Re: TOS S2: The Ultimate Computer

Only the wildly inappropriate ending keeps this from being a four-star episode.

Definitely the best of the Original Series' many "computer takes over" episodes.

Re: DS9 S5: Call to Arms

the whole odo / kira relationship never worked. i'm sorry, but it's just flat. not believable. no chemistry. nothing. it's awful really.

Re: VOY S2: The 37's

The idea of this episode is kind of fun, but from the first time I saw it I noticed glaring mistakes with it.

• Why was the aircraft set down on the planet but the truck left floating in space? For that matter why were the vehicles brought at all?

• This abduction was supposed to have taken place in 1937. The truck is 1936 model. Why would an almost brand new truck have tons of rust on it?

• The truck was owned by a farmer. This was the height of the Great Depression. Farmers were not doing well at that time. Very very few could afford a brand new truck.

• The “37s “ we’re supposed to be the ancestors of the current human population on this planet. How was that possible being they had been in cryo-stasis for 400 years- presumably from the moment of their abduction . How were they able to produce offspring during this period. of cryo-stasis ?

Re: DS9 S3: Fascination

I agree with you, Springy! I winced quite a lot of the time watching Keiko and Miles, but she is not a harpy. They are both strong-willed people, and they have differences, but they truly love each other. The realism of their relationship was contrasted with the craziness going on around them. I like both of them, and their marriage.

And I actually enjoyed this episode. The one element that makes ME cringe is actually Lwaxana Troi and the way she treats Odo. Someone further up in the comments said she basically harasses him. It's true. And it's a pity, because their previous encounter showed her capable of being kind, discreet, and even wise.

But, for the rest, this was a light episode that often made me smile, and that had a truly loving marriage at its core. I'd probably rate it 2 or 2.5 stars.

Re: TOS S2: The Omega Glory

This was one hot mess of an episode. Worse than I remembered.

I haven't seen "Spock's Brain" since the 1970s -- and I have a feeling I'm going to like it better than "Omega Glory."

Re: TOS S2: Patterns of Force

It's rather premature of Spock to be contemplating Federation membership for the two planets -- especially Ekos.

And I'm not sure why either would have any interest in joining the Federation after what happened.

I see this as a Romulan opportunity.

Re: DS9 S5: For the Uniform

Hate this episode. Watched it yesterday. I enjoyed the whole Moby Dick, Les MIserables narrative and enjoyed Kenneth Marshall's acting. But I agree with the comment:
"Instead this episode turns into a character assassination of Sisko and everyone else following his orders"
I don't give a damn about Sisko, somehow he seems like a war criminal/James Bond like villain, but hte other characters on board ? Really ? No one is gonna protest ? Not a word, a comment, a protest at least just for the records ?
That goes especially towards Kira and Worf.

Nog - his a cadet and probably afraid of the whole situation and I can believe he wouldn't say a word especially question the actions of the great Sisko.

Jadzia - I always thought she was the Spock of the group, an Asari Matriarch with knowledge and experience balancing out Sisko's temper. But maybe it's because Sisko reminds her of Curzon, she herself had a revenge rmapage on her hands not so long ago, and she is in love with Worf and love makes You dumb and blind.

Worf every episode ever: "Honor, honor, honor, honor, hodor, hodor, hodor, there is no honor in killing the innocent and unarmed"
Kira every episode ever: "They killed 15 million civilian Bajorans. Oh the horror, oh the humanity.... I mean the Bajoranity"

Sisko - Hey guys, would You kindly nuke that settlement fulf of unarmed civillians for me ?
Kira and Worf - Sure, no problem, we're cool.

Re: DS9 S6: Favor the Bold

Back in the day, my issues with Sacrifice Of Angels caused me to overlook the greatness of this episode, the Part 1 to its Part 2. But it's a superb piece of work, one of DS9's finest hours. I love Nana Visitor in these episodes and the way the occupation storyline puts Kira through the wringer. (Also, her season 6 hair is her best hair.) Another nice detail is the pragmatic working relationship that has developed between Kira and Quark. It's a good Vorta episode too (we learn a lot about Weyoun), as well as featuring the series's first real Founder-Vorta dialog scenes, which are superb.

Re: DS9 S6: Rocks and Shoals

Short notes on this episode, just some of the many reasons it's so great:

- it's the best Jem'Hadar episode (building on The Abandoned, Hippocratic Oath and To The Death, but more successful than any)
- and easily the best Vorta episode (Treachery, Faith and the Great River in S7 never worked that well for me; here, in the form of Keevan, the Vorta are shown at their most duplicitous and self-serving)
- on top of that, it's also a fantastic Kira episode... her storyline is brilliant and told in just a few scenes, many non-verbal; the dialogue is perfect but Vejar's direction and Visitor's acting do the heavy lifting
- Lilyan Chauvin is superb and incredibly memorable in her small but crucial role as Vedek Yassim
- excellent use of Garak too

For me, while A Time To Stand is strong, this is considerably better - so for me A Time To Stand is 3.5 and this is 4.

Re: TNG S2: The Child

I definitely agree w/all those who hated Pulaski. I never liked her. I just saw this episode, and I guess I didn't realize she was such an uber bitch to Data for no reason when I was younger. Her attitude toward him in this episode is ridiculous. She mispronounces his name, then pronounces it correctly, and the says "whatever" b/c she doesn't actually care. Even if I thought he was just a machine, if he took the time to correct the pronunciation of his name, I would call him by the name he wanted me to use!

Re: TOS S2: The Trouble With Tribbles

If "City on the Edge of Forever" is the best TOS drama, then "The Trouble With Tribbles" is the best dramedy. (I say dramedy because there were dramatic stakes to the episode, which made the comedy all the better).

I think one reason the episode is so good is the characters stay true to character. They didn't have them behaving out of character just to achieve some laughs.

I think this episode is the one that cemented "Star Trek's" place as an enduring franchise. It's also the peak of the TOS to me. I don't see another episode coming up that matches it.

It's also one of the few Trek episodes or movies that puts every single minute to extraordinary use. The others:

City on the Edge of Forever
Mirror, Mirror
Doomsday Machine
The Wrath of Khan
The Undiscovered Country


The Measure of a Man
Yesterday's Enterprise
Best of Both Worlds
Inner Light


The Die is Cast
The Visitor
In the Pale Moonlight
The Siege of AR-558
