Re: TNG S1: The Neutral Zone

Watch Q Who. Data states the Borg damage in that episode is "identical to what happened to the outposts along the neutral zone."

Re: TNG S1: The Neutral Zone

For me, 3 1/2 stars out of four. The first of the Borg episodes. And kudos to the writers for the subtle foreshadowing and introduction of the greatest of Star Trek villains, the Borg. As for the other subplot, our greatest villains generally appear to us when we are focused elsewhere on something relatively banal and we are feeling superior and smug, like thinking how advanced we are relative to another group of people. Looks like pretty damn good writing to me and yet another reason I love Star Trek.

Re: TNG S1: The Neutral Zone

I've always enjoyed this episode. Both sub plots. I always thought that this episode contained the first appearance of the Borg. As I recall, the outposts were scooped up with no trace. Neither Star Fleet nor the Romulans knew why or were capable of doing this. So the purpose to me was so much more than just showing the Romulans were back. It was foreshadowing for the entrance of the Borg.

Re: TOS S2: Amok Time

I like Jammer's review, this episode is fun. But I also agree with Mike who wrote in 2013 about the seriousness of this episode to Star Trek canon. I was 12 to 15 years old when TOS originally aired. TOS was my favorite show back then. And this episode was one of the best for me. And after having to wait for season two through the whole summer! Great payoff! This episode is 4 star TOS for sure in my opinion. The big three relationship and the love they had for one another is on full display here. Nurse Chapel's care for Spock is really touching. The twist at the end is awesome. And like Jammer said, one of the best TOS moments ever is when Spock finds Kirk is still alive. I also agree that battle or sex would release Spock's hormones back to normal. So battle did it. I didn't find the plot trivial at all. I love this one and think its one of the very best TOS episodes ever.

Re: TOS S2: Friday's Child

I love Jammer's reviews. Often so spot on. But I do agree with Paul that you were too hard on this one. I find I enjoy watching this episode again and again. I'm not sure why. Maybe for one thing, like Grant said, the chemistry between McCoy and the chief's wife. Mac-coy, the child is yours. I love that. And the colorful visuals of the Cappelan village and clothing. And the unremitting evil of the early Klingons. And I gotta say, the Cappelans are not boring. A very different brutal culture. Lots of great humor and writing here too. Overall, one of my favorite TOS episodes.
