Re: TOS S2: The Omega Glory

...okay, eternal youth, US flag, religion (attempting to convince others Spock is the devil)? Obviously an attempt to criticize them. The episode is too difficult to follow, so I don’t know what to think. Where did those “aliens” get that flag, Bible, and other stuff any way?

Re: TOS S2: The Omega Glory

Okay, after 14 minutes I can barely follow what’s going on. Given the fact that the review essentially says this episode is incoherent I am going to assume that it’s not me missing something. Curious to see where this episode will go...

Re: TOS S2: Patterns of Force

By today's standards this is rather tame but it must have been rather shocking back then. A few well presented interesting ideas. Better than average in my opinion.

Re: TOS S2: A Piece of the Action

I watched the entire episode (yes, I am bit late posting this) and the extent of the contamination caused by a book and a few manuals is quite honestly absurd to the extreme. For example, you could hear a dog barking in the background, did those manuals tell those aliens how to make dogs appear out of nothing? By the episode's very admittance the planet was in its early industrial stages. Oh, and that must have been one heck of a dictionary that came with those books. And yes, without some artistic license there would have been no Star Trek for me to bash at all. :-)

Re: TOS S2: A Piece of the Action

Alright, I’m just past the first few minutes and they are pulling the earth clone with humans - err I mean “aliens” nonsense AGAIN?! How many earth clones are there? Oh well...

Re: TOS S2: Catspaw

Perhaps not the greatest story but entertaining. The sets and effects while most definitely not perfect appear to have the improved during the second season.

Re: TOS S2: The Doomsday Machine

Okay, having complained about TOS a while back I have to admit that a Tomorrow is Yesterday, The City on the Edge of Forever and this episode were pretty good.

Re: TOS S1: Tomorrow Is Yesterday

Even though the logic during the last part was a bit questionable this was a pretty good episode. Some nice reactions from 20th century men to 23rd technology. :-)

Re: TOS S1: Balance of Terror

Decent episode. Why were they behaving as if sound could propegate across space while both waiting for the other to make a move.

Re: TOS S1: What Are Little Girls Made Of?

Okay, I know not to expect much from a 50 yeard old low budget series, but sheesh, the sets were cheap, the costumes absurd and the acting wooden. Also got to love how things in most Star Trek episodes keep gettings utterly vaporized without even leaving a scorch mark... Hate to say it but this episode was pretty bad.

Re: TOS S1: Mudd's Women

While initially amusing the story become difficult to follow, at least to me. Did anyone else have trouble making out what the actors said at times? Normally I can understand English (second language) fine... Oh well.

Re: TOS S1: The Enemy Within

Nice episode. But no shuttles? How cold did it get down there? Can people survive that? Those creatures were quite obviously dogs in a costume. Did some one say one was a stuffed animal? :-)

Re: VOY S4: The Killing Game

Very minor nitpick: the Citroen 2cv that drives past in the background at a few points is waaay too recent for WWII by about 20 years or so. Nice episode btw.

Re: VOY S4: Prey

Very nice episode, but a nitpick: why would an ASTEROID have what appears to be a cavern with an m-class environment? (Breathable atsmosphere, roots, dripping water, etc.)

Re: VOY S4: Mortal Coil

While this is a very nice episode, seeing yet another incident where a shuttle is easily damaged makes a wonder how the crew still even dares to take on of those things outside. Yes, I know, a necessary minor contrivance for the story to get going. But still... Sigh.

Re: VOY S3: Rise

That elevator thing isn't as implausible as you might think. Look up about space elevators. Have to agree about those shutle crashes though, Voyager makes it looks as though they are ridiculously unreliable. Had no objection with the Neelix and Tuvok stuff. I somewhat agreed with Neelix here even if he can be a bit childish and annoying.

Also, since when does merely downloading files cause them to disappear from the system they were on?

Re: VOY S3: Future's End, Part I

One of my favorite episodes. Nitpick: wouldn't vaporizing an entire truck produce a lot of heat and leave some sort of mark?

Re: VOY S2: Death Wish

Except for one of the Q's idiotic remarks about the crew's DNA being scattered around the cosmos (more like fundamental particles and since when could life magically spring from loose DNA strands?) I thought this was a pretty good and thought provoking episode.

Re: VOY S1: Jetrel

For the most part a very nice episode, but it had to have typical DNA nonsense thrown in: would any one care to explain how you go about finding a person's atoms using their DNA?? DNA is made of atoms, not the other way around. Also I don't think DNA gives an exact specification as how to put all the pieces back together. Oh well...

Re: VOY S1: Phage

Nice episode, but if the aliens could adept Kes's lungs, then why not replicate lungs (something stated as possible, right?) and adept those?
