Re: TNG S3: The Ensigns of Command

Btw, the title refers to an ancient poem. In the context of this poem, the subject lusts for power. "Give me power! give me the 'ensigns of command'". in this archaic context, "ensigns" means "trappings," or "symbols"

Re: DS9 S5: Rapture

I like to think the bajoran guy had a really bad case of tarkalean flu that day and the prophets told the Sisko of this man's suffering. Therefore they told sisko to take mercy on him and let him go home early. Rom can pick up his slack anyway

Re: VOY S4: Vis A Vis

I agree that it is amusing to watch the cgi progress in Voyager. Even a step up from DS9

Re: DS9 S3: Fascination

This episode does have a sense of zany energy about it. A lot of Trek shows seem to have strange tones that are hard to distinguish between serious and comedy. I think the individual's perception factors majorly into this episode especially with the growing age ranges enjoying Trek now. Lightweight, enjoyable epjsde. 4/10

Aaa, any excuse to hear Troi tearfully wail "YOU MUST SAVE HIMMMMMMMMM" is just fine with me! Great corny line

Re: TNG S2: Manhunt

I love silly Trek shows just as much as any true trek fan but this episode simply has too many annoying plot holes to really be enjoyable. Like the mom reading Picards mind during dinner but she doesn't read Rexs mind at the holo bar?

Re: VOY S4: Random Thoughts

The mind meld scene was intense. In fact I loved the whole B plot of Tuvok infiltrating the memory black market. The direction succeeded in establishing a menacing tone and seeing the "darker" side of Tuvok's mind was exciting. 7.5/10 episode for me.

Re: DS9 S3: Facets

I assumed that because Odo can take on other forms, he could in theory, replicate humanoid physiology and become intoxicated on ethanol or ethanol-like beverages.

Also the concept of Trill love is fascinating to me. Sad we only get one scene really exploring this in depth. This was great

Re: TNG S2: Unnatural Selection

Awful episode. Mulder was an awful actor. Head shaking like a bobblehead is NOT a good way to "act emphatic" and the WRITING was even worse. it's like the writers never watched any of the movies and had never heard the phrase "eugenics wars" in trek canon!

Great twist that I did not see coming what so ever. Also great to see Chakotay in a modern warfare setting.

Re: TNG S2: The Child

Pulaskis "folksy" racism and bigotry was cringe inducing. I know she was meant to "challenge" the rest of the crew but you can do that without utilizing such a totally loathsome character.

Re: TNG S1: The Neutral Zone

As someone born in the early 1990s I did not find the frozen people relatable at all. They just seemed greedy and self centered

Re: VOY S5: Course: Oblivion

It always cracks me up to see people treat Trek as this "hard sci fi" show that rests within our laws of physics and understanding. The whole point is to leave those normal constraints behind and use that freedom to explore interesting ideas. That's what this show exemplifies for me. No, it doesn't make sense but it is an INTERESTING story imo. Therefore this show is a success in my book even if it's too "cynical"??? for some.

Re: TNG S1: Skin of Evil

The funeral scene at the end is way too long. I just had to rewatch with my mom (her first viewing so i have to suffer through shows like this again.) and i was just cringing the entire time. It seemed like she had a "personal message" for everyone on the ship. Why did she not have one for Ben or the tea drinking transporter guy?

Re: DS9 S2: Whispers

Really interesting to me how all the people complaining about "bias" against Voyager can't name a single VOY mystery episode better than "Whispers." This is because there really are no better mystery episodes than this! I love Voyager but it never really did mystery episodes of this quality.

Re: VOY S3: Fair Trade

I don't care what "memory alpha" says! In my headcanon, Paris was attending the academy but was known for being a wildcard so his dad registered him under a different name to avoid any potential humiliation his son might cause him. Fits in with Tom's daddy issues perfectly and makes sense of the frankly confusing writing they did

Hello, user "Jayson" couldn't help but notice but his name is "Sisko" not Sisco. Common slip of the tongue, quite common!

I love Chakotay's line at the end about how his staging a mutiny would have been crossing the line. Was a nice way to bring the episode full circle

Re: VOY S2: Resolutions

I think the monkey symbolizes Janeways struggle to accept life on the planet "giving up" as she puts it. Indifference to the monkey represents her attachment to her Starfleet life while calling out and making friends with the monkey, represents her acceptance of being stranded on the planet listening to Chakotays "ancient warrior" stories.

Re: DS9 S5: The Begotten

A good rule of thumb to the noobies, the older the show, the more spoilers there will be. This is the internet, baby! (no pun intended related to this episode's plot!)
Decent episode but I do wish they had shown the infant changeling in pain to somehow show its suffering. That would have made its sacrifice more dramatic. I found the restoration of Odo to be wondrous. Really enjoyed.
