Re: DS9 S3: Distant Voices

This ep makes want to bawl like a baby. I absolutely hurt for Bashir and I want to pull him out of the coma myself. He becomes old, old and crawling for his life and I hurt even more for him.

That horrible alien is just so ugly I have hard time looking at him. And to mention that the mold makers can really numbers around the mouths, esp. the one where there is VERTICAL STRIP OVER THE MOUTH!!!!!.......how do these guys eat? Probably don't.

Everyone makes comments and I agree with Jammer's so I don't see a reason for me to say all the same things over and over. I watch any program for entertainment value and to learn. There are so many things in the Star Trek universe to learn from and then go get a book and study them.

Re: DS9 S3: Visionary

I find VISIONARY very difficult to understand. If any of you guys are fans of FARSCAPE you will know Crichton was struck by a 'piece' of a singularity in an alien ship and he travelled BACK AND BACK AND BACK TO THE FUTURE for the entire ep. A person connected with this series once made a comment that Star Trek had a similiar episode. Pardon me, Visionary is nowhere like Farscpe's story. It was done in Australia by Australian writers and you could not ask for better writing. >>>>>> Paramount writers always have to make their stories difficult and as unsmooth as they can.

It has been about 2 years since my cable people have put H and I on their schedule and all 5 of the Star Trek series run every night. ST:Tos is only one of the 5 I had seen on a regular basis, etc. DS9 AND VOYAGER I had not seen for 10 years or more since they were not run in my area. I would buy DS9 if wasn't so darned expensive. Voyager, well I only like about 10 of the eps and I love the Borg eps esp. with Jeri Ryan. She is a wonderful actress. Too add on, I finally gave in and bought the dvd pkgs of TOS BUT I have a few of TOS on VHS from the past. They were so expensive I could not afford them. I did spend over $30.00 buying THE CAGE.
HERE IS WHAT I GOT:::::some color and a bunch of black and white where the whoever it was picked up the pieces and glued them to the damn film strip.......some parts have no speech at all because the speaking parts were snipped out and thrown away back in the day [1960's]. Of course, back in day those people had no idea that Star Trek would go on living thru the years.

Anyway, I think that Sisko should have shot the Romulons out of 'sky' and stars once the Romulons took off from the station. They were nasty to everyone. Yeah, they should go thru the worm hole and look up the changelings!!

I did not like it that Miies had to die and be replaced with a future O'Brien. Best to leave that alone because Keiko and Molly would never understand. No one would understand.

Re: TOS S3: Turnabout Intruder

This ep is awful. It proves how little men thought of women.
They believed women were only good for one thing. Hence, the revealing outfits, only the big busted girls were hired, and they had to show what they had.

As a rule, females did not run around with everything hanging out, the boys wanted to look up skirts and such filth, not like today. We had to be clean and protect ourselves or be branded. There was free sex as it was called, but it was not advertised.

You people don't understand the past. Women were treated as inferior dumb clucks. The male animal believed that a woman should be IN THE KITCHEN, BAREFOOT, AND PREGNANT their entire lives. I was there. However, I was not one of the gooses that laid around and obeyed sexist males!!!!!!! Screw them all!!

I still think that way and I am 76 years old. I don't need men.

Roddenberry was a womanizer with that old-fashioned kick a female around but when he got Majel in his hooks, she did not unhook and slip into the darkness of a liquor bottle. She stayed because in those days, you F..K me, you marry me. It was not like today. In those days the girl did not suck off the boys cause "it ain't sex, you slut".

Shatner's first wife divorced him due his not keeping it in his pants and he was zokcd;xx@((( a young dancer at the studio. In his first book he stated that he did not want the divorce. I can't remember the Scotty actor's name off hand, but on one of discs in the TOS eps he discusses Shatner, and he says......."he is not a nice man...". The entire main cast felt that way because I listened to many interviews with them while Shatner was discussed during the Star Trek cast interviews.

