Re: Frequently Asked Questions

If you did ever finish watching B5, you'd probably have to address all your Trek ratings here. Drop them all by 2 stars likely.

Re: DS9 S2: The Siege

Siege? More like Capitulation.

The premise makes no sense... and if the idiotic plan failed, they'd have lost the station entirely...

Just leaving a heavily armed station to terrorists? haha.

Re: DS9 S3: Second Skin

Preposterous nonsense, tbh. The very idea that Kira would be altered and dumped as some sort of dupe daughter is just silly. Too many plot holes as well.

Re: DS9 S2: Rules of Acquisition

A total missed opportunity to put some real teeth in this story and make it relevant to issues we face today with gender equality.
-----

I agree. I'm still waiting for men to get equal access and rights to their own children. Equal paternity leave compared to maternity leave. And women to get the same jail terms (for the same crimes) as men. Still waiting for society to address the fact men are way more likely to commit suicide and die younger in general.

Still waiting for women to do dangerous jobs and have equality down the sewers and digging up roads.

Still waiting for the media to shut up about a wage gap that's been debunked 1000000 times.

Re: DS9 S2: Rules of Acquisition

The only really stand-out moment was when Dax finds out that Pel is actually a woman. Up until Pel blurts out the secret Dax honestly thought she was a man. Yet, she had realized that Pel was in love with Quark. That means that Dax thought that Pel was homosexual and it didn't bother her. In fact, she didn't even see it as something worth making any kind of fuss over. That was nicely done - because it was subtle. They managed to put in a successful bit of social commentary without ramming it down the audiences' throats.
------

Nope. It was still being rammed down out throats - and it was still leftism. Never once will Trek be balanced. It's writers don't know how. Leftists don't know how. That's why they loot and bash and torch when someone becomes president and it isn't their candidate....

It's an entertaining episode, but just filled with none stop digs at capitalism [endless straw men]- even though communism has killed and enslaved far more - and as you rightly point out - the writers can't wait to collect their paycheck.

Re: TNG S5: Ensign Ro

Absolutely spot on, NoPoet - and sadly it goes all the way to jail time for the same crime and so on. Sadly, if you compare 100 random facebook pages for men and women, you will see the differences.

Re: TNG S2: Up the Long Ladder

A clone is a clone, Chrome. It's really that simple. It will be an exact biological duplicate, so your "inorganic" stage makes less sense that it started out with - which was zero sense.

I liked the episode for some mild comedy. Highlight is

"MY GOD, Picard! The place is a bloody death trap!! Lightning bolts falling from the ceiling!"

I don't really see it.

It doesn't matter what you see. That's reality. A bloodthirsty genocidal enemy is not going to let the son of one of the main leaders of opposition roam about the station being a reporter.

The kid would have been used as blackmail. That's the nature of war.

Re: DS9 S6: Rocks and Shoals

What a great captain, Sisko is. In the middle of a war, he offers to save the enemy who have and are wiping out as many people as possible.

Just what is the plan there? And why isn't Sisko held accountable for that? If anything went wrong or any other people died, he'd be to blame.

It just seemed to me to allow the writers a get out clause... so that killing the JH wasn't seen as "un-Starfleet".

Re: DS9 S6: A Time to Stand

Agreed. And you know what? It annoys me that they plain refuse to kill characters on Trek unless the actor actually wants to leave the show.

I mean, was it really necessary to find reasons for Nog and Jake and everyone but a red shirt keep status quo? Wouldn't it have been gutsy if Nog and Jake had been killed by the Jem Hadar... or Jake killed in revenge against Sisko? At least something.

Instead, they just conjure up more and more ridiculous reasons to keep characters on the show - when a death or gutsy storyline would have amounted to a far bigger emotional punch.

Re: DS9 S6: A Time to Stand

Caedus, you are absolutely spot on - apart from missing the fact that it isn't Jake who's the moron. It's the writers.

Yes, they honestly do think this is a believable story and what would happen during war time with a genocidal load of conquerors. As I wrote in another part of this forum... Jake would be used as blackmail against Sisko.

They have his son - A tactical advantage.

Re: DS9 S6: Statistical Probabilities

Star Trek and its writers MUST be right and perfect... 'cause Peter G. says so—even when real science disagrees. Not mindless fanboyism at all, Governor.

