Re: ENT S2: Stigma

The thing that made no sense is that there was no reason for T'Pol to hide the fact that she was mind-melded against her will. There was no logical purpose behind it. Not wanting to implicate all of mind-meldy-kind doesn't mean they should get a free pass on crime, nor does it somehow justify bigotry against an entire subgroup to call out one of said group for doing something wrong.

Re: ENT S1: Detained

I'm sorry but with episodes like this its really difficult to take the characters or the show seriously.

The warden guy Grat was reasonable from the start - he was in a difficult position but was accommodating to Archer and Mayweather and was prepared to release him as quickly as possible. When he was asking Archer for intel and Archer clammed up I could not have been any more confused: this is an enemy which is very dangerous, threatened the Enterprise and its crew, and is working with some shifty guy from the future. Why not give them any information about the Cabal? Why was it necessary to antagonize them?

I could only think that, if Picard had been in this situation, he would have waited out his time, then made an appeal to the government of this planet and went through the proper political channels to solve this, without violence.

How many of the guards at that facility were murdered? Was it worth making an enemy of this entire civilization to save 90 prisoners from one interment camp? Any Earth vessels in the future which are attacked on sight by this civilization will have no one else but Captain Archer to blame; their blood is on Archer's hands.

Re: VOY S4: Prey

@Yanks

Just because one's the "mother" and the other is the "teenager" doesn't mean the mother is right.

7 of 9 was taken aboard the ship against her will, humanized against her will, and forced to be a member of the crew against her will because Janeway decided that 7 of 9 didn't have the right to make her own choices so long as they were choices that she did not agree with. Picard would never have done that - in the end he would have recognized that she was ultimately a child of the borg now, and let her go back.

So here we are in a situation with a person on the ship who has been shanghaied and forced onto this ship against her will, and thus far she has mostly followed the captains orders... but she is not star fleet and she is not obligated to follow the captains orders whatever Janeway may think because she is still a prisoner there against her will.

As far as the Sisko and Worf example, I also thought that was incredibly stupid; especially given the fact that Sisko poisoned an entire world to get Eddington to turn himself in.
