Re: DS9 S5: Ferengi Love Songs

I like Quark and (most of the time) Rom, but this was a painful episode to watch. Don't understand all the hate for "Let He Who Is Without Sin…" which got a zero star rating when (1.5 to 2 stars seems more appropriate) but this episode falls below that. Would rate this at a half star, and that's being generous.

Re: DS9 S4: Fourth Season Recap

A very strong, and the growth of most of the main cast.

My one peeve is with the comments feed - I really wish persons would stick to commenting on the episode itself that was reviewed by Jammer (Jammer himself religiously sticks to the episode and only quotes other reviews for their related premises).

I know this show has long since aired, but I can do without Commenters going on about where storylines ultimately deviated towards in subsequent seasons and episodes, and giving out spoilers in the process. Yes the show is old, but no excuse if not sticking to the current episode and not posting a spoiler alert.

Re: DS9 S5: Trials and Tribble-ations

Brilliant episode. Watching DS9 simultaneously with Voyager and liked both tributes, but absolutely LOVED this DS9 iteration. I was never crazy about Dax, but since episode 1 of S5, I am seeing little things to give her more of a playful character, and she's growing on me, sexed overtones notwithstanding.

All the DS9 characters used had a moment to shine and I like that, and I also liked that care was taken to give all the original TOS cast a chance on the screen! Kudos for the scene where Sisko and Dax were dropping tribbles on Kirk's head where it was made to look like the original footage. Brilliant!

This can be nothing less than 5 stars, and DS9's stories certainly hold their own when held against TNG.

Re: VOY S2: Resolutions

@John mentioned:

"Did anybody catch Janeway's last line in this episode? She told Chakotay that he is responsible for fixing the premature firing of the phaser cannons!"

Agree that this is a highly suspicious line! Sex or no sex, the relationship deepened significantly, as the deliberate avoidance of eye contact once back on the ship.

@Nolan

Appreciate the feedback and context!

Have since also found a viewing-order guide that was helpful (never mind the silly name of the URL):

Re: Star Trek: First Contact

I am oh so late to this party but I'm well underway in my marathon of TNG (complete), DS9 (on S3), Voyager (S1) and the 1st two TNG movies having just completed First Contact.

I absolutely loved it, especially after being a little let down by Generations' treatment of Kirk's demise and the 'cameos' of the core support cast. The writers seemed to have taken note and given each of the latter mentioned a decent piece of the pie.

I am surprised no one commended the following visuals/ideas that were well done:

1) The new Federation uniforms were a great standout and the lack of such a new spin on Generations was disappointing but made up for here. They looked sharp!

2) The Enterprise E's sleek modifications definitely made the viewer believe that this ain't no TV series but the Big Leagues. Even the warp effect got an upgrade.

3) Geordie's upgraded, new eyes were a magnificent idea and made me wonder why this was not thought of sooner, but lends itself to the idea of the Federation's technology naturally evolving.

4) Liked the evolution of Worf commanding the Defiant, though he relinquishes his captaincy and falls back into his role a bit too easily after being beamed back on board the Enterprise. Would have been nice to get some more insight into how he was selected and by whom.

5) This was mentioned before but Data's more controlled use of his emotion chip was much welcomed.

6) Glad to see the Borg a formidable force again after the Lore storyline/ involvement in TNG derailed that potency somewhat, leaving their demise to interpretation.

This outing gets a 3.5 from me.
