Re: TNG S5: Power Play

"synchronous polar orbit" is surely impossible no?

Re: TNG S3: The Ensigns of Command

I realise I'm four years late pointing this out but, Kieran, Chief O'Hara? Really?

Re: VOY S6: Barge of the Dead

@Xylar, I'm not sure anything in the episode explicitly confirms anything is real, it could all be a hallucination, medically induced or otherwise.

Re: VOY S4: Message in a Bottle

Xylar - turning off lifesupport would presumably just stop replenishing the air / filtering out CO2 etc, and turns off the heat. It doesn't mean that all the air suddenly vanishes, we've seen that else where as well. With only a few unconscious romulans breathing i'm sure there's plenty.

Re: VOY S4: Concerning Flight

Nick - "how the hell can Voayger track the bad guys when their computer core is stolen" - I think they made some reference to backup systems coming online but that it would take a few minutes for everything to kick in. Cold standby so to speak.

Kieran - "at one stage Da Vinci is shot and was surprised that he wasn't hurt. I thought he would then realise he's a hologram and have a breakdown which might have been interesting" - there's a reference to the da vinci character interpreting his surroundings through the limited parameters of the programmed character e.g. he interprets the aliens and strange planet as people in "america". He's a hologram of a renaissance character so he couldn't possibly conclude from being shot and unharmed that he's a hologram - something he's never conceived of. Now if it was explained to him that he was an artificial man etc. etc., he could.

As terrible episodes go at least this one made efforts to explain the terribleness....and yes i'm answering 5 year old questions

Re: VOY S4: Year of Hell, Part I

Tell me this - Kes experienced the Krenim in her possible future and warned the captain about the danger they would face passing through Krenim space in a year or something like that. But then in the gift, that timeline changes, Kes leaves the ship, meaning she won't ever experience that time line for real. So be it - the warning could still be valid as the krenim are still out there. HOWEVER - at the end of the gift she throws them 9500 light years closer to home. Surely that would throw them past the point where they would have met the krenim, unless somehow in the possible alternate future they'd also managed to jump the same distance some other way.

Re: DS9 S1: The Storyteller

*** If 16 years after the last season aired you're still worried about spoilers, than don't read this ***

There's a line in this where Bashir says to O'Brien something like "for all we know maybe you really were sent by the prophets", to which O'Brien replies "I was sent by Commander Sisko". Considering the outcome of the series, with Sisko's prophet mother, I thought this was an interesting coincidence / plot point when rewatching the series just now.

Re: TNG S2: Up the Long Ladder

@Tim, there is no such thing as St Pattie's day. Pattie is not short for Patrick, it's a girl's name. Just as an FYI, as they say....
