Re: TNG S5: I, Borg

On a re-watch, I have a couple of nagging nitpicks.

1. Hugh says that the Borg assimilate cultures, not individuals, but we see them assimilate plenty of individuals at other times. The Borg assimilated crewmembers in both Star Trek: First Contact and in Voyager (Seven of Nine and her parents). Geordi should have been picked up by the Borg rescue team; with his VISOR implant, the work had already been started for them.

2. The crew discusses their plan to hide in the sun's photosphere RIGHT IN FRONT OF HUGH, KNOWING that he's about to be re-integrated into the collective and have his memories shared, not to mention his memories of his time on the Enterprise. Shouldn't a juicy starship have been too big a prize to pass up? Or, maybe because it was only a scout ship, they didn't have the resources readily available?

Still, better than Star Trek: Discovery (I know, I know...cheap shot).

Re: ORV S1: New Dimensions

@SlackerInc:

"@Jack: "I also don’t think Yaphit was sexually harassing Claire — he propositioned her/asked her out repeatedly, she told him to knock it off or she’d report it and it was done. She took care of herself."

If he wasn't sexually harassing Claire, there would be nothing for her to threaten to report."

I think that it may have been ordinary, run-of-the-mill harassment/annoyance. Asking someone out on a date isn't nearly the same as asking them to engage in sexual activity.

Also, I found Claire's annoyance with Yaphit in this episode a little off-putting--she seemed annoyed with Yaphit and tended to discount his medical issue; she appeared to be willing to dismiss him almost out-of-hand despite Yaphit having a legitimate medical concern.

Re: DSC S1: Into the Forest I Go

@MadManMUC:

You just gave me something to think about...

In TOS "The Tholian Web", the Defiant was pulled into the interspatial rift in the 23rd century--Kirk & Company's era; the Defiant is clearly a 23rd century Constitution class vessel. However, in ENT "In A Mirror, Darkly I-II", they find the Defiant in Archer & Company's era--the 22nd century. WTF?

ST:D ostensibly takes place in the 23rd Century--so any mention of Empress Hoshi Sato the First should be in the history books in the Mirror Universe. They're too late for Hoshi, and, as you correctly point out, about 10 years too soon for the Tholians.

I wonder why I never noticed that plot canyon before, and I don't remember ENT explaining the time discrepancy. Can anyone help? I'm gonna have to watch them both again...

Re: Interstellar

Jammer: Great review. Your work reminds me so much of the late, great Roger Ebert, and I'm not saying that to blow smoke up your butt, either. Thanks for your work and thoughts.
