Re: ENT S3: Harbinger

So, the alien’s nepharious plan was
Place me in a pod
Place the tiny pod in a huge bubble gum thing
Hope Enterprise notices needle in haystack
Assume Archer is stupid enough to pull the thing out (most solid part of the plan)
Hope Archer decides to disconnect alien from his weird pod
Wait for phasing to happen
Destroy enterprise.

Solid plan, Manny Coto.

Re: ENT S3: Similitude

Would you give your life to save your child’s life?

Most people would say yes.

Would you give up your (clone) life to save your own (original) life?
Would you give up your (original) life to save your own (clone) life?

Yes and yes.

No moral dilemma.

Re: ENT S3: North Star

So, 6,000 people have managed to form mining and manufacturing sectors that can produce guns and rifles, bullets, gunpowder, steel, chalk and blackboards, glass, etc. 6,000 people? Presumably from knowledge carried over from a few hundred kidnapped regular folks back on Earth 300 years ago?

These writers are dumb (freakin’ liberal arts majors) and this show is an insult to the intelligence of its viewers. At least make it somewhat plausible.

And their horses? Where did the earth horses come from? Skagarans stole humans and horses?

This season was looking so good, too.

Re: ENT S2: Bounty

I just skipped the embarrassing T’Pol/Phlox scenes. Made it a very watchable episode. We get it. T’pol is hot, and some Trek fans are awkward teenage boys who’ve never had sex before. You need to give them something. But this was horrible and very gratuitous. I feel really badly for the actress who plays T’Pol.

Re: ENT S2: Cogenitor

Trip is Enterprise’s horndog, and the whole episode can be understood as him trying to get with the 3rd gender ladyboy/David Bowie, but wanting to make sure it was grown-up enough to have sex with. Like a pedo grooming his target. Very creepy.

Archer’s rant to Trip was rich. He should record it and have it played back to himself after the end of each episode.

Re: ENT S2: Precious Cargo

Who knew the universal translator could do annoying accents.

In other episodes, the UT just gives regular accents to people. In this episode, somehow the UT picks up on how annoying the character is and gives her a super annoying accents.

I can only imagine the UT was giving Trip the same annoying accent for the alien woman to enjoy, because Trip was grating on my nerves too.

Re: ENT S2: A Night in Sickbay

I stopped watching as soon as Archer started getting all pissy about the aliens being offended by his dog pissing on their trees. Who brings a dog down on an away mission to aliens who were offended by public eating? And who gets all angry like this when the fault is clearly his.

Also, why is this dog not aging? He’s still a puppy after 1 year in space?

Also 2, sick of the objectification of T’Pol the actor and constant humiliation of T’Pol the character. No idea why she stays on a ship where everyone is always rude to her for being 100% right 100% of the time.

Re: ENT S2: The Communicator

Ugh. OK. Let’s assume the universal translator was perfect. Is there a universal mouth hologram device that makes their mouths and lips move in time with the words? So fucking stupid, it’s painful every time these idiots go on secret missions. “Oh, their mouths are moving out of sync with the words. Weird.”

Or, are we to believe they all learn these alien languages before going on their away missions? In which case, Hoshi’s talents aren’t really that special after all.

Dumb. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

Re: ENT S2: Shockwave, Part II

Another huge loose end in the episode: The last time we saw Hoshi before the Suliban left, she was guarding 2 unconscious Suliban. Did they happen to wake up just before all their friends left, or did Hoshi wake them up and tell them to get the F out. Why would they just leave peacefully? Silly episode.

Re: ENT S1: Detained

Stupid and self-righteous Archer makes up his mind about a complex situation in 2 seconds and decides to endanger the lives of all Suliban in all detention camps with a stupid escape attempt, while basically declaring war on a species they just met, instead of answering some simple questions to help the Tandarans fight their common enemies in the temporal cold war.

Also, when T’Pol and her fake-ass lips are in charge of the bridge and talking to the planet, why does everyone think they can shout from their chairs at the screen?

Re: DS9 S7: The Changing Face of Evil

Wtf are Bashir (a doctor) and Ezri (a counselor) doing on the bridge of a ship that's been sent to battle? Doc, get to the infirmary and wait for the casualties from the exploding panels that could be avoided with a few fuses and the falls that could be avoided with seatbelts. Counselor, stay at DS9 and deal with PTSD and Worf's feelings (can we please have 7 more episodes of Worf dealings with his feelings while being a complete jerk to everyone and acting like a possessive, emotionally controlling ex?)

Re: DS9 S7: Chimera

4 stars just for the scene where Laas kills the Klingon. Finally! Someone stands up to these xenophobic Klingon bullies. They pick drunken fights at the drop of a hat and then act all surprised when someone finally stands up to them.

And Worf, with his precious Miss Kronos Sash, acting all offended and taking the side of the Klingons. I can imagine him clutching his pearls: "Oh, My! How dare someone stands up to my species' bullying. How very dare they!"

There are no security cameras on the promenade or in the hold?

Plus, probably the first male gay scene in Star Trek or TV! Kudos.

The episode did start out iffy, though. Miles mentions Keiko in the first few minutes, and I was bracing myself for 45 minutes of putting up with her crap acting.

