Re: ENT S2: Dawn

Jammer I'm not sure if you'll ever read my comment but from reading your review I see an unanswered question and as a Biologist I can help!

The act of sweating is one that reduces your body temperature, through the fact that hot energetic molecules composed of mostly water evaporate off of your skin. Trip misspoke slightly with his statement. It's true by not sweating your body would retain more water, hence you would become dehydrated slower. However by not sweating you also retain more heat within your body. As your internal body temperature rises biological catalysts called enzymes begin to work more slowly and eventually stop altogether without these enzymes our body simply can't function and we would die as all process would happen to slowly. So yes Trip is correct he is struggling more becuase he can't sweat but not because he is dehydrating faster but becuase his internal body temperature is rising quicker than Trip's as he can't release any heat through sweating.

I hope that makes sense!! If not I can explain further

Re: ENT S1: Dear Doctor

I think this is possibly one of the most controversial and perhaps most commented on Jammer reviews ever, I can't believe it's still going!!

Re: DSC S1: The War Without, The War Within

@Lobster Johnson

Thanks for the info!

@Ed

I think they are in a bit of a rush to get everything moving for the finale, so they really packed it in. One of the disadvantages of a serialized trek! Very difficult to pace

Re: DSC S1: The War Without, The War Within

Again, I enjoyed the first half of this episode massively, the second fell off a little.

Positives

- The longer we keep Michelle Yeoh the better, she brings something to the show that many others can't

- Tilly and Tyler's scene was very trekkian

- Captain Saru is fantastic, and it's nice to see a little more crew interaction

- I'm interested to see what they do, to sum up this war, imo it's getting exciting and hopefully, they don't fudge it up

- I really felt Cornwell did a good job in this episode, especially the scene where Starbase 1 is destroyed, that moment of silence very effective

- Sarek also put in a good performance

- People are saying here that Stamets has forgiven Tyler, I'm not assured of that, we shall see. I hope that don't just forget that happened

Negatives

- SMG and Tyler - I am pleased they didn't just forgive each other, and they left it in the right place but boy did that scene drag on.

- I really thought, no spore supply left, the destruction of that spore energy thing, could this be a plot device to get rid of the device? no, yet again they are re-used. This bugs me how many times is this spore drive going to save them or constantly be the same plot device. It would just be nice to have something fresh.

- I miss Issacs, this is something I'm unsure of should his name still be in the acting credits? If the character is really gone do they not take that out. I am unsure.

Re: DSC S1: What's Past Is Prologue

Agree with lots of the above but my absolute faveorite part of this episode was the discovery really working like a functioning unit, the minor characters lines really helped with this. And with Saru as captain it felt very Trekkian. Anyway enjoyable episode looking to see how the season finishes, hopefully not a time reset...

Re: DSC S1: Despite Yourself

I must say I do think everyone is just a being little harsh, seriously has anyone watched the first season of the TNG a lot of it is god damn awful, have you watched the fourth, fifth and sixth seasons a lot of its god damn phenomenal. A star trek TV reboot after all these years was going to have its kinks and hitches and I think the show has genuinely shown improvement between the start of season 1 and now, in a couple of seasons it could be fantastic. It might just need time to get there. This isn't me ranting about criticism that's expected and a lot of parts I agree with, but saying stuff like it has no depth I mean we are 11 episodes in were you expecting the Atlantic ocean already give it time to dig down. People watching two episodes then saying I'm stopping like please just give it a go Trek takes time to get where it needs to be. Season one isn't going to be perfect. I think the other thing people have been struggling with is some of the technological mistakes, I agree there have been some glaring issues and some more minor ones, I mean small things move past them all Trek series have plenty of issues with tech stuff especially with the holodeck, the big stuff the writers just need to be more careful with canon and I understand why that annoys you. Sorry, that's just been frustrating me a little.

To talk about this episode:

-Holy cow the Culber death caught me out. But from watching After Trek he ain't gone, perhaps some sort of MU relationship
- Captain Tilly was, in my opinion, Wiseman's best acting, great scene love the Scottish accent from the Cap
-SMG great combat scene in the lift
-Great costume work I loved the art of the MU
-Lots of questions, the emperor especially, not sure how long the arc will last perhaps the whole season perhaps a few episodes lets hope it doesn't drag the pacing has been perfect for the past few episodes
-Great Directing from Frakes
