Re: TNG S7: Journey's End

Hello Everyone!

I'll probably catch some flak for this, but I have said American Indians since the 80's, especially after I found out they were named for the folks in India, which is where that very, very lost explorer thought he was...

I was actually quite progressive at the time.

I seldom say Native Americans because, heh, if we go back far enough, maybe there was another civilization before them that crashed and disappeared into dust, and they were the natives. Really, after a few billion years, it could have happened. Heck, go back just a few hundred million years, and dinosaurs ruled that area I believe.

Why don't folks get mad at the North American state of Indiana? Indian(a). No one ever, Ever, ever sees that? Are we hiding it under a rug somewhere?

Of course, it might be a very nice rug...

Just some musings... and no offense meant to anyone, and I mean ANYONE!

Re: VOY S3: Rise

Hello Everyone!

When Sklar fell out of the mag-lev, I just had to laugh. I watched the scene twice, and it seemed as if he was about 12 feet from the open door, and after he was hit he just kept shuffling his feet backwards until he was gone. I think if he'd just stopped moving his feet, and let his momentum keep going, he'd have fallen over about three feet away.

After coming in from the cold, perhaps Tuvok was having a problem with not having proper air to breathe. But after showing that one fellow just how strong he was (he caught his punch and took him to his knees), he could not overwhelm the stodgy scientist, and only won the fight because the scientist shuffled out the door.

Yes, I also noticed the beaming scene and had a problem with it:
*Janeway tells Tuvok standby to transport*
*Shot of ship shooting Voyager, hitting shields*
*Tuvok on bridge, using pad to save the day*
These three shots were bang, bang, bang, seeming to take less time than even a normal beaming would take. And it didn't look like Tuvok had just arrived, he looked like he'd been there for a few moments.

I really, really wished Neelix had actually worked on tether systems before. Finding out he lied just to get them over to the tether was a disservice. It would have been much better to find out he really did know what he was doing. Having a homage to another show is great, but only do it if it helps the show. This simply made me think he was the same, old Neelix. Doesn't know how to do anything really well, and lies about his prowess so often I don't ever believe a word he says. Then he compounded his lie by saying they always named their mag-lev craft. Did they really? Or did he just name his models? And if they did, how would he know? He never worked on them.

It never worked for me that the scientist fellow would completely lose his cool and try to launch the darned thing before it was ready. He knows there is a traitor, but does not know who it is or if they are near him or not.

HEheheh... yes, I also laughed at Tuvok not noticing the pad was held in place by a simple turn lock. He fought with it so hard... hehahahah... then, the baddie just twists the knob... hehahdhdh... the one who shouldn't be able to breathe... heheheh... stupid funny.

Re: TOS S2: Assignment: Earth

Hello Everyone!

@Rahul

Yep, it was a pilot for another show. And what you wrote got me to thinking...

I read recently that the original series never broke the top 50 in ratings, and of course we know NBC tried to cancel it after each of its first two years. Now, taking all of that into consideration, why in the world were they using it as step-stone for a new show? If they did not believe many people were watching, how was this going to help the new one get off the ground?

That just seems weird to me...

Re: VOY S3: Darkling

Hello Everyone!

One of the things I noticed was, and maybe it was just me, Kes was talking in a somewhat lower, huskier tone in this episode. Not quite to the level of when she was possessed, but lower than the higher-pitched voice she normally used. I thought she must have done that on purpose.

She was with Neelix for 2 1/2 years. For her, that's 25% of her normal lifespan. I believe she had a bit of a mid-life crisis. Also, the writers were hopefully trying to (finally) get her to grow.

Kes wasn't wearing the little dress thingy she wore for most of the first 2 1/2 years. Actually, I didn't understand why she wore the same thing all the time anyway. But, while I didn't really notice until a bit later, she seemed to wear at least two different sets of clothes in this one. I was astonished!

Re: DS9 S5: A Simple Investigation

Hello Everyone!

Silly things that stood out for me...

I liked the assassins. Just another day at the office for them. "I thought it was on stun", checks weapon and turns the dial. Later, when they are getting ready for the meeting with Arissa, he pulls out the weapon and thoughtfully changes the setting...

