Re: DS9 S2: Profit and Loss

The ending sure left a lot of loose threads. Will Odo be in trouble for turning the prisoners loose? Is no one going to care that this Gul just vanished on DS9 and was never seen again, and was Garak really going to kill the prisoners if he hadn't shown up? Plus it has already been established that the Cardassians were supposed to free all prisoners; remember the episode where Kira goes to rescue some and the Cardassians apologize and release all of them? Why are they still holding prisoners in this episode? I always enjoy a Quark episode but the writing seemed sloppy and rushed for this one.

Re: DS9 S2: Paradise

Oh bullshit. These were all educated people, members of Star Fleet, the idea that they would go along with that insane psychopath, torturing people and not trying to leave is ridiculous. That they would choose to stay there after learning she basically kidnapped all of them, just no. The ending of this episode made me so angry, and that smug look on her face as they beamed up. They should throw her out an airlock on the way back to the station.

Re: DS9 S2: Invasive Procedures

I thought the premise was kind of ridiculous. They evacuated the entire station for this seemingly not very dangerous"space storm" and not one single security officer stayed behind to protect the station? Aside from Odo but still, talk about leaving the station vulnerable. I also thought it was uncharacteristic of Odo to let Quark get away with whatever he did to disable the security checkpoint. He knew Quark was up to something but he didn't even bother to check? Also not a single other civilian besides Quark chose to stay? Sorry, it's all really absurd, and that's before we even get into the main plot which is apparently that a couple of Klingons can easily take over the station and hold everyone hostage, and the crazy Bejoran who came to steal the symbiant. This was probably one of my least favorite episodes of the series.

Re: DS9 S1: The Storyteller

THESE are the people who defeated the Cardassians? No, these villagers are not Bajorans. This was a primitive middle ages era civilization on some random planet; someone must have got the scripts mixed up with a random TNG episode.

Re: VOY S6: Blink of an Eye

I thought it'd be interesting to make some time calculations based on the events in the show. Seven says 1 second that passes on the ship, 1 day passes on the planet.

The doctor was gone about 3 years. So aboard the ship they spent about 18 minutes trying to get him back.

When the doctor stops Goetana-Retz in the hallway, instead of speedily escorting him to his ship, to ask him to look up his son, that takes 20 seconds, or halted him getting home for almost 3 weeks while Voyager was being assailed from the surface. I always wondered why no one had the anxiety of time passing so quickly while he was there since getting him back as soon as possible would be best for him.

Goetana-Retz gets on the radio and the woman says the frequency hasn't been used by the space agency in 50 years. If the space agency abandoned that frequency soon after his flight to Voyager, he was on Voyager for about 5 hours.

Now assuming a lot of things like this civilization progressed like ours and Voyager arrived in what looks like what could be 2000 years ago in our history and then going from those primitive dwellings to going into space, Voyager was above the planet for about 8.3 days.

And Chacotay is pretty much right when someone says Goetana should've been back home for 10 minutes and he says that's about an year and a half.

I could be off on some of these. I was just curious to see how the writers handled the time and it seemed like they did a pretty good job. I just think the changing of the season was too fast and I didn't even bother with the intervals between shellings from the surface.

Re: VOY S6: Pathfinder

Reg said Voyager so much in this episode I realized the name of the ship is always referred to as simply, Voyager. As opposed to calling ships and adding, "the" beforehand like, The Enterprise, The Pegasus, The Bozeman, etc. I guess saying, The Voyager just doesn't sound right.

Re: VOY S4: Retrospect

This is the season where Seven is the LeBron James of Voyager. With some great support from the Doctor and Janeway, she is pretty much responsible for carrying the crew in making some good episodes. But if she's having an off day, the show kind of falls apart for a few episodes.

Re: VOY S7: Shattered

One thing still confuses me. Why did Janeway and Chakotay not die years later while Naomi and Icheb grew up on Voyager? They didn't really do anything to change the future, so what changed?

Re: VOY S6: Equinox, Part II

I think I've watched through the Voyager series a dozen times but somehow I had never seen these two episodes before. I don't think I was missing much though, I really didn't like this story. I find it very hard to believe that an entire Starfleet crew would turn into a bunch of murderous savages no matter how tough a time they were having, and it's even harder for me to believe that Janeway would turn into such a complete lunatic that the Voyager crew were on the verge of mutiny; why would Chakotay and Tuvok not have relieved her of command? I mean she almost murdered that crewman and was endangering Voyager, then she takes an innocent alien vessel by force, really?

Also what in the world was the deal with her following the Equinox into that planet's atmosphere, is she a complete moron? They obviously wanted her to follow them, it was clearly going to damage Voyager, and for what? It's not like the Equinox was going anywhere. They couldn't stay in the planet's atmosphere forever. This was just a bad episode, I found the one where she and Paris turned into lizards more believable.

