Re: DS9 S3: The Die Is Cast

As a former casual viewer of post-TNG series, I am doing a complete watch through of all Trek shows. Just finished Voyager. I admit, I found DS9 to be a little dark and depressing for my tastes, especially after the bright and colorful world of TNG.

However, these past two episodes are INCREDIBLE! Some of the best Trek has to offer. I LOVE the scene when the Defiant departs. Just...excellent. These two episodes are amazing in every way.

Re: VOY S7: Natural Law

I lol'd when Chakotay said he had mapped the area and then pointed to his little sand scribbling of a circle with a squiggly line through it and a rock on the side. Cartography has gone to crap in the future apparently.

Jeff, I think you're taking things too seriously and making some strawman arguments here. Just because people find the episode bad or lackluster doesn't mean they're misogynistic. It just means...they don't like the episode.

Re: ENT S3: Harbinger

I agree with the guy who said Reed is pretty lame thus far. He seems to always be complaining. Worf or Odo would knock the crap out of him. I can hear him whining about his beatdown now, lol.

Liked the choreography of the fights though. I keep rewatching when T'Pol blocks that guy's punch and takes him down. Jolene did great in that scene. She's no Jeri Ryan but she's not just eye candy for this show.

Re: VOY S7: Author, Author

I am about 10 minutes into this episode and there's a scene where Tom, B'Elanna and Kim are discussing the EMH's novel. Anyway, Paris says something about not wanting to bring it up since the Doc considers it a masterpiece. B'Elanna does this little laugh that makes Tom laugh a little too and I REALLY think this was a blooper type deal that they left in, which I LOVE. Like the actress who plays Torres cracked up but it didn't ruin the scene. I don't know -- I just think I have an eye for it and I love it when directors leave stuff like this in because it adds a legitimacy and authenticity to the scene.

Re: DS9 S3: Equilibrium

Eh, I don't get the Trill. So Dax is the symbiont and Jadzia is the host -- OK. So who is Kurzon Dax -- the former host? And when the former host dies, does part of who he was become a part of the symbiont, and thus a part of the new host?

Sisko refers to Jadzia as "old man" whom I guess refers to the former -- wait, I don't know. Former host or symbiont or both?

So do symbionts ever die? And why are they so special that they get new bodies?

I didn't understand a lot of the episode, I guess because of my lack of knowledge regarding the race. Plus I was sleepy and DS9 has a rather deliberate pacing, not that that's bad. It's...relaxing, I suppose. That's good.

Re: ENT S3: Impulse

I liked the ending when I saw where it was going, but then I was surprised because I didn't know whether it was a fusion of real life and T'Pol's lingering mental condition or if all of it was just a dream from when she was first brought into sickbay.

But then I remembered that Trip and Archer were discussing movie night at the start of the episode before T'Pol entered. Trip recommended they watch a comedy to help "boost morale" and then T'Pol enters and Trip only mentions they're watching a movie, not specifying the genre.

So we see them watching a movie towards the end and it's some gritty 40's detective movie and not the comedy Trip had mentioned earlier to Archer. So suffice to say that T'Pol never left sickbay.

I would have liked it if at the end, when she's fighting Vulcan zombies, if she were actually fighting the crew. It would have made for a better ending and maybe given a little more insight into exactly what the Vulcans had suffered. But what do I know? Still a decent episode.