When Odo is above the bad guys, I was wondering what he would change into? Oh. Just Odo. Part of the fun with him is he can turn into anything during a fight. Otherwise, why have the ability? I figure stay liquid, wrap one up with a python arm, punch the other in the face with a sledgehammer. Nope. We got Odo. Okay, that's fine, but the baddies are knocked down/surprised, and I'm thinking she needs to jump on the guy with the gun. Nope. She starts to punch the Other one, while guy-with-gun stands up and starts to take aim. Yes, Odo was there to take him out with a non-sledgehammer punch, but I really wondered why she didn't go after the biggest threat.

Odo standing outside of the moving car was funny. And Bashir being upset Falcon got the drop on him was good too.

Everything else was pretty much mentioned. :)

Re: VOY S3: Blood Fever

Hello Everyone!

Heh, I'd completely forgotten they showed a Borg body at the end. I actually sat up and took notice. And as for the first go round in the '90s, I mentioned on the Cause and Effect (TNG) page that I stopped watching the teasers after the one for CaE gave away the premise. I'd have been very disappointed to see the teaser and have them show a Borg, because it was so great not knowing it was going to be there. Then and now. :)

Perhaps the hologram helped Vorik out for a bit physically. Heck, the doctor said his levels were coming down to normal. But since there wasn't a telepathic bond, his brain went and wound itself back up again after he left sickbay. Oh, and I didn't see anyone mention the bit of Pon Farr we witnessed in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.

Hmmm... I wonder how many Vulcans are in Starfleet? There seemed to be two or three on this ship, and I'd figure there are some on most ships. If they are on a deep space mission, do they need to make certain their Pon Farr cycle is lined up for after they return? Do some plan ahead and take a vacation? Do others have to suddenly request a shuttle craft from their Captain, and do they explain why? Even for something so intensely private, shouldn't they have a rule for this? And to keep the required knowledge out of the medical database seems rather absurd (perhaps it should be there for "need to know" situations, maybe pass protected?). While the Vulcans are seemingly one of the top sentient races in the fleet, are there any other species that just suddenly, you know, go nuts out of the blue? If there were, would you want one on your ship?

Re: Star Trek Beyond

Hello Everyone!

@Del_Duio

Yes indeed, it would have been better in another type of series, or at the very least, somewhere close to the Homeworlds. Not that we ever saw anything Close to this before in TOS. Vulcan dissolves and they decide to make huge (HUGE) circular space stations on the edge of nowhere? When did this happen? Was Vulcan the voice of reason behind not making something like this? Or is it more sinister? Something from just after the time shift made them pour resources into weird and strange things, even before Vulcan vanished?

I thank you for the reply. I was hoping to change the track away from the discussion that had gone before, if only a little bit. It seems even a mention from Jammer could not stop the course this thread has taken. That is a first for me.

Re: VOY S1: Learning Curve

Hello Everyone!

I've thought this episode over in my head a few times, and now it comes to this: I must make a comment! :)

If Voyager had caught Chakotay's ship in the Alpha quadrant, the members of the crew would be put in a penal colony (maybe New Zealand). Some of them are former Starfleet. Would they be considered traitors, since they had at one time given an oath to Starfleet to uphold its ideals? Or would the fact they resigned before joining make a difference? I'm not going on what happened later, just what has happened up to this point in the various series.

It seems the Maquis were given a free pass because, hey, they needed bodies on the ship to hopefully take the place of those that have been killed. That's fine. But were they given a choice on whether they wanted to be in Starfleet or were they drafted? I don't know that they really told us. I'd have liked a scene, somewhere, showing them being given a choice. If they chose to join the crew as Starfleet members, they would have an orientation, so they would know how to act and what to do in their respective fields, with perhaps some extra classes on the holodeck with a fake instructor (that seems very do-able), to hone their skills. There could even have been mention in episodes about how the training was going, or that someone was just cleared by Tuvok (who would run it) to be at the helm.

If they chose to not join as a regular part of the crew, they'd have the option to have a civilian job, perhaps in the galley or hydroponics, but something to help the crew as they tried to get home that wasn't a part of anything involving a security clearance. This could also have been shown in parts of various episodes, especially if one grabbed a phaser if/when they were boarded, or something as mundane as helping Neelix with a new hybrid food source.

If they completely hated Starfleet so much they didn't want to to have anything to do with them (and I'd figure there would be at least one), then they'd have limited access to the ship, limited rations for the replicator, no holodeck privileges, etcetera. These could also have been mentioned in B or C stories, trying to convince them to do something that might help get them home.

