Re: DS9 S7: Penumbra

And no matter how absurd, ludicrous, nonsense these things became (why the hell aliens would become free when magic words are read? Why Dukat became a Lord Sith with video-game superpowers in Season 6’s finale?), to any criticism people reply throwing back the easy magictechnobabble “they were powerful aliens that existed out of linearity”. Really? Is it that easy? So we can make any sort of story become good futuristic scifi just granting that we explain first that we are talking about all-mighty aliens?

Basically, Ric... if you are a critically thinking person with a high IQ, this stuff isn't okay and will bother you; and if you don't understand logical, good storytelling, then anything goes. Yee hAw!

Yeah, coz it was just a dozen weirdos who voted for him, right? Maybe if you started to listen to voters, instead of calling their views names, you wouldn't keep losing. Just a thought.

We don't think it is. It's a fact it is. It's a classic deus ex machina. Very lazy writing. Accept it.

Re: DS9 S5: Doctor Bashir, I Presume

Autism is a sickness only god (small g) can cure? Hmmm... Interesting how flawed the human race has to be to have someone write that dog shit.

I'm sure when you get a serious disease or infection that requires antibiotics, you just pray, right, Sean?

People with an IQ under 110 should be banned from having a computer.

We know what god did over the centuries for the sick and dying - and what he continues to do. ZIP.

Either god created the world as his personal entertainment (possible... in fact the Bible says he was bored and alone) - or he doesn't exist. I'm actually on the side of a possible creator - but you can pray all you like, "he" is doing jack squat to help you.

Re: Frequently Asked Questions

Also, the fact some of you harp on about the CGI is really shallow. Like TNG looks great... you know? Or should we write off the original series now as well? How much has that dated?

Re: Frequently Asked Questions

The only thing with B5 that hasn't aged well "lol" is the CGI / models. That's to be expected - and it didn't have an army of series fans to give it unlimited cash treatment.

As a fiction and as a piece of writing, it smokes DS9 and pretty much any TV fiction - and lest we forget that DS9 would not exist without B5 - because it was blatant plagiarism. JMS should have gone through with the lawsuit.

Re: DS9 S2: Rules of Acquisition

You need to come to Sweden, DLPB
-------
No, thanks. I dated a Swedish girl for 8 years and know a lot about your doomed country. It's as close to Trek as it's possible to get - and is currently being conquered by the religion of peace. Not surprisingly, your right wing party there is gaining in numbers year on year.

While I do agree that you have the maternity paternity issue much better there, that's a small plus for massive negatives. Over there, you have a man-hating society in general - a crazy feminazi country.

Actually, I invite every left wing "progressive" person to observe Sweden in order to see why it fails. The claptrap "studies" [no doubt that pseudoscience, 'gender studies'] you make reference to in your post is just that - claptrap. It's no surprise to me that your post seeks to diminish the problem with male suicides by supposing women are superior in their thinking. Go away.

Re: TNG S5: Conundrum

Dave in MN: I just had to sit back in awe at your ridiculous post.

You actually create a false equivalency (a massive one), admit in the same post that it is, in fact, a false equivalency... and yet this is your argument that Troi beating Data at chess is plausible? Really?

I have a more plausible explanation:

When this episode was made, chess computers could not challenge Grand Masters. It seemed like it might be a long time before they could. The writers were short sighted and thought what they were writing was realistic.

No. It was stupid. A good sci-fi writer would have factored in advances in computing. And data is not just a computer - he is a sentient AI.

Troi isn't beating Data. Not ever.

If you did ever finish watching B5, you'd probably have to address all your Trek ratings here. Drop them all by 2 stars likely.

Siege? More like Capitulation.

The premise makes no sense... and if the idiotic plan failed, they'd have lost the station entirely...

Preposterous nonsense, tbh. The very idea that Kira would be altered and dumped as some sort of dupe daughter is just silly. Too many plot holes as well.

Re: DS9 S2: Rules of Acquisition

A total missed opportunity to put some real teeth in this story and make it relevant to issues we face today with gender equality.
-----

I agree. I'm still waiting for men to get equal access and rights to their own children. Equal paternity leave compared to maternity leave. And women to get the same jail terms (for the same crimes) as men. Still waiting for society to address the fact men are way more likely to commit suicide and die younger in general.

Still waiting for women to do dangerous jobs and have equality down the sewers and digging up roads.

Still waiting for the media to shut up about a wage gap that's been debunked 1000000 times.

Re: DS9 S2: Rules of Acquisition

The only really stand-out moment was when Dax finds out that Pel is actually a woman. Up until Pel blurts out the secret Dax honestly thought she was a man. Yet, she had realized that Pel was in love with Quark. That means that Dax thought that Pel was homosexual and it didn't bother her. In fact, she didn't even see it as something worth making any kind of fuss over. That was nicely done - because it was subtle. They managed to put in a successful bit of social commentary without ramming it down the audiences' throats.
------

Nope. It was still being rammed down out throats - and it was still leftism. Never once will Trek be balanced. It's writers don't know how. Leftists don't know how. That's why they loot and bash and torch when someone becomes president and it isn't their candidate....

It's an entertaining episode, but just filled with none stop digs at capitalism [endless straw men]- even though communism has killed and enslaved far more - and as you rightly point out - the writers can't wait to collect their paycheck.

Absolutely spot on, NoPoet - and sadly it goes all the way to jail time for the same crime and so on. Sadly, if you compare 100 random facebook pages for men and women, you will see the differences.

Re: TNG S2: Up the Long Ladder

A clone is a clone, Chrome. It's really that simple. It will be an exact biological duplicate, so your "inorganic" stage makes less sense that it started out with - which was zero sense.

I liked the episode for some mild comedy. Highlight is

"MY GOD, Picard! The place is a bloody death trap!! Lightning bolts falling from the ceiling!"

I don't really see it.

It doesn't matter what you see. That's reality. A bloodthirsty genocidal enemy is not going to let the son of one of the main leaders of opposition roam about the station being a reporter.

The kid would have been used as blackmail. That's the nature of war.

Re: DS9 S6: Rocks and Shoals

What a great captain, Sisko is. In the middle of a war, he offers to save the enemy who have and are wiping out as many people as possible.

Just what is the plan there? And why isn't Sisko held accountable for that? If anything went wrong or any other people died, he'd be to blame.

It just seemed to me to allow the writers a get out clause... so that killing the JH wasn't seen as "un-Starfleet".

Re: DS9 S6: A Time to Stand

Agreed. And you know what? It annoys me that they plain refuse to kill characters on Trek unless the actor actually wants to leave the show.

I mean, was it really necessary to find reasons for Nog and Jake and everyone but a red shirt keep status quo? Wouldn't it have been gutsy if Nog and Jake had been killed by the Jem Hadar... or Jake killed in revenge against Sisko? At least something.

Instead, they just conjure up more and more ridiculous reasons to keep characters on the show - when a death or gutsy storyline would have amounted to a far bigger emotional punch.

Re: DS9 S6: A Time to Stand

Caedus, you are absolutely spot on - apart from missing the fact that it isn't Jake who's the moron. It's the writers.

Yes, they honestly do think this is a believable story and what would happen during war time with a genocidal load of conquerors. As I wrote in another part of this forum... Jake would be used as blackmail against Sisko.

They have his son - A tactical advantage.
