Re: ENT S2: Judgment

This might have worked if the balance between exploring Klingon culture and "honoring" ST VI was drastically shifted. When every single plot beat is the same, that's a rip-off in my book.

Re: DS9 S6: Sacrifice of Angels

I don't think I'd ever been as invested in a Star Trek series - maybe even a TV series in general - as much as I was in the Dominion War arc up to this point. The morality of the TNG federation was being tested and re-examined in a time of war. A rich cast of characters had to make difficult, sometimes dubious decisions in search of the greater good. And...

...it wasn't enough? Wow! What's going to happen next? Oh. None of it mattered.

It's not a DEM, but that doesn't mean it's a satisfying resolution. I've read interviews with Ira Behr about this episode, and how he felt it was a great climax for Sisko and his relationship with the Prophets. Ok. I don't disagree...but there was so much more going on here than that. I've often wondered if perhaps certain voices in the writer's room had precedence, and their plots and ideas have a higher priority.

I like that DS9 addresses religion and spirituality. I love that it did politics and conflict so well. I'm just so disappointed it couldn't mix the two better than what we got in Sacrifice of Angels and the last two seasons.

Re: TOS S1: The Return of the Archons

Okay episode, but just curious— didn’t the Enterprise go to the planet in the first place because another starship had gone there some time before and was never heard from again? Did that plot thread get resolved? I was waiting to hear that the whole computer-run society evolved from the past crashed starship but nothing like that was mentioned.

Re: TOS S1: Court Martial

Good episode, but I wish there was a more detailed explanation about how the visual computer record was altered to show Kirk pushing the jettison button early. How do you alter something like that? Finney certainly didn’t seem to have the know how to do that.

Re: VOY S6: Pathfinder

Great episode. Alone worth the price of the season six boxed set DVD's.
