Re: DS9 S4: For the Cause

I have to say it's one of the few ratings I disagree with, wanting a reason for Eddingtons Maquis support seems a little childish. The whole point of sleeper cell terrorists and undercover agents is you don't know who or why. DS9 did a great job elaborating on the reasons for Eddington's betray as the series progressed.
I also thought seeing Sisco brooding and deep in thought rather than confusing his problems to Dax or Jake seemed far more realistic than him discussing his issues with his teenage son, it really got across his inner turmoil.
Also liked the side story with Garak and Ziyal, Garak is a far cry from the cold hearted killer he used to be and it's nice to see Ziyal give such a well thought out speech about her past experiences.

Re: VOY S4: Year of Hell, Part II

Why weren't the temporal police from starfleet in the future dealing with Anorax???!!!! Wiping out hundreds of species from existence surely would of popped up on their temporal scans ?!

Re: DS9 S7: What You Leave Behind

Loved this incarnation of Star Trek, if only Voyager had been brave enough to follow the same trend of long term storylines.
I didn't think that the Dukat ending was a disappointment at all, yes I suppose him and Sisco could of had a more in depth discussion but I've always thought by this point the script writers had made it pretty clear what Dukat wanted; he wanted the Bajorans to love him, respect him and worship him... throughout the entire series the one constant with Dukat has been his continued dismay that his "fair" reign over Bajor was unappreciated by the population and that he looked at them as his "children", this is all something that came easy to Sisco as the Emissary to the prophets with the irony being that Sisco never cared or wanted that worship or adulation which is why Dukat hated him so much.

Re: DS9 S3: Past Tense, Part I

I wanted to enjoy this episode but constantly found it hard to believe that Bell and the riots were of such pivotal importance to the forming of Star Fleet. Any good that came from the riots was completely wiped out by world war three and the destruction it caused.
The arrival of the Vulcan survey team was the unifying force for earth not these riots that would have just been a small footnote in comparison

Re: ENT S3: Chosen Realm

I think this is a mixed episode but I disagree with your comment about turning the allegory into absurdity, I think it makes it's point exactly! If you look at the differences in the belief system of Sunni and Shia Muslims that have 90% of their religion in common but are slaughtering each other in their thousands at the moment over a small divergence in their beliefs.
Most religions - Christianity, Catholicism, Muslim, Jew all have far more in common than they differ yet they regularly kill each other over these differences.
I think the protagonists in this episode highlight perfectly the gross insane stupidity of religious extremists!

Re: TNG S5: Conundrum

No one here has commented on the principle motive in this episode. If you are focussing on plotholes don't watch sci-fi. This episode is about the morality of not following orders. The choice that Piccard makes is not a hard one, when looking at the evidence, given the inferiority of the enemy. But few in the real world, have made that choice. If you have the lives of 15000 people in your hands, then you always have a choice about whether you follow an order, even when your own life or career is at risk.

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

@impulse Just a scene with Worf and Jake could spark interest in his own son or Worf and Cisko casually mentioning raising a son would have been nice.

I'm not sure if jake and Worf ever spoke to each other.

Re: VOY S4: Demon

SO MANY plot holes. The planet was pretty cool looking, but that's about all this episode has going for it.

That was hilarious by the way. If they ever make another series, you should go back for a GOOD episode involving something deep and awesome. It would have been funny to see what they thought of "Frame of Mind", or "Projections".
