Re: ENT S4: Babel One

Jammer, why didn't you just stop watching the UPN trailers? You're going to watch the episodes anyway, so why spoil any part of them with stupid previews?

Re: ENT S2: Precious Cargo

Alright... I rated the previous episode 0/5 and said it is the worst episode of Star Trek I have ever seen. Well, it's not anymore! Even though the story was weak and the guest "actress" was painful to watch, my main issue is with the episode's directing and editing. However, only the scenes with the princess and Trip seemed to suffer from that problem, so maybe they just ended up with hours of shitty takes (thanks to the "actress") and just couldn't piece together anything better in the end. Can
I give -1/5 to this?

Re: ENT S2: Vanishing Point

@Justus said: "this was not a good episode. The show telegraphs pretty early that Hoshi is not experiencing reality".

For that reason, I found this episode to be the worst of Trek I've ever watched (I've seen all episodes of TOS, TNG, DS9 and VOY)! Uh... It had so much potential with good directing and acting, but as it was clear what the mystery was from so early on, I just got really bored -- and getting bored while watching a TV show rarely, if ever, happens to me. 0/5 stars.

Re: VOY S7: Lineage

@Michael (aka @Quincy, I guess), @mephyve and @DLPB

Wow, you guys are special kind of fucktards, are you not? Michael has had his share of responses already, so I'll let that be... Mephyve, always commenting every episode with a one sentence long "review" that contribute nothing to this site (i.e., they are basically either "hospital episode(*)" or "fun episode(****)"). DLPB, you must realize how idiotic it is to comment here before you have even finished the damn episode in question?

You guys suck.

(Like others on this comment section, I had to vent out this frustration that had built up during several months of watching Voyager on Netflix and visiting Jammer's reviews after each episode. Regarding "Lineage", it was an episode that really surprised me; when I realized what its all about, I expected the worst, but I ended up really enjoying it and it even got me a bit emotional! I'd say 3 to 3,5 stars in a Jammer-scale.)

Re: Vote to Rename Voyager

When it comes to chronological order of the Star Trek TV-shows, I feel that this series could've been called Star Trek: The First Letdown.

Anyway, Star Trek: Seven of Nine is a very accurate one as well.

Re: VOY S6: Blink of an Eye

@Skeptical: "I was also initially surprised that no other expeditions to the skyship occurred after the first one, but I suppose if it didn't come back that confirmed in everyone's mind that the skyship was hostile."

@N: "[...] a tiresome "Voyager in jeopardy" climax where the shields go down to whatever percent but we know there's no real danger."

@Kai: "Why do the aliens shoot at Voyager and have tricobald missiles... But don't even send another ship? Then... They have the best technology, send two ships with tractor beams that save Voyager...
Ridiculous."

Yeah, that ending almost ruined the episode for me. I just don't find in plausible that the alien civilization would try to destroy Voyager after millenias of being obsessed about it. Oh well...

@John Harmon: "Well...The Orville certainly ripped this episode off huh?"

Yep :)

Re: VOY S5: Someone to Watch Over Me

@John: "P.S. What the fuck is wrong with Paris? You don't admit that you made a bet with the Doctor in front of Seven! Are you an idiot?"

Paris wasn't an idiot; he was losing that bet and by making Seven get upset and leave he turned the tides and ended up winning!

Re: VOY S5: The Disease

I actually liked this episode! I felt chemistry between Harry and the alien chick (who was damn attractive--to put it mildly) and both directing (e.g., movement of the camera during few scenes instead of using regular cuts from one camera angle to another) and acting were handled pretty well in this episode. Anyway, the very ending was dissappointing and I'll use quotes from previous comments to prove my point:

@K'Elvis: "And why doesn't Kim leave with Tal, or why doesn't Tal stay with Kim? They are so supposedly deeply in love, but break it off so easily. Tal's breaking away from her society, why not come along with Kim on Voyager? If this biochemical bond is so strong, would they really have left each other? It's the usual Trek thing that the relationship has to end by the end of the episode one way or another."

@Kristi R: "And, oh, I just met the man of my dreams, but I'm not going with him. Riiight."

@Mazra: "And why didn't Tal join Voyager? She was obviously romantically involved with Kim, and she wanted to explore the galaxy. Any reason why she couldn't become Harry's girl? I'd give it 2 stars."

WTF, indeed...

Re: DSC S1: Vaulting Ambition

Uh... Not much to say here. All these supposed plot twists have been so predictable that when they are finally revealed, I just feel lack of excitement instead of being thrilled by the show. I'm afraid STD will have a very low rewatchability...

Re: VOY S4: Revulsion

Jammer: "Leland Orser's performance as the maniacal Dejaren is commendable in its energy. (It's also surprisingly similar to what he's done before. I've only seen him in one other role: a minor character in David Fincher's Seven, where he played a peripheral victim to a rather ghastly crime. He brought a severe sense of nervousness and torment to that role, and it's a characteristic that has carried over into Dejaren.)"

It's kind of funny that the above holds true even if you replace "David Fincher's Seven" with "Jean-Perre Jeunet's Alien: Resurrection".