But instead, it seems that Chakotay spoke for his entire crew (and now a Commander, nice), and since he joined up, so did they. Yesterday, you were on a Maquis ship, manning weapons. Now you are given a Starfleet uniform and will be... cleaning some injectors, or something that isn't as important (unless you are Chakotay or Torres). What if you were good at weapons on their ship, but were a farmer before? No true clue about regulations and protocol? Well, here is your uniform. Now, you'd best fit in and do it the Starfleet way (which you may have no clue about), or you'll get a punch in the nose if you refuse. Or have to run laps with Tuvok. No orientation was even implied. And that would have been, quite simply, stupid.

I believe they had Years of stories that could have been C's, or B's, maybe even an A when they needed some filler. But nope. You've been drafted. You're in the Starfleet now.

It seems that part of the outline for episode one was: Maquis and Voyager are fighting. They get pulled into the Delta quadrant together. Maquis members are integrated into the Voyager crew after the crisis is over. Bliss results (because, you know, Starfleet). And we might do a couple of episodes about how some are not acclimating... later...

I once worked for a store owner who, upon finding out that a business opportunity had been missed, would take a long drag on his Barclay, then tell someone "You missed the boat" while slowly shaking his head as he exhaled. I believe the Voyager writers "Missed the boat" on the opportunities they had here, by having everyone (and I mean Everyone) get on board with wearing the uniform right from the get-go.

As with anything, your mileage may vary... RT

P.S.: Yes, this was mostly about the general state of Voyager, and not this particular episode, but I think it is relevant under the circumstances. I cannot put it under episode one, as it'd have spoilers. :)

P.P.S: It was never mentioned, but why were the former Maquis members given a different badge to show their past allegiance to the Maquis? If they were integrated, then they should have been Fully integrated with pips. But here is a constant reminder they were not a part of the original crew... (perhaps to show, if one was acting up, well, it's the Maquis?). A part of the crew is a part of the crew. To make them "different" was a disservice, in my humble opinion...

Re: VOY S3: Coda

Hello Everyone

First, I have to say I agree with @navamske. I've just seen too many older Admirals with a big belly, and have thought along the same lines as what navamske wrote. What, when Picard turns 60 he is going to be a fat turd behind a desk? Nope. Not only would the doctors forbid the Admirals to get heavy for their own health, the food replicators would adjust their calories and whatnot, no matter how much they ate, until their midnight snack was the same as eating water, calories-wise.

Second, Tuvok. Now, he's been acting like a stick-in-the-mud since the very beginning, not wanting to go to the holodeck with the other crew for parties when it is suggested/ordered he go, not wanting to try new things, not wanting to be one of the "guys" (even Spock played that instrument in the crew lounge). But he goes and reads Vulcan Poetry at a "Talent Night", and Neelix suggests to the Captain that the next time they do that, perhaps Tuvok might have something he must do on the bridge. Neelix, who has been trying to get Tuvok to do something... anything... different nearly every day of the voyage, doesn't want him at the next party because he just wasn't fun enough. And the Captain seems to go along with this. I can see how they were going for the joke here, but to my thinking this was quite rude. And not really funny.

And lastly, of course I knew it wasn't part of any reality to have Doctor snuff Janeway, so I just laughed. This part I DID think was really funny. :D

*Come to think of it, that'd be how Doctor would work in the Mirror Universe, if he existed. Great Doctor, but if there was no saving you, well, you were using valuable air... NEXT!*

Re: DS9 S5: By Inferno's Light

Hello Everyone!

I just finished watching this one again and liked it as much this time as I did the first time.

My biggest thought(s)... Changeling/Bashir was able to turn the ships shields into Super-shields, able to withstand the heat and pressure of a star. Well, if it can do this, I'd think All Jem'Hadar ships would have Super-shields. It cannot be something that only works on Federation equipment. Or was this just the technology, thought long (Star Trek) lost, from the TNG episode Suspicions?

I really thought Odo could tell who a changeling was just by being around them. He was around Fake for a month, but never realized who it was? @William B brought it up as well, and for some reason Odo was referred to in this episode, but we suddenly don't see him. Perhaps he could only tell after he was fixed, but even then, he'd have been around the Doctor at some point...

I'd forgotten the Romulans show up here, asking to join the fleet. It brought a smile to my face.

