Re: VOY S6: Good Shepherd

Mortimer Harren (Jay Underwood) reminded me of Sheldon (Big Bang). This episode was written 7 years before Big Bang though.

Re: ORV S2: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow

I was worried about young Kelly's rejection at first, but then I remembered that we were told only that he called her at 9:00 AM the next day. It was also implied that this was not an appropriate time to call and was probably a little off putting to most people. So, since Kelly's memory was wiped (Dr. Finn usually knows what she is doing), I convinced my self that in the original timeline, young Kelly probably react by saying that she didn't see it working out, Ed Mercer is very strong willed and probably got her to come around after the initial reaction. Oh well, at least I was able to satisfy myself with this, but I am not very hard to convince.

Re: DS9 S5: Trials and Tribble-ations

I love this episode as much as most people above but for me there's still a gaping plot hole with the Klingons in the bar - namely why don't Bashir and the others recognise them for what they are? Sure, they don't look anything like the Klingons that they've known all their lives but surely there are pictorial records from Kirk's time, showing what they were like back then?

Re: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

I'm so glad they didn't follow the original plan of having Eddie Murphy in this film. It could well have been another 'Superman III', which was effectively a Richard Pryor film in which Superman happens to appear.

But I love the whole trial scene at the end, when Kirk is busted back to Captain but then assigned the command of a starship, and then the dramatic reveal of the Enterprise-A...

Re: Star Trek III: The Search For Spock

With regard to Jay's comment, my understanding was that the katra would be temporarily stored in a host so it could be taken to the repository on Vulcan - this was standard procedure. The process that the priestess was talking about, which hadn't been done in ages, was reuniting it with the physical body.

Re: TOS S3: Plato's Stepchildren

Point of interest - this episode was banned in the UK for many years. Nothing to do with the inter-racial kiss; we'd had them on UK TV years before this episode was made and nobody batted an eyelid. It was because the BBC apparently believed the episode encouraged sadism, or some such nonsense. Along with 'The Empath' it was left out of the constant reruns we got during the seventies and eighties. There was a third episode which was originally banned but did get shown the third or fourth time round; I forget which one. But viewers in the UK didn't get to see these two until the early nineties, if memory serves.

Re: TOS S2: Amok Time

What spoils the end of this episode for me is that when Spock realises that Kirk is still alive, he gets a look of pure joy on his face. And just as he does, Shatner steps between him and the camera, so we don't see it properly!

"It ain't Shakespeare"

Which is another way of saying it's supposed to suck?

Re: Star Trek (2009)

Perhaps it's nothing, but I think the new bridge is one deck too low, and therefore occupying a much larger space than it did in previous incarnations of our beloved ship. If this is true, it dramatically shrinks the rest of the ship. Remember where the bridge was at the beginning of the cage. Spock docked behind the bridge in ST:tmp, and that was one deck higher. If you see where J.J. placed the window, the size of the ship compared to crew becomes problematic.
