Re: TOS S1: Tomorrow Is Yesterday

I really liked this episode, but I wish Captain Christopher's child that would change the future had been a daughter instead of a son. And that the thrilled comment from him had been "I'm going to have a daughter? Wow!"

I know, I know, this was 1967.

Re: TOS S3: All Our Yesterdays

I also liked the character actors in the 1700's type era Kirk lands in. That whole dimension and the characters in it (the woman accusing Kirk of witchcraft, the magistrate, and the jailer) was very well done.

Re: TOS S1: Errand of Mercy

Response to the criticism that the Organians did not reveal themselves for so long into the episode: Besides abhoring violence, they also abhorred interfering. They were trying to stay out of it as long as they could.

The final scene was the best, where we see the ever placid Organian consul leader actually get angry. He didn't like feeling that emotional. After stopping the war, the Organians disappeared because "beings like yourselves are intensely painful to us".

Lastly, the concept of disabling weapons is very appealing, rather than trying to teach people not to be violent. So much simpler. Wish we could do that.

Re: TNG S7: Inheritance

This episode opens with Geordi telling Data that he must learn to accept information which comes along in life that does not fit one's own personal narrative and expectations - i.e., that he has a "mother". Then it ends with everyone advising Data that he should not reveal to his mother that she is an android, because it would spoil her own personal narrative and expectations.

Re: TNG S7: Attached

Nice story device to have the first breakfast conversation with Picard and Beverly chuckling over the fact that he had not been listening to her (so familiar to long married couples), with the rest of the story about how they can't stop hearing each other's thoughts. Good commentary in the end about the intimacy that produces.

Re: TNG S6: Face of the Enemy

I agree with Rob, above. Although I wonder if Marina Sirtis' acting seemed so bad because of the script. She did not utter one sentence for the entire episode that wasn't in a raised or obnoxious tone of voice. (Except the very last lines back aboard the Enterprise.)

The plot was not interesting, the guy who played the defector who returned looked and sounded like a beached manitee.

Carolyn Seymour saved the episode.

Re: TNG S6: Man of the People

And also, the final resolution, killing Troi and reviving her at the last possible moment to have her magically restored to youth was just a really dumb idea with special effects at the level of Classic Trek 40 years ago.

Re: TNG S6: Man of the People

This episode was one of the worst of the entire series. Boring, stupid story, (why did dumping negative emotions produce sex craze?), main evil character like a boring used car salesman, people from the planet of no interest, zero interesting scientific technology. But add to that the very creepy sex assault by Troi of the young handsome ensign she picks up in the elevator after a really ugly stare at him: "I know where to find you if I need you again" as he leaves her quarters in a hurry. Attacking Riker with those deep scratches on the neck, and even the abuse of power over the poor lady ensign trying to get help with work issues. There was nothing about the Troi depicted here that was even close to Luaxana's character, which is funny and charming, even if overly sexually aggressive. Zero stars for this episode.

Re: TNG S5: Cost of Living

I like the Alexander character and the actor who plays him. Strikes me as a typical rebellious kid (still working through the loss of his mother) moving into adolescence with the Klingon overlay of strong emotion.

Re: ENT S3: The Xindi

Two things. First, I can't believe they managed to make the theme that much worse. Please give me back the cheese ball, soft rock of the first two seasons. Second, they FINALLY fixed T'pol's eyebrows!

Re: TNG S7: Preemptive Strike

The first time I saw Preemptive Strike, I had the same impression of that last shot on Picard's face as I did today, seeing it again just now... anger, yes, at the mission's failure and Ro's betrayal; but anger at himself for losing her. For throwing her away, really. She wasn't capable of doing what Starfleet asked, and he should have known that. Riker in makeup and earring was readily accepted by the Maquis. Surely, Starfleet could have used a similar decoy for this mission?

Re: VOY S3: The Q and the Grey

I dunno, Bob - Lt. Barclay's appearances on Voyager usually seemed to work.
