Re: DSC S1: Context Is for Kings

Maybe the story is they use their potato gun, sorry their SPORE DRIVE...and disappear into the mirror universe, never to return. Or maybe the future? Could be why their tech isn't around anymore

Re: DSC S1: Context Is for Kings

Maybe this show would be better received if they had just came right out and called it Section (10)31? I mean, black alerts? Really? Why all the mystery surrounding the mystery?

Re: ENT S4: In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II

Thing about the Defiant and the supposed plothole with the jump on technology.....Defiant may or may not have been able to take on a fleet of nx's, but that's not really the point. Archer continuously refused suggestions of taking it to Starfleet and letting them try to reverse engineering it. As someone noted above, why would Archer/Sato want their potential rivals to have one? Also, doing that means keeping everybody else's eyes off the Defiant's schematics, so they know your ship is from 100 yrs in the future, but that's all. Enough into the future to make people's imaginations run wild, therefore, they wouldn't even need to take it into battle....just threatening their enemies with some outrageously powerful, but nonexistent weapons would be enough to rule through fear. For a little while, anyway. Until Mayweather or somebody comes to the realization that she's lying, at which point it's probably game over for everyone on the ship. Either that or the dumbfounded chief engineer would accidently set off a warp core breach. There is a novel, the rise and fall of empress Sato. Haven't read it but I bet it's interesting. I'm gonna go look it up on wiki and see how close I am lol

Re: ENT S4: Bound

How bout instead of bitching, oh sorry, umm, complaining, that the "episode" is sexist, which by the way is not possible, you could just see it as a fairly entertaining (after you pull the stick out your ass) look at how humanity USED to treat its women, in a far better future than where we're headed if we can't even bear to think about our past mistakes. Sure, scoop all that misogyny under the rug, we don't wanna see that because we would rather believe in the fairy tale that we're all perfect, just the way we arrrree and we always have been. Thats a load of shit. I suspect that blinding attitude is why you wouldn't think it might be possible for another sentient species besides us to develop a super high level of pheromones as self preservation, when that shit happens in nature EVERYWHERE. Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. How the hell we gonna learn from our past mistakes when they keep getting covered up? When people wanna act like everything's all nice and neat as long as nobody does anything to bust that bubble? If that's your attitude towards it, my advice would be to go back to watching Tom n Jerry cause this here for grownups

Re: ENT S4: The Aenar

Or was it hopeFULLY naive? Hmm....well, they both mean the same thing in this case, at least until our actual official first contact (and if E.T. is smart, we'll get one more like Independence Day than "Live long and prosper."........."Thanks." We all know some fool is gonna end up making it the beginning of In a Mirror, Darkly instead).

Re: ENT S4: The Aenar

Everybody can say what they will about Enterprise, love it or hate it. But I don't think anyone can deny that there is one thing that this show did better than all the rest. It was the most.........human. For once we got a cast, and a captain, who weren't constantly trying to invoke Shakespeare with every speech. And yea, like Kirk said of Spock, and then said TO him in TUC, "everybody's human." THAT, I believe, was Gene's original message, and it's a damn good one. Even the aliens are human on Star Trek. May not turn out that way in our universe, but that's the point cause Star Trek is supposed to be about humanity in all shapes, sizes, colors, AND personalities. I think Gene may have been hopelessly naive when he figured all human conflict would be gone by then, but what person living in 2017 would want to blame him for that, ya know?

Did nobody else see Alicia as a total cut n paste of Lily from First Contact? Right down to her "Jean-Luc, blow up the damn ship!" speech, only here it's "Archer, don't stop until you kill every last one of those bastards!" 🙄

Re: ENT S3: Azati Prime

Regarding the future changing when Daniels took Archer this time, it's simple. Daniels already planned on sending him back a few seconds before he left. Basically, with 2 Archers on Enterprise at once, so when the one leaves, the other is still there. Makes that whole subplot in Shockwave where Archer is stuck in the future really stupid....that should have been obvious from the start and one of the Prime Directives of the Department of Temporal Affairs: Always send someone from the past back a few seconds before you took them.

Re: ENT S4: Kir'Shara

Is it really so hard to comprehend or believe that B&B made the Vulcans the way they did in the beginning for the express purpose of giving them this arc later? I for one would like to think they had a rough outline of a full 7 season show before it began, leading into the Earth-Romulan war and concluding with the Federation's founding. I believe those first two seasons may have been better received if 9/11 hadn't happened, and then we would've gotten 7 seasons. Another criminal act to blame on bin laden-HE killed Enterprise!!!

Re: ENT S4: Awakening

Regarding Surak, I think it's implied that he was holding out hope for a non Vulcan-someone who could be objective-and that's why he didn't direct Syrran to the Kir-Shara. Its also possible he knew Archer was coming and therefore had Syrran out there to meet him. Not that he was actively trying to get Syrran killed, just making sure that Archer arrived safely. He probably planned to have Syrran willingly transfer the katra to Archer once they were safe.

Re: TNG S5: The Perfect Mate

@PeterG

I don't disagree with your analysis but I'd pull the sex of the character from it. One of the things I found most chilling about the empath situation was her total loss of self upon meeting her intended.

In this case, "I am for you" becomes a statement of absolute surrender and the death of her individuality. If not for coming out of stasis she would never have spent a moment identifying who she was.

Jammer says in his review that she is not a slave. I'm afraid I can't agree. She clearly shares that she has never, in her life, been alone. There has always been someone there to tell her what she was and what she would become.

In this exchange with you, what I have processed is that the women (a computer in TWS, I grant you) in both episodes have no real control over their actions. They've been programmed.

Re: TNG S5: The Perfect Mate

I'm surprised there's been no mention of the line, "I am for you..."

There had to be knowledge of the history of that line in universe. Was a double meaning intended?

Re: VOY S5: The Disease

Seven Of Nine not wanting to leave sickbay because of contamination?! Hahaha sure - she was waiting for Harry Kim to spill the beans on sex :-D She knew he was in love, too.

This episode is not so bad. And its also consistent with the series. In the episode what-its-name when the vidians attack and Janeway orders Kim to take young Naomi Wildman and get over to the other Voyager you can clearly hear the emotion in her voice. This time she is disappointed by Harry Kim - or maybe jealous - not unlike a mother when her son has a girlfriend.

Wang may not be the best actor, but he did pretty well in this episode.

People complain about Voyagers reset button, but even if there is some continuity, they will still complain. Voyager - and especially Harry Kim - can never do it right.

I would have liked to find out more about the generational ship and their technologies.

3 Shining Stars for this episode

Re: VOY S5: Gravity

I really enjoyed this episode. I could have done with less flashbacks and a little more showing in how much of an emotional struggle the grown up tuvok really is, but well.

I think the tuvok, doctor, paris trio works very well together. I also really like Picardos performance, he really shows how much the doctor has changed.

Speaking of acting, Im a little disappointed by Janeway and Mulgrews portrayel of her starting with season 5. Her Janeway seems hurried and impatient as well as more superficial. The character basically stays more or less the same. There isnt much development.
It looks a little like Mulgrew is going through the motions since shes established the character and the producers were satisfied with her initial acting. Also season 5 starts with "Night", an episode which allowed Mulgrew to spend more time with her family, a thing she had supposedly been "complaining" about.
I think Mulgrew didnt give her personal best since season 5 anymore, with some exceptions like "counterpoint" for instance.

What do you think?

Good episode!

Did anyone else feel signs of claustrophobia when Harry crawled up that chute? Im not sure I would have made it up there with somebody so close behind me.