Re: DS9 S5: The Assignment

POINTLESS!!!!!!!! A pah-wraith grabs Keiko .... so why didn't one grab Kai Winn in the last ep of series??????

It is no wonder that Keiko got grabbed, she is a hateful character and she was the same way in TNG. Rosalind plays the "bitch" very well. I always feel sorry for O'Brien because he should not married Keiko as they are not suited for each other. I guess he likes misery and being shamed in public.

Poor Rom. I cringe every time he is on because he is abused so badly. I'll never understand why those sh*t writers wrote him to be the "oh yeah, come stomp my face off" type......

I would hate to be an actress and the only job I could qualify for would be Keiko and Rom where I would be the fool of the night broadcast.

The first time I saw Max G. he was a magical character that turned into a bird and flew away in SLIDERS.

Re: TNG S1: Code of Honor

This is another sorry ep. If I had been the lady-scorned, I'd have sent Lutan to the slave market in order to teach his big, fat self a lesson in loyalty!!

I found this piece of crap to be insulting to both white and black people.

Speaking of Yar, the way she treated so far in the series of TNG, could have been the reason she wanted out of the damn thing and place. Denise was probably treated badly on the set and around the studio. Of course, Sirtis could have done any number of things to be ugly to the Yar character as she had been invited by Majel Roddenberry to live with them since she was in the USA all alone and broke by the time she landed the role of Troi. It is very easy to spot how people are treated by watching the expressions whoever they have to play off in scenes. Try it if you don't believe me. As a matter of fact, I never liked Sirtis, she is not a good actress and until a couple of years I could not figure out her heritage.....she is Greek. But she doesn't actually look Greek. She is probably Jewish-Greek which is what you HAVE to be in Hollywood if you want to be an actor.

Take that as racist if you want to but you will be making mistake to think that way because the truth is the truth.

Re: TNG S1: The Naked Now

I Hate this ep! Not one actor was up to par in their acting in this ridiculous story. Drunk people do not act like these actors who were all trying to act drunk. Can you imagine having sex with a robot? Data probably weighs two thousands pounds at that and I think in some ep they tell his weight along with other details.

I just read a tidbit about the Yar character yesterday and there was a person who did not know why Denise left the series. She and Roddenberry both said she wanted to do movies. She was offered a part and took it in PET SEMETARY and she did a few more movies that were forgettable. She made the rounds on various t.v. shows and so on. But when she was on talk shows she would always tell how she was the illegitimate daughter of one of Bing Crosby's sons of which I no longer recall his name. That sort of thing could ruin a person as far as the Hollywood crowd goes. Shove it down the throats of those who don't like you. Gene R himself sheepishly said he wished he had not let her go and he said the same thing about Grace Lee Whitney who by the way died in 2015.

Let me add this piece: In the same area where I found the above (Yar) I also found this about Jennifer Lien (Kes)....someone in the know said that Jerry Taylor who is the mother of Alexander Enberg (Vorik) approached Jennifer to date her son (Enberg) and Jennifer would not do it. That took place just before her final ep, the Gift. >> And Enberg, in his early forties, had a stroke and was in a coma for a short while.

Back to NAKED NOW. TOS'S Scotty actor did not like this episode either. He said how he and others figured TNG would not make it and guess what(?)... way down the line he appears on the show and has to be "beaten" up mentally by Geordi LaForge! That makes me angry enough to bite nails in half every time I watch it. For a long while I hated Geordi. He was very overblown egotistically and it showed.

Re: TOS S2: Amok Time

Spock got over his Pon Farr because he cares about Kirk whether he states it or not. I say the shock of seeing your captain and best friend dead in your hand would shock any guy ready to fornicate, ask any guy what happens if he gets scared.

The lovely Arlene Martell / T'Pring also starred in the 1960's Outer Limits: Demon With A Glass Hand.

