Re: VOY S7: Seventh Season Recap

I just watched Equinox on Youtube. I agree that Voyager's tone should have been more like that. I don't condone Ransom's actions, but Janeway was incredibly naive & simplistic by not placing herself in his shoes & just condemning him outright.
Ransom: "It's easy to cling to principles when you're on a ship with its bulkheads intact manned by a crew that's not starving."
Janeway: "It's never easy, but if we turn our back on our principles we stop being human."
She might as well have said, "Well, the show's production staff is obviously more obliging to us."
As Jammer pointed out elsewhere, any extreme damage Voyager takes becomes a non-issue by the end of the episode.
It's a pity that the show was never given the power & nuance it could've had (Lessing & Gilmore would've certainly made encore appearances had Equinox been a TNG or DS9 installment).

Re: Star Trek: Generations

Generations was a disappointment for me because I always felt that the film basically invalidated both Star Trek VI & "All Good Things..." in the same way Exorcist II: The Heretic & Alien 3 invalidated their respective predecessors.

Re: VOY S5: Course: Oblivion

The faux Janeway proves even more dense than the real one.
Once she realizes that the crew are duplicates and that their survival depends on returning to their native environment (which is clearly established as being closer to them than Earth), what does she do? Does she do the sensible thing and backtrack toward their real planet of origin? No, she keeps going toward Earth, a planet they have zero chance of reaching in time.
Her reasoning: "I promised this crew I'd get them home."
The real crew not turning against the real Janeway in the "Basics" two-parter was ridiculous enough, but one of the faux crew should've done their part to sabotage the faux Voyager's systems after hearing faux Janeway's reasoning for not doing the obivious.

Re: VOY S5: Dark Frontier

I'm surprised no one brought this funny nit up. Near the end when Janeway explains her plan to rescue Seven, she says "Thanks to the Hansens, we'll be prepared for an encounter with the Borg."
Ummm..., weren't the Hansens assimilated? So, wouldn't any knowledge they had be useless since the Borg would obtained it once they were assimilated?

Re: ANDR S1: The Mathematics of Tears

Hell, Tribbles are more interesting than Hunt.

Re: TNG S4: Redemption, Part I

TNG was more complex than notorious TNG-haters like Mark A. Altman & Ira Steven Behr give it credit for.

Re: ANDR S1: It Makes a Lovely Light

Like Kathryn Janeway before him, I basically get the urge to laugh when Dylan Hunt gives orders in an attempt to project a commanding presence (Kirk, Picard, & Sisko, he ain't), and, like Tom Paris before him, I basically get the urge to puke when Dylan Hunt spews out one-liners in an attempt to show that he's witty (humor, thy name is Sorbs).

Re: Star Trek: Nemesis

Dirk Hartmann:
How is Nemesis worse than Trek V?
Trek V also has its captain acting out of character. There's also a clown (Sybok) introduced out of left field, just like B-4 and the Remans.
Nemesis at least had fine SFX.

Re: DS9 S6: Change of Heart

I can't help but think that it would've been more moving if Jadzia had died at this point in the series, instead of half a season later.

Re: TNG S1: Skin of Evil

I actually thought "Skin of Evil" was a bit better than most seem to make it. The sudden death of Tasha, while somewhat anticlimatic, was still a shock. The Troi/Armus scenes weren't as powerful as they wanted to be, but the funeral scene for Tasha at the end was fine, I felt.
And, as you pointed out, the episode "does not try to redeem Armus, and leaves him stranded and as unhappy as ever," which is another thing I liked about it, including Picard's great line("I'm not taking you anywhere") and his following log entry revealing that the shuttle has been destroyed to prevent Armus from leaving and declare Vegra II off limits.
Of course the best part is that this 'lemon' led to the 'lemonade' that was "Yesterday's Enterprise."