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

So...if Nog had headphones (or super sensitive hearing) or Jake had earplugs, none of this episode would have happened? Lazy writing.

Also, in the 24th century, people are still so racist that they 1) haven't intermarried enough to get rid of distnct races, and 2) pick dates and mates based on skin color, (but not species, apparently). Cowardly writing meant to avoid pearl- clutching conservatives that would balk at seeing the natural evolution of humans into a mixed race mutt or seeing people of different races in intimate relationships.

Re: DS9 S7: The Siege of AR-558

1. What is Quark doing there, other than acting as a one-man Greek chorus?

2. The characters are caricatures from war movies and the plot is ripped from the same. Heck, Nog even loses a leg!

Lt. "What are your orders, sir?"
Sisko: "We hold!!!!!!"
Lt. "No shit, moron. That's been our mission since before your pampered ass got here. I meant what are your specific orders for our immediate next steps?"

Re: DS9 S7: Chrysalis

So....Bashir is finally outed as a sexual predator who grooms/creates his victims.

Serena is essentially a 3-day-old child (based on her experience of the world) who wants to be the woman Bashir wants her to be. As noted above: Gross.

Once she does manage to get back into her cocoon (probably to escape being molested by Bashir), he jumps right back in trying to build her back up again as his perfect pedo bride.

Also, WTF is up with the character of the sexed up mutant? She's smart, socially aware, and...her mutation just made her slutty? Oh, the horror! A sexually assertive smart lady. Reason enough to lock her up with Wilford Brimley, autistic Ethan Hawke, and Echo's mute kid sister!

Finally, when will Bashir and O'Brien finally get it on?

Re: DS9 S7: Take Me Out to the Holosuite

I've come to terms with the writers' delusion that a boring-ass game like baseball would have survived into the 24th century, because 1) it's the least of their idiocies and 2) they've always hinted that it's really not that popular.

This episode takes it to the next level.

First, to expect anyone other than a fringe of humans wasting hours on a game where nothing happens for hours is one thing (I mean look at soccer and Cricket), because you can attribute it to cultural baggage from back in the days when there was nothing more interesting to do than sit through 9 innings. But, to expect logical vulcans to do this is just beyond the pale.

Second, in the middle of the war, Sisko ties up his crew in training for a meaningless game? Seems like a great time for a Dominion attack!

Third, Sisko sells the game as something that requires courage and sacrifice. WTF? Courage in the face of a speeding ball, I guess. And sacrifice? Sacrificing your duties in the middle of a war to the altar of your captain's hurt ego?

Re: DS9 S7: Afterimage

How is Worf still in star fleet? No consequences for his assaulting a fellow officer?

Screw him, his stupid sash, and his fragile little emotions. Everyone walks on eggshells around that dude.

And Ezri's comment to Bashir. Really? If an emotionally abusive, possessive 'roided up a-hole hadn't come along, it would have been Bashir? Like she only had two options in her life (three if you count Quark)? Plus, there were plenty of Klingons and Jem Hadar befor she'd ever get to Bashir. She had a type, and it wasn't Bashir.

Crewman: Lisa Cusak
Sisko: Let's look her up and confirm her identity before we 1) delay our mission by 12 days running after her, and 2) telling her all our personal and military secrets
Crewman [2 seconds later]: Wikipedia says she died years ago when her ship went missing.

Re: DS9 S6: Time's Orphan

The whole A-plot was an insulting waste of time. In the end, the 18-year-old Molly and her PTSD never had a chance to exist, which is the exact same thing that would have happened if they had just recalibrated and tried again in the beginning.

Also, recall that O'Brien and many on the crew had zero issues with **thousands** of people not getting a chance to exist in Children of Time. That is, until O'Brien saw a curly-haired redhead like himself and changed his mind.

The "all women get baby fever when they see a baby" thing was offensive.

Worf was surprisingly likable here. Keiko for once didn't grate on my nerves. Molly was her annoying self as a child, and now we know, as an adult too. Leave them both in the past, and send in Yoshi and Keiko too.

Re: DS9 S6: Valiant

It's perfectly normal to send an ensign and his best friend to deliver a high-level diplomatic message from the leaders of the Federation to the Nagus. In the middle of a war. Without backup.

Also, Jake-o has grown up to be quite the A-hole. No wonder his dad seemed to have resigned himself to letting the prophets kill him in the last episode.

Re: DS9 S6: In the Pale Moonlight

Yay!!! A script written to allow Brooks to showcase his "acting:"
1. Emphasize every syl-la-ble in random and unexpected ways
2. Randomly quiver your voice to simulate the hu-man emotions of "sadness" and "anger"
3. Make sure your eyes never match the emotion you're trying to convey with your mouth.
4. End your sentences like you're holding back ejaculation.
5. Repeat.

Garak shines as always.

Re: DS9 S6: Change of Heart

Never bought the Dax-Worf relationship. It always seemed a bit abusive to me and I never saw what they saw in each other. This episode tried to make it seem like they were a regular couple, but it failed. There is no chemistry. It all seems forced.

Jadzia's moaning and whining while she was wounded made me wish she'd just die already.

And Worf's dereliction of duty and dredging up of yet another made-up Klingon tradition/song/tale in defense was idiotic.
