Re: VOY S5: Timeless

Who fucking CARES if they made a mild continuity error with Seven getting drunk? Does that REALLY spoil a great episode like this? You fucking nerds don't deserve nice things.

Re: Star Trek: Nemesis

I just saw this for the first time after avoiding Insurrection and this film for years. I fully expected to dislike it. I figured this would be as bad as Star Trek V. I'm going to differ with many of the 100+ comments above and say I truly enjoyed this. Flaws, sure, but I liked it a lot. I thought the story, pacing and dialogue were the best of the TNG films.

I'd rather grimace at Tom Hardy's Picard not resembling Patrick Stewart than wrestle with the mere existence of a Borg Queen.

Re: ENT S2: Cogenitor

Star Trek Enterprise Policy?

It's okay to make friends and exchange ideas with the people in charge of a society.

Just don't get involved with their permanently enslaved underclass.

Only make FIrst Contact with the people that matter.

Re: TOS S3: Let That Be Your Last Battlefield

In my interpretation of this story, not all of the people of Charon are dead. The ones who stoked the hate and profited from it escaped to a new world before the civilization burned itself to the ground. Bear this in mind when politicians or religious leaders of any persuasion malign the people of their opposition.

That secret disdain in your heart for people of a certain type? You're getting played.

Re: TOS S3: The Empath

I thought this was awful. There have been some bad episodes, but this one ranks as the worst in my book. Painstaking to watch. I enjoyed the variety of reviews of this episode. Some think it's horrid, others think it's peak TOS. :)

Re: VOY S4: The Killing Game

What's with all the rude "YOU PEOPLE" message from overy-defensive Voyager fanatics who can't accept that some people didn't like this episode? Why is this, an episode about Nazi aliens, the episode that YOU PEOPLE are so defensive about?

Re: VOY S4: Scientific Method

Ridiculously low core by Jammy. He starts about ten different sentences with "I must admit I enjoyed..." and the review is mostly positive, but gives it 1.5 because someone said "DNA" at one point.

Re: TOS S3: Spectre of the Gun

I thought this was a fair though not great episode if for no other reason that the fact, noted by other commenters, that this episode had a Twilight Zone feel to it. It pretty much was Roddenberry meets Serling. I think it rates about 2.5 stars.
I haven't read all the comments on this page but I'm a bit surprised that no one seems to have mentioned that DeForest Kelly had been in two separate remakes of Gunfight at the O.K. Corral prior to this one.
I have to kind of suspect that they had a partial Western stage set up and the writers were asked to somehow incorporate it into an episode. The fact that Kelly had been in two previous incarnations of the O.K. Corral had to be the genesis for this episode.
It's main weakness does seem to be that there just wasn't enough dialogue to fill 50 minutes so there seemed to be a bit of fluff here and there. And the Western characters all had a cardboard cutout quality to them but that may have been the intention to add to the surreal effect.
As for the commenter that objected to Spock knowing about a 400 year old piece of Earth history....come on, it's Spock. It fits his character perfectly. He's half Vulcan, a species that is mentally superior to humans. And he is half human, so he would have a special interest in humanity. And the guy was a genius by any standards, so yeah he has Earth history down pat. And if all that isn't enough he under goes ponn farr just once every seven years. Just think how much smarter the average guy would be if he didn't spent so much time and energy on sex.
And in the final, errie shootout scene did any one notice that the off camera wind machine had to be turned up to high and was blowing 90 degrees to the path of the supposed bullets? This was because the shots were being fired point blank at the actors and they needed a high wind speed to deflect any blast debris away from them.
And I have to say the best comment on this page was given by the guy that said, "There is no spoon." Perfect!
Finally, for what it's worth I have noticed that there is another commenter on this site named Greg so I have changed my nick to Original Greg.

Re: TNG S5: Cause and Effect

Data message was ultimately somewhat unnecessary.

In every iteration through the loop, the crew was already changing their behavior and decisions based on the effects of "Deja-Vu".

If they had been stuck long enough, they would have, even if inadvertently, made a "butterfly effect" decision that would have let them escape.

Notice during the meetings where they discuss the possibility of reversing course to avoid the disaster. The first time it is Picard who says reversing course could be what causes the disaster. The next iteration, it is Riker who says this.

Eventually there could have been an iteration where they actually reversed course, or an iteration where Geordi finally fell off the catwalk and damaged the ship's engines forcing them to stop and avoid the disaster altogether.

Re: DS9 S6: Far Beyond the Stars

A Springy and William B:

I do agree that Pabst was not a racist. He had no problem with SIsko being a writer in the office. He just saw it as unrealistic for the captain to be black. And as a businessman, he is right-in that it would be unrealistic to the readers and even determinantal to the sales of his sci-fi magazine. Most people are not out to "make a statement" or shake up norms, they just want to have a job. And Pabst realised that his approving the story may very well end up with him no longer having a job.

Even when it comes down to the racist, violent police, I don't see them as monsters, rather as misinformed. If you genuinely believe that blacks are violent, lazy, shifty (add your own adjective), then you are misinformed. Those who see that these things are not true, and are so angry to have their illusions shattered that they resort to violence, these are worse

Re: VOY S6: Collective

Actually, I have a question maybe someone here can answer: you know how the actors who play alien characters like Worf or Garek are interviewed and say that it takes hours to get the makeup on? How does that work with children? I mean, I know that later the makeup is far less once the kids join Voyager and are de-Borged, but here it would take I would think at least 2 hours to put the makeup on, and say 1 hour to take off. That would leave only one or two hours for filming (as kids can only work short days) It must make it REALLY hard for the producers to make an episode like this! **That's why kid actors on the show who play aliens either have only a few minutes of airtime, or like Naomi Wildman, only have a couple easily to apply and remove bumps on their forehead**

I mean I think Ichib and the other big boy are really over 18 (the actors I mean), but the girl and the twins have to be minors. The twins had no speaking parts in this, but the girl had a fairly big role. I guess they filmed it over the course of a few days and just had to spend most of the day on other things to film?
