Re: VOY S1: Eye of the Needle

Well, Nana Visitor didn't exactly impress me with her bawling in "Battle Lines" when Opaka dies. Likewise, Marina Sirtis helped Troi become more and more engaging as TNG went along with "The Loss" and "Face of the Enemy".
So there!

Re: DS9 S6: In the Pale Moonlight

Great episode, but 1 question:
Sisko says that Vreenak was killed a few days (2 or 3, I forget) after he left DS9. When they last saw each other, Vreenak told Sisko that he was going to expose his scheme to everyone. So, what was he doing during the 2 or 3 days before his death? I would think that would be plenty of time to expose & prove someone's crimes to the universe.

Re: VOY S4: The Killing Game

Nic,
In "The Way of the Warrior," we saw Starfleet ships dock at DS9 after that battle, so we can assume they were able to offer any repair work that was needed (even if it wasn't mentioned on screen). TOS & TNG often did repair work to their Enterprises off-screen as well, because, like DS9, the audience knew they had access to Federation supplies.
Voyager did not, so that's what makes it a series-wide plot hole.

Re: VOY S4: The Gift

Oh, come on. This is science fiction. Kes may have had a 9 year life span, but they (the writers)surely could've found a way around it if they were smart (wasn't that even one of the plot points in "Before and After"?).
I'm fine with 7 of 9, I'm just still shocked that Kes was the one to go & not Neelix. I guess you had to have only 3 women in this ensemble.

Re: VOY S4: Year of Hell, Part II

So sad that all the dramatic potential we saw in "Before and After" was reduced to another use of the d@mn reset button here.

Re: VOY S3: Third Season Recap

I remember when Jeri Taylor said Voyager's 3rd season would have a more 'fun' tone in which the main players would 'embrace the adventure' that being stuck over 70 years from home brought to them.
I didn't give much thought to it at the time (probably because I basically gave up on Voyager matching TNG & DS9 by the end of its 2nd year), but having caught up some thanks to DVD & YouTube, I have to say that Taylor's words were basically a creative death sentence for the show, in the same way that Kevin Sorbo's view of what Andromeda should be doomed that show-& his career.

Agreed. It's not like Martin Luther King's death prevented others from fighting for civil rights.

Re: VOY S2: Basics, Part I

Call me crazy, but I would think that some people (like Hogan) would've started turning on Janeway once the crew was left on that planet. Basically all her decisions throughout the season regarding the Kazon (including tracking down Seska's kid) have led to what happens to the crew in this episode.

Re: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

The 4 TNG films may have been, shall we say, uninspired, but they were a lot more watchable than this crap.

Re: Star Trek: Nemesis

As far as I'm concerned, TNG ended with its great series finale, "All Good Things..."
The 4 films are simply excessive fodder as far as I'm concerned.

Re: VOY S3: Flashback

In Star Trek VI, TWO MONTHS pass between the explosion of Praxis and Gorkon's assassination.
In this episode, TWO DAYS pass between those two events.
That alone ruined the episode for me.

Re: DS9 S3: Through the Looking Glass

A nice, exciting episode with a wonderful performance from Avery Brooks. I've always wondered if he turned down his paycheck for this one since it gave him the chance to snog with both Nana Visitor & Terry Farrell (some guys have all the luck!).

Re: VOY S5: Dark Frontier

In terms of quality, TNG's Borg episodes were like Night of the Living Dead. Voyager's Borg episodes(and Dark Frontier is no exception) are more like House of the Dead.

Re: VOY S3: The Q and the Grey

Not that the series gave us anything truly stellar before this, but this is the episode which really turned me off Voyager.
So, if you want to visit the Q, all you have to do is fly into a star?
And, after the crew stops the Q civil war, Q doesn't send them home as thanks? Okaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Re: VOY S2: Threshold

At least "Genesis" was watchable(the sequence with Worf hunting Picard had me on the edge of my seat) with an ending that didn't make me feel insulting. "Threshold," on the other hand, is nothng but a gag-inducing mess that even Uwe Boll would hate.

Re: ANDR S2: Lava and Rockets

This episode is the perfect example of everything wrong with this show.
Sorbs certainly loves himself, as this episode proves.

Re: VOY S7: Renaissance Man

Not that I thought differently beforehand, but the fact that Voyager's penultimate episode is a standard, stand alone adventure is par for the course for this show, whereas both TNG's Preemptive Strike and DS9's Dogs of War were first-rate dramas with affecting ramifications.

Re: DS9 S7: What You Leave Behind

Although TNG has the best Trek finale, DS9's is still way ahead of the finales for Voyager, Enterprise, and the original series.

Whatever, dude.
Voyager was a watered-down version of TNG just like Friday the 13th was a watered-down version of Halloween.

Re: ANDR S2: The Things We Cannot Change

This episode epitomizes why Sorbs let power go to his head when he took control of the show and turned it into a love letter to himself.
Thankfully, he's faded into obscurity since Andromeda crashed and burned.
