Re: ENT S3: Damage

Now THIS was the episode where unethical choice was justified by plot (And by justified, I really mean plot-wise, not from the view point of some, who may still see Archer's actions unjustified and be perfectly right in their logic)...

Here the scriptwriters gave us logical reasons to believe that Archer is doing unethical thing because he HAVE to (or because he really thinks he have, doesn't matter).

It's a difference between this episode and the episode where Archer and Phlox just let the whole race to be wiped out of the existence, just because of some pseudo-scientific nonsense, that only Hitler and Goebbels would sign under...

Re: ENT S3: Doctor's Orders

My guess to your question of:

"Why not pick someone he knows better, like one of his wives or a close friend? If he must imagine someone from the ship in order to fool himself into believing that he is not alone, would his mind really pick T'Pol?"

Would be that in a state of mind he appeared and in a situation he was in, he (or better to say his mind) subconsciously have choose the most rational, logical, calm and methodical character he knew on the ship. Of course, it should have been Vulcan.

Another reason was that if he'd choose any human, he would have to answer some logical question as to why this particular human was not affected by anomaly, while others were.

Re: ENT S2: Carbon Creek

What I would really love to see at the end of this episode, would be if at the end it somehow appeared that the nerd guy was grandfather, or great grandfather of Zefram Cochraine... That would be nice touch.

Well, anyway. Can't disagree more on this review as well... It was one of the best of Enterprise

Re: ENT S2: Marauders

Sometimes Jammer just surprises me to extremes. I think this is one of the wors episodes not only on Enterprise, but the whole Star Trek franchise, yet this gets more than the previews episode with dog, which is... kind of "meh" but still watchable and non-offensive to ones intelligence.

Here, writers just order us to turn off our brains, forget anything we know about Klingons and waste our hour watching the lamest excuse for an action ever filmed.

But since Jammer gave that horrible episode in which Doctor and Captain effectively exterminate whole race in the name of a dubious doctrine (At the end of which Doctor Mengele and Joseph Goebbels would sign happily) I need to learn to be less surprised by Jammer

Re: TNG S2: Q Who

It seems I am in extreme minority about some of the characters of Star Trek. For me, Q was one of the most annoying characters, no only in Star Trek universe, but about any single piece of television or mainstream movies I have ever seen.

If I will ever re-watch Star Trek from start to finish, I will make sure to skip ANY episode with Q or Lwaxana Troi.

What I hate most about Star Trek is god-like, omnipotent, invulnerable characters, who you can't seemingly oppose in any way. And for the necessity of plot to go through, you have to invent either Deus Ex Machina, or some unbelievable piece of influential speech which affects such characters, when in reality, with IQ of Q and his disregard of most life forms (especially petty humans... why is he interested in us so much anyway?), it would be impossible for any minor humanoid to influence or change his mind in any way.

Like there's no way that earth-worm will do anything to convince me to not use it for fishing purposes when I can.

I loath Q with passion and any episode he is in, is zero for me
