Re: TNG S2: The Emissary

I want to file a complaint with Star Fleet HR. Do they hire "any" full blood aliens? All of them are half human. Troi is half Betazoid; Worf and K'Ehleyr are half Klingon. Even Spock was half human and Vulcan.

Worf never even had a woman, even on Risa, so you would think he would instantly do the Riker Leap on K'Ehleyr. Poor Alexander is only 1/4 Kilngon from their mating? Although he looks full Klingon. At least they look better than the pure Klingon's. I could never do the deed with the Duras sisters, L'Ursa and B'Etor. I would take K'Ehleyr off Worf's hands had he not knocked her up.

Re: TNG S2: Up the Long Ladder

Just watched this episode a few minutes ago.

Evidently, the hypocritical Riker did indeed inject his DNA into the mix. There will soon be a little Riker in the Mariposa gene pool. Sometimes you have to bow to the absurd. I can't believe Brenna was only in a few short scenes. Now we'll never know if she picked Eddie Murphy as a DNA donor.

Re: TNG S1: The Naked Now

Showing that Data gets drunk is as big a fail as when they showed Luke and Leia making out. It two more films before they reversed course and made them brother and sister. After this episode season, Data didn't even have emotions, much less et drunk. Reminds me of the first season of TOS, where Spoke was shown to smile. He later became serious as a heart attack.

Re: TNG S7: Lower Decks

Sorry, Guinan is no Ben. She doesn't hangout or play poker with junior or senior officers. In fact other than Beverly, Deanna, and and maybe Worf, she doesn't interact with no one else other than Picard. Never cared for Whoopie, and hated the fact she was even on this show.

I also despised Picard for manipulated this young woman into this mission. And if Star Fleet isn't a military organization. then what is it? Is it like the Merchant Marines? And if it isn't military, why are members putting their lives at risk on missions? Also, if the current society is not based on the accumulation of things, but to better ones self and not get paid, why would anyone want to join Star Fleet, and fight like the devil to keep from getting kicked out?

Sito, almost got kicked out of the Academy after covering up a classmates death. She was almost in tears as she told Picard how she no longer had no friends, and almost quit. What would actually happen to her if she did? It seems like you would live an easy life if you weren't in Star Fleet.

I did like seeing how you got to see junior officers, and how they progressed through the ranks. These four Ensigns didn't have a very glamorous life on the ship since they were the bottom rung. They even had to share a room with someone. Makes you think why Wesley wanted to be an acting Ensign so bad, and thought it was the best thing ever. Having been in the military, the first three officer ranks were based on time in grade. That means you automatically got promoted to the next rank. There were special boards where you competed to get accelerated directly to the 3rd rank, but these four weren't doing that.

It was eye opening that within an organization, there were secrets that were kept from even junior officers. Maybe I could see the enlisted folk being kept in the dark, but not officers. The more they pretend this isn't a military organization, the more it looks like one. Uniforms, rank insignia, a hierarchy, and military bearing. I laughed when Riker dressed down Lavelle that a single Aye was sufficient when acknowledging an order.

Having been in the military, there is no way I would join Star Fleet. Not a career I would want to be part of. Until I saw this episode, I used to think being on a Star Ship to be kinda cool. But that's because you only saw life through the eyes of the Senior Staff, who were given great leeway in their jobs. Hooking up with aliens for a few days, and problem solving. What's not to like? The junior officers don't seem to do anything but training and routine work. They aren't seen to have anything to do with missions even though they are sitting on the Bridge. All you ever see is them navigating the ship to the next great adventure, then ignored. Again, I never really thought about them until this episode.

I like the political maneuvering episodes with Worf, and even this episode over the ones when some demon alien gets inside an officers body, or the ship caught in some snare.

Re: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

For as smart as Khan believes he was, he lost over half his crew on the planet because of an ear bug? And not once did he think to stick cotton in their ears?

Kirk bragged that he beat the no win scenario, and it was revealed he cheated, by changing the conditions to make it possible to rescue the crew. He didn't go in detail how he did it, but it was explained in the reboot. That should had been left unexplained because it made no sense. How could a cadet be allowed to take that test three times, then get in trouble by cheating the 4th time? And over the many years, every person would know that the test was rigged and can't be one. You would think each person would just go along with the program. You pretend like it was a hard decision in what to do, fail, then continue on in class since no one can actually fail the test. Not sure why Kirk didn't do the same.

