Re: TNG S7: The Pegasus

Nick P,

I know you will probably never read this...but it's stated quite clearly in DS9 that the Romulans gave the Fed permission to use cloaking tech in the Defiant so they could use it as a forward scout against the Dominion.

In the beginning, they were to keep a Romulan crew member on board at all times but they relented on this and let it be Star Fleet crew only.

Re: DS9 S2: Sanctuary

Wow... hate for immigrants (or Jews... I can't really figure that out) is alive and well on these boards... fascinating. The aliens here don't claim ownership of Bajor. Their religious stories say there is a place they are destined to go, to help a suffering people. TO HELP. A lot of you are forgetting that part of the story.

This is what's so good about DS9.. not afraid to have an unhappy ending... and both sides had a point. Bajor couldn't support them if an emergency happened... and maybe the aliens could have helped Bajor.

And they weren't tossed out of Bajor and then returned. They just had a vision or religious belief of where they should go. In the end even the leader admitted Bajor was not katana (or whatever)

Very good episode.

Re: TNG S7: Genesis

I always hated this episode. I mean, it had some interesting parts. Like seeing monster Worf, I guess.

But the premise seems...beneath Star Trek.

This isn't sci-fi, it's fantasy. Things need to at least be plausible.

Re: TNG S5: Unification

What always annoyed me about this two-parter is why in the hell would Picard and Data go the planet? Isn't this exactly what Star Fleet Intelligence is for? Why would they risk the life of a captain and Data?

It's TV, I know.

Re: TNG S4: The Nth Degree

Great episode, but I feel that the 'advanced alien draws us in' trope is a bit overused. But to be fair, this was the early '90s.

But I could have sworn there was another alien that draws them to the center of the galaxy in a different episode of TNG. That one looked more like a cloud alien.

I like how they hinted that Broccoli retained some of the extra smarts. I like to think that his time on Voyager was this thing reasserting itself.

Re: DSC S1: Will You Take My Hand?

This was a pretty piss-poor finale to a mixed-bag of a first season.

The setup makes no sense. Why didn't they just use their foo foo magic jump drive to plant a bomb in the Klingon home world a long time ago? They couldn't pay some Orion pirates for the intel on where the Klingon planets are?

Ugh.

1 stars from me. I'll watch season 2 only if it explores the Romulans.

The only reason they didn't kill Kim in season 2 was that the actor was included in People's 1997 sexiest people alive list.

Re: DS9 S6: Honor Among Thieves

I wish they could have built this out as an arc, over a few episodes. As it is, Bilby seems awfully stupid.

Also, why is a highly valuable engineer non-com being sent on Star Fleet intelligence missions?

Re: DS9 S6: Waltz

HipsterDoofus,

I know you will probably never see this, but what the heck :P

The problem with your theory is that Dukat isn't human. His behavior could be—and from what we've seen may well be—normal for his people. They don't seem to have the same moral compass that we do. They seem to feel fine with acts of violence as long as they can justify them to themselves.

Re: DS9 S6: Sacrifice of Angels

Jason R.,

Yeah, imo, unless we assume that Sisko subconsciously knew that the wormhole aliens would help, his flight to the wormhole is just desperation and a bit crazy. I think it's possible he knew they would help since, you know.... his origins. But it's just speculation. The cannon is very murky on all of this.

"I could be wrong, but I don't think a ship needs to be travelling at warp speed in order to have a "warp signature."

Yeah, I think you're right about that. Makes sense.

Re: DS9 S6: Sacrifice of Angels

For those wondering why Sisko is leading the fleet--there used to be a rank above captain for times of war. It was Commodor. A commodor was in the field, a rank below admiral. They commanded battle wings. It can be assumed that Sisko is filling this role within Star Fleet in a time of war.

Re: DS9 S6: Sacrifice of Angels

So what was Sisko's plan exactly up to the point where he thought, "Huh, I'll just ask the wormhole aliens?"

Unless that was his plan all along once they were the only ones to break through the lines? I guess that makes more sense. The Emissary thing had to pay off at some point, I guess.

Good episode nonetheless, but weird.

Re: DS9 S5: In the Cards

Elliott,

Come on, man. Just because you think something is awful doesn't mean you're right. You seem to think that your opinion is gold or something. Consider the possibility that your preconceived notions prevent you from enjoying the show.

Re: DS9 S4: Hard Time

For those bickering about Picard's experience, keep in mind that he had already been taken over by the Borg and was able to return to duty. Clearly he has exceptional mental fortitude.

Re: DS9 S4: The Way of the Warrior

Great ep, but two things really bother me:

1. Odo was arguably the deadliest melee fighter they had on the station, and he was absolutely useless. Definitely underutilized here, and I wonder if it's beacuse they spend the whole budget on the space battle scenes (which were great, I admit)

2. The Star Fleet Ops crew defeating the Klingons with hand-to-hand while the Klingons were armed was totally unbelievable. Just total cartoonsville. I wish they'd come up with something more believable or creative.

Dirk Hartmann,

Ugh, I wish this was more like Reddit, because you will never read this...but....

*Odo* has trouble mimicking the humanoid face. The founders are centuries old; I doubt they have such troubles. Odo is a child compared to them.
