Re: DS9 S5: The Begotten

The comparison of every character the same actor has played is an interesting idea.

Doing Vaughn Armstrong would be quite the undertaking.

Re: DS9 S5: The Darkness and the Light

Keiko just HAD to have Kira living *with* them because having her spawn a mere few decks away was so unbearable for Keiko and her selfishness that Kira had to literally be put out of her own home, and now with Kira about to pop, Keiko is light years away?

Re: DS9 S5: Rapture

Considering Picard's intense interest in the Bajorans stated in the pilot, it's a little glaring that Picard wouldn't have detoured the Enterprise to partake in this Federation joining ceremony.

It's not like Picard hasn't done such a thing before, Starfleet's wishes be damned...he dropped everything for Galen's agenda in "The Chase", and that was a lot more than a brief one-off detour.

Re: TNG S5: Ensign Ro

So in TNG-era medicine, a person still has to power through something like a common cold for days?

Re: DS9 S3: Facets

I think this episode might have worked better if the Zhina'tara, instead of being a rite that all Trill undergo, were instead more of a subversive ritual. Basically like a mindmeld in the ENT era instead of a mindmeld in the TOS/TNG era.

Re: DS9 S5: The Ascent

"It seems to me that “Things Past” must have opened an even deeper well of sadness within him."

Perhaps. In that episode, Kira forgives him (kinda) but with the caveat that this was a one time deal. His "I hope so" answer is a sheepish cop-out, because if he worked for the Cardassians for the better part of a decade, he knows it wasn't.

And so do we, the audience....we've seen Chain Of Command and Tribunal.

It plays as somewhat of a flip from "Necessary Evil", but Kira's treachery in that episode was not from a position of power, so it's hardly the same, and Odo knows it.

Re: DS9 S5: Nor the Battle to the Strong

There was a ceasefire though at the end of AR...and at the end of *this* episode, it is stated that the ceasefire is "back on".

I thought Gowron reinstated the Khitomer Accords at the end of Apocolypse Rising.

Why is the Klingon still attacking the Federation...did I miss something?

Re: DS9 S3: The Die Is Cast

I never really liked the Eddington character, but to his credit (and expanding on what Elliot said), he immediately admitted his sabotage to his supeior officer because he felt it was the right thing to do (his future duplicity a season later notwithstanding), while Sisko couldn't muster up the same with *his* superior officer, instead cowardly "hanging up" on him.

Re: DS9 S4: Little Green Men

Elliot said:

"Question: when did the Ferengi go from hostile (if pathetic) foreign power (c.f. “Rascals”) to friendly neighbour that can appear over Earth without incident?"

By this point we've had "The Nagus" and "Prophet Motive".

Sisko's cordial dealings with the Nagus in that interim have likely thawed things at least to a point where questions are asked first.

Also, Starfleet *is* expecting the arrival of their first Ferengi cadet ever.

Re: DS9 S4: Little Green Men

Chris said:

"The way I always try to rationalise this sort of thing in Star Trek, is to invoke the ancient humanoids from TNG's 'The Chase'. But even if all humanoid life was seeded, the idea that the lifeforms and cultures on each planet developed at the same rate, to within a few hundred years, still doesn't add up. "

It's not impossible that, if not for the Dark Ages, humans might have been at the current technology level of 2020 by, say, 1500.

Re: VOY S1: Cathexis

Whatever this technology is that made an entire brain and its mental content able to roam airborne would have helped in "Our Man Bashir" when they were frantically trying to find computer storage for five brain patterns.

At the end of the trial, Q "makes Quinn mortal.

Was it ever made clear why Quinn couldn't do that for himself? Perhaps not from "in the comet", but why not pretty much any time after Voyager beamed him aboard?

"Crying? Seriously? The Doctor programmed the woman's holographic body to shed tears? That's.......interesting. "

As the initial creation scene demonstrated, Denara's hologram physiology was literally built from from the onside out.

Re: VOY S1: Phage

The fuss in sickbay mostly seems to be Neelix's lack of oxygen and his blood gas numbers, but...shouldn't there have also been massive internal bleeding from Neelix's now dead-ending pulmonary artery? Or are we to assume that the Vidiins "phaser" cauterizes the wound, in which case such damage would seem to create difficulty in putting his, or any lungs back anyways.

Re: DS9 S5: Things Past

I kind of wish that when the Changelings altered Odo, it had essentially amounted to "freezing" him into his usual solid form (and somehow mitigating the "every 16 hours" problem), but still being inherently a shapeshifter, rather than "making him human", which strikes me as beyond their powers...Changelings were never peddled as Q-like.

That would have helped here, insofar as explaining the technobabble-fueled crisis of the week, and also made the mechanics of his eventual restoration a few episodes later make a lot more sense.

If Odo is, instead, truly human after his "punishment", it's hard to buy that Junior could fuse with him and restore him, unless we presume that it just as easily could have fused with, say, Julian instead and turned *him* into a Changeling.

Re: TNG S3: The Ensigns of Command

The dialogue said that the gathering was in Ardrian's home, and in barges Gosheven, totally uninvited.

This society seemed pretty totalitarian. The Enterprise shoudln't have wasted so much time placating it.

Looking at some slight charring of the paint on the shuttle, and the diagnosis is "a nearby antimatter explosion" (!) was, intentionally or not, rather hilarious.

It's said here that a shuttle "doesn't have warp capability".

But later, in "Relics" they give Scotty a shuttle.Wouldn't that pretty much strand Scotty in the solar system with the Dyson sphere?

Re: PIC S1: Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2

The use of contemporary slang ("pissing me off", "did you f**k any of them") is beyond tiresome.

It;s 2399. It would be like people in 2020 still using jargon from the era of Jamestown and Plymouth.