Re: DS9 S6: Statistical Probabilities

As far as chaos theory goes, you're just digging yourself a deeper hole unless you ante up and show what you've got.
------

Also, the only ones who have dug a hole are the writers - and you. Let me clue you in on a scientific reality. I shouldn't have to, but here goes. Chaos theory is real. Just because it has the word "theory" there does not make it a guess. Evolution is a "theory", but it's still a fact that we are descended from more basic and earlier life. It's also a fact that as time progresses, the number of variables becomes impossible to calculate and factor into a meaningful picture (and those variables are impossible for us to ever have a 100% knowledge of due in part to the realities of quantum mechanics) . We can't form any kind of accurate long term picture with the accuracy they do in this episode. In any, way, shape, or form. This episode literally is against science.

As others have noted (and you have ignored, like you have done your entire life), any number of things completely prove the entire premise of this episode false—not least something that actually happened (according to Trek canon) in DS9: The wormhole aliens made the Jem Hadar fleet disappear into thin air.

Please, oh wise one, tell us why this wasn't factored into Bashir and co's projection? As someone else notes above, who was to stop Q turning up and doing the same? How would Bashir and co have ANY IDEA that was or was not going to happen?

Stop wasting my time. And yours.

They are genetically engineered humans with brains different from ours.

That make them act totally moronic? Haha OK! I bow down to your rebuttal. Clearly, the writers are geniuses. Please, do yourself a favour and stop trying to defend stupid writing with stupid excuses. It makes you look even more foolish than this episode is. There are hundreds of issues with this episode, including a total misunderstanding of chaos theory and science. For me to accept for one second that this isn't bad writing, you'd need to explain all that away as well. "Oh, look, we can do square rooooots! We must be genetically engineeeered!"

The writers were using mental illness and savants as their base here, btw. It's obvious. And they got it totally wrong.

Re: DS9 S6: Statistical Probabilities

I thought I'd seen all the DS9 episodes... but this one I had not until just now. And I am fairly sure why that's the case. I was ready to skip it when I realized I must have done that a few times already.

MY GOD. Is this the worst episode of DS9? I think it might be. At least Move Along Home was not part of a major story arc. Within the first 5 minutes, I was thinking "Spock's Brain". Not a good sign. As most of you who read my posts will know... I happen to find too much of DS9 - and TV in general - badly written. Way too often.

1. Mentally ill people are nothing like these pathetic caricatures (as others above have noted) portray them as. In fact, mental illness is a broad term for a massively complicated set of psychological and physiological symptoms and behaviours. That guy who keeps saying "Hm! Hm!" - I wanted someone to burn his eyes out with a phaser.

2. Savants don't behave like this, either. Not even close.

3. Calculating a square root is not proof of being genetically engineered. Daniel Tammet can do just that almost instantly. I am willing to bet hundreds can. Was he genetically engineered? Is he a mutant? The writers aren't doing any research. Lazy bastards.

4. Which moron thinks it's okay to make an episode that completely disregards how chaos theory actually works? To actually peddle this mash potato is either showing their contempt for the audience, or their own stupidity - Probably both.

5. The episode goes from bad to worse when it makes Bashir look like a snivelling, cowardly, defeatist moron.

I could go on. And on. And on. It's a total farce of an episode.

Re: DS9 S4: Rejoined

Now you can have women kissing on Saturday afternoon TV and only the ultra religious would even worry about it. How times have changed.
----------

And the fun doesn't stop there, of course. Currently, the left is pushing for acceptance of paedophiles, the "mentally ill" that cause heinous crimes, while also sympathizing with terrorists. The new fads.

The "progressive" movement was never anything to do with true equality or championing the downtrodden; it was everything to do with self-hate and seeking out offence. We're poorer for it. Race relations under Obama, for example, are the worst in the last 50 years.

That's what the liberal left do. Wreck everything. All under the guise of goodness. I'm just glad that Hillary's attempt at using her gender to win the presidency backfired. In the dumbo '90s, she'd have succeeded. But we're moving away from this dogshit. Slowly but surely.

Re: TNG S6: Rascals

I always wish that sci-fis would branch off fun but totally stupid episodes, like this one, by adding some form of name indicator to the title. Something like "Non-canon" or "- B" Something. Because in no way can I go on accepting a sci-fi as serious when it utterly breaks the laws of science of its own universe.