Spock should have tried to be kinder to Nurse Chapel and she did confess to him that she loved him in The Naked Time and Plato's Stepchildren.

Re: DS9 S1: In the Hands of the Prophets

I HATE THIS EPISODE AND I WANT TO SEE WINN DEAD BEFORE DUKAT HELPS HER INTO THE PAGH WRAITHS FIRES. She is as religious a t__d! Excuse me!!

The Prophets know she is insincere, that is why they never speak to her. She offers nothing to or for Bajor's growth in freedom of the snake people. Yeah, the Cardies look like snakes.

Keiko is teaching children facts that they can live by when they grow up only I fail see the Bajoran ever being anything but idiots believing only what people like Winn tell them. Only fools would try to teach about the Prophets [who are liars and don't really care about the Bajorans. They don't know who the Bajorans are anyway. These people just gained freedom from the Cardies and they can't have much of direction just like the Germans after WW2. Our people went over there and helped rebuild Germany. When I was in the third grade a family who had spent time in Germany because they were military moved to the town and the girl was in my class had pix of bombed Germany. Remember I was in the third grade, I thought to myself why would our Americans go help people who wanted us all dead. I had to find answers as I grew up. They had a tough time but remember for always, they believed the words of Hitler that was not even German but Austrian. They paid. Anyway, Bajorans are just ignorant. God does not help those who can't understand but blindly follow the Winn's of this world because the followers can't help themselves.

I don't understand why the Federation did not interfere in this fiasco because they claim to have an interest in Bajor and its people. This damn bitch Winn got away with murder and forcing stupid little girls to kill people on both side and the ninny says she is doing it for the Prophets. That is a bald faced lie because they never command anyone to kill.

I LOVED IT AND LAUGHED AND LAUGHED WHEN DUKAT GOT UNDER HER KAFTAN. I CHEERED WHEN DUKAT THREW HE INTO THE FIRE. HALLELUJAH! BUT, the murdering of Sisko was really uncalled for. He was burned to death. The writers should have been killed visciously!!

Re: DS9 S1: Babel

The above comment is from me, I changed my name from Betty to Cinnamon and I am going to add some more.......

I am certain the people who wrote these comments long ago never come back to see what is new but that TB could be at an age now that memory loss is hitting him [or her] and I hope that person feels the brunt that comes with aging. When I was a child, I was taught now to make fun of people who were sick. I never have.

Speaking of past captains, Patrick Stewart is my pick. He is English and as it goes very well versed in his chosen craft. He was all business as Picard, all military, never talked down to his people or made the women sleep with him, he listened. He solved the problems and at the same time heard what others had to say.

Why did the viewers love Shatner so much. He was Canadian along with Scotty, They are like the English, they learn the craft and they project, they don't slur, ever. The U.S. was not use to acting on their levels that is why they were loved and praised.

I found this ep so nerve grinding and kept praying no one died.
And Colm Meany as O'Brien, he really is a true Irishman and he knows and uses his craft well. I have always felt so sorry for Miles because after he married Keiko and they went to DS 9 she became a nasty shrew. Why did the writers have to write her this way? She could be pretty fault finding on Tng but not as mean. Rosalind is wonderful actress and she did pull it off.



In another life I could myself hopping into a ship and kidnapping
a sorry dissadent [spelling]. No time for dictionaries. I also wonder just how two men on Bajor could hide out long enough to create such a virus. I don't blame them, but after all, it is Nazi's killing Jews ....... understand? Babylon 5 was mentioned...it's another Nazi/Jewish story. Who writes these stories?, Do you know? I do, but you the reader need to research for the answer.

So it is said, well I guess he must have died or got caught before he could activate device. Guess he did, makes sense.

Forget anybody's acting ability, the reason Brooks was the boss of DS 9 is because the height of get more blacks on t.v. in responsible jobs or else. He had a t.v. program of his own in case any one wonders. Look that up.

