Re: DS9 S7: It's Only a Paper Moon

Fantastic episode but again, as mentioned earlier, hammers home the trope that everyone in the future listens to music from centuries before. Classical, Big Band and the like or they're all fascinated by old stories (Sherlock Holmes/Captain Proton/Shakespeare)

Everything moved forward, medicine, technology but music and art just stopped.

But yeah. Goof episode.

Re: Star Trek: Insurrection

Watched this last night for the first time in absolutely ages and I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. Light and breezy, I think the humour works and doesn't feel too forced apart from a couple of jokes. A decent story, cool bad guys, a funky space battle.
Yeah, not the best but not the worst. I reckon this is a 3.

Script here. If anyone can face going through. Read some of the cringe inducing comedy they removed.

Re: TNG S7: The Pegasus

Yeah, I like this episode. Not a 4 * but a decent 3.

I'm also on the Federation having no cloaking devices as dumb. So the Federation win their war with the Romulan's and then they organise a peace treaty which basically says "Yeah you can have technology that means you can sneak everywhere and we wont."
It's nonsense. I appreciate the Federation wouldn't use it as standard, but it would be on all their ships.

Re: DSC S2: General Discussion

Looking forward to it.
Season one was not without it's flaws but pretty much every 1st season on Trek was weak when you look back.
If people are going to turn their back on it then that is up to them. They'll be the ones complaining about it in February without having watched an episode.

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

Oh.... And why was there even a train on that planet. The Star Wars Universe is full of space ships that could have got the Coaxium or whatever it was there in no time.
But lets stick in on a train on a mountain because it will look cool.
All I kept thinking is "Why is that even there?"

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

My verdict on Solo.
Pretty much forgettable. Ok. It wasn't a disaster but I really didn't care. There is no jeopardy in a story like this. You can instantly guess who the bad guys might be and who is likely to die.
Got really bored towards the end and started to nod off.
None of the humour made me laugh. The Last Jedi was actually funnier. None of the action sequences blew me away either. Oooh.. another big monster chase.
I maintain this film didn't need to be made. The fact that it bombed has now likely robbed us of some potentially decent side stories. Like Rogue One was.
Slow clap Disney. Slow clap.

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Really pleased that someone else has taken positives from scenes that people were negative about.
This film is not without it's flaws... I'm sticking with a 3/4 now but I have seen it twice and enjoyed it both times. I look forward to watching it again.

Re: DS9 S1: Emissary

I know it's TV nonsense but it kind of bugs me that after this episode that the Enterprise doesn't go off for a jolly through the worm hole.
The flagship of the Federation. It's mission to boldly go etc... But doesn't boldly go to a new quadrant.

Re: DSC S1: Will You Take My Hand?

Most people expected this series to be horrific and bomb hard I think a lot of people have been proved wrong.
It's not perfect and certainly shows a slightly disjointed first season. A clunky finale but not the absolute shit show half the commentators on here are saying. IMO anyway.
Very confident that season 2 will be better with steadier hands running the ship and that they'll be focused on taking it in Trekkier directions.

Just give us more Tilly... She is amazing.

Re: DSC S1: The War Without, The War Within

Possibly my favourite episode so far.
Sad to see this coming to an end next week. Hope I (I wont say we because from the comments here everyone seems to dislike it) don't have to wait an age for season 2.
Can't wait to see where they go with all this.
Part of me is hoping for an epic reset just because of the implosion it will cause!

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

@Chrome - One other thing that bothered me was the cheap cash-in on "First Contact". The clip even used the exact same music and stock footage of James Cromwell meeting the Vulcans without actually hiring the actor back.

Him and the other actors all agreed on a minimal appearance fee for reusing the footage. Imagine hiring them back, rebuilding the set (they were lucky enough to be able to get the bottom of the Vulcan ship from someone) would have taken a decent slice of the budget from quite an FX heavy couple of episodes.

Re: DSC S1: Vaulting Ambition

Do I like the more grown up, gory Star Trek - Yes.

Do I like the serialised nature - Yes.

Do I like the fact that "fan theories" turn out to be correct, more or less - Yes.

Do I like Star Trek Discovery - Yes... Yes I do.

Not much more to add. My wife and I look forward to watching this on Monday nights... Are sad there are only a few episodes left... Are extremely sad we'll have to wait ages for season 2!

Re: DSC S1: The Wolf Inside

Continues to be entertaining and engaging.

I sometimes feel that people forget that TV can be about switching off and going with the flow rather than switching on an analyzing the **** out of every minute detail...

Re: ORV S1: About a Girl

Best episode yet and certainly the most Trek like.
I like the humour... I'm a big kid. Dick jokes make me laugh.

Re: ORV S1: Command Performance

Second episode watched and big improvement on the first.
I love the modern day references "I'm not going to be your Obi-Wan" and the hash cake cracked me up. I like that this is a crew of "Us" onboard a star ship.
Thought the Zoo thing was very cool as well, not heavy handed but cool.
Rescuing the kid was a nice touch as freeing the whole Zoo would have been a bit lame.

Whilst there is no escaping the fact that this is a Trek pastiche it is also it's own thing. Light hearted with some Sci-Fi thrown in.
Looking forward to what comes next. I think this will be fun.

Re: ORV S1: Old Wounds

OK... So UK viewer finally watched the first episode on catch up.
I like the overall vibe but agree, this wasn't a great first episode. Made me smile a lot but not the comedy I was expecting and the Sci-Fi wasn't amazing.

Onboard for more though (just finished the second episode) and I have hopes that this will be an entertaining show. If not amazing.

Re: DSC S1: Into the Forest I Go

Not sure if this has been said but I think Ash's flashbacks are to his conversion from Klingon to Human and not of actual torture...

Or not.

Re: DSC S1: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

Decent episode, not one of Discovery's best but it was worth it for Saru legging it across the cliff top.
I hope they clear up the is Tyler a spy or isn't he.
One minute he says something that makes you think "If he's a spy he has sure done his home work." Then he proper telegraphs things and makes you yell "You're a spy..." We've not seen Voq for ages either.
I will be annoyed if he is.
Cornwell isn't dead. Think that is pretty obvious.

Much as I am enjoying this show (certainly a lot more than a lot of people on here) I do agree with the common held though... Why make it a prequel? A few tweaks to the foe and this could have been set after Voyager... Maybe something is going to happen in the second half of the season that hammers home why they wanted another prequel. At the moment it doesn't make sense.

Re: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

It's amazing the bad science people will let go when it suits them.
Time warps round the sun. Recharging Dilithium Crystal's in the 20th century despite the fact it's, supposedly, impossible in the future.

I love this movie but when I see people ripping into Discovery for bad science it does annoy. It's Sci Fi FFS!
