Re: ENT S2: A Night in Sickbay

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but you seem to hate dogs, Jammer. What's the matter? Don't like pets? You scare me to a severe degree: If you had a loved one would you feel ANYTHING when they died or were in danger? Granted, it's a dog, but as anyone with pets knows you grow VERY attached to them and Archer's attitude, while hostile and WAAAAAAY out of line to the point of blatant silliness, still had basis in merit; it was just poorly executed. Maybe YOU possess more cold, calm, cool, uncaring, indifferent Vulan unemotion than you'd care to admit, Big J.

Re: ENT S1: Acquisition

I literally SCREAMED in frustration at the end of this episode. I wanted to destroy my TV set for showing me such filth but of course it had done me no wrong, it was this abomination of an episode that had. And Brannon's comment? FUCK!!!! Is he being deliberately condescending? GOD-BUTTFUCK if they were GOING to do Ferengi they could have done it BETTER, even compared to DS9 standards. I think the writers secretly get a huge thrill out of Ferengi humor so they shove it upon us blindly hoping WE will get find it funny, and if we don't we will eventually get it, but if not then tough shit. This piece of crap deserves NO STARS.

Re: ENT S1: Dear Doctor

I have but just one question to contribute to this debate: What would Archer do were the situations REVERSED? i.e. Humankind has contracted a deadly disease, asked for help from an outside source, and was subsequently turned down for the same reasons? Does anyone honestly believe that Starfleet would permit such a thing because it's "the natural order of things"? Hell, they were willing to trick the Romulans into war, assassinate a chancellor to protect their fleets, and abet in the genocide of the Founders.

(To those last two posts there will be people who would undoubtedly claim that the Federation wasn't truly aware of any of it happening, but once they found out there as hell wasn't any consequences. They refused to give the cure to the Founders and Worf got off scot-free; not even a reprimand on his record like when he killed Duras. Why? Because they conveniently "needed" the Klingons to help defend themselves. How very interesting...)

NOW I know how they came up with the Prime Directive: Archer and Phlox's genocide covered up by "the moral high road". Thank God they fine-tuned it over the centuries. The Valakians were PEOPLE: They were allowing men, women, even CHILDREN to die as a race. Innocent beings who had done them no harm and were only guilty of conscripting a "genetic disease," whatever the hell THAT is. I'm more than convinced that the main reason Archer came to this ambiguous decision is in part because he wanted the Menk to be free. But Kirk himself said it: "Freedom isn't a gift, it has to be earned."

It's like this: If you saw someone holding a gun to somebody in a back alley and you had a gun to shoot THEM (unlikely, but just hear me out) would you in all good faith (if you were moral like Archer and Phlox claim to be?) not shoot that individual to save the other? Even if you just limited yourself to wounding and not killing? Chrstina highlighted a lot of points I think are pertinent but alas, some will like this, some will hate it. Different views, different opinions.....

Re: ENT S1: Cold Front

What is WRONG with you people???!! Jesus Christ it's a science-fiction story, a gripping and a sometimes pondering one at that, but still a STORY! Not real. So why do you all hate time travel so much? I can see why when it's not done correctly, but like I said, IT'S ONLY A FICTIONAL STORY.

@davidw: It might not be ncessary but I still liked it. Why didn't you?

Of minor note is the way T'Pol completely disregared Daniels's claims. I can sort of understand why she did it, but it seemed like she was refusing to even consider that it might, somehow (gasp!) be TRUE. That is narrow-minded and she's only saying that because she doesn't want it to be true. Way to drop the ball there, T'Pol. *shakes head*

Re: Star Trek: Nemesis

I think the producers thought along these lines when making Nemesis:

"Let's see... which alien race HAVEN'T we used in a movie? The Undiscovered Country was the Klingons, First Contact was the Borg, and the last one was the Son'a and the Ba'ku (NOTE: They SHOULD have used the Dominion! It would have been more impressive than two races whom we never met prior to this...).... the Romulans! We haven't used them in a while! Only this time let's put them back into their pre-war status!"

