Re: TOS S1: The Alternative Factor

An almost completely worthless episode - definitely the worst of the first season. Bad editing, bad script, bad direction, bad everything. A 10-minute story padded out to fill an hour, it is laughably bad. How many times does this Lazarus guy fall off a cliff anyway? My only suspicion is that the production team was so heavily involved with the subsequent episode (City on the Edge of Forever) that they flung this one out without any thought. Even the original actor, John Blythe Barrymore, didn't show up to play the part so Robert Brown was hastily cast as the annoying "Lazarus."

Re: TOS S1: This Side of Paradise

I've always enjoyed this episode on a couple of levels. First, the "science" of it isn't stretched as much as ANY episode with human aliens speaking English with a California accent, and there are too many of those. Second, the dramatic scenes in the transporter room were exceptionally scripted and directed. One of the my top 5.

Just as well Garak didn't just say "Computer, end program" isn't it?

Re: TNG S2: The Schizoid Man

I think the Vulcan doctor was used on the away team instead of Pulaski so that Graves would have another young female to hit on.

Re: VOY S5: In the Flesh

I can't bear this episode.

I can't get over the perfect recreation of Star Fleet HQ and the pitch perfect 8472 posing as humans.

Re: PIC S1: Stardust City Rag

"That" scene was enough to put me off Picard for good, and cancel by Amazon Prime subscription (that's where it is shown in the UK).

Not Trek, Not Good.

Re: DS9 S4: Little Green Men

This was my favorite DS9 episode. I loved the premise and the fact that it gave an explanation for the Roswell incident. One reason I probably liked it so much was I was living near Roswell New Mexico when the episode aired.

Re: ENT S2: Carbon Creek

I liked the episode and agree with Debeli's comments. Many of the best all time Star Trek episodes, in all of the series, were not action packed. One thing though with the game of pool, if he didn't know the rules, how did he know to call the 8-ball shot? How'd he know not to scratch?

Re: DSC S3: That Hope Is You, Part 2

I also liked the subtle nod at the end that Stamets is not OK with Burnham...

Re: DSC S3: That Hope Is You, Part 2

I really enjoyed this episode. Action packed. What let it down was the usual Discovery thing of now filling out characters before they make major decisions.

Voyager FFS managed this with Anorax in The Year of Hell and that was two episodes!

Imagine wed seen Osyraa in earlier episodes mulling joining the Federation, being kind to her Doctor/Scientist etc rather than the seasons Big Bad suddenly negotiating. And now she's gone.

Or Georgiou being nice in earlier episodes before she was written out.

I liked the fleshed out explanation for The Burn which made sense.

But all in all, I thought it was terrific.

Re: DSC S3: Terra Firma, Part 2

I enjoy Discovery, but I just didn’t buy the tributes to Georgiou. Felt really fake. This wasn’t Tasha Yar or Jadzia, but someone who went out of their way to be nasty.

Re: TNG S6: Aquiel

Me, 10 minutes in - "Oh, I see - they're doing an update of Laura!"

Me, 20 minutes in :"The dog's name is Maura? The dog's the killer!"

Re: DSC S3: Terra Firma, Part 1

I was have expecting the changelings to show up on the ice planet near the Gamma Quadrant!

I really didn't buy the adoration for Georgiou from Saru and Tilly. I still don't get why she seems to have free reign on the ship. She is a comic book villain. That said, there did seem to be growth from her in the MU. But like others have said, how does it function?

Re: TNG S3: The Price

The best parts of the episode are Troi straddling Ral, and the calisthenics scene with Troi and Crusher in their workout outfits.

Re: DS9 S7: Take Me Out to the Holosuite

Funny how this gets a pass for a Season 7 episode. It is a complete waste of story telling.

If only it was a Voyager episode where it would be dragged up for the waste of time it is.

Re: VOY S3: Real Life

@https://www.jammersreviews.com/comments/?searchfor=navamske&searchby=author Yes, American Dad!

Watched this again today (yay lockdown) and just realised that Belle’s accident happened AFTER the Doctor removed her from the first team, for her safety. So that’s another reason for him wanting to forget the program during the episode. Pity Voyager never returned to his family.

Re: LD S1: General Discussion

Dismissing a show outright from a trailer is just silly. If you are a real Star Trek fan you have to give it a chance even if it looks and sounds different than what you are used to.

Re: VOY S5: Gravity

Am I the only person to be confused that time is moving faster for the people in the gravity well versus outside it, and how that’s backwards from reality? I shouldn’t be bothered but this stuff but, it’s COVID and I’m watching waaaay too much Star Trek...

Oops... Sorry for the grammar mistake. I'm usually much better at writing than that! Of course it should have said "there is a trip..." or more precisely "there was a trip..."

Am I the only Pennsylvanian Trekker? Carbon Creek is in the Poconos, their is a trip to Doylestown for a baseball game... but T'Mir goes to Pittsburgh, the whole way across the state, to sell the Velcro? Philadelphia would have been a much more logical choice.... Don't you think? Yes, I'm re-watching Enterprise... LOL

Re: VOY S5: Drone

The “You will adapt” line gets me every time,, especially used after Seven’s “You are hurting me” line, which she thinks will work a second time. Heartbreaking.

Some lovely cinematography in the episode too.

Gee what's this bomb shaped object I wonder. Let's beam it on to our ship like a bunch of fucking regards and take half an episode to figure the bomb that looks like a bomb is a bomb.
