Re: VOY S2: Deadlock

Great idea for a Voyager episode.

* Kim dies
* Neelix dies

And then the writers fumble what would've been a classic episode by bringing them both back.

Re: VOY S2: Projections

No way this is a 4-star episode. Maybe 3-stars, but no more. The basic flaw in the story is that we KNOW that Barclay story is the illusion because if it isn't, there is no Voyager tv series. So what we're left with is the Doctor looking anxious trying to figure out what is reality and that can only take you so far.

Here's where it might have been better. If the Barclay version referenced the messages received via the Romulan scientist and then built the simulation based on the known facts contained within that message (the crew makeup, the Kazon, etc.) Then we would still have the Voyager universe from the tv series but also with a reasonable belief that the Barclay story is true. It would have kept us guessing, rather than - well, quite frankly - annoyed.

Re: VOY S2: The 37's

Once I saw the truck in space, I could only flashback to the SNL skit:

and could never take the episode seriously after that.

Re: ENT S2: The Breach

It's all too apparent that the writer(s) never did any climbing because of the farcical climbing scenes. Also, climbing technology hasn't improved apparently since 1920 in the Trek universe. And I would have thought they would have anti-grav units or something.

No, the best part of that episode was the fate the tribble. After that, it was downhill ...

Re: ENT S2: The Seventh

Great episode. Regarding the comments of the implausability of T'Pol not using the stun setting, we should note what the story doesn't tell us. We don't whether Jossen was reaching for a deadly weapon or not, in fact we don't really know exactly how he was killed. And also note that T'Pol's memory is not completely reliable. All we know is that T'Pol was forced to do something that put her over the deep end. Whether that action was justified or not, smart or not, the episode does not answer. I'm fine with that level of ambiguity.

Re: ENT S2: Carbon Creek

I have to disagree (along with others) about your review. I found this a nice, quiet, charming episode. I would give it a solid 3 stars.

Re: ENT S1: Rogue Planet

So they oppose hunting but in the previous episode they were eating chicken Marsala? Did the chickens commit suicide or did they just wait for them to die of old age?
