Re: TNG S2: The Measure of a Man

I just wanted to add that this episode provides the term toaster for artificial life. This apparently is where Battlestar Galactica reboot gets the concept for its artificial lifeforms.

Re: ENT S4: Divergence

Am I wrong for wanting to call the general's son Carlton?

Re: ENT S3: Chosen Realm

The writer seem to have put this episode together with the difficult choice made in the episode called damage. If you think about it, the choice that archer had to make in that damage episode mirrors the choice that the leader of the terrorist group made to kill a child in war. Think about how both episodes connect. One of the weaknesses of reviewing the television episode series episode by episode is that often times these types of connections are not made until Time and distance allow for proper reflection. Although this episode is somewhat mediocre and damage is somewhat well-made, both episodes act as a bookend of sorts. It is better to think of this series as a set than individual parts.

Re: DS9 S6: Tears of the Prophets

It is pretty clear from future episodes that everyone knows that Dukat killed Jadzia.. So the question for me remains: why did Worf not want revenge on Dukat? Why was his sole desire to fight a big battle in Jazia's name the only response to her death? Think back to the last time somebody killed one of his mates. The lieutenant commander grabbed a sword and went hunting after the guy. Also notice that in previous episodes it is been established that if Worf believes a Klingon warrior is entering The afterlife of the Klingons, he not only lets off a growl that shakes the room but he also opens the person's eyes. Remember when he kills Gowron in season seven? The answer to question is easy just like the answer to the other question. He does not open her eyes when he screams because it would look weird to do that for a woman. Also he does not vow revenge upon the series main bad guy because that is a job for the captain to take care of. But unfortunately this creates a conflict in the character of Worf. He should have been more Klingon and less Federation.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness

Throughout. I wondered why Robocop was used to the Federation at. And by the way, did you notice this was the same guy who played the head of Terra prime in that one episode of enterprise? What a total redirect! Why use that guy? And also consider that the name Harrison was one of those names for section 31, which was a clear misdirection I would've preferred that they actually make a Starfleet section 31 movie in which Kirk has to infiltrate section 31 in order to prevent war. Maybe he'd even run into a guy named Joe Bashir an ancestor of Dr. Julian Bashir on Star Trek space nine. That would've been 1000 times better than the film they created in which Kirk has to ally himself with ConMan and then get Scotty to shoot him in the face. After Star Trek six, I had my fill of Scottie shooting people in face.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness

After all that work in the first film to cut themselves free from continuity, why would they place this story in the context of all of the previous trek lore? Nonsense. They have so much to work with and still they have to go back and revisit Star Trek to the wrath of con in order to reverse every key plot point. The next Star Trek movie will probably be about returning to the alternate future to hunt down two whales named George and Gracie who are threatening to take over the earth unless Kirk promises to take them to Seaworld in a stolen Klingon bird o' prey. Oy!

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness

Here's wanting consistency. If Khan was woken up earlier, why didn't he look like Ricardo Montalban? Why wasn't he the same age as Ricardo Montalban in the episode Space seed? Why was he actually younger? That makes no sense. He would've been the same age as he was Kirk woke him up as when some nameless Federation admiral did years later. Also? Why is Kirk surprised when Khan tries to kill him at the end? After all, he had Scotty shoot the man with a phaser! Would you be surprised if you had somebody shot with a phaser and then they became your enemy at the end? I'm sure that Red Letter Media will get all of this, but also why was McCoy, Leonard H. reviving a dead Tribble that came from nowhere plot wise? Was he Kirk's personal shower loofa Tribble that was accidentally stepped on by one of the Klingons? By the way, how are we going to explain why the Klingons look different this time? Did Dr. Phlox go back to genetically work on the Klingons again and this time make sure nobody was able to grow hair on their thick Rocky craniums? This is no longer action schlock; this is jjschlock.

Re: TNG S6: Tapestry

Jammer, I see the story differently: Picard is so well-tuned as a result of his experiences, yet there are things about his own character that should be obvious to him--that the audience sees--that he is actually blind to. Of course, every character has a blind spot: this is so true as to be a trope. What makes this episode good tragedy--in that it features the death of a man and, with the man hypothetically rescued, the death of that man's career and resolve--is that Picard's blind spot is essentially a tragic flaw. My central criticism for this episode is that that tragic flaw revealed here did not appear in any significant form in another episode or feature.

Re: BSG S2: Flight of the Phoenix

Jamahl, I have to disagree about one point. It's possible that in revealing her condition to the entirety of the fleet, the President's gesture of revelation led to empathy from everyone. This general set-up more than explains why the flight crew would dedicate a plane to her.
