Re: TNG S7: Parallels

Yes, it was initially triggered on his trip back from the tournament in the shuttle. This could be a convenient excuse as to why we DON'T see drastically different alt Universes...it needs to be him on that shuttle passing through the fissure the same moment that the alt-Worfs were. So the differences he encounters are not waaay off of what his "correct" Universe is like, since they were all in a position to have been making the same trip.

There's only one standout here, and that is the one trying to survive the Borg-ified Universe. Hard to believe that alt Worf would have been attending a tournament during such chaos, but he could have been doing something else at the time which demanded the use of a shuttle - which just happened to pass over the same fissure.

One standout of thousands. I'll buy it.

Re: VOY S3: Flashback

^ this

The explanation goes that the virus masquerades itself as a repressed memory...so who is to say that the memories that it is currently interfering with are also not affected? This clears up pretty much any inconsistency. The time difference between events, the age of characters, how hammy they acted, which character it was that was actually killed, anything. The catalyst could have been the appearance of the nebula itself. Maybe that was the first time Tuvok met the person that the memory is mistaking for Valtane...it could be seeking out potential hosts upon first encounter in that sense? This is then explained away that all memories from first contact (seeing the nebula near the Klingon neutral zone from Excelsior's bridge) to later infection are potentially less-than-accurate.

Solid 4 stars, warts and all. Stop picking and just enjoy the ride.

Re: ORV S2: Deflectors

It could be that there is a Moclan revolution story arc in the works...the Bortus-centric stories always involve highly-regarded Moclan characters (wasn't it revealed that their most-celebrated literary figure was secretly a female?).

The problem with this episode is that even IF Lokar's plan had worked, he'd still be stuck living in hiding forever. Either way, his entire family would still be ostracized just for his sexual preference being revealed (no different than if he had suicided). Not a very good plan coming from a character who is supposed to be brilliant.

B-plot was equally muddled. What the heck was Kelly trying to get out the relationship again?

Re: TNG S3: Tin Man

There is a very basic problem with this ep...the conclusion is all too obvious following the initial briefing with Tam (e.g. Talby will find the Phoenix asteroids and they go off wandering the galaxy together). Coupled with the question of why Starfleet should be so concerned of something drifting around not accomplishing much anyway (however unique), the remainder of the story is pretty tedious.

Re: TNG S6: Frame of Mind

Agreed. Too many fakes and it wears on me. By the end, I was exhausted. Frankly, I'm surprised that they didn't do the trick at the end as he's tearing down the stage - e.g. "We have a lot of work to do" - spoken by 10forward's barkeep :P Also, being psychologically tortured immediately following performing a play about being psychologically tortured? C'mon. And how did the rescue of those hostages turn out anyway?? No resolution at all there.

Re: TNG S1: Conspiracy

Don't forget that at this episodes original broadcast date, splatter fans were getting courted by other series (Werewolf, Freddie's Nightmares, War Of The Worlds, Friday The 13th...to name a few). This episode was an experiment to try to sway part of that audience, which is precisely why it failed...badly. Trek simply does not mesh.
