Re: DS9 S2: Blood Oath

I find this episode superb. The authors show great respect for the Klingon culture, contrary to what those idiots in Discovery have done to Klingons, beneath comptempt.
I also love how Jadzia behaves herself, she had no obligations.
Episodes like this persuade me that DS9 is the best Star Trek series

Re: TNG S7: Homeward

I quite liked this episode, and I don't quite understand why others did not. It an example of how compassion and humanity can win over the abstract, heartless Prime Directive. I was only sorry that Vorin killed himself, there wasn't really any good reason to do so. We have many examples in the Star Trek saga of people from less advanced civilizations who were very happy to join the more advanced reality. It seems that nobody really bothered to explain Vorin the many advantages of 24th century federation

Re: VOY S7: Homestead

I totally agree with Charles here. I found this episode totally unnecessary. Why did they want to get rid of Neelix, with an inplausible plot? A handful of Talaxians so far away from their native planet?
I wanted Neelix to reach earth, like everybody else

Re: DS9 S7: The Siege of AR-558

I found this episode powerful and compelling. I don't agree with those saying that we didn't need to be shown all that.
Why not? This is DS9, this is life.
That is why DS9 is so different than the other Star Trek series and why many of us love it so much.

Re: DS9 S7: What You Leave Behind

Did anybody else felt what I did? The federation was not ready for a large scale war. Their ships were an easy target for the Jem'Hadar, the Breen, even the Klingon (there was a time when they are at war during DS9 time frame), let alone the Borg... Punching a hole in those large dishes was child's play.
By the end of the Star Trek time-line as we know it, they were beginning to do something about it: the Defiant, the Sovereign-class Enterprise...
Because the time-line basically ends there, we don't know if they ever learned their lesson. We do know that they won the war against the Sphere Builders. A shame that that story was never displayed on screen.

Re: DS9 S6: Tears of the Prophets

Simply I didn't like the idea of Jadzia being killed and being replaced by Ezri. Jadzia was a woman, a great one at that. Ezri is a child.

Re: DS9 S7: What You Leave Behind

This is definitely the best final episode of any Star Trek Series, even if I don't consider Voyager's final episode too bad. TNG's final episode is mediocre at best (IMO). As everybody knows, TOS doesn't have one and Enterprise has an awful one.
The problem with DS9 is that its end on air doesn't really end the story. So many questions remain answered, so many storylines remain open... Will Sisko ever come back? And will Odo really forget Kira? Will Jake see his father, even in a vision? What about Cardassia, its rebuilding was worth seeing. And the female changeling trial, possibly worst war criminal ever... The list could be endless. It was possible to create an entire new series as DS9's continuation. The same cannot be said of any other Star Trek series.

Re: VOY S2: Tuvix

I never liked Janeway too much, in fact I found her the worst captain of all series. But here I really hated her. She played God with the life of a sentient being, and who gave her that right? The doctor was much wiser.

Re: DS9 S5: Soldiers of the Empire

I like this episode. Recreating an alien culture and environment is not the easiest thing to do in sci-fi, and attempts quite often turn into a farce (even in DS9, see the Ferengi episodes).
DS9 is my favourite Star Trek series. All the others are shallow by comparison. DS9 has well rounded characters, complex plots, it definitely isn't a kind of "they lived happily ever after" show, doesn't shy away from awkward situations and feelings, like violence, evil, betrayal, even homosexuality (even if the word is never mentioned).

Re: VOY S7: Inside Man

Simply preposterous. Wherever you put Ferengi they are supposed to make you laugh (except in DS9, where in some episodes they are taken more seriously).
Except that this is no laughing matter.
Besides, how can an accomplished scientist like Janeway and all the others be so gullible?

Re: VOY S5: Drone

I am watching again Voyager. It was the first complete series I watched about 8 years ago.
Well, what to say? Drone is a refreshing change from Voyager's dominant theme: the evil alien. At list in DS9 there was only one relentless villain, the Dominion. In Voyager, from the Kazon to the Malon (that is what I am watching now) they are all bad guys. Even the good ones have something "wrong".
In this episode "humanity" shamelessly wins over other considerations. Best episode thus far.

BTW, what Zulu says makes a lot of sense. There must have been a better solution.

Re: VOY S2: Tuvix

I find it disconcerting that captain Janeway plays God here, deciding who has the right to live and who must die.
If we had been in battle, captains decide all the time who must do a dangerous, possibly lethal job.
But this is "an every day situation". Clearly she killed one individual so that 2 could live. Not to mention that the procedure could have gone wrong anyway.
At least I find the doctor more consequent: you shall do no harm.
Kathryn Janeway is normally so concerned about the subtleties of ethics, she consults her senior officers, but here she doesn't seem to give a damn. Bad episode, I could have done without it.

Re: DS9 S1: Duet

Masterpiece! It could have been written by the likes of Euripides, Shakespeare, Goethe, Mikhail Bulgakov...
The tragedy, the human drama, the soul-searching are unrivalled. It this were a film it would certainly deserve a few awards.

Rosario, do you watch every science fiction episode or movie as you did with this one?

Re: DS9 S7: Take Me Out to the Holosuite

Masterpiece! Possibly the funniest Star Trek episode ever. So many races come together for a "humble" game of baseball, that is the work of a genius :)

Re: DS9 S5: Things Past

Honestly, I didn't like it. Some of the Star Trek writers seem to get a sadistic pleasure from character assassination, very much like in Voyager "Fury". True, this is a much better written episode, but the taste it left in my mouth is the same as in "Fury". I suppose I like to believe in intelligent beings integrity (unless of course they are the villains), that is why.

Re: VOY S6: Fury

I watched Voyager one episode after another, after buying the DVDs.
I enjoyed, but I had never seen all TNG episodes, only a few.
Now I am watching TNG's every episode, and I am becoming aware of all Voyager shortcomings.
What annoyed me most was this episode, "Fury".
I felt that it almost managed to destroy the credibility of the entire series by its own. As it has been noticed here very well, it is the exact opposite of what we saw in "The Gift", a beautiful and "daring" episodes. This one is sheer lunacy.
There are so many contradictions I have later noticed about Voyager: Janeway can be "maternal" but she can also become unreasonable and neurotic, almost hysterical all of a sudden, without any apparent reason. What a difference with Picard!
