Re: VOY S2: Lifesigns

She had the hots for the Doctor so she decides to start calling him after her uncle?

One of the more freaky-deaky moments in Trek.

Re: ENT S2: Cogenitor

Of all the unconscionable acts Enterprise commits wherever it goes - from warmongering to genocide - the one at which Archer draws a line in the sand is helping one oppressed, emotionally abused individual with their self-esteem.

The production company should have provided some supervisors to ensure the writers stayed on their medication. There are unparalleled levels of doublethink going on in this series.

Re: ENT S1: Dear Doctor

I agree that this was an abhorrent, vile piece of misinformed garbage that should be killed with fire. I've often been disgusted with some of Trek's usage of the Prime Directive, but this was by far the most offensive morality play I've ever seen. A lot of good points have already been made (especially about The Observer Effect) so I'll just say that the Prime Directive (which basically sets limits on the 'self' and 'other' thus determining who is deserving of moral consideration) was supposedly meant to prevent Starfleet from damaging other cultures that "weren't ready" (ie. too primitive in comparison to the almighty Starfleet) for "interference" (eg. humanitarian aid) which could have unintended and unpredictable consequences. In this mind-blowing episode, the Prime Directive is ratched up another notch to simply "let them eat cake."

Re: ENT S2: The Expanse

"And Malcolm and Hoshi would disagree with the assertion that all of the characters are American. Malcolm even has a local accent!"

Also, wasn't Travis born and conceived in space, by space parents, who may or may not have been born of space itself?
