Re: Star Trek: Generations

@Chess - I am sorry to hear about your brother. I hope you and he have some quality time together before his passing.

I agree with your assessment of this film. It's obviously not perfect, but for me it hits all the right notes. I was so excited when I first saw it on the big screen with my friends in my final year of high school, and it has lost none of its charm in the years since.

Re: TNG S2: Loud as a Whisper

Watching and commenting

--Peacemaker. Why should it bother Worf that Riva negotiated Klingon-Federation treaties?

--Riva's bee line for Troi is very creepy. He's just generally creepy, though the presentation of those three communicators is nicely done.

--It's hard to buy the idea that Troi is returning the feelings, but I guess she is.

--Very boring. I literally fell asleep. Will have to try to finish this later.

Buona Notte, Trekolini.

Re: VOY S5: In the Flesh

The episode itself gives no details but Janeway theorizes that they may have stolen info from the Borg. Maybe I’m missing something here, but the episode’s premise sounds like it’s built on quicksand.

Re: TNG S6: Suspicions

Wow, seriously the only thing I remembered about this episode, which I think I lastsaw in 1993, is "tennis elbow". But it all started coming back, reading this review and the comments.

I have nothing to really say in defense of this turkey, but two small things:

Why's everyone so hard on Beverly (not my favourite character either) for her actions in this episode, but they give Riker and even Picard a free pass for "The PEgassus". Seems like both of them should have been hauled over the coals for Starfleet for that. Picard mentions offhand at the end an "inquiry" into Riker's conduct, but, seems to me he could be considered just as guilty. I don't blame you all though; Riker and Picard make a great duo and I honestly always wanted to see them team up more, but the regs on ship kind of prevent tht most of the time as one of them always has to remain in charge of the ship.

The other thing, of course, is that I totally agree with the comments about the ridiculous portrayals of the Ferengi in this episode and others, and the weird attitude toward some of the alien races on this show. But I'd just like to put forward the idea that, just because this one family decided they wanted to honour an ancient Frengi death ritual custom, doesn't make it the norm among all Frengi, or imply that the whole race follows this one creed.

Now back to hating. Carry on.

Re: VOY S5: In the Flesh

I don't know that anyone is being unfair to anything.

What I'm saying is that it's more than plausible for species 8472 to do this using the information they had, albeit patchy and incomplete.

Re: VOY S5: In the Flesh

Yanks, it’s a matter of details. You may remember TNG’s “Future Imperfect” where machines could read Riker’s mind and create a “future” for him but it was riddled with holes, as would seem likely from simulating something the simulators know nothing first-hand about.

Nor am I being unfair to Voyager, as I made the same criticism about TOS’ “Patterns of Force” copying Nazism. However, I think even Patterns makes more sense as they had someone from Earth with historical expertise who should understand and be familiar with the Nazis.

Re: VOY S5: In the Flesh

@ Chrome
"So the Dominion comparison is invalid and Rahul’s criticism is fair."

So what's wrong with species 8472 practicing in the Delta Quadrant?

They are telepathic, so they could gain the necessary info from their contact with the Voyager crew and any Borg they linked with. The Borg had federation/Earth knowledge.

Remember, we (Federation) had an incredibly powerful weapon against them. One in which they had no defense... seems like a plausible angle for them to take.

Re: TNG S6: Rightful Heir

@Lupe Clone Kahless didn't automatically had those memories, the priests say they basically uploaded into his head their religious texts and presumably whatever else they wanted, since their plan involved Worf. It's why he didn't know things like who the man from legend he spoke was .

Re: TNG S6: Aquiel

Funny, i sort of remembered this episode, but only the mystery plot bit and not at all Aquiel or the Geordi romance thing. So much of that type fo character stuff on TNG just seemed like total fluff, to me. Oddly though, I actually enjoyed it when DS9 did similar explorations.

The twist witht he dog being a life-absorbing "mimick" alien is, of course, straight out of Carpenter's take on The Thing. Not a bad thing to reference.

Re: VOY S5: In the Flesh

Right, we don’t know what fluid space is and is easy to conclude the writers themselves don’t know. The wormhole on the hand, is very well established over multiple episodes including the pilot. So the Dominion comparison is invalid and Rahul’s criticism is fair.

Re: VOY S5: In the Flesh

@ Chrome’s Voyager Alt

"Of course The Dominion had a stable wormhole so, yeah."

For what we know about fluidic space, it might just be a simple as setting a point and entering our space. It might be like a mobile borg transwarp hub. Distance might be irrelevant.

Agree with Vladimir. Pah Wraith Keiko was hardly different than Fine I’ll Wear The Red Dress Keiko. You would think as a botanist, she would grow some choice plants that may put her in a better mood.

Re: ENT S2: The Crossing

Trip holding up the slice of white bread and asking "Have you tried this?" is one of my favourite moments in Star Trek.

Otherwise - yeah, fine but unremarkable. So, sure, two stars. Worth watching the white bread moment, though.

Re: TNG S7: Parallels

Yes, it was initially triggered on his trip back from the tournament in the shuttle. This could be a convenient excuse as to why we DON'T see drastically different alt Universes...it needs to be him on that shuttle passing through the fissure the same moment that the alt-Worfs were. So the differences he encounters are not waaay off of what his "correct" Universe is like, since they were all in a position to have been making the same trip.

There's only one standout here, and that is the one trying to survive the Borg-ified Universe. Hard to believe that alt Worf would have been attending a tournament during such chaos, but he could have been doing something else at the time which demanded the use of a shuttle - which just happened to pass over the same fissure.

One standout of thousands. I'll buy it.

"Does it? To whom? What's to say the "how we lived" bears any consequence on the "grand scheme of things"? Who says there IS a "grand scheme of things"?!? "

But they did affect the lives of others. They helped other people in need that the real Voyager didn't. Regardless of their fate, their help and charity lived beyond them.

Re: VOY S4: Concerning Flight

Silly, but all things considered not too bad. Two things stood out enough to make it a bearable one:

i. Tuvok claiming to be from Scandinavia.

ii. Janeways parable of a small bird and its relation to human intellect.

2 Stars.
