Re: TNG S2: The Child

I wish I could make a comment on Dr. Pulaski, but I can't remember even the slightest detail about her.

Re: DS9 S6: Waltz

Spot-on review. One of the best-concieved episodes, with some solid writing, the only outstanding flaw being a tendency toward the bombastic, especially in Sisko's dialog at the beginning and ending of the show. Otherwise, this is my choice for Trek's best attempt at the psychological thriller.

I think anyone who has seen nuBSG could guess that Ron Moore penned this outing. It's interesting to note the similarities between Dukat and Gaius Baltar. Both are egomaniacs who have sold out their respective peoples. Both feel a great deal of regret, and try rationalizing their actions by communicating in their heads with important people from their past.

Re: BSG S3: Occupation/Precipice

There's some parallels to be drawn here with A Time to Stand/Rocks and Shoals. Both were excellent debuts to the season, and subsequent episodes felt lackluster in comparison.

Re: DS9 S5: Trials and Tribble-ations

I don't see how you gave this 3 and a half, Jammer. It does exactly what it sets out to do, as you stated in your review. It gets absurd at times, but so did "In the Cards".

Re: DS9 S3: Past Tense, Part II

DS9 Companion states that this was originally written as a one-parter, and it shows. It seemed as though at least half the hostage scenes were filler.

Re: DS9 S1: Duet

It's a shame that many ignore the early seasons outside of four episodes: "Emissary", "Duet", "Crossover", and "The Jem'Hadar". Going back and watching the older episodes, one percieves that the series was originally intended to be more toned-down than the often-bombastic Next Generation. Some amazing episodes like "Progress", "Cardassians", "The Collaborator" and especially "Nessacery Evil" recieve very little recognition. I don't want to sound like I don't appreciate the later seasons - far from it- but there is a subtleness to some of these episodes that is missed once the dominion reared its head, and especially after "The Way of the Warrior".
