Re: TNG S4: Galaxy's Child

Anyone just watch these episodes to enjoy them? I liked the chemistry the actors had together (Brahms/Geordi). Sure the storyline was creepy, but that’s what we needed to see as anyone interacting with a holo character is weird. I more so took away that you shouldn’t assume the imagined person you’ve been chatting with is the actual when you finally meet them.

People overthink these issues way too much. Great episode, even if the dialog was awkward at times.

Re: VOY S4: The Gift

I agree that it’s sad when a main character leaves, but for Voyager, this one made sense. Kes was simply too powerful by this point.

I remember something the actress of Troi said for TNG. That if Deanna was on the bridge when those folks met certain races, TNG wouldn’t have a storyline since Troi would have been able to tell everyone what was really going on.

Same problem with Kes in this show. She could easily solve problems - like removing that Borg implant with just her thoughts. I’m not a huge fan of telepathy or telekinesis in shows, so I understood the writers changing the focus to Seven. Always love a good “figuring out humans” theme. More relatable to the viewers.

I did love how calm and relaxed Kes was though. Was a favourite in the early episodes.

Re: VOY S3: Displaced

*shrugs*

I liked this episode quite a bit. The ideas involved are what makes it interesting. A group of people stealing ships and putting the occupants in aquariums, basically. Kind of what we do with zoos. If you think of it like that, it explains Janeway’s disgust.

Just ignore the tidbits here and there that don’t make sense - like say, Tom and B’Elanna not picking up the weapons. So many folks above couldn’t let that idea go. Great episode for their relationship. And I anticipated the outcome of Voyager the whole way through. I don’t dwell on some of the tech stuff that doesn’t make sense. Unique episode and I enjoyed imagining what this alien spaceship might look like.

Better than the dinosaur episode that came before it. Seriously, who could imagine the dino people building their ships with those clunky claws and giant nails? That’s more the idea that I can’t unsee while watching space shows.

Re: VOY S2: The Thaw

The first time I saw this episode it stood out. Just plain creepy and unable to be forgotten. I anticipated it when watching Voyager again. It’s all about being stuck in a bad dream or nightmare...for 19 years. Can you imagine? And then knowing that you could die if something happens in the dream. Voyager peeps did a great job on this one.

Anyone feel bad for baby Harry though? That poor kid had to experience the fear for real. Sure hope the real life set was a whole lot different that what we saw on video.

Re: VOY S3: Distant Origin

Some of the archaelogical facts in this episode are wrong.

They say that humans and hadrosaurs evolved from Eryops, both of which almost certainly aren't true. And that it lived in the Devonian Era 400 million years ago. Actually it is from the Permian Era about 295 million years ago. Reptiles didn't even evolve on Earth until 310-320 million years ago.

A better fit would have been some sort of early synapsid or therapsid species, from somewhere around 250-320 million years ago.

But, I guess that's not that important for the episode. :D

The fact that they have had this 'doctrine' for at least 20 million years is pretty unbelievable. Any species would have had significant societal and cultural changes over that time. Not to mention evolving physical and mentally. That's a long ass time.

And after being so technologically powerful for millions upon millions of years, they would be known everywhere in the galaxy I would assume, if not absolute rulers of it.

If you completely overlook the silliness of the whole setup, it's a decent episode.

3 stars.
