Re: ANDR S2: The Things We Cannot Change

Samaritan,
Sorbo personally championed Wolfe's firing, only to reverse that stance when Andromeda (and any hope for Sorbo getting an A-list career) ended.

Re: VOY S6: Unimatrix Zero, Part I

The overuse of the Borg and the introduction of Seven of Nine was one of the things that made VGR the weakest of the modern Trek series by a long shot (aside from the repetition of TNG scripts with only the characters and ship changed). 39 starships are wiped out at Wolf 359. The Defiant, specifically designed to fight the Borg, had main power, shields and weapons down and was adrift "but salvageable" (as a courtesy for future DS9 plots) during the 2nd Borg attack in "First Contact". But with a former drone to punch in a few Borg commands, a 140-person scout ship (as Voyager was classified as), with 32 photon torpedoes (as the Borg scanned their defenses during Scorpion Part II") can go toe-to-toe with a Borg TACTICAL vessel, more heavily armed and armored than a regular cube that destroyed dozens of stronger Federation ships, and survive. One blast of a Borg tractor beam should have knocked out shields and weapons. A second blast should have knocked emergency power out and destroyed three or four decks, along with the port nacelle and put Janeway out of her misery. But thanks to her plot armor, Voyager went toe-to-toe and was still standing at the end, so Chakotay could give away the plot of Part 2. Ugh. I hated Seven of Nine. She and Janeway should have marooned the rest of the crew on a planet and gone off to have their little lesbian fantasies on Voyager alone. Chakotay, Kim, Torres and Paris were pretty much pushed aside. Instead we get Neelix, who was irritating beyond belief, The Doctor waxing about opera and literature, Tuvok being more illogical and emotional than humans, and Seven of Nine remaining in a state of permanent naiveté for three years except for Janeway's attempts to help 'humanize' her with her bipolar rantings.

Re: DS9 S7: Seventh Season Recap

I came across a blog which had an entry on DS9.

Re: VOY S7: Endgame

Voyager is like the Friday the 13th series: It's can be entertaining, but is too nonsensical to be considered good.

Re: BSG S4: No Exit

Just a couple of questions regarding the mythology. Was the supernova temple built by the 13th colony on their way to Earth? When was the prophecy of Pithia written? Was the prophecy written on Kobol? On Kobol, there is the temple of Athena, that had the location of Earth; did some thirteeners return from Earth back to Kobol? If all the Kobolians left 3600 years ago because of a war, why build a temple showing the location of Earth on Kobol? Did they know a war was imminent and build the temple of Athena on Kobol? Is this possibly where Pithia got her information? Seems to me I recall the Pithian prophecy was written some 3000 years before, but I'm not sure if this is correct. This would be after everyone left Kobol; perhaps Pithia is a 'prophet' of the ancient 12 colonies. This is all probably irrelavent and inconsequential; I just want to get the mythology straight in my mind as to the correct sequence of events. That'd be great if you would write a detailed article on the mythology (rather than in a 'nutshell'). I find this truly fascinating. Anyways, I really enjoy your reviews. Sincerely, s.

Re: ANDR S2: The Things We Cannot Change

When Picard first "arrives" on Kataan in TNG's "The Inner Light," he understandably asks: "What is this place?"
When Dylan first "arrives" in "Nowhere Land" in this episode, he seems to think nothing's wrong. Granted, being in bed with a beautiful woman (as he is here) may be pleasant, but I'd at least wonder how I got there. The fact that Dylan doesn't sets the tone for this sorry episode.

Re: DS9 S6: In the Pale Moonlight

First off, I loved this episode.
Having said that, I'm also sick & tired of people b!tching that TNG 'had no conflict' or 'had no arcs'. Excuse me??? There's Worf's constant clashes with both his own people & his Enterprise crewman(don't forget he went to DS9 later on). There were also the Borg arcs, which is quite impressive in that they only appeared once a season from Season 2("Q Who") on; hence they were never overused the way they were on Voyager.
Picard and Crusher also had notable, (somewhat) heated exchanges. Hell, even Pulaski(though I didn't much care for her) had moments of conflict. I think people are just P.O'ed that TNG was beginning to eclipse TOS in popularity within some circles so they decide to make up ways to shoot it down.

Re: DS9 S6: His Way

I'm sorry, but DS9 suffered from the Moonlighting-effect once Kira & Odo got together. Their relationship was much more moving unconsummated. I could say the same for Bashir & Ezri, but she wasn't on the show long enough to make as much of an impression.

Re: TNG S4: Legacy

I agree that Beth Toussaint looks a lot like Linda Hamilton. I also thought Carolyn Seymour(who played Romulans in both "Contagion" & "Face of the Enemy") looked a bit like Sarah Douglas