This Bashir bashing is wrong. Sid/Alexander... is an English actor; therefore he is learned. His mother is the sister of a [white] Scottish lady who has a world famous brother who helped Sid get into acting.

This ep had nothing to do with THE NAKED TIME they were all drunk AS they were in the stupid NAKED NOW. And Masks, nothing to with Babel. The people Data talks for are all long dead. The chasing is the Sun and the Moon. I love that episode
as well as The Naked TIme where I sympathize for those poor souls. all for now

Re: DS9 S4: Body Parts

First off, I HATE BRUNT'S GUTS!!!!!!! If I was a Ferengi I get him up on the Tower of Commerce, kick him as hard as I could and push him off, hope he is dead when he hits______and then I'd blame the Nagus because he is greedy, stupid jerk!!!!!!

In spite of critics hatred for the Ferengi, I like these stories. The only one from TNG was when the crew became children and outwitted the trolls.

At the end it was nice to see the DS9 personnel help out Quark after all they have been against him.

Nana's baby. I did not understand why this ep was written until T V GUIDE, the old, 4x5 sized one wrote an interview with Nana. She and El Siddig (Bashir) had been an item, hot and heavy for a very long time. She went gaga over him from the moment they met. I will probably mess it up for you all but it wasn't nice. She had a husband and the way things went the husband in my opinion was made a damn fool of by his own friends so the two of them could be together behind his back. That was in T V Guide. Nana is Jewish and Siddig, whom everyone called Sid, is Muslim.

So they do have their baby, they marry, but the bad part is that once DS9 is over, Hollywood will never allow him to be in their movies and such. The things that they control. Same with actors who are pure English, Scottish, etc., will never be given a job. Pour over Harvey Weinstein's lies about the young ladies he ruined as horrors. I wouldn't lose my soul over filthy sex with that horror or any other horror. If I resorted to murdering him, ok, when I died, whoever I had to stand in front of told me I was guilty. I'd tell him he was even guiltier because he allowed it to happen and did nothing. People think the god in the bible is noble, but he was everyone's nightmare as he wanted Earth as his own empire since he could never go back home and maybe take over from his father. And, they were not gods, they were homo sapiens.

As for B'Lanna, if her pregnancy had been noted on the show, people in the viewing world would have protested that the show was putting whoredom on
to make their kids wayward. Grow up and pay attention because the world is filled with brainless, uneducated things. Oh oh oh and worse for Crusher, she would have been doing every man on that ship...women in certain parts of your towns and cities are browbeaten to believe these kinds of malarky.

Re: DS9 S4: The Quickening

Never once have I seen Bashir as arrogant but Jadzia Dax from season 1 thru season 6 was so arrogant it would make a person eat nails. It is that "worm" thing inside a young woman now and it wants to keep carrying on the way it did in Curzon. Gettin' drunk as a dog - eventho' there are no dogs in that area of the universe - having illicit sex with a wife while her man is fightin' a visious war - playing tongo with Ferengi and gettin' drunk and laffin' it up - head-banging with a bunch of Kingon's - kickin' young men like Sisko in the butt and teachin' 'em 'bout life! Curzon was garbage! We only know him by what people tell us, tho'.

I never disliked the Jadzia character, but just that hard balled no-eyed thing in a live body as well as the TNG ep where it took over Beverly Crusher... It is nasty to think that a culture would pick up those things and put them in their bodies in the belief that their intellect would be increased.

Since Starfleet will now know what the Founders are all about, they should have taken that disease and made a huge vat of it; located the Founders in the goo caramel/butterscotch pudding state and poured it all over them. Let them die early on and there would not have been a war. I detest the creep that wrote destroy Earth, this is the only home us humans is got and if in reality aliens wanted us dead, we'd be dead. If Yahweh, before he was called Yahweh, had had his way human beings would never had been cloned in a lab in the subafrican lab. However, blah, blah, blah, he did his best kill all the earthlings........

