Re: VOY S6: The Voyager Conspiracy

Well hey, lookie there!

After reading Jammer’s review and then the comments for each episode, I then read Memory Alpha’s blurb about it, followed by lastly the The Cynic’s Corner review. And Jammer got a shout-out from the Cynic on this episode!

“Jammer’s too positive...” hahaha ... er, no offense, Cynic; but next to you Stalin appears too positive.

And no offense, Jammer... but his reviews are way funnier. ;-)

Re: VOY S6: Riddles

If you can’t see the distinction between those 2 situations, Janeway as Lakshmi, you might wanna report to Sick Bay yourself.

Don’t fret, it’ll just be a routine checkup. 8^D

Re: VOY S6: Alice

Hey! Anyone pick up on that “full complement of shuttles” line? haha

While I’m at it, pointing out things never before observed in human history, anyone else think this was a lot like that book/movie, “Christine”?

Gees, people, I appreciate the fervor in which you wish to bedazzle us with your witty insights, but maybe try reading the already existent comments first?? haha

Re: VOY S6: Barge of the Dead

Look at all these divisive reviews... people going to GREAT lengths to either praise or disparage this episode.

And for what? It’s funny... that human need to be seen and have our opinion heard and, maybe, even validated. But at the end of the day, so what?

Makes me question now why I’m bothering to type *this* haha

But... before I go... This episode drools, Threshold rules!!!! Nyah nyah!

Re: VOY S6: Equinox, Part II

Dateline July 7th, 2014:

Niall types, “...which is why I’m taking you on right now.”

hahaha... oh keyboard warriors, never change!

[Insert montage video of Niall bench-pressing keyboard while “Eye of the Tiger” plays]

Oh yeah... we’re supposed to be talking about the episode. Um... pretty silly, truthbe told. GREAT concept... but pedestrian execution. But... since I do so enjoy Trek... I was still entertained and for that I am grateful.

Re: VOY S5: Warhead

HELLO 2018!!!

Ok, enough pleasantries. I like the person a few comments above that said they hated the episode so much they fast-forwarded to the end. haha... imagine hating a goofy sci-fi TV show sooooo much in the middle of it that you fast-forward it to see how it ends and then jump on the Internet to post about it.

Wow. That’s some serious episode hating. I can only imagine how much fun they’d be at a restaurant. “Excuse me, wait-person... is this water organic free-range??”

So yeah. I watched the whole episode without needing a safe space or comfort animal, and it was by no means great drama. But it was fun. Voyager doesn’t really aspire to much more than that, and I shall lose little sleep over it.

In the words of another show I dearly love, “Repeat to yourself it’s just a show, I should really just relax!”

Re: VOY S5: The Fight

Ok, who’s gonna take a stab at talking William B up from 1 star? A nifty “Boxing Chakotay” limited edition action figure (STILL IN THE BOX!!) to anyone that gets him to 2.5 stars or higher!

Re: VOY S5: Course: Oblivion

Well said, Ky!

I rarely agree with any comments I read on here (because I like to be contrary), but yours just gets right to the crux of the matter and takes no prisoners in the process.

This ep: 3.5/5

Ky’s comment: 4.5/5 (.5 deducted for lackluster screen name).

If you feel the need to constantly leave comments longer than Jammer’s actual reviews, please report to the Captain’s Ready Room for disciplinary proceedings.

Re: VOY S5: Bride of Chaotica!

Hello, PhoenixFyre... I greet you from 2,633 days in the future!

Time has proven that your comment of August 17, 2010, was accurate; so do not despair! Your prophetic words were not lost to history, nay! Rather they *made* history... a history that we here in the future are the benificiaries of. We owe you a debt of gratitude, PhoenixFyre.

For lo many of the commenters on this episode ARE buzz kills and party poopers... intellectual charlatans more enamored with their own keyboard-infused death rays than they are of enjoying Chaotica’s admittedly campy ones.

Upon excreting their vapid review, they sit back and read it multiple times basking in their own derring-do with a firm belief that their place in the sci-fi universe is now assured.

Oh, ok... perhaps I’m being a bit too harsh on the smug little buggers. Your phrasing was a lot nicer sounding. I guess even here in the future, we are still not perfect.

Re: VOY S5: Latent Image

I barely made it out of the comments from 2009.

I apologize to all those of you that commented from 2010 on. But seriously, go back and read the 2009ers.

They’re like reading the entries for a contest to see who can be the most pretentious by people that used a stolen credit card to pay the entrance fee.

Yeah, that’s a run-on sentence and now I’m coming across pretentious. Well, at least I’ll never be part of that 2009 crowd. haha

I liked this episode. I didn’t love it. It had a few flaws. So do I. I like me, too.

My next pass through the Voyager library I intend to read all the comments past the 2009 ones. I look forward to them!

Re: VOY S5: Infinite Regress

I have nothng to say about this episode that hasn’t already been said ad nauseum by the artsy-fartsy folks above.

No... I only comment to have the weird pleasure of saying “howdy!” to the very first commenter on this episode, TH.

9 and 1/2 years later, I can’t help but find it interesting. I hope “TH” is still out there, somewhere, and doing well. My thoughts are with you, oh random Internet stranger that went by the name TH!!

Re: VOY S5: Timeless

Prince’s Log, Stardate October 19th, 2017

I have just finished reading Jammer’s review and all the comments on it for the Voyager episode “Timeless.”

I find myself conflicted, unsure of how to proceed. My first priority is to protect the crew, yet I feel I must allow them to see how pretentious and bombastic so many of these comments are.