Christina..... you hit the nail on the head. BTW, I didn't like the Troi rape scene either. I could have *tolerated* it if it had actually had a PURPOSE and had LASTING EFFECTS. Instead there's no reasoning behind it and Troi recovers within minutes. But hey, SHE'S THE COUNSELOR!!! *dramatic fanfare*

I think 2.5. stars is a GENEROUS application for this stinker, one this eyesore doesn't deserve. But oh well...

Re: Star Trek (2009)

It seems to me like you're one of those people who go around trying their hardest to look at the positive side of everything, going to do something with an optimistic outlook. I'm the opposite: I'm cynical by nature, and I guess it shows. I think people like that look for the best and will make more concessions with things than someone like me would. I however confess to placing EXTREME HIGH standards on practically everything. This is just the symptom of that!

Re: TOS S2: By Any Other Name

I really hated BY ANY OTHER NAME and I swear...... Roddenberry doesn't care about justice when he sees a future world, he cares only about "letting things go" to the point where murder, rape, torture are forgotten within seconds all because the other person is SORRY. But in BAON we don't get that. The Kelvans are not sorry, and they do NOT GET ANY PUNISHMENT FOR THEIR CRIME. Someday, I WILL make them pay for not making them pay in the series. I will make the CREATORS PAY......... WOMEN-KILLERS!!!!!!!

Re: The Matrix Revolutions

I always thought it took too long for Neo to realize it was Smith as well. Seriously, who ELSE calls him "Mr. Anderson??"!! But of course this might be common knowledge in Zion... Maybe people are even swarming him with the word! "I love you, Mr. Anderson!" "Watch over us, Mr. Anderson!" "Save us, Mr. Anderson!" :D As to your idea of the Real World being the Matrix again.... well you weren't writing these series were you? :P It might have been an interesting concept, definitely, but I'm sure the writers felt it might have been too redundant or that the fans would riot or something and left it out. Or not. But didn't you see what happened when Neo became Neo/Smith? In the Real World the machine creature zapped Neo that caused Smith to die. I suppose it might be some kind of anti-virus program, but the question is WHY they didn't do that sooner with the countless million slaves hooked up the Matrix?! Got any thoughts on that, Jammer?

Re: DS9 S2: The Jem'Hadar

charlie - The Dominion would have invaded anyway. All they wanted to do was control -- the Founders just as much admitted, "What you control can't hurt you" and that they wanted to bring "order" to the galaxy. Though I do agree about the wormhole comment -- they tried to close it in The Search Part II but when they found out about the Founders it was like they forgot! What the hell! Granted, no Dominion means no storyline, but practically speaking the Federation (no matter how "peace-loving" they are) should have REALIZED the Dominion was a serious threat on a massive level the AQ hadn't seen before, sealed up the wormhole despite the Bajorans' protests, and prepared for the inevitable confrontation: Building fleets of starships, training troops, equipping armies essentially. Pacifist idiots.

Re: Star Trek (2009)

BTW, if that's true then it should die. Being "rebooted" to something completely different is not a good way of solving a problem -- it's taking the easy way out. I agree some things SHOULD change, but others have to either stay the same or die. It's the natural process of the world. But I can practically feel the bias in your voice. You liked it, so nothing I can say matters. I will rally around the others who didn't like it.

Re: Star Trek (2009)

Well, I've always liked the Dominion and the Borg more than the old-class Star Trek. I really want to see them involved as they SHOULD be. My worst fear is they will just forget about them. They both ARE out there. As to why I don't like this? The styles are all wrong. I watched the early Star Treks, TNG, DS9 Voyager, and they all had the same type of styles, if different in many ways. Enterprise, and now ST 2009, have missed that.

