Re: DS9 S5: Nor the Battle to the Strong

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.

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.

Re: VOY S2: Death Wish

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?

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.

Didn't Worf promise us at the end of "The Drumhead" that he would never be duped by someone like this again?

Re: TNG S2: Time Squared

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.

Re: TNG S2: Time Squared

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.

Re: PIC S1: The End Is the Beginning

"and is anyone else disappointed that they brought back an EMH but inexplicably did not have him played by Bob Picardo? "

The ones that look like him are relegated to mining.

Having this be *that* Doctor would require making the 66 year old Picardo look 40-ish again with CGI, and who thinks *that* Doctor would be Chewbacca-ing for the likes of this guy?

Re: PIC S1: Maps and Legends

At this point it would be preferable to declare Abrams/Kurtzman Trek to be another mirror universe whose evil is somewhere between the prime one and the mirror universe TOS and DS9 visited.

I'd like a show visiting the 2399 than unfolds directly from What You Leave Behind and Endgame, but discards anything from the subsequent novels that it wants to.

"Its based on Trek, but Picard's journey ended at Insurrection."

Insurrection turned Picard into a colossal hypocrite.

The Picard they tried to sell to us in Insurrection would have been a founding member of the Maquis.

Re: PIC S1: Maps and Legends

It's annoying how this brand of Trek has turned Klingons into montrosities, but turned Romulans into what Shran would call "pinkskins".

They're supposed to have green blood running through green blood vessels and pumping through gray hearts.

Re: PIC S1: Remembrance

The year 2016 seemed to be a turning point for America, where it made a sharp turn away from heading for a future humanity like that depicted in Star Trek, and headed for one much more akin to the future humanity depicted in Avatar.

Looks like this show has recalibrated Starfleet accordingly, which would explain Picard's disgist.

The reporter than interviewed Picard seemed like she worked for One Federation News Network.

Re: ENT S2: Cogenitor

The Vissians seem more advanced than either humans or Vulcans (where are they in the 24th century?), so you'd think by now they would have been able to synthesize the Cogenitor enzyme and let the Cogenitors have lives of their own.
