Re: TNG S7: Thine Own Self

This was the 1st TNG episode that showed shift work, well other than the Lower Decks episode when all the ensigns all had to work shifts on the Bridge. Every other episode shows the main characters on the Bridge 24/7, including Crusher. How can she be Chief Medical Officer, always hanging out on the Bridge with the gang, and find time to pull night shift as a Commander?

As far as an officer ordering a man to his death, every Trek series had expendable Red Shirts for that. If there is going to be danger, a Red Shirt takes the phaser fire. Even during an intruder alert on the ship, a Red Shirt dies as the intruder makes their way to their objective. No need to order them to their death, they are self terminating.

I also never knew a probe or satellite used some sort nuclear propulsion system that has to be recovered if it crashed on some unsophisticated planet. They always said that nuclear power was some ancient technology not used in centuries. Had Data left the radioactive material where it landed, I doubt these townspeople would had ever come across it. They seemed to be content in staying in town, and not hiking through the countryside. Also it seemed strange that Data knew of "empirical data", but radioactivity. Or that he tried to correct the teacher about elements, and that fire doesn't come from wood.

Re: TNG S7: Inheritance

I could never make the leap and believe that an intelligent android wouldn't know they aren't a real person. And you would think if someone built an android, it wound be as smooth as a Ken doll down there. Other than a drunk and horny Tasha Yar, Data would have no use for sex organs.

I imagine when she shuts down once she discovers she was an android, she would go up in smoke like a tape from Mission: Impossible.

As far as having a dialog with a hologram, they do that now with the AI in phone voice response systems. It can understand what you say and can guide you where you need to go. They replaced the DJ's on radio stations with AI. It's not 100% perfect, but it can be difficult to tell the DJ isn't a real person.

Re: TNG S7: Liaisons

What does Anna mean when she says "Love Me!". Was she talking about the act or the emotion? If a woman asks you to immediately Love her, how do you do that? Kiss her? Hold her hand? Take her to the movies? Bring her flowers?? Maybe I'm just another dense guy?

The ambassador assign to Worf seemed to know how to fight, so I'm not sure what he wanted to get out of Worf. Surely he had to spar with someone to get to the level that he was. Or maybe he just watched Jackie Chan movies like Lenina Huxley said she did in Demolition Man?

Re: TNG S7: Homeward

Geordi, Geordi, Geordi. When my computer starts acting up, I reboot it. Wait until these people go to sleep, then Ctrl-Alt-Delete the holodeck. Or do as others suggested and just gas all of the people and put them asleep. Then toss Mr Cry Baby who got out of the holodeck, back in with them. Drop them off on a planet and leave. They will wonder where they are, but they'll get over it. Let them think what they want. There would be no way for them to figure out they are now on a planet 10 light years away. They'll adapt and life goes on. Better than waking up dead on their old planet.

Re: TNG S6: Starship Mine

Fights. Whenever Kirk or Picard get in a hand to hand fight, they get their butts kicked by either a retired Admiral, or some woman. Picard can't even hold his own against Kelsey. She beat him down and left him on the ship to pay his regrets. Of course he got the last laugh by removing the control module on the container, and it explodes on her, but still. Kirk usually gets beat up by the old dude who is at least 20 years older than him. The most unrealistic fights ever.

Re: TNG S4: Galaxy's Child

I saw this episode again recently, and each time I can't figure out how Mrs. Brahms saw the ending of the holodeck file. It would had taken hours to reach the end where she says "that every time Geordi looks at the engines he's looking at her, every time he touches the engines he's touching her". She had only been looking at the replay for a few minutes. Plus, I didn't think a holodeck program worked that way. It's more like a scenario that is programmed. So the next time you run the program, it will be the same setting, but not the same exact story or outcome. It's not like a VCR with a ply by play from the first time it is run. The Captain goes to the same Dixon Hill story, but it is a fresh encounter, not an exact rehash of the first few times he experienced that book chapter.

Geordi needs to get some ladies pointers from Wesley. At least he hooked up and made out with Robin Lefler in, The Game.

Re: TNG S1: The Arsenal of Freedom

How many jobs has Geordi had on the Enterprise? He starts out as Coffee Boy 1st class where he talks down to the Chief Engineer, to him becoming the Chief Engineer himself and expert of everything Tachyon. Don't you have to go back to the Academy to learn ships systems and the technobabble? He needed that to impress Dr. Braum's.

I was turned off when he took the ship into the atmosphere to make the invisible ship visible, while shields were at maximum to keep the ship from burning up. But as soon as they destroy the invisible ship, he tells the navigator to shut down the shields while they are still in the planets atmosphere. Gotta save those shield batteries.
