Re: TOS S1: Charlie X

How did they come up with that Charlie made when invoking his powers?

Re: TNG S7: Emergence

Why didn't they say "Computer, end program" early on?

Assuming that didn't work, how did they enter and exit the holodeck if it wasn't responding to their commands?

Re: TOS S3: Day of the Dove

"Kirk even stated that if both sides continued to fight it could go on for thousands of years
Imagine that"

And what of Lazarus?

Re: TOS S2: The Immunity Syndrome

My favorite exchange in this episode:

Mister Spock, analysis of that last burst of noise before we started losing power.
That sound was turbulence caused by the penetration of a boundary layer, Captain.
What boundary layer?
Boundary layer between what and what?
Between where we were and where we are.
Are you trying to be funny, Mister Spock?
It would never occur to me, Captain.

Sin, not sun.

Re: PIC S3: The Bounty

FWIW, most mainstream reviews of the episode are very positive. I happened to really enjoy it. So don’t feel like it’s a crime or sun against Trekkian lore to actually enjoy this episode!

Re: TOS S2: Amok Time

So the Star Fleet kerfuffle was resolved by T'Pau contacting Star Fleet. Why didn't T'Pau just do that in the first place?

This is like Commodore Mendez and the Talosians at the end of The Menagerie.

Re: PIC S3: Imposters

Well, they did demote Admiral Kirk to Captain, so at least Starfleet has a little discipline in the ranks. Then again, in the Kelvin universe Kirk was kicked out of Starfleet, but still ended up commanding that abomination they still called the "Enterprise."

I wish my boss at work was this forgiving during review periods.

Re: PIC S3: Imposters

@Booming. I was beginning to think it was just me. If nothing else, PS3 proves that if repeatedly set the bar so very low than even mediocre Trek will seem spectacular by comparison.

I thought it was hysterical when Ro herself stated that she was sent to prison *again,* then rehabilitated *again,* etc. It's as if they just repeated the same plot points from some other Trek show disguised as "Character Development."

Re: PIC S3: No Win Scenario

Stop making excuses for bad writing (cursing every other sentence isn't drama it's just lazy), production values (how many people have commented about how dark the sets are) and poor character acting frequently dismissed by "these characters have changed in 20 years, so..." I've changed in 20 years too, so while I think most of NuTrek is awful, I'm still a Star Trek fan and look forward to watching each week.

I'm simply not going to compromise my opinions because it's fashionable to do so or this is best we're going to get. Demand better! Sometimes, they actually respond to fan criticism and attempt to do so.

Re: PIC S3: No Win Scenario

"Holodecks having independent power systems that couldn't be drawn into main ship power was actually something utilized and referenced several times in Voyager." What?!

In the TNG episode "Booby Trap" (Season 3 Episode 6 for those of you keeping score at home), Geordi uses the Holodeck in dire circumstances to consult with a facsimile of Dr. Leah Brahms who designed the Galaxy Class Warp systems. When the Enterprise -D continues to lose power, the Holodeck program is automatically discontinued to conserver energy and Geordi has to ask Picard to override the computer to reinstate the program?

"it was silly then, and remains silly now" is putting it kindly to say the least.

The real reason they needed a Holdback scene in this episode wasn't just the absurd need for more lame story exposition before certain death, but in reality they had spent so much $$$ on that 10-forward set for S2, they kept using it to recoup their investment. Think I'm making this up? Just read any of the production Twitter accounts from Dave Blass or Liz Kloczkowski.

Re: TOS S1: The Menagerie

All these histrionics only to have the real Commodore Mendez at the starbase give his permission after being directly contacted by the Talosians.

Re: PIC S3: Disengage

Some of the above reviews are overly negative. We're still early in the season, but so far, season 3 isn't wasting our time like seasons 1 and 2 tended to do. I'll be surprised if Jammer goes below 3 stars for this episode.

Re: TNG S1: Where No One Has Gone Before

Picard was a real dick for pretty much the entire first season.

He's a fool. A fool. He'd seen those points and he hadn't noticed their condition.

Re: TOS S1: The Man Trap

That animated plant was clearly a gloved hand. Maybe it was Thing at a drag party.

Re: TOS S3: Let That Be Your Last Battlefield

Why does a 23rd-century computer sound like a 1960s teletype?

Re: TOS S2: The Gamesters of Triskelion

Kirk stepped into the green area several times and he was not deprived of any weapon.

Re: TOS S2: The Deadly Years

So Spock walks into sickbay with a beaker full of antidote. He hands it to Nurse Chapel who sets it on a table. What does Dr. Wallace inject Kirk with?

And why did the Romulans pause their attack while Kirk dictated his message to Starfleet Command?

Re: TOS S2: Friday's Child

It was neat to see Sulu's targeting scanner display deploy out of the helm console.

Maybe we can't break it, but I'll bet you credits to navy beans we can put a dent in it.
