Re: DS9 S7: 'Til Death Do Us Part

Kira's indignance at Sisko marrying Kasidy was very offputting.

I don't care what Sisko's parentage is...they have no right to deny a sentient being of one of the fundamental aspects of life. Kira endured the Occupation, so I'd think she'd be more understanding. She certainly was allowed to have whatever relationships and lovers she wanted.

Re: DS9 S7: Penumbra

On Odo,

By this point I'm surprised he still has the trust of the crew.

Twice now he's essentially thrown everyone under bus when a visitor came. It happened first with the she-Founder, and then again with Laas.

Re: DS9 S7: Chimera

It was delicious Schadenfreude when Sisko essentially told a complaining Odo to "tel it to the magistrate".

Re: DS9 S7: Take Me Out to the Holosuite

It's nice of the Dominion War to be so accommodating of digressions like this...

Re: DS9 S7: Afterimage

I couldn't blame Garak at all for lashing out at Quark's...the people around him were virtually standing in his lap. If Julian thought Garak was so rude, he could have offered to switch seats with him and see how he liked it.

Re: DS9 S6: Tears of the Prophets

Also some nice continuity when it was Kira that took command of the Defiant...when Sisko said that Worf wouldn't get command after the events of "Change Of Heart", he wasn't kidding. Almost expected to see Worf back in yellow.

The guy standing in the background of the meeting in the ward room had an ancient TNG era uniform, and it really stood out.

Starfleet lets the guy they just tasked with planning the invasion of Cardassia take an indefinite leave?

So...they removed Quarks' ears and transplanted...smaller ones?

Are his old ones in a jar in the infirmary, next to his nuts?

Re: DS9 S6: Sacrifice of Angels

I get why some people think the ending here was contrived, but it pretty much had to be something as "epic" as the Prophets guarding the wormhole. If the thing that stopped the Dominion Fleet was merely some more ordinary man-made, one-time deux-es-machina, there really wouldn't be much stopping the Dominion from trying to retake DS9 over and over again, and we'd have to see that play out over and over again in scripts.

This way, the specter of the Prophets is keeping the Dominion at bay. There's literally a "fear of God" aspect at work that makes the Federation's reclamation of DS9 is far more stable.

Re: DS9 S4: The Way of the Warrior

Odo wasn't in this episode but I could swear on of the Klingons in this episode was played by Aberjonois.

Re: DS9 S3: Past Tense, Part I

Early in the episode, dialogue asserts that "no one with a criminal record is allowed in the sanctuary districts", but there's no way that this B.C. character didn't have a criminal record.

At any rate, by now he should have been evicted and now be placed wherever those people with criminal records ended up.

Presumably prison.

Re: DS9 S2: The Wire

How long was Kira eavesdripping in the opening scene?

The moment Garak leaves, she bounds into the scene like a St. Bernard.

Re: DS9 S1: A Man Alone

Strange to hear so many characters initial voices befoe they settled into what they'd later become.

Both Odo and Rom have very severe speaking voices here, before both settle into much more gentle versions over time.

Seven of Nine went in the other direction, being very softspoken in her early episodes before settling into a more stern, schoolmarm-ish style for the rest of the series run.

Re: DS9 S1: A Man Alone

So...what happened to the weird bugs that Jake and Nog set loose on those poor people? Everyone looked at them like they were freaking out for nothing, but changing colors sounds pretty serious to me. And...why did it stop after a minute...where did the bugs go after that? Still roaming about Quark's to affect other people? Or absorbed into their skin forever? Both are creepy prospects.

One of the most ridiculous scenes I've ever seen on any Trek.

Re: VOY S7: Body and Soul

I agree with everything Skeptical said...if anything he was too kind.

I found it entirely unbelievable that Seven could withstand endless personalities in Infinite Regress and still make appearances, but that one EMH matrix would totally suppress her personality from the outset. But they needed that to be the case for the ensuing "hilarity".

Re: VOY S6: Child's Play

The Doctor commenting on how much Naomi needs her mother is almost a lampshade, since I don't think Nancy Hower and Scarlett Pomers ever had a scene together on the entire series. In a couple episodes, it seemed like Naomi actually lives with Neelix.

Re: VOY S6: Survival Instinct

Fortunately this was the end of RDM's Voyager writing tenure. Here his warped logic strikes again, taht's a lifetime as a drone is more "moral" than a short life free.

The three TNG era doctors had the the most warped sense of morality ever.

Re: VOY S5: Infinite Regress

And...I can't stand the sci-fi trope where someone who is possessed by another entity will see the image of the person "in them" by looking in a mirror or reflective surface.

It's absolutely absurd on its face. Who first came up with this?

Re: VOY S5: Infinite Regress

It's amazing how wildly divergent they made Janeway on the Borg.

Here they had her "give them a wide berth"...


Cut to Dark Frontier, where she basically invades them.

Re: VOY S5: Extreme Risk

The "this has been going on for weeks or months" theory is undermined by the scene with Neelix in the mess hall. Neelix acts like Torres not insulting his cooking is a out of the ordinary - that day.

Re: VOY S5: Extreme Risk

@ Brian C

They clearly do make torpedoes that way. They've gone through far more than the 38 they had when they left DS9.

They used like 12 just in "Night" alone.

Re: VOY S5: Extreme Risk

Such wild fluctations on Voyager as to how important it is to not leave their technology around fro anyone to get it.

The show had it right early on, when it was such a no-no that much of the conflict with the Kazon (and later Seska) was centered around it.

But by the end of Season 2, there seemed to be complete 180, because all indications are that in Resolutions, all the stuff beamed down that Janeway and Chakotay were living with was left there when they came back to Voyager.

And now here, we're back to the probe MUST be retrieved.

Re: VOY S4: Message in a Bottle

So wait...are we to assume from the EMH-2s dialogue that the new EMH program WON'T treat an injured person if they're an enemy, such as a Romulan?

Not exactly an upgrade...
