this trip into Doc's fantasy and then basically the same kind of thing with Barkley less than two months later. This one is easily better than that one.

Exactly. You can tell RDM was used to writing scripts set on open ports.