Would putting ships right in front of the wormhole with piles of proximity torpedoes help? It seems that it is a choke-point, and if anyone or anything started to come through, just fire before they quite get out. As a ship explodes, it might take out more, maybe even starting a chain-reaction. Those super-shooters they showed us on DS9 might come in handy for that as well. Maybe not for this episode, but for the future, to keep reinforcements from coming through. Just a Fleeting thought...

@Quarkissnyder made me laugh out loud, by noticing the weirdness of the Jem'Hadar taking them right to the place they wanted to be. Heh...

I really did like the makeup of the prisoners (not on their faces). A Romulan watching the door so a Cardassian can go through the wall, with a Klingon or two looking on. I don't know if any of the races like or dislike the Breen, but having one there as well, quietly watching until just the right moment to strike, was nice. And they have been doing this for a long, long time. Also, while some of them might have been there because they were replaced, I figured some of them were survivors of the earlier Romulan/Cardassian attack. Oh, and always remember, never turn your back on a Breen.

You know, when the Klingons (lots of Klingons) get kicked out of Cardassian space in about the amount of time it takes to read this, one of the commanders just happens to be Gowron? What in the world was he doing there in the first place?

I really enjoyed this two-parter. Very exciting and enjoyable. The first time I watched this, and saw the baddies head toward Cardassia, it was so unexpected I had to back it up and watch that part again. Dukat had almost, almost become an ally, at the very least a shade of grey. Heh, not any more. :)

Re: VOY S3: Fair Trade

Hello Everyone!

Ensign Vorik. Right off the bat, I knew I recognized him but could not remember exactly from where. Ah, the Enterprise, yes, that was it. Thanks Jammer. And, since he was playing a Vulcan the exact same way here, with the same rank, I'd say it's the same character as well. And I kind of like him. *I just did some minor searching and it has been suggested Taurik and Vorik were twins. But, they didn't put that in the show, so your mileage may vary.*

But... as I've slowly moved along during my re-watch, I don't recall seeing any Vulcans apart from Tuvok. There might have been some, somewhere, but I don't recall them. It seems to me if there was more than one Vulcan on board, they would hang out together sometimes, just as the Earthlings do. Like in the mess hall, sipping Vulcan tea and quietly reading at the same table, or playing Vulcan brain games together. Perhaps when Tuvok was losing his marbles after melding with the serial killer, Ensign Vorik could have helped him with his mental discipline (seems logical to me).

We've seen the engine room plenty of times, but this is the first time we see him? We give a pass to new Earthers we see, because many in the background are faceless uniforms, and if they bring one of them to the fore, well, we just didn't really notice them before. But with a specific race where there are only a few on board, it seems we'd remember them and they would interact. But maybe Ensign Vorik wasn't ever seen because he was on the Lower Decks. :D

I don't know, if they were home, I'd figure he was just a new crew member. But he's been on the ship at least two years, and probably longer, and they give him lines to speak that could have been given to anyone. He doesn't do anything particularly Vulcan-ish, he just seems to suddenly appear. That... seemed off to me...

Re: Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace

Hello Everyone

It has been years since I watched this, but that is mostly because I cannot see it on Netflix or Hulu. :)

My thought was this: They said something about bringing 'balance' to the force, as if it would tilt the odds in their favor. But they seemed to be tilted that way already. There were dozens of Jedi, but seemingly only one Sith (maybe, since they didn't believe he existed originally), with an apprentice. So wouldn't bringing balance to the two sides 'balance' the force? Perhaps they somewhat mis-interpreted the prophecy, because when *spoiler alert* Anakin helps to wipe out the good guys, what was left was more balanced. One Sith (with apprentice) and a couple of Jedi.

That was just my take on it anyway. Your mileage may vary...

At least Gates didn't ask out during the season. Only being shown as a Doctor? While playing a Doctor? Perish the thought.

And What's Hername asking out of the show because they are writing the Security Chief as a.... Security Chief? The temerity! How awful!

If only these folks would have realized in season one how lucky and fortunate they were... At least Gates was able to wise up, not being dead and all...

On the other hand, I'd stopped watching TNG for being so awful, and this was one of the first episodes I recorded for posterity. I'd seen one of the Klingon shows and was impressed with the direction the show had taken. While it's not one of the best outings, I watched it over and over again because I only had a few of season one, and a few of season three (I did get the rest in re-runs before BOBW). So I never judge it harshly.

And I know how someone can fall for someone quickly, as Troi did. I once fell for a lady that came into my favorite bar. I asked no questions and we had a great time, until her husband came in one night... Gimmee three steps indeed...

