Re: DSC S1: What's Past Is Prologue

It was a thoroughly entertaining episode but as others have said - it's unbelievable when you give it a moment's reflection.

I hope that we get to see PU Lorca, as Jason Isaacs is a great actor and liked him as the captain - flaws and all. The change to 'evil bad guy' was too quick and jarring and seemed unrealistic to me. If he'd had some not so dark motive, I could have accepted that. Saru however was great as a starfleet captain, and I hope he is given the opportunity to stay in that role for some time.

I really liked the USS Discovery shots in this episode, along with the amazing score.

Re: DSC S1: Vaulting Ambition

"If is different but mirror. So whatever occured in PU that allowed Hoshi to exist also happened in MU but mirror. You talk about this being unlikely but you fail to concider that in a multiverse of infinite universes it is very possible. "

How is it possible? So everyone in the MU is as nice as they are in the PU until the time comes for Hoshi to be born and then the Terran Empire suddenly comes into being and everyone is now mean? It makes no sense.

Re: DSC S1: Vaulting Ambition

@Gee
My complaint about the MU is less about the science more about internal consistency. Even if you accept the multiverse theory, how can a single MU as it is portrayed in Trek be sustained for longer than an episode or two let alone hundreds of years? The constant chain of killings and the way the Terran Empire seems to be run would mean that family lines would become different. If there is an Archer and Hoshi in the 22nd century MU, life is so different from the PU that there is very unlikely to be the same chain of events leading up to the crew of the Discovery being the same people and names as they are in the PU.

Think about it too much and it all falls apart.

Re: DSC S1: Vaulting Ambition

When you think about the MU and the idea of parallel universes in general, how nonsensical is it that there could be a universe like the MU where everyone has the same name and looks the same? All it would take is someone dying at a different time from the PU or in different circumstances, and then the whole chain of events leading up to someone being born is messed up instantly. And they say even a butterfly flapping its wings can cause a tornado on the other side of the world...

Re: TOS S1: The Devil in the Dark

Did anyone notice that except for the Horta, there are no female cast members in this episode... anywhere.

Re: ENT S3: Twilight

Glad I got another chance to see this episode again on Netflix because I didn't remember any of it.

Re: ENT S4: Observer Effect

I think the criteria the aliens would accept to initiate first contact their way would be if the subjects are smart enough to diagnose AND develop a cure for the disease AND use it successfully to cure the affected. Hefty requirements for first contact!

Re: ENT S4: United

I thought the Ushaan deathmatch fight loophole was pretty funny and somewhat plausible. Presumably, previous Ushaan fights has only been performed between two Andorians. I think both fighters know not to cut off the antennae. It's a sensitive subject, both "Andorian" fighters would rather die than get their antennae cut off. As Shran said, "you humiliated me" lol

Re: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

I believe that STAR TREK is not simply one thing or another. It is not specifically Science-fiction, nor is it specifically action-adventure. In that sense, I have come to believe that Star Trek is unique on several levels. For instance, I used to think that DS9 and Voyager were not Star Trek, because they were not set on a ship with the name Enterprise, their intros did not include the "To boldly go" monologue, and the general premise of each series was considerably different than what I considered iconic Trek, aka TOS and TNG. However, after thorough consideration, this is not correct. DS9 and Voyager each include special elements and the soul of what made Star Trek so wonderful in the first place.

The same is true with the films. TMP was a much more cerebral film, much more thought provoking and philosophical. TWOK was the traditional swashbuckling Kirk-beats-em-up style film. And to me, which film you like best indicates what you prefer to see in Star Trek. If you prefer TMP, chances are you also prefer more thoughtful, philosophical stories that deal strictly with the human condition. If you prefer TWOK, you enjoy Star Trek for it's unique action-adventure style, and the general family feel of the crew. There are several other parallels; for instance, in the case of pilot episodes,"The Cage" was far more cerebral and thought-provoking, much like TMP; however, "Where No Man Has Gone Before" was more about swashbuckling action, and the sense of family that the rest of TOS had. Another similar comparison is, indeed, TOS and TNG. TNG was considered "boring" by many, much like TMP and "The Cage", for the same reasons of more intellectual, philosophical stories. TOS, on the other hand, fits better with stories like "Where No Man Has Gone Before" and TWOK. Depending on which of these types of stories you prefer, you may like Star Trek for varying reasons. I myself tend to lean toward the treaditional Sci-fi type stories, such as The Cage/TMP/TNG, but again, that's just the kind of Star Trek fan that I am.
