Re: DSC S2: The Red Angel

Not really feeling this show, I'm sorry to say. They may as well rename it Star Trek: Michael Burnham because the universe literally seems to revolve around her.

On top of that Tilly has become annoying and Georgeiou's acting is atrocious.

After nearly 2 seasons we still barely even know most of the bridge crew.

Re: TNG S5: Silicon Avatar

I'll just say, the comments on this one are weird. Everyone must have had a hangover or something.

On the episode, I really felt for Marr and was hoping the episode payoff would be much more emotionally rewarding. I could relate to her sense of regret and loss, and using data as a conduit to grieve that, especially as she hated him so much, was a nice touch. I only wish Data could somehow have used that connection to her son as a means to stop her from trying to kill the entity, and at least allow the communication attempt to continue.

Perhaps data could have found a diary entry from the son on forgiving some egregious act against him, or a reference to a favourite mythological tale that deals with those topics. That would have made for a very 'trek' ending (even more so given the foregoing "darmok"), whilst still giving vent to the doctor's anger. If the entity turned out to be a jerk and then attacked the ship, then they could use the doctor's resonance trick and know they hid rid the universe of a scourge.

Re: DSC S2: If Memory Serves

28 million just within the US? Has that been confirmed? That is massive numbers, doesn't seem the type of show to pull those numbers.

I thought the episode was "ok". Probably 2.5 stars. I'm enjoying Pike. What I am not enjoying though is Section 31. They're ridiculous. They were going to straight up murder Spock who is a Federation officer. I don't care how "out the law" they are, if they are going around murdering their own officers then they are cartoon villains.

Re: TNG S4: Night Terrors

Stopped watching at the godawful Worf suicide scene. Hackneyed horror cliches, bad acting, recycled plot lines. Not quite as anger producing as "conspiracy" but by god I've had enough. Next episode!

There is far too much boning on the Enterprise. And on the holodeck now? I hope there is a cleansing routine that runs afterwards. And an automatic privacy lock. As I recall, pretty much anyone can just wander in

Re: TNG S2: Up the Long Ladder

I know this episode is years old but I need to complain. Didn't we already do the "kidnap you for your genetic heritage" thing in "When the Bough Breaks"? Side note, I love how the camera focused on an incensed William 'To boldly bone things that no man has boned before' Riker when the Prime Minister said "we find sexual reproduction a little repugnant"

Re: TNG S2: Q Who

So Guinan might have crane style Q-Fu master skills eh? I don't recall that ever being revisited. Makes you wonder ... if she has Q's powers, why doesn't she use them? Maybe on the ship she adheres to some kind of rule that means she cannot interfere with lesser species ... possibly the most important one she has. They could call it something like a 'First Instruction'. Or an Alpha Law. A Principal Principle. A Pr ... ok you get it.

Re: TNG S2: The Measure of a Man

Absolutely one of my favourite pieces of science fiction, let alone TNG. Intensely moving and powerful, we really get to see that shakespearian training come to the fore in Stewart, and that seems to also invite Frakes to really step up as well. When he turned Data off, it was truly chilling.

"Well there it sits!". I swear someone is cutting onions in the room every time I watch that part

Re: TNG S7: Masks

Yet *another* hour in which we have to sit through one of the main cast members trying to prove to themselves, by using US as innocent-victim vehicles, that they really ARE actors, who, you know, can act, and have range, and do voices, and things and stuff.

J**** effing C*****!!

Patrick Stewart doing his ludicrous Cockney-peasant-with-a-broken-nose-that-never-healed routine a few episodes earlier didn't suffice, I guess. Spiner YET AGAIN had to show us his, uhh.....gifts? Bloody narcissists.

And and awful and boring incoherent total-clusterblank of an episode. What were they thinking?!! Zero point two-five stars.

Re: TNG S7: Thine Own Self

The Troi plot was...Utterly...Absurd. It should have been given to us gradually over a five-year arc, with, finally!, completed requirements, tests passed, and a promotion granted. The facts that she's promoted to Commander, and that she outranks Data, and that Data has to call her "sir" are all laughable, and actually damaging to the spirit of the show.

The entire episode should have been the Data story, with significantly more time spent showing us (a) Data slowly recovering, regaining his capacities, and actually realizing that he's regaining them---How DID he recover, anyway? Did his diagnostic and repair routines eventually auto-engage?---and (b) Scientist Data deducing the cause of the illness and concocting the cure. And perhaps even (c) Data continuing to impress (and frighten?) the villagers with his abilities. That would have been fun.

Unforgivably, at the end, the viewer is TOTALLY screwed out of the satisfaction of witnessing the recovery of the villagers and, foremost, the villagers' subsequent shame upon learning the truth about Data and about what actually had been occurring:

-Did Gia, her dad, and the teacher/doctor hold a meeting and offer a heartfelt explanation and debriefing to everyone?

-Was the obnoxious fat blacksmith who years later would buy Frank Costanza's moth-ridden beachwear charged with murder? Did learning the truth and realizing that he had jumped to conclusions and had killed an innocent man who was actually trying to save everyone's lives shatter him to his core and result in him rebuilding himself into a better man?

-Did Gia grow up happy and healthy and name her son Jayden after the noble misunderstood creature who saved her father's life?

-Did the teacher/doctor patent the microscope ($$$!) and "discover" and become her planet's leading scientific mind and authority on radiation?

This episode was very interesting and entertaining, but it could have been so, SO much more.

Re: TNG S3: The Vengeance Factor

The climax is utterly absurd. As others surely have questioned (I'll vent first and peruse after), isn't Riker guilty of employing excessive force against Uta, and therefore guilty of murder? Why not continue to stun her. It clearly was affecting her. Keep zapping until she collapses. Or perhaps direct Worf to enclose her in a containment field. They've done this with other humanoids. And the guy that Uta was trying to kill: why didn't he run away, and why did Riker emplore him to sit still?! And why do most of the gatherers look, dress, and act just like Bender from The Breakfast Club?!

Re: VOY S3: False Profits

Dudes. This episode was so sad. Janeway tries to bend the prime directive yet somehow leaves the replicator and ferengi gadgets on the planet which the populace is seen using on the final act.

Great job janeway. Now these guys got technology of at least 2000 further than they got in that place. Also it's not like it's her job to police the delta quadrant for all we know the borg, kazon, vidians, trabe could all set shop on this planet.
