Re: ENT S4: Fourth Season Recap

Chris had a good point here. No more reset button. Also, could I propose an alternate ending for Voyager (not that it will change anything because I'm over nine years late)? Have the crew comming back after 26-29 odd years in space. Have them comming back traumatised. No victory celebrtion. Instead a court martial. The crew are put on trial. Captain Janeway takes full responsibility and urges the court to punish her instead of the rest of the crew. The crimes are numerous. Over the 29 years lost in the Gamma Quadrent there have been hundreds of violations of the prime directive along with plenty of other violations and unethical decisions. Perhaps the crew should be seen as vilains especially after the doctors holo novel. The whole crew are arrested in the end but not so much for violations of starfleet but merely for conspiring with other aliens to produce a virus that destroyed the borg. Thus being involved in the biggest genocide in history. I believe a trial on Earth with an unhappy ending would be far more compelling than the time travel plot at the end. Star Trek should have taken more risks. The parallel universe plot line is more in line of the risks I would have taken. May also point out that on the whole I have enjoyed the series. All five of them and the films. My criticism of Berman and Braga is that they were capable of doing more but relied to heavily on "reset button" rather than character development. If you're going to use the stupid button, at least be ironic about it. Turn it into a running joke. Or better still create the illusion of the reset button with the characters initially unaware of the consequeces of last episodes actions until it hits them in the face in a shock twist at the end of the present episode.

Re: DS9 S6: Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night

I think that in this case the ends justify the means. There is no such thing as a fair war. Sometimes rules have to be broken. Morality shouldn't always be about right or wrong. It should be about what is the situation, and what is the best possible course of action. If the captain was perfectly moral, the Dominion would have destroyed the Federation and possibly the Klingons and even the Romulans. Given the alternative, it's such a small price to pay.
