Re: VOY S4: Concerning Flight

"Fire at will."

"I have the will, but not the means, Captain."

hahahahaha

It's a fun episode - but it's not doing anything clever. The biggest issue I have with making holograms indistinguishable to sentient beings and, further, explaining that they can "expand their program" is that you are effectively saying that all holograms would be protected and have rights under the Federation - as they are life forms. They would all pass a sentience test. They're possibly even a race (Voyager stupidly actually made this the case via "Photonics"). It seemed to be as early as The Next Generation that the lines were being blurred WAY too much in this regard. Moriarty was meant to be a total one off - but now it's like a few chosen commands to the computer - some tinkering to the "matrix" - and you have a new self-aware lifeform being born. Kind of takes away from Data being unique too, doesn't it? Dr Soong should just have visited a holodeck instead of all that programming slave labour shit.

If you want an army of Borg hunters - just replicate 1000000 military holograms and replicate 10000 ships. It destroys internal logic and realism long term. But, then, di I ever expect the majority of Trek writers to think this deeply? Of course not.

How about forgetting about new shows? Most people here, from what I gather, haven't even watched fucking Babylon 5. Jammer hasn't. As a sci-fi fan, that's a crime.

I get the feeling Jammer has some sort of ridiculous hatred for it tbh... to watch this poo and not B5....

Re: TNG S7: Firstborn

Why doesn't Worf or anyone else in this episode apparently notice that supposed non-relative (gin'tak) K'mtar has identical cranial ridges to Worf, Kurn and Alexander?


Because no one is looking for that. You don't assume "hey, he's a time traveller". I didn't notice on first viewing either.

Re: ENT S1: Dear Doctor

Daya - you are wrong. It's not an opinion.

The theory of evolution won't just change one day. That's not what the word theory implies. You are simply not clued up with the subject or the nature of a scientific theory of that nature. Theory refers only to the point that we don't know everything about it - not that it's some guesswork. The core details will be as true 10000 years from now as they are today.

Re: VOY S4: Waking Moments

God that entire comment was absolutely shite. That's what happens when you're ill. Let's try again. Please delete the two above.

Good episode. very good.

I'd have liked one more scene with the moon, though - at the very end. Chakotay is summoned to the Bridge and is horrified to see that the moon is on the viewscreen. Lettering appears to say "To be continued..." and then disappears with the bridge crew laughing at him (and us indirectly) because it's just a prank.

I think that could have proven very amusing and disorientating at the same time.

Re: TNG S1: Angel One

(Then again, I'm not sure any work of fiction could successfully dent DLPB's misplaced faith in his grasp of facts and logic.)

Not sure what point you're trying to make - but if it's that I find no work of fiction to be well written, then you should have used basic logic to reason why that can't be the case. You can't know something has shit writing until you know something with great writing (Babylon 5, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones S1-4 - for example).

Re: VOY S5: Timeless

Jammer said: "However, one problem I have with "Timeless" is the way this moral theme affects Chakotay. Specifically, just what motivates him to help Harry change 15 years of history."

Perhaps knowing well over 100 of his friends are dead... not really brain surgery, is it? Plus he's used to bending rules as former Marquis. Very good episode.

Re: VOY S4: Day of Honor

I generally like this episode. Nothing special. Possibly Final Fantasy VIII used it with Rinoa and Squall>

Any case, I thought I'd note a funny error..

"Computer!?"
"Com systems must be down."
30 seconds later

"The transporters are back online. Energize."
[com system suddenly working, I see]


haha.

Thoroughly enjoyable episode. And the actor playing the drunk did a good job. It's not easy to pull off even remotely.

In the future women will still be lying on their backs with legs in stirrups pushing a baby out into the hands of an arrogant, condescending, balding white man while sweating, screaming and trembling with pain. It’s comforting to know the status of women will never change!

Re: VOY S4: Living Witness

Does anyone else think this is a bit like the Babylon 5 episode "Deconstruction of Falling Stars", but much better and done properly.

-----------

Yup. And while I am one of the biggest Bab 5 fans, I rate the Bab 5 version as one of its worst episodes. Here, however, it's one of Voyager's best. It didn't really work that well in Bab 5, but it does here. Really well made episode.

Re: DS9 S6: Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night

Shock horror. An episode with Nerys that I like. Decent acting too, for a change.

Perhaps it's the director and writing staff to blame for the usual nonsense. This episode is good and has a nice twist to it also. Perhaps a bit shoe horned in that Dukat was with her mother but I'll let it pass.

From the occasions when we've been able to verify it with objective evidence, I've only got it right about half the time.

Re: TNG S4: The Drumhead

Been warning you all as to what the Left has become for a long time. And now we're seeing the full level of crazy end where it always wanted to... violence and totalitarianism.

Also, a white kid was shot at point blank range by a black person the other day... hardly a peep on mainstream media. No riots by "far right" white people. Hmmmmmmmm.