Oh, yeah, pick on Bashir because he would turn Bariel into a g. d. robot. That is what he would have been and where would his and Kira's kove be then? Hmmmm? People, get real. This is not realism it is fantasy!!!!!!! Get with it.

As far as get a new doctor 'cause Bashir is away? They would have tons of doctor's on a station like DS9 just as they did on TOS and TNG and very unlike the dopes that set up Voyager on a trip into fires of hell Badlands, got it yet?, no doubt there would be Bajorean medical teams; there is a Bajorean nurse by Bashir's side.

Re: TOS S1: The Devil in the Dark

Answers: it was an actor/monster creator crawling around on the floor.

In the 60's bricklayers were prominent among construction (I lived back then as a young 20 something) stonemasons went out with the 1200's.

The Horta's eggs had no substance in them. They were clean.

Something nice: during the cave scene with Kirk and Spock. Shatner received word that his father had died in Florida. The immediate response was to close down the set and let him leave. Shatner said no, I cannot do anything for him (now) I'll finish the day and then leave. That is what took place. So Spock is paining all over the place in days to come without Kirk nearby.

Females only counted for sex in the 60's, the Horta had no need for them. 'Course the miners would have thought different. Back then a female could be kicked in the ass for refusing a "big" man his comfort of her stuff. Even women believed that if they did not put out when demanded of them that they would be ostracized out of a job and they could. It was not a good time to live in. The law would kick your ass in a minute unless your family WUZ Masons and all THEM other wunnaful organizations in yo' town.

People, if you have qualms about the writing on this series, look up the writers and you see why they wrote the way they did. There is no intelligence involved in these scripts. Once you SEE who these men were you will the bias crap. Much of the times I just get mad a hell at the series.The majority of the writers were late 50 years old and in their 60's. No one was 18 or 20 or even 30. No one was educated further than elementary school. If someone went to college that person still held onto the idea of their parents and grandparents.

AND wonderful Starfleet! Not the Federation, that is dozens of planets....Earth people, human beings are sent into the realms of deep, dark space with no weapons (those miners and such and it follows thru with all the Star Trek stories etc ) no preparation for what they will run into------no sense at all, they just go at everything and everybody they meet with "I'll bust you up if you mess with me attitude.

Earthling's will never be capable of doing any better than they are doing in 2018 because humans are a product of the God's responsible for creating them. Read the King James bible until you can get around all the 1600's and 1700's thee and thou's language. No God ever spoke that way. Then read Zechariah Sitchin's books and you find out why human being's are what they are.

Now, the actress who played Pulaski was in every episode of every nightly program in the 1960's and 1970's. Then she was in 2 TOS eps. By the way, there were only three t.v. channels back then.

Re: VOY S3: Warlord

Really did like this ep. Jennifer Lien gave a great performance. Do any of you know how she found out she was FIRED? On the net years ago at that time ---- the show went on hiatus and The Gift had not been shown [yet]. The people, whoever they were, maybe writers, were at a convention of sorts and told the audience that Voyager would be back [after the hiatus] with a lot of new stuff ---- and that Jennifer Lien was out. She was shocked that they did this to her in the way that they did. Maybe somewhere on the internet a person might be able to find all that info and catch up.

I thought it was really dirty of them. And I try to NOT sit watching and thinking how dumb the actor/character might be, that is not fair if one is watching for entertainment and one is a lover of the series. As for Neelix, the moment I saw him all those years ago, all I could think of was that he looked like a FISH. Remember the TNG ep. with the 2 ambassadors[?] in comas who were actually assassins? They were fish. Mrs. L. Troi read their minds and exposed them.