Re: DS9 S7: Strange Bedfellows

I thought it was very pretentious of O'Brien to lecture Bashir. Seriously, WHAT THE HELL?? This was completely random. And what, does he honestly think Bashir will do ANYTHING, unintentional or not, to hurt Ezri? Good Jesus. I would have told him to go fuck yourself. Too bad too, cuz O'Brien was one of my favorite characters. Emphasis on "was."

Re: VOY S7: Repentance

I wholeheartedly support the death sentence. So what? It's revenge? Big deal! It's more than the countless rapists, murderers, child abusers, and many more across America and the world deserve. To me though the crime has to be of great magnitude, not something piddly like theft or whatever. Fuck society when someone has intruded upon your home and done something wrong -- they've hurt YOU, not society. Society is a generic term -- we are millions, BILLIONS of families and units that make up the larger whole. Seriously, you scare me, Jammer. It's unnatural. Are you saying if someone, for example, came to your parents' home and murdered your family, robbed the place, and raped the female members, you wouldn't want to see them FRIED?? Sad. Jail is nothing more than sitting around. I GUARANTEE YOU, HALF the inmates in jail are CACKLING because they've done great wrong and are now punished only by staying someplace for life. Bah. But I suppose it can't be helped. I tend to take a more cynical and harsh view of the human race. I'm not naive. I see the truth: We're doomed, we've been doomed since the first moment we thought as a sentient race.

One extra addendum: I don't think they'll even use them at some point because they're too obsessed with Khan. I liked him too and the impact the TOS movies and especially the Khan Arc had on me, but seriously it's the 24th Century GET WITH THE PROGRAM. *big ROLLS EYES*

Re: Star Trek (2009)

The whole idea of this film made me furious. Seriously, I hope Abrahms isn't planning to use this as an excuse to "restart the clock" as it were, i.e. the Borg meetings, peace with the Klingons, even the Dominion War, never happened because the future is DIFFERENT. Someone said this takes place in a different reality -- I hope that's true because I shudder to think what will happen if in the new "altered timeline" version they try to use the Dominion or the Borg -- two major villains that got you thinking and pondered significant questions about Human nature. I pray for Star Trek, I really do. But alas, I fear my hopes will be in vain. I give this no stars for a failed effort.

Re: DS9 S5: For the Uniform

To all of the above comments, I personally hated the Maquis. I liked them at first; they had an interesting concept. But then, under Eddington's dictatorship they become nothing more than racists. I was not glad the Jem'Hadar killed them all -- I was GLEEFUL. I was overjoyed. You reap what you sow, and Sisko's right: By contributing to the problems Cardassia faced, you had a direct hand in leading them to the Dominion and killing YOU. Sisko never said truer word. "End of Story." GO TO HELL EDDINGTON!

Re: DS9 S5: The Begotten

I personally didn't like Dr. Mora. It seems like all he did on the show was try to run more tests on Odo -- all he wanted was to study him again. I didn't like that. Anyone want to comment on this?

And do you, Jammer, really have to look for deeper meanings in Odo's life as a Solid? Does he really have to have a meaningful reason to become a Solid? His people punished him in a way they saw fit. It's like Freud said: "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."

Get over it. :P

Re: DS9 S3: Past Tense, Part I

Truly scary, because you can honestly see something like that happening in America today. And seriously, if real-life "Sanctuary Districts" started popping up over the U.S., even if people knew their true extent, I doubt they'd bat an eyelash. They'd be so caught up in their own petty problems that they wouldn't do anything. This is some pretty powerful stuff.

Hey, you didn't comment on Sisko's fight with the Klingons! What, didn't like it? I thought it was perfect. Seeing Sisko give a full punch to the Klingon boasting about killing his friend with an excuse of "getting more bloodwine" is too good to pass up in a review!

Re: DS9 S3: The Die Is Cast

I liked this episode greatly, though in terms of visual effects I thought The Way of the Warrior was better and always will be -- not even Call to Arms or Sacrifice of Angels or What You Leave Behind measured.

The torture scene was very intense I agree but at the end of the episode I found myself thinking one thing -- I wish Kira had found out! Seriously, she would have killed Garak.