Re: VOY S5: Relativity

I really enjoyed this episode, but Braxton was an idiot. His only goal was to prevent Janeway from stranding him in the 20th century, so why blow up Voyager and kill the entire crew when he had all of time to work with and so many better ways to do it? If he wasn't such an idiot he could have simply gone to the array an hour before it pulled Voyager and the Maquis into the Deltra quadrant and blown IT up. Not only would that prevent him from ever being stranded, it would also save the Ocampa just as before while saving Voyager from being lost.

Sure it would erase all the good things they had done in the Delta quadrant as well but he didn't care about any of that. I guess his hatred of Janeway was supposed to make him want to kill her though, but he still could have done that without wiping out the entire ship. Just jump to some earlier point in her timeline, before she even joined Star Fleet. As a member of the time police I'm not sure why he thought he could get away with it anyway.

Re: VOY S5: Someone to Watch Over Me

I don't know how much a gigaquad is but I presume it's a lot. We can put an entire encyclopedia on a single DVD in this century complete with videos and sounds. What in the world was in all that data that 7 recorded?

Re: VOY S5: Timeless

Chakotay's line about Voyager crashing into the ice at full impulse, that was a dumb line and completely unnecessary. He could have simply said the lower decks were crushed by the weight of the ice, which is a real thing that happens. Planes have been found crashed in arctic regions where after decades of snow and ice piling up on them become buried and crushed flat. Several people mentioned all this already but yeah, if they had crashed at the speed Chakotay said the ship would have been completely obliterated. Also I'm not sure but were those supposed to be spider webs hanging in the corridors, maybe not because that would be silly.

Borg implants sure do get great reception though. He talked about how he could only send a short message and had to do it at the exact right time so 7 could figure out what it meant, but then in the end we also find out he sent a full log entry to himself in glorious high definition...um? So if he could do that why did he not just send a nice big message to them a few days, weeks or even months before the accident going into detail about what happened and how to avoid it, not to mention maybe sending them some new ideas on getting home thanks to having 15 years of advanced knowledge at his disposal. Nitpicks aside I really enjoyed this episode though.

Re: VOY S4: One

I thought it was weird how simply being asleep would prevent radiation burns. The end was kind of silly too; with a ship that size it is impossible that a single person would run out of oxygen in just ten minutes. Also space is an excellent insulator, things just don't instantly turn ice cold.

Re: VOY S4: Demon

It was a goofy episode but I think half a star is kind of harsh, it wasn't that bad. Still, why did they wait until they were almost completely out of power before they went looking for some. Janeway must be like Kramer in The Dealership, driving the ship around until the needle is below E to see how far it can go. More DNA magic too, maybe this fluid can duplicate DNA but what about their clothes, and later on the ship itself? Speaking of later, watching this episode makes me sad now knowing what is going to happen to the duplicates.

Re: VOY S4: The Omega Directive

This episode really annoyed me. What was the point of going through all that and destroying the molecules, those aliens are just going to make more the first chance they get. All they did was delay them. Janeway should have let Seven stabilize them, that way the aliens could have used them safely. Besides what right does the Federation have to tell other civilizations what to do? The Prime Directive is totally worthless if they can just "rescind" it any time they feel like.

Re: VOY S4: Vis A Vis

Also how did the alien take the wrench off of the holodeck? Surely they were holographic just like the car, garage and everything else. Did Tom actually replicate a set of real wrenches to carry to the holodeck with him? Why would he do that? Does he keep a toolbox full of antique tools in his quarters?

So Tom was able to figure out how to make the Coaxial Warp Drive work safely and reliably, and in addition they were even able to modify one of Voyager's own shuttles to use it. So there you go, they have their golden ticket home and... it's never mentioned ever again.

Re: VOY S4: The Killing Game

How does a nomadic species with no planet of their own, wandering around thinly spread out in spaceships, manage to even build these spaceships? How did they ever learn to build them in the first place when they don't seem interested in anything but being primitive savages. Apparently they have this strong instinct to hunt, so who did they hunt before they left their original planet? Each other? This doesn't seem like a species that would have ever survived, let alone build ships with warp technology. How do they even have doctors or scientists, who teaches their kids? Wait do they even have kids? We've never seen any on their ships nor any females yet they don't have a home planet...ugh. They're one the silliest one-dimensional villains this show has ever produced.

Re: VOY S4: Prey

Janeway was a moron in this episode. How many times has she nearly gotten the entire crew killed or sacrificed a way home to help complete strangers or obey alien laws? It's too bad Chakotay didn't take command of Voyager in the beginning, they'd have probably been home by now.
