Re: TNG S1: Haven

Maybe I missed something but how did these people, who were said to be at a 20th century technology level when they wiped out most of their species, manage to build such advanced starships?

Re: TNG S6: Man of the People

I've never liked these episodes where someone starts rapidly aging, and they made so many of them. The way their hair changes particularly annoys me. Hair is dead, it can't magically change colors, length and styles. The way Troi's hair went from being completely white, long and straggly to instantly being black and curly again is just ludicrous and would be intellectually insulting even in a children's program. Is this the best the writers could do? As someone said upthread they could have at least had them use the transporter to de-age her like they did with Pulaski. Annoying DNA magic aside I thought the rest of the episode was, well I was going to say decent but on second thought it really wasn't. This was just a bad episode all around and besides that it has been done already, numerous times.

Re: ENT S2: Dead Stop

The last scene reminded me of the end of Steven King's "Christine" where the car is crushed into a cube at the scrap yard but in the very last moment it starts repairing itself. I agree with the other posts wondering about how the station could do that with the computer, power and everything else destroyed. It was creepy but also very silly.

Re: ENT S2: Carbon Creek

I must say I strongly disagree with the low rating here. This is definitely one my very favorite episodes of the series. One thing I've wondered, how did T'Pol know that one that Mestral stayed behind on Earth? When they were rescued they told the Vulcans that he had died along with the captain (also I thought Vulcans didn't lie). Unless they later revealed this secret there's no way anyone else could have known what happened. Although I assume since she was T'Pol's great great grandmother that she passed the secret down through her family.

It's hard to believe that it would not have been discovered in the time they were there or that no one in that entire town saw the ball of fire shooting across the sky or the sound of the crash. How did they retrieve it when they were rescued, beam it up? Surely they couldn't have left it there. The velcro thing was pretty silly too, I thought she was looking through the ship for some precious metals to sell or something, like Alf's gold plumbing he used to by Lynn a Ferrari.

Re: ENT S1: Acquisition

So the Ferengi planted some fake relic on a moon for Enterprise to find, and inside that artifact was some kind of knockout gas. I have so many questions I don't know where to begin. How did the Ferengi know that Enterprise would be going on an expedition to that moon, and how did they know that they would find the artifact and take it aboard? (It also annoyed me a bit that T'pol called it a Lunar expedition. Only our moon is referred to as Luna.)

How did the knockout gas inside it flood an entire Starship? Every deck, every room, except for the decontamination bay where Trip just so conveniently happened to be. I know it's a comedy episode but even Looney Tunes cartoons has better writing. It's hard to believe these four bumbling fools could even fly a ship, let alone take over a starship.

Re: ENT S1: Terra Nova

I'm not sure where the idea came from that they were mutated or alien looking. They weren't mutated at all, they just had their faces painted sort of aboriginal style using mud and pigments. I just find it difficult to believe they would have regressed so far in only 70 years. Even if their parents had died the children would have passed down their knowledge to their own children. It seems silly to think they would have completely forgotten being human of all things.

Really it felt very much like the writers were fans of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and based these survivors on the surviving children of that plane crash in the movie, with their primitive way of life, speech, talking about "tracking", etc. and the old woman remembering where they came from. "I'm lookin' behind us now, into history back..."

SPEAK TO ME!!" For such a supposedly great negotiator he sure loses his temper easily.
