Re: VOY S3: Fair Trade

...long— time thoughts on Neelix: I often find him annoying, I hate his behaviour towards Tuvok...but:

if I were stranded in the Delta Quadrant, surrounded by dangerous things, I would love someone like him araound: dependable, in the kitchen, even if the food is not good, but always there, chattering every day banalities...he would give me a sense of security, I have often thought.

Re: TOS S1: Space Seed

...I always thought Cpt Kirk let them go to their planet out of fear...or caution. I think he did not feel it to be safe to have them anywhere near earth or the federation..

Re: VOY S1: Prime Factors

...After Reading the comments a second Time I am fascinated by the qoute how ones stories are essential to one ˋ s being and how they would Not be retold without Harrys permission.
For the first time I wish this alien society would have been more fleshed out— because they have standards and concepts about what constitutes the inner self, and that my Story is part of my personality..— just very alien.
And it makes the trading of stories a little bit gruesome: isnt it trading something very Important under the table?

( Sorry for the mistakes, autocorrect on this new device is crazy...)

Re: TNG S2: Loud as a Whisper

My main nitpick with this episode is just, how does Riva read lips so accurately, especially when the people saying things aren't even always speaking in his direction? I understand that having people repeat themselves a bunch doesn't make for good television, but he was really so on top of things it often seemed like he was just mute, rather than deaf and mute.

Re: TOS S2: Metamorphosis

"The idea of male and female are universal constants" ohhhhh my god.

Buddy, that's not even true on Earth. And I'm not talking asexually reproducing lizards- though that is a good counterargument- I'm talking plants. Literally. Just plants. Not every living thing is an animal, Kirk. I'm just- I'm blown away by that comment. I know TOS is a product of it's time and I'm not really criticizing the writing here, I'm just shocked that no one else seems to be as blown away by this comment as I am.

Re: DS9 S2: Sanctuary

This episode is problematic for a few reasons.

1. Translator issues. The universal translator is a very silly thing, and like the Force, it's better left unmentioned/unexplained. There is simply no way to just translate what people are saying if you have no clue what they talk about, no matter how long they speak. You need references.
Every other species from the Gamma Quadrant is understood right away but here the UT fails mysteriously. Star Trek is full of these plot dictated realities.

2. No focus. The episode spends too little time actually dealing with the point of the story. There should be long philosophical discussions about why the aliens should be allowed on Bajor and why not. Instead we get like two scenes.

3. The Planet ex machina. It's totally implausible that there would be any M-Class planets left unclaimed. Especially if they're close to another inhabited planet, as Dax mentions.

4. Stupid ending. Unnecessary. Everything about that boy character was unnecessary and didn't advance the plot one bit.

5. The fleet. There are three million Skrreeans. Let's assume they could pack a thousand on a ship - that's really pushing it, as that's the crew size of the Enterprise-D. That means they somehow stole 3000 SHIPS from their oppressors. Again, implausible.

Re: Star Trek: First Contact

"Don't begin to ask me how a non-Trekker would react, though — I wouldn't know."

It was in very late 2000 that my best friend decided that I needed to get into Trek. I had no use for sci-fi at the time.

I let her give me a crash course in the various Trek series and characters, but wasn't convinced. She knew I liked western and pioneering stories and thought that a first contact story might pique my interest.

So the very first Trek I saw was this movie, which she assured me was a really good sci-fi movie that even a non-Trekker/Trekkie could appreciate.

I knew nothing about the characters, the Borg, and remember being incredibly confused by the holodeck sequence, but I was completely entranced.

Then we got to Lily and Picard's final exchange:

"I envy you, the world you're going to."
"And I envy you, taking these first steps into a new frontier."

I could have been me conversing with Picard. I was hooked, on both Trek and sci-fi.

I started with TOS, which I fell in love with almost immediately, tried a few eps of TNG and had no use for it (still don't), and then fell madly in love with DS9. I eventually moved on to Firefly, Farscape, BSG, Stargate, Babylon 5, etc.

I am convinced that I would not be a fan of Trek or of any other sci-fi show or movie had someone who knew me too well not ordered me to sit down and watch this movie.

Re: VOY S7: Endgame

My biggest issue with the ending is that providing Seven, Chakotay, and Tuvok the fate she felt they deserved, Admiral Janeway stole the future of the rest of her crew, a future that was shown as being very happy, fulfilling, and productive. That show of favouritism doesn't seem right.

I also suspect that she stole from Chakotay and Seven the chance to be together (I think they would end up separating on Earth). Never mind how random the pairing was, it's one that makes sense to me and I feel that they got cheated.

You review is pitch perfect. This is an ending that is pure Voyager. What a disappointing series.