From what I recall from The Space Seed, the entire crew were genetically engineered. So Khan was just one of many super smart people. Anyone of them could had been the head cheese if they were thawed first. Wouldn't there been huge conflicts and fights to the death between each of them by constantly competing for alpha status? That would had been the time to challenge Khan, which his second in command did, and take control of the ship, but didn't.
Khan failed because he was an unstable egomaniac bent on revenge.

My favorite film, was First Contact, but this is easily #2.

Re: TNG S4: First Contact

Here is the problem I have with the Prime Directive. Star Fleet says you can't contact an alien race who hasn't developed Warp capability. What is the jist of this? I say it means no contact with a culture who hasn't gone out there in the universe and found other alien races themselves. If a planet has experience with other alien cultures, then they would be more receptive to an alien race visiting them. But that is not what happens. On a handful of episodes, the Enterprise calls on a planet five minutes after they get a ship to Warp speed. But in this case they were ready to have dinner with them weeks before the ship launched. And in every case they want a planet to agree to join the Federation before they can give it some thought. I guess to beat the Romulan's, Vulcan's or Ferengi from making their own offer. Pretty sure Zefram Cochrane signed up to join the Space Gang the five minutes after he landed, when the Vulcans made him his offer.

Vulcan Leader: So you made a warp jump. How about joining our Warp gang? We'll show you around the galaxy and introduce you to people.

Going to Warp doesn't make a race more worldly or sophisticated. In fact Zefram Cochrane acted like he had never been in space before. We have been in space for 50 years, so developing Warp technology would be a natural progression. But we have yet to had met any aliens, or have been told about it. We would have no business hooking up with another alien culture we know nothing about, just because they showed up one day. The same with the Malcorians. I would turn Picard down immediately. Don't contact us, we will contact you.

Riker was locked up in the security wing of the hospital. If a male nurse tried to give favors to a female prisoner if she would have sex with him. He would be arrested and become a prisoner himself. A couple years ago that female employee who was having sex in the closet with a prisoner, then gave him equipment for him to escape. She is doing time herself, even if she didn't give him files and drill bits hidden in frozen meat. A male prisoner would jump on some prison sex with a female, even if she was really homely and fat., who wouldn't? But there are laws against it. And should be on that planet too.

Star Fleet, give a planet a few years after they achieved Warp before you contact them. It will work out better. Then you can bring ambassador's to check out the people before making them a formal offer. By year ten you should know everything you need to know about them, instead of using undercover agents to infiltrate the planet. I'm hoping there are more than this city on the planet. I couldn't imagine a single person making all the decisions on behalf the the entire planet. These people didn't even confer with anyone else.

Re: TNG S4: The Mind's Eye

A conference on Risa? I should ask my boss can I attend the conference at the Bunny Ranch.

I once had a dream that was so real that it took me a couple weeks to convince myself it didn't really happen. So I can sort of relate how Geordi tries to come to terms with his brainwashing. Not sure if you can really get someone to assassinate a person like he almost did. But the way Geordi pushed Miles out of the way to take his seat made me giggle. I like all the Klingon political episodes. It says something that Worf is the most handsome Klingon in TNG. But K'Ehleyr is the most sexiest female, although she is half human. Very disturbing that some human laid up with a Klingon female like those two sisters, Lursa and B'Etor.

Re: TNG S4: Qpid

Worf: Nice legs.

I didn't realize how tiny and petite Vash was until I saw her curl up in the Captains chair. Smaller than Deanna.

Never understood why Picard never figures out not to annoy Q. It always ends up being his downfall. If a magical deity wants to hook you up, accept it. I got so tired of the two Darren's not being appreciative in having a witch as a wife, who can give them whatever he wants. Or Tony not liking a beautiful genie who is in love with him and willing to give him anything he wants.

I liked Captain's Holiday much better than this episode. An hour in listening to Picard get in deeper with Q, by arguing with him knowing he is going to do what he wants to do. All the episodes with Q are exactly the same. He wants to do something nice, gets rebuffed, then he exacts revenge. Maybe that's why I don't care for him.

Re: TNG S2: Up the Long Ladder

These people weren't prostituted together. They were one race race or group of people who split up on two separate planets. Picard just suggested that they all get back together and procreate. Seemed very logical to me. It's not like the Enterprise brought a bunch of Romulans or green slave girls to the planet to prop up their race. The technical people on the planet need to loosen up and stop being so stuffy, and the Irish folk need to get better educated. A match made in heaven. And yes, Brenna. Riker definitely likes girls.

