Re: TOS S3: The Tholian Web

The Tholian Web seems like a poor weapon. It can only work if the target ship is immobilised and has no weapons to fire at the small ships.

Re: TOS S1: Operation--Annihilate!

Really? 14 science labs couldn't figure out that the sun emits bright light? And then blinded Spock.. Talk about incompetence.

Re: TNG S6: Relics

Few things - where was Troi during this episode? Shouldn't she be counselling Scotty after being frozen for 75 years? Why did Scotty not have an official debriefing, as opposed to causally giving a report in the hallway? You'd think Scotty would be reading the history records to see what's happened since he froze himself. Geordi was acting pretty poorly to start - as was the whole crew, really.

Re: DS9 S7: What You Leave Behind

Good episode, some beefs of course:

The timing all off btw. the Winn/Dukat scenes and everything else going on,

I love how Dukat can just waltz into the Kai's office - is the Vatican that open?

I thought the wormhole was destroyed, so how is it re-appeared? Did the surrendered Dominion forces return to the Gamma Quad?

Funny how all those who left DS9 had to go that night of the party;

Quark hasn't benefited from his brother, Rom, being Grand Nagus - has he?

A good scene would have been a new Starfleet commander arriving to take command of the station,

Based on human physiology, I would have thought that cured-Odo linking with the infected-Founder would have resulted in Odo being infected. I guess Bashir's cure created antibodies that then cured the infected Founders.

Why was Worf still wearing a Starfleet uniform when he left the station - he had already accepted the ambassador role...a Klingon outfit would have been better,

Why exactly are Ezri and Bashir at stations on the bridge of the Defiant during a battle? Ezri is a therapist and Bashir is a doctor..I don't ever recall Troi or Dr. Crusher having a station on the bridge of the Enterprise-D.

Re: DS9 S7: Tacking into the Wind

So Damar makes quadrant-wide appeal to all Cardassians to resist the Dominion and all that follow him are a few dozen volunteers???? Not very persuasive to the other 10 billion Cardies..

Re: DS9 S7: The Changing Face of Evil

The aide should have brought security with him to Winn's office, seems pretty dumb to me. Or, Winn could have called security the second she learned it was Dukat. How did Winn get to be Kai anyway? She has like no charisma and seems selfish, isn't her role like Pope? Imagine all the cardinals voting for her...

Re: DS9 S7: Chimera

I watched this on Netflix, if you pause it you can see that the King on was reaching for his disruptor. Main nitpick, the odds of Laas finding Odo is probably a trillion to one. And how can he propel himself in space, or survive? Or become fire?

Re: DS9 S7: It's Only a Paper Moon

Of course it's probably necessary to have Nog react like this to his ordeal, but is that how a Ferengi would react to the event? Seems very human to me.

The Vulcans sure didn't seem to be faster and stronger based on their hitting and running abilities.

Re: DS9 S6: In the Pale Moonlight

I agree that the episode rigged it so that Sisko's actions are absolved of any real repercussions. Yes, he didn't expose Garak's murders, but he had no proof of them even if he decided to. Starfelet approved the plan, so his career wasn't at stake, and everything else he did was not that bad given the situation (Janeway had done far worse).

Re: DS9 S6: Behind the Lines

I was hoping that Odo would kill the female Founder and assume her form, so he could give orders to the Vorta. But , nope.

I like how the PADDs can't seem to hold more than one document or file at time. Gotta hand over thee PADDs? Even in 1997 a tablet/iPad was just a technical dream.

I guess no FX budget to see Dax and the Defiant successfully destroying the Dominio spying array. Too bad.

Re: DS9 S6: Sons and Daughters

If Dukat is now the leader of Cardassia, why is he living on DS9/Terok Nor? Shouldn't he be ON Cardassia?

Why would Alexander be such a physically small Klingon? Worf is certainly a large Klingon, and his mother K'Ehleyr was a tall human/Klingon hybrid.

Re: DS9 S5: Call to Arms

Several comments:

Since Odo is a god to the Jem Hadar and the Vorta, can't he order them to leave?

The station's offenses seemed to be much more awesome in The Way of the Warrior - many more torpedoes were shot out much faster it seemed than here.

Why didn't a couple of runabouts help the Defiant lay the minefield?

Why are station personnel the only ones working on a way to mine the wormhole? You'd think a crack team on Vulcan and Earth would be assigned to it. Hell, they made a special team to communicate with Voyager.

After the Jem Hadar destroyed the Odyssey in an unprovoked attack 2 years ago, I'd think the Federation would have taken a more defensive posture this whole time.

Re: DS9 S5: Empok Nor

Why didn't the guy who Garak stabbed contact O'Brien with his communicator after he was attached? Later in the ep we see that the communicators work fine for conversation.

Re: DS9 S5: Children of Time

So the hard choice that the crew made is suddenly taken away from them by ALT Odo. So really, they didn't make the choice. And afterwards, they don't seem that upset about not saving the colony. In fact. I might suspect that they are quietly thankful ALT Odo sabotaged the plan.

Re: DS9 S5: By Inferno's Light

Where was Odo in this episode? Seems like he would be the one on DS9 that could spot the Changeling.

Re: DS9 S5: Rapture

Why didn't Sisko just say "Computer save program"? No cloud storage in Quarks holosuite? Gotta use a flash drive in 2375 I guess.

Re: DS9 S5: The Ascent

So Nog exercises first thing in the morning, in his uniform, then takes a shower, then puts back on his uniform! No sweatpants in the future? And Nog can't send Rom a text message telling him when his ship is about to arrive? And of course, the runabout has no phasers, tricorders, or a medkit to take with them!

Re: DS9 S4: Homefront

No way Starfleet could have enough security officers to cover every city and town on Earth. Aren't there local security forces on each planet? Again, what is the deal with the two uniforms? Seems aside from DS9 and Voyager crews all other Starfleet personnel wear the TNG uniforms.

Very similar to "A'' Good Things", with the older version of the crew back on the Defiant/Enterprise in the future.

Re: DS9 S4: The Way of the Warrior

Why can't Bashir develop a scan for changelings? HE has one living on the station..analyse. The line that a changeling in the form of a rock will scan as a rock makes no sense, as it should not be able to change it's mass or molecular makeup, not to mention that even in the rock form it still has concioussness, as it can then change into something else.

I still don't get the two different uniforms thing.

Worf's line that he will need time to get used to a red uniform makes no sense, as he wore a red uniform in S1 TNG then switched in S2. I assume he began his Starfleet career with a red command uniform.

The Klingons could have avoided the whole problem withe Federation by flying straight to Cardassia.

Re: DS9 S3: Heart of Stone

So the Founders are impervious to phaser fire? When fake Kira shoots the crystal it expands. So logically the Founder wasn't hurt. Unless fake Kira used a weak setting on the phaser.
