Re: DS9 S1: Progress

I hate stubborn eccentric salt-of-the-earth types like Mullibok (stupid name as well). "This is my home and I'm not leaving no matter what", etc. Really boring.

Re: DS9 S4: Indiscretion

Especially when Dukat can't get the regenerator to work, and the way he glares at the thorn as if it's his arch-nemesis.

Re: DS9 S4: Indiscretion

Eh, I thought the thorn-in-the-butt scene was very funny. Even if Nana's laugh does sound like a hiccuping hyena.

Re: TNG S4: The Host

Yeah, I could have done without Riker's body being used for sex with a colleague/old friend minus his consent, or even his knowledge.

Re: ENT S4: Home

All I could think about in this episode was how bony T'Pol looked. Someone please give her a donut - JB has always been slender but she looked almost skeletal in 'Home', and it was not attractive.

Re: TNG S7: Genesis

Jammer: "The first act, when the crew starts to go nuts, is actually kind of entertaining in its zaniness. Everyone starts acting strangely and bouncing off the walls ... Worf is non-communicative and aggressive..."

So how is that any different from his normal self? :p

Re: VOY S4: Prey

I think Seven was right in this episode and I'm glad she defied Janeway. If things had gone Janeway's way, the Voyager and her crew would have been reduced to their component atoms by the Hirogen in about six seconds flat. Compassion is all very well, but doesn't Janeway have a duty to keep her ship and crew safe? Shouldn't that override her duty to help one single (and definitely not 'innocent', by the way!) alien life form? She seemed all too ready to throw the lot of them under the bus.
When Seven states that following Janeway's plan would have resulted in Voyager's certain destruction, the best response Janeway can muster is the profoundly feeble 'Maybe not.' That says it all, I think. Seven saved the ship.

Re: ENT S3: Rajiin

I love Star Trek, I really do - in all its incarnations. But I'm tired of seeing the writers leap, like slavering adolescent boys, at any opportunity to flood the screen with barely-dressed women who have no personalities, no dialogue and no function beyond standing mutely and oozing sex. It's degrading.
Out of all the species in the galaxy, you'd think there'd be at least a few matriarchal species who are more prone to seeing men as scantily clad sex objects, but this almost never happens on Trek. The writers really needed to grow up.

Re: TNG S4: The Host

It makes no sense that Kareel (or any other Trill) would volunteer to be a host to a symbiont if it meant having her entire consciousness and personality wiped out. You might as well commit suicide! The symbionts are nothing more than deceptive, exploitative parasites in this episode. DS9's take on the whole Trill thing is a lot more plausible.

Re: TNG S1: Skin of Evil

I must be one of the few people who actually liked Tasha and wish she'd stayed around a lot longer. TNG's first season was, let's be honest, pretty dire and seems horribly dated now in every respect; consider how much the other characters developed in the subsequent six years, something Tasha never got the chance to do. I think she could have become a great character. After all, even Picard was quite weak in season 1. Anyway, one of the most widely criticised aspects of Skin of Evil is that Tasha's death was 'meaningless'. I actually see this as a plus point. The Heroic Sacrificial (tm) Death has been way, way, WAY overused in sci-fi - actually in all genres of fiction - and I for one get quite tired of it. I loved that Star Trek was brave enough to give such a swift, pointless and arbitrary death to a main character. Because the painful reality is that most sudden deaths are just like that, and I really appreciated seeing Star Trek reflect this for once.

Re: ENT S2: Cogenitor

This episode disgusted me, frankly. I thought the cogenitor's suicide was the fault of many people, but Trip was not among them. Archer, despite his lamabasting Trip at the end, was most directly to blame for refusing the asylum request. Vissian society is also to blame for treating fellow sentients like chattels. Trip could have been more careful, but ultimately he was acting from a moral position whereas just about everyone else was concerned with expediency and not rocking the boat. I wanted to punch Archer during the last scene for having the gall to chew Trip out for something that was mostly HIS OWN damned fault.

Re: VOY S3: Blood Fever

So, at the end Torres and Vorik are fighting over whether or not she's going to be his mate. No-one seems to have considered what would have happened if he'd won - would he have got to force himself on her? That was a very questionable thing to include.
