Re: DS9 S3: Past Tense, Part II

Well, i must say, reading the comments have been even more fun than the episode itself. Since people started commenting in 2007 all the way to the end of 2019, we see some people complaining about the episode being a little preachy, to having to much preachy, and suddenly in the Trump era it becomes "lefty", it "has an agenda", "it's for liberals" and the like. We see their time resonating in their comments.
But i must say that after that i did have some pretty interesting discussions too. I agree that Star Trek never cares to explain how human society transitioned to a post-scarcity state, and indeed seems to contradict itself between different series in episodes. Also i agree it has nothing to do with communism - at least not in the way it's understood today, but it is a post-capitalist society. One we actually should aspire to. Star Trek is about an utopia that we should dream and aspire - there's dystopic sci-fi (or space fantasy) everywhere else already.

Re: TNG S5: The Inner Light

An interesting consequence of the kataans having this kind of technology is being able to offer to anyone a life experience in just 25 minutes. So before the civilization collapsed, they could have lived for centuries!

Re: TOS S3: Elaan of Troyius

I like it very much also. 3 stars at least. It was fun and with a lot of tension. Having a different culture in the ship is nice, and in fact we got two different species that think not alike. It would be better if the ambassador took the role of Kirk in the whole love story, though.

Re: TOS S2: Bread and Circuses

The only way I can stand these 'Parallel Earth' episodes is that I forced my mind to see them as a primitive Holodeck simulation training for the Enterprise. Of course these planets didn't exist! They are simulated as a training exercise for the crew.

Re: BSG S4: The Road Less Traveled

I really enjoyed this episode. Maybe it could be even rated as a 4 stars one. I agree with other comments saying it has a slow pacing, but I really like the pacing and the focus on the characters.

Aaron Douglas showed us an incredible work here. The plot involving Kara's mission may seem too simple when described, but the characters and the way actors show us them really make this plot work and be entertaining. Gaeta is a wonderful surprise since miniseries, when I thought he would be just a very intelligent guy in CIC.

I really missed 2 cut scenes from this episode: the one Brendan mentioned, and one showing us Athena talking to Helo about how the mission was different for her, first time no one would be suspicious on her.

Re: Star Trek: Nemesis

I should say there are many plot problems in this movie. It is sad the TNG movies could not be regular and better than the best TNG episodes.

However, I loved the darker tone Baird filmed the movie, all the design work in the Romulan ships and in the Enterprise E. The action scenes of the ships in the space firing each other were fantastic. I appreciate very much the design work of the Herman Zimmerman crew in the TNG movies, I really missed them in the Star Trek 2009 movie.