Re: TNG S7: Thine Own Self

This was the 1st TNG episode that showed shift work, well other than the Lower Decks episode when all the ensigns all had to work shifts on the Bridge. Every other episode shows the main characters on the Bridge 24/7, including Crusher. How can she be Chief Medical Officer, always hanging out on the Bridge with the gang, and find time to pull night shift as a Commander?

As far as an officer ordering a man to his death, every Trek series had expendable Red Shirts for that. If there is going to be danger, a Red Shirt takes the phaser fire. Even during an intruder alert on the ship, a Red Shirt dies as the intruder makes their way to their objective. No need to order them to their death, they are self terminating.

I also never knew a probe or satellite used some sort nuclear propulsion system that has to be recovered if it crashed on some unsophisticated planet. They always said that nuclear power was some ancient technology not used in centuries. Had Data left the radioactive material where it landed, I doubt these townspeople would had ever come across it. They seemed to be content in staying in town, and not hiking through the countryside. Also it seemed strange that Data knew of "empirical data", but radioactivity. Or that he tried to correct the teacher about elements, and that fire doesn't come from wood.

Re: TNG S7: Inheritance

I could never make the leap and believe that an intelligent android wouldn't know they aren't a real person. And you would think if someone built an android, it wound be as smooth as a Ken doll down there. Other than a drunk and horny Tasha Yar, Data would have no use for sex organs.

I imagine when she shuts down once she discovers she was an android, she would go up in smoke like a tape from Mission: Impossible.

As far as having a dialog with a hologram, they do that now with the AI in phone voice response systems. It can understand what you say and can guide you where you need to go. They replaced the DJ's on radio stations with AI. It's not 100% perfect, but it can be difficult to tell the DJ isn't a real person.

Re: TNG S7: Liaisons

What does Anna mean when she says "Love Me!". Was she talking about the act or the emotion? If a woman asks you to immediately Love her, how do you do that? Kiss her? Hold her hand? Take her to the movies? Bring her flowers?? Maybe I'm just another dense guy?

The ambassador assign to Worf seemed to know how to fight, so I'm not sure what he wanted to get out of Worf. Surely he had to spar with someone to get to the level that he was. Or maybe he just watched Jackie Chan movies like Lenina Huxley said she did in Demolition Man?

Re: TNG S7: Homeward

Geordi, Geordi, Geordi. When my computer starts acting up, I reboot it. Wait until these people go to sleep, then Ctrl-Alt-Delete the holodeck. Or do as others suggested and just gas all of the people and put them asleep. Then toss Mr Cry Baby who got out of the holodeck, back in with them. Drop them off on a planet and leave. They will wonder where they are, but they'll get over it. Let them think what they want. There would be no way for them to figure out they are now on a planet 10 light years away. They'll adapt and life goes on. Better than waking up dead on their old planet.

Re: TNG S6: Starship Mine

Fights. Whenever Kirk or Picard get in a hand to hand fight, they get their butts kicked by either a retired Admiral, or some woman. Picard can't even hold his own against Kelsey. She beat him down and left him on the ship to pay his regrets. Of course he got the last laugh by removing the control module on the container, and it explodes on her, but still. Kirk usually gets beat up by the old dude who is at least 20 years older than him. The most unrealistic fights ever.

Re: TNG S4: Galaxy's Child

I saw this episode again recently, and each time I can't figure out how Mrs. Brahms saw the ending of the holodeck file. It would had taken hours to reach the end where she says "that every time Geordi looks at the engines he's looking at her, every time he touches the engines he's touching her". She had only been looking at the replay for a few minutes. Plus, I didn't think a holodeck program worked that way. It's more like a scenario that is programmed. So the next time you run the program, it will be the same setting, but not the same exact story or outcome. It's not like a VCR with a ply by play from the first time it is run. The Captain goes to the same Dixon Hill story, but it is a fresh encounter, not an exact rehash of the first few times he experienced that book chapter.

Geordi needs to get some ladies pointers from Wesley. At least he hooked up and made out with Robin Lefler in, The Game.

Re: TNG S1: The Arsenal of Freedom

How many jobs has Geordi had on the Enterprise? He starts out as Coffee Boy 1st class where he talks down to the Chief Engineer, to him becoming the Chief Engineer himself and expert of everything Tachyon. Don't you have to go back to the Academy to learn ships systems and the technobabble? He needed that to impress Dr. Braum's.

I was turned off when he took the ship into the atmosphere to make the invisible ship visible, while shields were at maximum to keep the ship from burning up. But as soon as they destroy the invisible ship, he tells the navigator to shut down the shields while they are still in the planets atmosphere. Gotta save those shield batteries.
