Re: ENT S2: Dead Stop

"which is 3 degrees above absolute zero; can any computer really function at that temperature?)"

Re: ENT S2: Carbon Creek

It's pretty clear that after getting a speeding ticket, having to change a flat tire, being late for three appointments, stubbing his toe, burning his dinner, and accidentally setting his eyebrows on fire, Jammer sat down to write this review.

Re: ENT S1: Oasis

Hmm, once again Jammer misses the point of the Trip/T'Pol scene, even after bringing up the related scene from back in "Unexpected." Isn't it obvious? Everytime Trip gets involved with a woman, T'Pol gets all miffed, pissy, n snarky. :D :D

I'm watching Enterprise for the first time, so I don't know how it'll play out, but it seems clear what the writers had in mind for these two at this point.

Re: ENT S1: Rogue Planet

"Why don't they explain what they know? The obvious answer would seem to be because they know Archer would disapprove of their hunting of a sentient species — but no, because near the end of the story they lay all the cards on the table voluntarily. What makes them decide to do this, when nothing about the situation has significantly changed?"

LOL, I've often thought (and posted at least once) about how the folks on this board don't seem to get out much, and clearly that includes Jammer as well.

What has changed to cause the hunters to reveal their knowledge? Well, what are they all doing during that scene?

Drinking.

Hello???

I guess Jammer's never been out in the woods for several days hunting/fishing/camping/combat training or whatever with a group of guys. After a hard day or two humping around in the woods, it would be sacrilege not to unwind around a campfire with a few adult beverages of your choice. That's when the interesting convos always happen...

Re: ENT S1: Dear Doctor

Didn't read every one of the 200+ comments completely, so someone may have brought this up already but...

One group (pro-Phlox decision) is saying that providing a cure is morally PROHIBITED.

The other group is saying that providing a cure is morally COMPULSORY.

Both groups deny the moral right of individual choice to dispose of one's resources as one sees fit. Some might decide to provide a cure, others might not. There could be any number of factors that enter into either decision. But the decision is entirely up to the PROVIDER of help. And either decision is morally valid. No one is obligated to help, nor should they be prohibited from helping.

I'm firmly in Black Hat's camp from this XKCD comic:

Re: ENT S1: Unexpected

Wow, all these comments about T'Pol's reaction to Trip's little "encounter" completely missed the subtext of that scene. It almost makes me believe the stereotypes about trekkers... has anyone on this board ever actually known a woman?

I've only seen the first four episodes, so I may be wrong about where this is going, but it seems that the writers have been thrusting Trip and T'Pol together in subtle love/hate ways since the pilot; the gel scrubbing scene, their bickering with each other, the tense moments of the last episode which ended with Trip realizing he may have been pre-judging T'Pol too harshly, etc. It looks like there's some passion brewing beneath the surface with these two.

So given that context, is it so strange that T'Pol gets all snarky when she finds that Trip has been sticking his fingers where they don't belong, and is carrying another woman's child? She's clearly miffed, most likely because Trip isn't, ahem, "parsing her syllogism" instead.

And don't give me this "Oh no, you see Vulcans are emotionless and ... blah blah blah." T'Pol is written and acted in such a way that she often conveys impatience, frustration, annoyance etc. at the humans. Also, Vulcan/Human relationships are not unheard of (cough, Spock's parents, cough).

So game on with the developing T/T lovefest I say!! I'd give this one 2* at least.

Re: VOY S7: Homestead

I've never been a Neelix hater, and always considered him an upright scrappy fellow, regardless of his occasional annoyances. His early jealousy thing was quite offputting, but the episode where he fights Seska's buddy and ends up killing him and saving the ship was probably when I started to give him more respect.

Anyway, no one has mentioned a brief moment in this episode that really seemed like a subtle nod to his bravery and loyalty. When the miners were dropping charges on the asteroid, and Neelix was chasing them and detonating the charges with his ship's weapons, something or other knocks out his weapons. There's another charge heading for the surface, and he turns his ship toward it. Dexa freaks out and asks what he's doing, but at that moment, Voyager shows up to blast the charge and save the day.

What he was doing was aiming his ship on a suicide collision course to detonate the charge before it hit the surface. The scene goes pretty fast, so I wonder how many people caught the intensity of that moment, and understood the decision he had made.

Re: VOY S7: Natural Law

Sean - "Also Borg don't trip."

Thank you!! That whole scene took me right out of the episode (not that there was much going on there anyway).

We see Seven tripping, hair all disheveled, falling on her face, dropping the tricorder, sitting on a rock looking all forlorn and shivering...

Really? REALLY???!!!!

Is she a teenage valley girl lost in the woods or a freakin' BORG?? They made the best badass on the series look like a damp dishrag. Talk about lack of character consistency.

K, I'm over it now.

Re: VOY S7: Prophecy

Haha, I'm another one who wondered if that Klingon was Avery Brooks. But when he never got around to doing the bizarre Idi Amin overacting thing that Brooks always did, I realized it wasn't him.

Re: VOY S7: Imperfection

Wow, lots of comments, but no props yet for the fx dudes and dudettes that worked on this episode?

There are multiple scenes where an actor's head is opened up and an implant the size of a freakin' ROLL OF QUARTERS is either pulled out of it or inserted, all clearly visible in a single shot. That's AWESOME work.

I like these emotional eps a lot; the whole cast was just spot on. Also, I don't know why the action scene bothers people. It was fun!

PARIS: I need you on tactical! When they come back around, target their engine core.

JANEWAY: Yes, SIR!!

hehe

I'm in the 3.5 to 4 star camp.

Re: VOY S6: Collective

Not sure why this site cuts off the latter half of these posts but anyhoo...

On another note, I thought the actress that played the little girl borg nailed it when she says, "Your weapon won't work here..." (head tilt) "...dampening field."

That was CREEPY. I don't know why (cough cuz it's not DS9, cough cough) Jammer's picking on the guest actors in this one.

Re: VOY S6: Collective

... Seven clearly says that the cube is going to be destroyed. Just because they didn't have the budget to show the big 'splosion, doesn't mean it didn't happen. The dialogue makes it clear.

Re: VOY S6: Collective

I'm surprised at the number of comments regarding Janeway's failure to utilize the cube. Either the NetFlix version that I saw had some extra footage, or a lot of people here simply weren't paying attention.

Voyager is sending shockwaves back along the tractor beam. At first this just has the effect of weakening/lowering the cube's shields. But then one of the borg kids says that the latest shockwave has overloaded the (tech tech). At that point,
