Re: ENT S4: In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II

I thought these episodes were fun if not spectacular. I did have a problem with the portrayal of the Gorn. Making the Gorn so quick moving doesn't seem like paying tribute to TOS (in which their slow movement is an essential plot point). It seems instead like messing with continuity just for the sake of throwing a Gorn in the episode. Which, I might add, did nothing for the plot. I wish they would have used some other species for the stowaway on this episode and then used the Gorn in a different one where they actually were essential to the story (and possibly some explanation could be given as to why they slow down so dramatically in the next century).

On the other hand, I had no problem with the gripe that having the Defiant should have meant the mirror universe tech would have been far more advanced in Kirk's time. Since we never see what happens to it, I simply assumed that the ship and the crew on it were destroyed somehow before the technology was able to be examined and/or reproduced. That doesn't seem at all like a stretch, given how much aggression and ship destruction we saw in this universe. Would have made for a great episode, though!

Re: DS9 S2: Invasive Procedures

So we have an episode where DS9 is evacuated again where it was already evacuated in the previous episode... Not so smart writing.

Quark goes unpunished for dealing with mercenaries and letting them on DS9 which lead to Dax getting her abdomen cut open and nearly killed. It's completely forgotten about and it's business as usual next episode.

This is my first time watching through DS9 and I hope it gets better.

Re: DS9 S1: Progress

Star trek has had some really good episodes, and really bad episodes, but none I could say that were just flat out mind numbingly boring until now.

Re: TNG S7: Force of Nature

This episode didn't make any sense

So if I'm to get this straight, Serova's goal was to get the Federation to take action on warp drives causing damage to space and to look at her research. But when the most prime opportune moment comes to achieve her goal, when she runs into Picard, she throws away her opportunity and leaves in a tantrum just because it would take too long for the science council to look at if even though Picard says he'd basically fast track it. Then Serova blows her warp core on purpose to open a rift just to say I told you so, completely endangering and altering her planet forever contradictory to her entire goal which was to avoid such a cataclysm in the first place by educating people. It would be like Earth's most leading and outspoken climate scientist saying oh well you don't believe me? I will blow up the ozone layer and then you will!!
