Re: TNG S5: Cause and Effect

Cause and Effect is a great episode and I love it.

BUT!! There's one huge problem I have with this episode. The problem is that this episode of TNG ends right at the most interesting part. All of the time loop shenanigans were great and the story they told with them landed pretty well; but this needed to be a two-part episode, the debrief between Picard and Dr. Crane would have been compelling and emotional.

You could have had a "fish out of water" type of episode as the second half, with the Enterprise crew helping the distraught crew of the Bozeman come to terms with the fact that everyone they know and love are dead, the world has changed dramatically, and Klingons are now accepted in polite society.

Great episode but a huge missed opportunity.

Re: TNG S1: Skin of Evil

I loved the post earlier about the “wrath of Armus” it would be an Armusgedden!

Re: DS9 S6: His Way

First up, I thoroughly enjoyed this light-hearted episode. I loved Vic: Like Jammer, I thought all the scenes of Odo and him were golden - and, despite it being a spoiler, I'm pleased to read he'll be coming back for more.

But onto the crux of my comment, my first on these reviews. I've enjoyed reading Jammer's thoughts as I've made my way through DS9 for the first time; I've also enjoyed reading everyone's comments from over the years. I decided to stop reading the comments a few seasons in after reading one too many spoilers.

Why did I come back?! I know it's a twenty year old show, but damn people! A little warning of spoilers wouldn't go amiss (he says, despite the comments being posted many moons ago).

I just learned of what seems to be a major death coming up in the show. I shouldn't have come back; why did I come back?!

But anyway, here's to you Jammer and here's to everyone else keeping the comments going all these years!

Re: DS9 S6: Valiant

I disagree with those comments that contend the episode was meant to be one-sided against Red Squad. I agree the execution was clumsy, and most Red Squad members were indeed presented as being too smug, arrogant, and rude to truly be likeable. But knowing that Ron Moore had himself intended to join the Navy (he was Navy ROTC), I suspect he actually intended to provide a somewhat sympathetic portrait of Red Squad as a young crew that is perhaps misguided, probably foolish, and clearly cocky, but still honorable and brave in their way. I don't think he quite pulled off the balancing act of allowing the viewers to, in Nog's words, "decide for themselves", but I figure that probably was the intent.
