Re: TNG S7: Homeward

As holodeck malfunctions go, the ones on this episode at least seem reasonable. The idea that the holodeck isn't supposed to run 24/7 without being turned off every now and then makes sense.

Re: TNG S6: Descent, Part I

No mention of Steven Hawking as the only person in the whole of Star Trek to play themselves ...

Re: TNG S6: Suspicions

I like to think that since this whole episode was Bev telling it all to Guinan, that maybe she was a bit jaded in her story telling. That would explain a lot of the shallow guest characters, and why several of the regulars were a bit off. Maybe she thought Worf wasn't doing enough and interpreted it as disinterest and that bled over to her storytelling to Guinan. It makes the episode a lot more forgivable.

Re: TNG S6: Ship in a Bottle

I also really like that Moriarty makes a classic Holmes bad guy move, claiming to do something impossible or super natural. This is done a lot in Doyle's stories. You even see it in the first Robert Downey Jr. film. We also get Data cast in the Holmes role again. The one big difference from the Homes stories is that they were always written from Dr. Watson's POV, so you never knew that Holmes had figured it out until the end.

Re: ENT S4: These Are the Voyages...

The episode definitely had it's problems, the largest ones being, nobody on ENT changed in 6 years, Sirtis and Frakes are just too darn old to play season 7 Troi and Riker, and Trip's death was kinda hokey. Otherwise, I see where they were going, and I don't see this episode as being as abysmal as everyone says it is. It's not great, but not the piece of targ dung that fans keep labeling it.
As far as the accuracy of the holodeck recreation, I kinda took it to be a magical tv story-telling thing that what we, the audience, were seeing was what actually what happened (outside of the Riker-as-Chef scenes, which obviously didn't happen)

Re: ENT S3: Carpenter Street

In addition to your question of why 2004 when it would be easier to hide in 1404, why hide in Detroit? Why not pick a place where people disappearing would be much more unnoticed, someplace like Mumbai or Juarez.

Re: ENT S3: Twilight

You mention the ear-dwelling indigenous life forms on Ceti Alpha V being a potential problem. I also think the fact that Ceti Alpha VI is going to explode in 120 years and knock Ceti Alpha V out of orbit could also be a problem. : )

Re: ENT S3: Exile

The shuttle pod starting to take off on its own and leaving Trip and Archer on the sphere was brilliant. It's the sort of thing I would likely do if I lived in the Star Trek world.

Re: ENT S2: First Flight

I really liked the whole feel of the "Mission Control" room during Robinson's first test flight. It reminded me of Apollo 13 and From the Earth to the Moon, which I understand are both pretty accurate in that area. It was a nice touch to see early Starfleet looking a bit more like what we've done in real life space travel.

Re: ENT S2: The Catwalk

I like that we had a "bad guys take over the ship" episode that actually didn't make the crew look like morons. This was way better than the Ferengi knock-out gas, or any number of ways Voyager got taken over.

Re: ENT S2: Precious Cargo

I can't call this one zero stars, but I can't call it good either. If Padma could actually act worth a flip it'd be a lot better.

Re: DS9 S7: Tacking into the Wind

One thing that shows how far The Federation has changed in the war is a comparison between TNG's "Reunion" and "Tacking into the Wind". When Worf killed Duras in a traditional Klingon manner, Picard was pissed. As pissed as we've ever seen Picard. When Worf kills Gowron, The Chancellor of The High Council, Sisko doesn't bat an eye.

Re: VOY S7: Imperfection

I wonder if Imperfection was originally to be after Drive. I could have sworn that Tom had his wedding ring on during Seven's operation. One of you're big complaints in Imperfection was a lack of explanation of how they rebuilt The Flyer. Drive at least explains that it was altogether a new ship. Still doesn't explain how they built the darn thing, but it at least acknowledges that it blew up in Unimatrix Zero with more than just a throw away line.
