Re: VOY S7: Shattered

When Janeway noted at the end that she knew where Chakotay hid the wine in the cargo bay, was she implying that her memories were intact?

If you recall it was something mentioned by future Icheb in the astrometrics lab...

Re: VOY S6: Virtuoso

I have to respectfully disagree with Jammer's contention that the characterization of the Qomar belongs "in the dumpster." Yes, they are annoying, but I think that that's exactly what the writer's, director, etc. were shooting for... I found their awkward rudeness to be hilarious, in keeping with the overall level of absurdity showcased in this episode. The fact that they were all so short was a nice touch as well - it's little touches like that that are so effective in creating interesting alien societies.

Jammer tends to prefer scenes advancing important ethical dilemmas and grand philosophical questions. Perhaps in cases like these one needs to step back and enjoy the absurdity of it all - A whole society becomes obsessed, "fanatics" as Seven puts it, with the Doctor. I mean, c'mon, this is a patently ridiculous scenario!

I do wish the Captain used her leverage - access to the Doctor - to the crew's advantage more. If the Qomar were so advanced, perhaps Janeway could have negotiated for an exchange of technology or something else useful for the crew's journey.

Re: BSG S4: Deadlock

Apparently, about 11 minutes was cut for this episode -- it was elaborated that Galactica had not enough Marines to keep security, so Adama's choice was either bring over Centurions, or find a human solution to maintain order on Galactica: Baltar.

Re: BSG S4: The Oath

"People say it makes no sense, but the truth is that Kelly's marines were breaking down the bay door before the raptor had even secured for launch."

No -- the Raptor was gone before the Marines arrived to force the door open. It was Adama's pride.

Re: VOY S4: Demon

Awesome review. Much as I enjoy the regular format, these occasional alternate script forms are hilarious.

Re: TNG S4: Redemption, Part I

Great to see these reviews. Looking at all these episodes as a seasonal block (which wasn't the way I initially watched them at all) shows what could be the strongest plot arc, in the build of Klingon division and Romulan intrigue. Plus, thematically the idea of family is very strong across the board, which plays into the final Klingon Civil war decently with regards to Worf joining his brother at the end. TNG might have better continuity and inter-episode arcs then is often assumed, or emerges by comparison with DS9 or the like.
It also occurs to me that this was an extremely strong season for Data, giving both increased insight to how he normally operates and thinks (Data's Day, In Theory) as well as opportunities to expand in different roles (Brothers, Clues). It's amazing how much the show could do with him while still showing that for all his efforts to fit in, he's still massively inhuman.
Glad to see the love for the Nth Degree. That's one of my favorite, quintissensial episodes of the series. It doesn't have the high drama or thematic intensity of, say, Best of Both Worlds or Darmok, but it's highly enjoyable. My favorite moments are when Barclay is spouting technobabble that even the regular crew can't follow, and when his messianic conviction in his special mission is shown to be completely justified. He's a great character, and gets excellent work here.