Re: VOY S4: The Gift

@Dave: "I do laugh how they put Seven in HEELS in the outfit in this episide. Yeah, you want her to look sexy, and she would have looked just as incredible in flats. [...] I think we can all agree the rest of her would have looked the same from the ankles up to the head if she were in flats so the people in charge didn't need the heels. [...] I don't know about anyone else, I know for me that I wasn't looking at her footwear when she was on screen."

So, Dave, it's not about looking at her footwear and you're dead wrong when saying that the rest of her would have looked the same from ankles up. Heels change the way the entire body moves, including the pelvis, hips, legs, knees, feet and even the shoulders--and that in a manner that men find more attractive. More "importantly", a high heel raises the angle of a woman's buttocks by 30 to 40 degrees, which makes women look younger and again appeals more to men's visual preferences. Also, it must change the shape of the calves, right? Additionally, when women wear high heels they are creating an optical illusion that makes their legs look longer; torso to leg length ratio is yet again something that affects how attractive men perceive women.

All that being said, I do think it's very silly that 7of9 wears high heels :D

Re: ORV S1: Old Wounds

The first episode aired on Fox in Finland yesterday and I quite liked it; I wasn't expecting it to make me laugh as much as it did! If the show was not clearly set in the Star Trek universe, I'm quite sure the humour would've annoyed me instead of entertaining me as much as it did. I've been watching TOS, DS9, TNG, and currently VOY almost daily for the past few years (maybe not 100 % literally), so seeing the crew behave and talk in this way is almost comedic gold for me :) Jammer-style rating! Hmm... 2.5/4, I guess. Maybe even weak 3 stars.

Re: VOY S3: Remember

Huh, no William B's review/comments here?

@SteveRage: "I had no emotional investment in these "Regressives" so couldn't really be bothered if they were being exterminated or not...... Sorry."

Really? I find your lack of empathy disturbing.

@Dave: "But I have to wonder, if the Regressives were all killed, where did these Fima Colonists come from? I assumed throughout the entire episode that the new home they kept mentioning was Fima Colony. Or did they create two colonies and kill off one of them? In that case, why would they go to all that trouble of starting a second colony? It all lends too much credency to the theory that these memories aren't 100% accurate after all."

I'm quite sure they created only one colony for themselves and the Regressives were just killed in a spacecraft that was supposed to take them to their new planet/colony.

Re: DSC S1: Into the Forest I Go

@J-P "Discovery is now in a mirror universe (prime verse?)"

My first thought after the last jump was that hopefully they ended up in the prime universe now! I think ST:Disco is an ok series, but it just doesn't make any damn sense that it's supposed to take place in the same universe as TOS, TNG and DS9. Most likely, I'll end up being dissappointed in January, but one can always wish...

Re: TNG S7: Journey's End

I'll just quote 'davib b', as he pretty much wrote down my exact thoughts: "I'm still watching the series in order for the first time and quite honestly I found this the dumbest episode out of all seven seasons. [...] Wesley ... wow. What a flat out horrible way to destroy a perfectly competent character. Yes, I know he wasn't loved by most Trekkies, but I actually liked the thought of an awkward, outcast genius teenager [...]. But really… vision quests? Daddy says "don't follow me"? Oh… and by the way, I'm nearly God-like? Where the hell did THAT come from?!?!?!"

I just hated this episode. All that Indian stuff was horrible as well; it reminded me of some really bad MacGyver episodes from the 80s...

Re: DS9 S4: Our Man Bashir

@Chrome

That colonel part was not the only thing that @petulant spoiled in his comment; he also talked about characters that are going to die during the series and future alliances formed with the Dominion!!!

I'd never say anything like that in the context of episode-based reviews without spending a single second of my life for typing "SPOILERS:" first...

Re: DS9 S7: Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges

@Brendan

"Can people NOT post spoilers in their comments? Completely ruined the ending of DS9 for me."

Right? People say you should not read the comments of an episode of a show that is over a decade old, but is it really too much to ask for people to give a spoiler warning---like, just typing one word: "SPOILERS:"---when they're about to discuss events that happen later in the series than in the episode in question?

It's entertaining to come here after watching a DS9 episode, read Jammer's review of it, and then also see what others have felt about it in the comments. Besides, the comment section of the early episodes didn't really have any spoilers in them, so when I finally had the "pleasure" of reading one, it really took me by surprise; my earlier experiences on this website had given me a mindset that people limit their discussion on each episode without reflecting it against the future events in the series---at least without giving a heads up first.

Re: DS9 S5: Children of Time

So, if (the alternative) Dax really had spent 200 years figuring out how to preserve the colony once Defiant arrives on the planet "again for the first time", you'd assume she/he would have come up with a plan that ensures that the crew of Defiant won't encounter them or, better yet, even find out about any existense of life on the planet with their sensors, because everything that is said and shown in this episode indicates that (the alternative) Defiant got stranded on an unpopulated planet before going accidentally back in time while exiting the planet. But in this episode Dax is the one to take first contact right away and to happily provide the crew information about what happened 200 hundred years ago, which surely would change everything about how the colony was formed the first time around! The colonists doomed themselves by contacting their ancestors and telling them about their future. Maybe Odo did the right thing.
