Re: DS9 S7: Take Me Out to the Holosuite

Well, I really like this episode and to those who disagree with me I say this: "Death to the opposition!"

Re: Star Trek (2009)

I totally agree with Jammer that "Star Trek" was overall a very good movie. Let's face it: They were dealing with iconic figures and IMO the main task of the film makers was to create a new Kirk, Spock, McCoy, etc. that people would accept. They succeeded admirably through great casting and character interaction. The storyline may have been a bit weak but hopefully, with this new crew established and accepted, they can create a sequel that will present us with a deeper plot instead of letting Trek spiral downward into just another action franchise.

Re: Star Trek: Generations

What ruined this movie for me wasn't Soran's flawed reasoning of how to enter the Nexus or Kirk's unheroic death retrieving a remote control but rather Data's emotion chip. What made Data so endearing in TNG were his charming attempts to duplicate, and therefore hopefully understand, human emotions and human relationships. Here he is given emotions and it results in a very unlikable Data. In the TNG episode "Deja Q", Q rewards Data with an actual emotion for a moment, a moment in which Data finds himself having a laughing fit the kind of which we have all experienced at one time or another. I can't speak for anyone else but I laughed right along with Data watching that episode because his laughter seemed genuine. In "Generations" this same Data, who thanks to the chip understands the concept of humor, becomes an idiot whose laughter seems forced and completely without humor. Instead of laughing I cringed. I do recognize that fear can be overwhelming and while Data's reaction to experiencing it for the first time is realistic I found I didn't really like a cowardly Data either, nor the swearing Data aboard the soon to be demolished Enterprise. I suppose the only time I found Data's chip to be redeeming was his touching reaction when he found Spot unharmed. Other than that give me the questing Data over the Data who has found what he has been seeking and ends up being less instead of more.

Re: DS9 S5: In the Cards

I've always enjoyed the unlikely friendship between Jake and Nog and so always thoroughly enjoy "In the Cards". While Nog may have been initially hooked into this crazy venture by Jake's cunning manipulation of Nogs debt to Captain Sisko, I believe that it is actually his love for his best friend that keeps Nog from bowing out as the threat to his Starfleet career builds with each successive mission to obtain something else for Geiger. It beautifully displays to what lengths we will go for those we care most about.

Re: DS9 S4: Little Green Men

Jammer, while the importance of short term quarterly gains quote is a great one my favorite from this episode is Quarks reference to cigarettes: "If they'll buy poison, they'll buy anything". How true, and of course I was smoking a cigarette at the time. I figure I'd be an easy mark for Quark!

Re: DS9 S5: Trials and Tribble-ations

Doc, the only one I saw with a green shirt was Kirk (who also was the only one showing a bit of chest!) All the other command level officers were wearing gold. Anywho, as a side note I think that "Trials and Tribble-ations" is the only episode on the entire DVD collection that has its own specialized audio on the episode sub-menu; Tribble cooing substitutes for the usual station computer beeps and boops. Like Odo says, they are very pleasing sounds!
