Re: VOY S6: Pathfinder

Everyone, from 4 stars to none, hits the same chord - the contact scene was flawless. If you’re at all invested in these characters, then one of your favorite moments of the series is having everyone realize what’s happening while Captain Janeway somehow maintains her command bearing and utters the biggest understatement of the series: “We’ve been waiting a long time for this moment.”

If I had one drawback, it wouldn’t involve the aim of the stream. It would be everyone, including 7, instantly trust the authenticity of the communication. How many times have they been trapped with honey? But 47 minutes is what it is and really, Voyager was the object and not the subject.

Re: TNG S5: The Inner Light

Another small but bang-on part is the "administrator" deafly listening to Batai's explanation of their tree and then hollowly saying, "Perhaps I shall recommend a symbolic tree in all my communities." Man, if he didn't sound like any politician you've ever endured!

Re: TNG S5: The Inner Light

My favorite bit that hasn't been mentioned -
"We're umm ... we're umm ... ... we're married." [Immediately buries his face in the soup.]

Elliott:
"There are only a couple of actors in the whole franchise's history who could I think rise to such a challenge: Patrick Stewart, Andrew J. Robinson, Kate Mulgrew and maybe Robert Picardo. That's about it."

Well ... Avery Brooks watched Jake Sisko outage him and become an old man.

Re: TNG S4: Devil's Due

I do think it's funny that Elliot enjoyed the characters being "freed from Roddenberry" ... Since he supervised the script production.

Re: TNG S4: Devil's Due

It's just entertainment, and the old STP2 script was used due to the short writer's strike. If it was MY Enterprise, Ardra would have had the keys shortly after showing up in my room.

Re: ENT S3: The Xindi

I must admit that I get a chuckle out of all your comments that trash the writers for their almost-sex scenes, as if it's some sort of transgression that can't be forgiven. After all, Captain Kirk was certainly took a vow of chastity ...

Re: TNG S5: The Inner Light

Surprised no one mentioned this -- the only disappointing part of this episode for me occurs years later at the end of "Generations."

You'll remember that Picard and Riker are rummaging through the wreck of the Enterprise-D. I think everyone forgot about this episode, because there's absolutely NO WAY Picard leaves that vessel forever without his Kataanian flute. Easy to pack out as well, as opposed to a big book or a big ceramic head ...

Re: ENT S2: Marauders

Hit and miss, but I like the allegory of the pre-Federation supplying and training the local fighters. It plays as a a good prequel to the TOS Cold War themes between the Fed and Klingons.

Re: ENT S2: Shockwave, Part II

I really liked the timing of T'Pol's last line. And Archer's response was perfect. Nice scene overall, but especially because T'Pol can't resist the urge to get the last argument in ... only to have it acknowledged!

Re: DS9 S7: Take Me Out to the Holosuite

It's amusing that a lot of people can't "suspend disbelief" over the physical aspects of the holosuite, but have no problem believing that everyone would still work and lead productive lives if holosuites existed.

Max Grodenchik -- played high school baseball against him. He was an outstanding athlete.

Re: DS9 S6: In the Pale Moonlight

"... and all it cost was the life of one Romulan senator, one criminal, and the self-respect of one Starfleet officer."

Best line of the episode.

Re: DS9 S5: Nor the Battle to the Strong

It's essentially Corporal Fife's story from James Jones' "The Thin Red Line." Not a bad take at all, other than the somewhat wooden script and action for the background characters. You can't improve on great material, you can just hope to do it justice.

Jay - I don't know about Quark, but Armin Shimerman was off working on "Buffy".