It will be for the crew’s own good, though I anticipate an immediate and debilitating effect on morale. This is the price one must pay when in command, and I can only hope some good will come out of it.

Re: VOY S5: In the Flesh

Oh wow... it’s going on 2 years since “John” schooled “Shannon” up there about not being so robotic... so elitist... so requiring things to be “official.”

What a maverick, what a free-thinker! One can just sense that John takes 15 items to the “12 Items Or Less” line at the grocery store and dares anyone to contradict his intrinsic worth by counting them.

Even after almost 2 years, I still get goosebumps reading his comment.

As for this episode, it’s damn silly all the way around. Completely and totally silly. But still an enjoyable hour, so what are ya gonna do? Life just isn’t fair, cause this episode *should* be better and yet it isn’t. But it’s still entertaining.

Grrrrrr

Re: VOY S5: Drone

All I’ve learned from reading these comments to a really enjoyable Voyager episode is that everyone likes saying the word “derivative.”

Half of the people that say it do so so smugly that you can almost hear them rubbing their chins afterwards while admiring their handiwork. So impressive... no, really.

Great episode, a textbook example of what decent Trek writing can accomplish. Keyboard wanna-be script writers pounding out the word derivative should be assimilated.

Re: VOY S4: Hope and Fear

Ooooooo! Strejda up there finds some of y'all obnoxious.... watch out!

Oh I kid. I'm sure he/she is a lovely person when not keyboard warrior'ng.

I would just like to say hi to my future self, however distant it may be. I expect it will be some time before I get back around to watching Voyager from start to finish once I finish this current pass.

But when I do, I plan to read Jammer's reviews and all the comments each and every episode just like I am now. Here's hoping Jammer's site is still up and running then, and here's to my future self.

Make it so.

Re: VOY S4: Unforgettable

Reading T'Paul way up there, almost 4 years ago to the day, trying to insinuate some prejudicial intention and then getting absolutely owned by Michael should go down as one of the most amusing (and educational) moments in Internet history.

I know several people like that, quick to cast aspersions with the thinnest of evidence, often leaning back afterwards with a smug look and arms crossed... practically beaming with the joy of how much more enlightened they are in a sea of neanderthals.

Oh well, what are ya gonna do. As for the episode, meh... pretty silly. Thinking I wouldn't mind some of that memory wipe technology being used on ME about now.

Re: VOY S4: Vis A Vis

Oh man, I love Jammer's site. Commenting on reviews written a decade ago but with the enthusiasm of fresh off the stove.

I periodically do a binge-watch of Star Trek on Netflix, and am now slogging through my 2nd run through of Voyager. I've enjoyed almost all the episodes, even the dumb ones (and there have been plenty. haha)

I think the difference is between those who watch with a critical eye, and those that watch to be entertained. I like to think I'm smarter than the average bear, but I have no problem firing up Netflix and hitting play on the next Voyager episode and turning off most of my critical thinking and just enjoying a group of people I am fond of going through some adventures.

Now don't get me wrong, I still chuckle or holler out at the really silly stuff. I was screaming that Voyager musta left Spacedock with more shuttles than crew members when most of you all were still crying over Tasha Yar's sad, sad demise.

But anyways... I have a routine, now, when I watch these ST shows binge-style: watch the episode, read Jammer's review and all the comments, then read Memory Alpha's behind the scenes stuff, then watch the next episode and repeat.

Of course, once I hit season 4 of Voyager I also have to start reading the Cynic's Corner reviews of Voyager, as well. (And seasons 6 and 7 of DS9). You think Jammer can be harsh... hahaha... Jammer is Neelix on laughing gas compared to the Cynic's Corner reviews.

Last, but not least, I love the comment section here at Jammer's cause you'll see people replying to stuff from years earlier. Sometimes, those people respond back and it's like, "Wha?? You checking the comments every week for years to see if you got a reply??" Who knows... maybe they do. Overly critical Trekkies can be weird.

Oh yeah, to CinYin up there... howdy. Nice post, kinda amusing. Well written, and good use of sarcasm. I have to give it at least 3 stars. I look forward to you maybe one day responding, say by 2019. And by then I'll be back around to my binge watching routine and will see this and it'll be like using the Hirogen communication relay to myself.

Awsome.

Re: VOY S4: Mortal Coil

Ok, hang on... I'm still digesting all the super-serious (supercilious? haha) reviews of this episode.

So many "I can only give it X stars" and "I must disagree in a somber tone, here's why..." comments.

Alright, enough buffoonery, perhaps I should reveal MY thoughts on the episode. To begin, I found Neelix's crisis of faith to be indicative of the inner struggle all sentient beings must have when objectively considering their existence. Much like when I look at so-called fine art in a museum, this episode made me cross my arms and rub my chin while having a deep thoughtful look upon my face.

In other words, it spoke to me. It conjured up my inner child while also liberating my inner geriatric. Like a mobility scooter with dangly colored tassles on the ends of the handlebars.

I laughed, yet cried at my own shallowness for having done so. I found the plot both specious and special, sometimes simultaneously.

But, I digress. I cannot in good conscience rate this episode any higher than 2.5 stars. NAY, try not to change my valued opinion... you must learn to accept my final judgement. I suppose given the right flight of fancy on a pristine Autumn afternoon, I could whimsically decide to raise my score to 3 stars but until such day, my verdict stands! IT STANDS, KNAVES!!

Now go... our time together must necessarily be concluded, for I must regenerate my immense mental faculties. GO! ... there are other episodes than this...
