Re: DS9 S4: The Way of the Warrior

Was sort of bored last night so threw this one on again.

As much as I like Worf, I'm one of those people who thought that DS9 didn't need him added as a regular cast member.

Re: DS9 S6: Tears of the Prophets

@TH:

"Or was this part of the ban on her and Worf ever having missions together? "

I choose to believe this is the reason. It actually makes a ton of sense and gives that other previous episode more weight.

Still yeah the whole "we want to have a baby!" and the Bashir / Quark stuff.. all that was just really out of place.

If someone ever invents a time machine for real they need to go back and convince Terry Farrell to stay on for a 7th season.

At this point I'd gladly take every bridge crew officer as a card-carrying member of the Rainbow Coalition as long as they hurry the damn thing up haha.

Re: VOY S4: Message in a Bottle

@ Dave

"We never saw more than one Defiant-Class vessel in any of those huge, thousand-ship battles on DS9, but here two of the three ships sent to intercept the Prometheus are Defiant Class vessels. "

The only thing I can think of is they had another Defiant class vessel on DS9 called the Valiant which was way way out in deep space on a training mission or something too. And since the area where this battle with the Prometheus took place was also at the edge of the Alpha quadrant it's feasible that other Defiant-class ships were in the vicinity.

Re: VOY S4: Hunters

The whole end scene where Janeway and Chakotay lock arms to go to the party- You can totally tell they were trying to build their relationship off for a big payoff at the end but ultimately pooped on it and hooked him up with Seven instead for whatever reason.

I mean I'm no Lifetime movie nut or anything, but wouldn't this have made perfect sense in the end? I mean Mark's out of the picture and all.. what a set up!

Re: VOY S4: Prey

Was up way too late watching VOY episodes last night, Message in a Bottle, Hunters, and this one. What a great episode! Also although they leave the "what was the right thing to do" answer up in the air it's pretty obvious that if they did it Janeway's way they all would've died.

I appreciated the cargo bay scene at the end a lot too. Imagine if somebody pulled that shit on Picard when given a direct order? They would've been confined to quarters MINIMUM. I'm actually surprised she still allowed Seven in stellar cartography to be honest.

Voyager always irks me because it CAN be a pretty friggin' awesome show, it just never lasts for very long. If nothing else it appears the series does indeed have more than "10 good episodes" like I've said time and again in the past :D

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

I'll take dark & grittier if it's like how DS9 was done, but I agree there should be plenty of optimism as well.

Every episode shouldn't be 48 minutes of decontamination chamber scenes, futuristic bathroom stall rendezvous, and F bombs haha..

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

The big news now is that they changed the main character (Number One?)'s first name to Michael. I can see this setting off all kinds of klaxons lol.

www.joblo.com/movie-news/star-trek-discovery-changes-sonequa-martin-green-s-character-s-name-and-rank-234

CBS has a big checklist somewhere in a back room of everything Trek's not had yet:

Gays? Nope not yet, check!
Transwhosiewhatevers? Nope, not yet. Check!

A show should never purposely try to shoehorn things like this in "just because".

Re: DS9 S3: Visionary

You know it's funny, I usually wouldn't include this episode on one of my top 10 DS9 lists however it's just so friggin' good every time.

I'm glad there's no Keiko, she probably wouldn't bat an eye if either of these two Miles' were dead lol.

Re: TNG S4: Night Terrors

Saw this again last night, I really like it. Yeah I know the Troi cloud scenes are silly however overall it's pretty memorable.

I'll agree with the others here about the creepy music- They outdid themselves here and it sets a great atmosphere.

Re: VOY S7: Author, Author

@Sean-

"Isn't there some kind of Federation legal mumbo jumbo about using real life images for characters on the holodeck? On the plus side, gave the actors more to do on this episode. "

I think we talked about this for the Barkley holodeck / Three Musketeers episode board before, and the consensus is that it's not illegal but it IS frowned upon lol.

Sure he could, he's the son of the station commander after all. And the Emissary's kid too. He could probably have half of Bajor if he wanted to :D

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

"Am more hyped for the DS9 documentary than for ST:D though. "

BY FAR

Oh, I can't wait for this! I guess it's coming out sometime next year and with some re-shot HD scenes or something since the Kickstarter went so well.

The only shitty part is no Avery Brooks. It's great it basically will have everyone else but that's like a TNG doc without Patrick Stewart. Does he just not like Trek anymore? I never see Avery on much of anything Trek (minus that weird Captains thing on the piano lol) and both times I went to a Trek convention he was going to be at he bailed (one in '96 and another in '14).

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

"I really don't understand this obssecion with the Klingons. "

Ask any Joe Q Public on the street and he's more likely to know what a Klingon is than say a Romulan or Ferengi. I don't mind Klingons personally however if they are aiming for broad appeal than that might not be a good thing either.

Re: DS9 S4: Paradise Lost

I'm still surprised by how many people hate Brooks' acting, I never had an issue with it then and still don't.

Is he Patrick Stewart caliber? No, but not many are. Dude is awesome and is only seconded by Picard as my favorite Trek captain.

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd scene!

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

As big a Trek fan as I proclaim to be I honestly didn't know much about Garth until I read up on him last night.

Now THIS sounds like a hell of a story if done right. It would also explain why the focus would be on Number One and not on someone of Issac's caliber. It'd also explain why there are Klingons being shown now and yeah the Axanar thing.

"Jason Isaac playing the ships Captain."

I was VERY excited to read this, that guy is an awesome actor.
What a complete prick he was in The Patriot!!

Too bad the captain isn't the focus on the show :(

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

Oh good, more delays!

I read one idea on Youtube where they hoped the series centered around a way to move the Discovery through different eras of time. It would support the initial rumors that the show might be an anthology too.

Re: VOY S7: Endgame

Ok, it just got over. I liked it better than I thought I would however:

The Chakotay / Seven scenes were kind of.. wrong somehow. It felt super forced. He has more chemistry with Janeway and she has way more with the Doctor. Blah.

I kind of didn't get the ending. How's exactly did Voyager end up inside the sphere? When Janeway said "it'll be in my report" I was looking forward to the answer as well!

Oh man they really needed to devote more time for when they got back. Whatta' gip!

Re: VOY S7: Endgame

I'm 3 minutes in and we're supposed to believe the eternal Ensign Kim is a friggin' captain now? At his rate, he'd make captain around age 240.

I haven't seen this since the first time it aired but that jumped right out haha..