But I digress. He was a cool negotiator, and oozed calm and kindness towards her. I felt sorry for Troi when she had to tell the Captain she'd been in a relationship with him, when normally it wouldn't be anyones' business.

Lastly, I always loved the look on the faces of the Ferengi, with the sharp intake of breath, as the wormhole sped away...

The look and feel of this trailer reminded me of a movie. Quick shots here and there, a little dialog, then show us the bad guys. If I was unaware, and you told me this was for a movie, I'd have believed it.

I know there are only so many settings you can have, but when they started in a desert, I thought ST:V.

When they showed the bald baddies, I thought ST:Nem.

Re: VOY S2: Tuvix

Hello Everyone

My take on it was always this. His was not a new soul. There were two souls mixed together in Tuvix, and they shared a body together for a while, so intertwined they didn't know where one started and the other finished. So while I felt badly for Tuvix, and thought someone should have walked with him to sickbay and whatnot, those two souls were going to be separated into individuals once again. Two went in, two came out.

Secondly (and probably mentioned above, but I'm not reading 'em all again to see), I would have liked to see this have consequences over at least the next few episodes. Now I was never on the Neelix bashing bandwagon, and actually never talked to anyone who hated him when the show was running. I didn't like or dislike him, he simply WAS, as he was written. But it would have been interesting to see him be more thoughtful and contemplative, instead of impulsive and goofy. Maybe have an interest in meditation or something. And Tuvok, while still keeping his emotionless exterior, would start to try new things, just to experience them. Take up parasailing on the holodeck (for exercise, of course), or actually say yes to a new soup without a sour expression.

And they could have been shown dealing with their experiences together. Perhaps a few mind melds to help them put things in perspective, or re-live some of the things Tuvix did. Hopefully, the memory engrams of Tuvix would have gone to both of them equally. As far as I recall, nothing like that ever happened.

But most of that would have taken forethought, and asking the next set of writers to know what happened here must have been too much. Like him or hate him, J. Michael Straczynski would have had that happen, or something close to it, because on his show he did almost all of the writing. Maybe it's the downside of too many writers, and not enough imagination on the part of the folks giving the outlines of scripts...

Re: VOY S3: Warlord

Hello Everyone

I wasn't looking forward to seeing this one again, but figured I'd watch the performances and see how they were. Mostly, I liked them.

The one bad guy, that Tieran/Kes made bleed early on and who became higher-ranking, was the same actor who played the Klingon lawyer trying to take Worf down in Rules of Engagement. Ron Canada. I thought he was much better on DS9. Perhaps he was more familiar with how a Klingon might act, but was a bit lost with this new race and just sort of plowed through it as best he could.

Yep, I liked Jennifer in this one. Yes, I did notice the leather outfit that looks so much better than the potato sack she normally wears. It really suited her. I wonder if that helped her get into character, because I thought she was right on, playing the somewhat insane former Leader with flair.

Another thought on the Kes head battle between the two. The picture on the wall showed us the best vision of Tieran. I figure in Kes's head, he'd look very good, a General, styled, a perfect picture of health in his minds eye (Kes looked her normal, potato-sack good). But Tieran looked haggard, like he just stepped off the battlefield and had a heavy weight on his back. That look, along with the changing scene behind him, really worked to show how hard he was having to work to keep it together.

In conclusion, not a big thumbs up, but a small one. I wouldn't cringe if I had to watch it again, but I probably wouldn't look it up on purpose.

Hello Everyone!

I hate to say it, but I've not seen this yet, so I'm still waiting to read the reviews and whatnot.

But I saw a B5 reference, and had to glance at them for a moment.

There were eventually two Star Trek series going on during Babylon 5's run. If all three had an episode during any given week, I'd sort of hurry through the ST, then watch B5 slowly and carefully, even letting the commercials play on my tape, so I could digest what happened/make the experience last longer. I liked the ST's, but I savored B5. Not every episode was a hit of course, and the 1st season was a little wobbly from time-to-time, but what a show it was...

Re: DS9 S5: Rapture

Hello Everyone!

I liked this episode a great deal. But one of my favorite moments was never discussed:

Banner unfurls...

Worf: Welcome Klingons?

I just thought that was a nice Quark moment. :)

Now what is he going to do with all that root beer?...

Have a great day... RT
