Re: VOY S3: Sacred Ground

This thing puts the usual science vs. religion debate on its head. I usually ignore the technobbable as a plot device to get the writer through some impossible dilemma.

However here the theme is to pit "science" in the form of technobbable directly against the "spiritual". The only reason I (or rather my unconscious mind) find the "spiritual" non-explanation more convincing is because the "scientific" technobbable sounds even more ridiculous, as usual.

Re: VOY S4: One

The fatal radiation nonsense is too contrived, but otherwise, it is a nice episode. I agree with Jammer that the fake alien is a bad idea.

Re: VOY S4: Year of Hell, Part I

I used to hate alternative timeline stuff, but then I realized that it was just a way to reset things at the end of the day. Wow isn’t it exacting we beat up the ship with fires and spectacles and get a lot of important regulars killed, except we reset everything at the end by resetting the timeline. It is a modern day Deux ex machina.

Re: VOY S4: Prey

Oh, by the end of the show, I reached the conclusion that Janeway was unfit for command and that the Hirogens were nice guys. I mean they let Voyager go. Or perhaps they thought humans were so dumb and unworthy to be their preys.

Re: VOY S4: Prey

Seven makes far more sense than Janeway in this situation. By the end of the show, I began to wonder how these people lasted so long. It is even more puzzling that the rest of the crew doesn't challenge Janeway while she makes not just one, but a series of real bad decisions over time.

Okay, so this is fantasy TV show, but I still hope for a slim of realism: the universe runs on utterly impersonal mathematical laws without mercy. You are one ship on the run and with a very slim margin of survival.

Re: VOY S4: Demon

They more or less got the surface of Venus right.

Re: VOY S4: Living Witness

The funniest moment gotta be when Janeway activated the Borgs.

Re: VOY S2: Tuvix

The crew's change of reaction to Tuvix when they figure out a way to separate him is entirely believable and very human. This was very well explored in the TNG episode of Mark Twain. They found the five hundred year old Data's head in the mine. There was this wonderful conversation between Riker and Troi about death and then Data showed up and the conversation stopped. Data asked them why people changed their behavior lately.

Re: VOY S5: Course: Oblivion

It may not be well executed, especially the Janeway decision making part, but the main idea is quite original.

Re: VOY S7: Workforce

I think they should call this one “The Rescue of B’Elanna Torres”.

Re: VOY S6: Muse

This is one of the best. A thing about these so called "science fictions" on TV. There is no science in them, but technobabbles and excuses to blow up in unrealistic ways to satisfy certain juvenile impulses that we all have.

The fictions are more important and this writer always put fiction first and spectacles last. Darmok is another.

Re: TOS S1: The Devil in the Dark

I like this one very much, except for Spock's over the top acting during the mind-melt.

Re: TNG S6: Rightful Heir

The ponderous Klingon mumble jumble is really tiresome.
