Re: DSC S3: That Hope Is You, Part 2

@Nolan

Loved your take on Burnham being Kurtzman insert character. It all makes sense now.

Re: TNG S5: The Game

Thought this was a really fun but I didn't make the connection with drug addiction or video games. I just thought of it as a cool Invasion of the Body Snatchers type story much like TOS' This Side of Paradise, but the game was a cleverer and more topical way to do it.

They could've hinted that Wesley or Ashley Judd had repaired Data but that's a small nitpick.

In the Worf/Kilingon Civil War episodes, it's sometimes difficult to tell what's exactly happening to who or what. This was very easy to follow and liked how silly it was.

Re: TOS S3: The Savage Curtain

"In our century, we've learned not to fear words" - Uhura

We gotta give Roddenberry props for writing an actual clever scene for once. Progressive Lincoln using an outdated racist term and Uhura who lives in a utopian society doesn't even know why she should be offended.

If that same scene was in Star Trek Picard: "What a charming woman". "actually I'm gender fluid. HOW DARE YOU oppress me with your Patriarchal tyranny!!!"

Re: DSC S3: Die Trying

I thought all the characters were extremely unlikeable, the straight white dude, the gay men, the asian woman, the "special needs" girl.

As a human, Hopefully I was not "represented" by these snarky, intolerant, sarcastic, mean-spirited characters that are also human.

Nice job writers.

But in all seriousness, the women in ST:P browbeating an 80 year white man was extremely disturbing. The only explanation is that the writers of that show are psychopaths.

Re: DSC S3: Far From Home

So the writers travel 900 years into the future to escape the burden of Trek Continuity and the 2nd episode is set almost entirely in a saloon, and we see a mining town ripped from a Studio Ghibli movie.

Seems like an incredible lack of imagination. Not only that but all the Humans and Aliens act exactly the same as humans do now, everyone is spiteful, snarky, sarcastic and morally repugnant.

Either the characters are written to be psychopaths or it's the writers projecting that quality on to them. What a heinous portrayal of the future.

Re: TOS S1: Shore Leave

As to the crew not realising what was happening, Maybe we were supposed to think that aliens were trying to kill the crew using their own memories/fantasies. That's why they had those ominous shots of an antenna spying on them and the twist that it's an amusement park makes sense.

I really liked this one and the location filming was very nice. Episodes like this make the show feel more epic than if they had filmed entirely on sound stages.

@Madbaggins

This is better than Balance of Terror definitely.

Re: TNG S3: A Matter of Perspective

Rashomon Holodeck is a cool high-concept idea but the actual scenes re-enacted weren't very interesting and kind of tedious to get through.

Wouldn't the story have been more fitting if Riker was accused of sexual harassment or rape? It would've been way more believable than being a murder suspect.

But I guess they didn't want to open that can of worms.

You don't think a person could have consensual sex but then later be convinced that they were the victim of sex assault?

Confabulation is not the same as lying.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness

One word to sum up the movie - superficial.

The references (see laughable rip-offs) of TWOK are horrible - Spock yelling Khan's name, the screen with the hands of Spock and Kirk separated by the glass, the direct quotes ('You'll flood the whole compartment!'). they make me think that Abrams and Co think Star Trek is a collection of lines and scenes that can be repeated with slight changes to make new Star Trek.

Kirk still acts like a bratty kid and Spock like a moody teenager. The visuals are great, but the plot falls apart if one thinks about it (what motivates these people? How does one build a giant starship in the solar system that no one notices? And on and on...

The whole time I kept thinking to myself how great TWOK was and how perfect the acting, dialogue, and acting was. In fact, all I wanted to do was go home and pop in the TWOK dvd.

This movie took TWOK and made something almost silly in its poor execution.
