Re: ENT S3: Chosen Realm

I think this episode was an excellent counterpoint to Season 1's Dessert Crossing. But where that episode showed the Israeli Palestinian conflict from the point of view of the Palestinians, this one shows us the same conflict from the point of view of the Israelis. What options does Archer have when religious fanatics show up threatening to massacre all heretics? The more that the Enterprise helps these fanatics, the more they literally blow up in their faces. But whereas Dessert Crossing skimmed over Israel's legitimate security concerns, this episode skims over some of the more subtle nuances for why the Palestinians are so willing to blow themselves up for their faith. It's a fair trade which helps to balance the series appropriately.

Re: DS9 S4: The Muse

Reading through these comments I can see that people really hated this episode. But I thought it had some good moments! I've always thought that Jake as a writer was kind of a joke since he's never actually written anything. But here he actually comes out of his shell and nearly finishes a book! Who cares if the plot device was a little droll? The point was to get Jake writing and I think it worked.

The B plot was the weak point in the episode. I like Lwaxana Troi. She's always seemed like a fun and kooky aunt who comes over some times and spices things up. But I have to agree with the guy who said that her actions here were wrong. She's the non-custodial parent taking to the space lanes with her infant in contravention of the law. In our society, that would be grounds for an amber alert. But I guess alls well that ends well. I give it 2.5 stars.
