Re: PIC S3: Dominion

Another fun episode, although I am kinda getting tired of all the super dark sets. Did they lose illumination technology in Picard's time? No more LED bulbs in the future?

Re: PIC S3: No Win Scenario

All the pearl-clutching over the F bombs is hilarious. Maybe even fucking hilarious.

People, adults use colorful language. They always have, especially when the stakes are high. They always will. This isn't network TV in the '80s anymore, it's a feature not a bug.

Re: PROD S1: Starstruck

The vehicle replicator was hilarious and also obviously something that must exist in Star Trek, but I had one issue. Why does the Evil Father Guy have to keep referring to his "progeny" on a show called "Prodigy"? Seems a bit confusing.

Re: LD S1: Cupid's Errant Arrow

I don't get the one-star rating. This episode was hilarious.

Re: LD S1: Second Contact

Just watched the first episode of this show and I think it's fantastic. I'm gonna consider this show to be comedic retellings of actual canon events, and no one can stop me.

Re: SNW S1: Ghosts of Illyria

"So M’Benga’s daughter is ill and he’s storing her in the transporter. Yes, okay, transporters don’t really work like that. Even if they included a nod to that by saying he has to materialize her periodically before the pattern degrades too badly and essentially “reset” the timeframe she can be stored."

Aychually Scotty was stored in a transporter buffer for a century or so and reappeared during an episode of TNG, so I'm pretty sure this abides by Star Trek canon rules close enough. Maybe Scotty figured out a way to get around the need to periodically materialize.

Re: VOY S6: Spirit Folk

Oh and as silly as it was, at least the guest actors were all entertaining.

Re: VOY S6: Spirit Folk

Watching this in 2022 I found Not one star, maybe two or two and a half.

Re: VOY S6: Fair Haven

This turned out better than I expected for a holodeck episode. 3 stars.

Re: VOY S6: Dragon's Teeth

I'd give this one another star for the great special effects.

Re: VOY S6: Riddles

I would have given this one three stars. It's moving.

Regarding Tuvok's inability to acknowledge his emotional experiences after the brain damage is repaired, I get the sense that Tuvok was designed to be more Vulcan than Spock. This makes sense given that Tuvok is full Vulcan, whereas Spock was half Vulcan, half human. So he's a more challenging character to write for and play.

Re: VOY S6: Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy

One of my favorite episodes, hilarious and moving at the same time. Picardo is brilliant!

Re: VOY S5: The Disease

The generation ship looked nifty. Add a half star for those special effects, must've been a lot of work back in the '90s.

Re: VOY S5: Latent Image

I would have given this episode 4 stars, or at least 3 1/2. The Doctor is borderline sentient, and it still makes sense for there to be some debate as to just how sentient he is. Also, if he goes kaput, that would spell bad news for the entire crew.

Meaty issues, great performances by all the actors.

Re: VOY S4: Day of Honor

I'd have given this at least a 3.

Re: VOY S3: Sacred Ground

What a profoundly silly episode. If it seemed nonsensical, that's because its subject matter was nonsensical.

Re: VOY S2: Tuvix

Actually I liked this episode a lot more, seeing it again so many years later. Tuvix's dilemma hit me right in the feels. I'd give it four stars.

Re: DS9 S6: Favor the Bold

This is definitely a four-star episode.

Re: DS9 S6: Rocks and Shoals

*shakes fist at the Vorta*

The B story on occupied DS9 was also perfect.

Re: DS9 S6: Rocks and Shoals

One of the best episodes yet! I shed a tear for the Jem'Hadar. The Vorta was brilliantly played.

Re: DS9 S5: Looking for Par'mach in All the Wrong Places

This was actually a pretty great episode. Most episodes have an A and a B story; this one had like A through G stories, all relevant to larger arcs, and all woven together nicely. Very nice use of all the characters and cultures.

Re: DS9 S4: For the Cause

This is actually one of my favorite DS9 episodes so far. Four stars!

Re: DS9 S4: Rejoined

The taboo against reconnecting with past intimate relationships didn't seem to make sense to me due to the continued friendship between Dax and Sisko, but come to think of it since Sisko is a human and not a Trill, maybe that's why it's not considered much of a big deal. Sisko will not live as long as a symbiont.

Re: DS9 S3: Equilibrium

I actually really liked the matte painting. Best Dax episode yet, definitely.

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

This day marks the final episode of Star Trek Enterprise that I've seen. And thus, I've finally seen every single episode of every single series, all the movies, read a dozen or so of the books, played a handful of the games... this is it. I've reached the end of Star Trek... until the next Abrams movie comes out at least. And I have to say, I feel like Enterprise was given a short shrift. To be brutally honest, I liked it better than Voyager or even TOS. And while I acknowledge the historical relevancy of the Original Series and respect what Gene was trying to convey about a utopian future, I kind of liked seeing the way Archer and the folks in Earth Starfleet struggled to get there.

Maybe it's a personal moment for me since I've spent so much of my life enjoying the various incarnations of Star Trek. But I couldn't disagree with you more. Far from being 'mediocre', I found myself genuinely choked up watching the crew interact, watching T'Pol and Trip discuss their feelings for one another, watching Archer give T'Pol a hug at the end of the episode. You could tell that the cast was fully aware that this was the end for them. They would not go on to make any more episodes. They wouldn't appear in any movies. Hell... we don't even seem to invite them to all the conventions. It truly is, the end of an era. I really feel like they were finally just warming up to something. And I, for one, will miss these guys.
