Re: TNG S4: Qpid

@DeadBessie: totally agree re: the gals-smashing pots-on-heads thing. Apparently, Sirtis and McFadden were the only actors who had any actual training in fencing/swordfighting. Go figure.

I read somewhere that this episode was pretty much about capitalising on the Robin Hood mania that was happening at the time (such as Kevin Costner's crappy attempt)... On reflection, it probably makes sense then that this is one of the weaker, if not weakest, Q eps! (In the TNG universe at least - I'm not even touching Voyager!)

Having said that, the bit where Worf smashes Geordi's mandolin (or whatever it is) always makes me laugh, so I can't completely discount this episode.

Re: ENT S1: Shuttlepod One

One more thing that bugged me: Trip mentioning as fact the myth that hair and fingernails keep growing after you're dead. What the hey? Just as well for the Enterprise crew that he's the Chief Engineer and not the Ship's Doctor, I guess.

Still liked this episode, though.

Re: ENT S1: Shuttlepod One

I enjoyed this, though I found the "Enterprise has crashed/no, it hasn't really crashed" element confusing. My fault for heading in and out of the room while this episode was on, I suppose.

A couple of quibbles, though:

- I didn't really buy the idea of Reed as a ladykiller. I know he's meant to have intimacy issues, hence the casual relationship thing, but he just hasn't (so far, anyway) struck me as a love 'em-and-leave 'em kind of guy. The notion of him composing letters to a whole bunch of ex-girlfriends seemed a bit laboured.

- Like Jammer, I though Reed's T'Pol fantasy was dumb but I was willing to go along with it, until it got to the point where I wished he'd either just shut up about the 'Stinky' thing, or wake up.

Anyway, I wonder if this is (was) meant to be the start of a beautiful friendship between Reed and Tucker a la O'Brien and Bashir.

Re: ENT S1: Acquisition

Dearie me.

Surely there must be one Good Ferengi Episode out there - what a pity this ain't it.

@ Cloudane: Yes, the bit with Porthos made me smile, too. He should have been the breakout character of this series. Imagine: "Star Trek: Porthos"...

Re: VOY S2: Resistance

Finally: a deeply-moving episode of Voyager!

I loved the final scene between Janeway and Caylem - as the mother of a little girl myself, I really identified with Caylem's unwavering commitment to his 'daughter'. And Kate Mulgrew did a good job portraying grief, compassion, strength (and even love?) in an understated yet powerful way.

Does anyone else think Tuvok and Torres would make an unbeatable crime-fighting team?

My better half and I are watching Voyager for the first time (on DVD) - it seems like there's a hell of a lot of spatial anomalies or episodes that are either a bit meh or wtf. Please tell me there are more eps like "Resistance" and less (far less) than, say, "Elogium".

BTW: Jammer, congrats on getting hitched!