Lordy, oh lord .......I wish I had thought of the Jar-Jar identity for Neelix. That is so funny. Oh, and Kim-can't-get-a-lock.......and he is so mopey about wanting a girl, I just watched FAVORITE SON, but he did not come off as watering at the mouth over those women, he should take a few pages from Tom's "play" book on how to get a woman. In ALTER EGO he was in love with a holodeck character and talked it over with Tuvok. Then he exploded at Tuvok when he and Arana were together. He had
no idea what was going on but he was really burned because Tuvok stole his girl.

Re: ENT S3: Harbinger

This was a stupid ep. People [fans] had probably been writing to the studio to beg for Trip and T'Pol to get together. I personally prefer that sex not be a part of what I am watching on t.v. or a movie. Those who have to see it happen, no doubt, do not ever get lucky in sex.

Now, I must say this in all truth about the characters: The best of the lot are the actors who play Hoshi, T'Pol, Dr. Phlox, and Travis. Their characters never engage in whackiness that I have seen.

All the other main actors are just ridiculous. ARCHER should be court marshalled in every episode!!!!!!!!! I am sorry but I don't like this actor and that goes back to the time when he played that scientist who got lost in some kind of vortex[?] and appeared in some town where he was knocked around [every episode] so he could learn what it like to be in THE OTHER GUYS SHOES!

What happened to the Reed actor? He was a good actor but here it seeeeeeeeeems like he is not up to snuff. I do know that he does not have good lines, actually, no dialog at all.

Trip carries on like a snotty nosed southern boy always cutting into everyone he has a scene with.

The weekly drop in actors I have no problem with. However, when crap happens it is because the suits in charge and some of the writers, some of the actors are causing trouble. This happened on Voyager.

And that dumb alien. Star Trek does have dumb aliens but Enterrpise is the worse for it. I hated the Sulibans. I hated the Xindi's and way back, that Raiijin thing who could copy people
x-ray style. That shattered alien in the soup did know why he was buried in that soup. It was to see how long he would live out there.

I don't watch season 4 unless there is nothing else on.

Think on this, if Earth was blasted to bits, this solar system would go out of whack. There is such a thing as balance...without it the planets would not be in orbits but spinning out of control throughout the universe.

Re: TOS S2: The Gamesters of Triskelion

Doc McCoy is at again screaming and blaming Spock for the team disappearing. McCoy should have been placed in charge of driving the Enterprise and shouting out orders. The ship would have been lost in space for sure just the way it was when the desk bureaucrats mutinied and took over.

The actress who played Shana was a newly married young woman when she got this role and Shatner had chased her around the studio for sex and when he she did not lay down he spent the rest of his life telling ... and writing in his books ... how sorry she was as an actress and making fun of her. This was verified in Nichelle Nichols book also.

Sex on the lot was why Roddenberry was kicked off the show though it was his creation and Gene Coon was given the reins.

Now this episode makes me really mad not just because of McCoy's antics but the way Kirk was all over Shana. In those days women really were a lesser person. That is the reason the men sneered at them not only on this show but everything on television in the 1960's and worse in the 1970's. I was a child in the 1950's so.......and I do not watch reruns of that era even though they are being run now in 2018.

Even in the 1960's in real life it would not have been done, nor would it be done today. >> I would never in the past nor now, give this episode anything but ten zeroes. AND, worse yet, the bridge crew did not have any idea how to solve their problem
because they stand there and let a prehistoric alien tell them what to do.

Re: TNG S4: Data's Day

The Romulon's were reallllllly good in tricking Picard into thinking he was responsible for a death by transporter. THIS ONE IS ANOTHER ONE THAT MAKES SO DARN MAD!!!!!!! What are the Romulon's always doing in the Neutral Zone anyway? Hey! Looking for a fight with the Federation and trying to kill humans.

This ep is one that proves Miles and Keiko should never have married. If I had been carry on the way she did, I NEVER would gotten married EVER.

And Data writing to that god awful Maddox that wanted to pull him apart in THE MEASURE OF A MAN.......well, Data will never understand how to be human because he can't run from danger.
