Re: DS9 S1: Babel

Rewatching this episode, I'm struck at two things about Sisko. He is O'Brien's antagonist, right up to the last piece of dialogue in the episode, and often is O'Brien's antagonist throughout the series. Also, when he authorized Kira to talk to the Bajoran scientist even though she said would not set foot on Bajor, it was played as if he realized what she planned to do. It was an early instance of him being desperate enough to cross an ethical line because everyone on the station, including his son, was in jeopardy. Good writing.

Re: TNG S4: The Loss

I never understood why so many people dislike Troi, she can be too much of a nosy and overvearing counselor, but I thought she was fine, mostly innofensive due to her rather passive and flat nature, that's why I enjoy this episode, it gives her a bit more depth, letting us see more into her character and her arrogance over humans because of her empathic abilities. I feel like people are biased towards this episode because they simply don't like Troi as a character, which is fine, but a tad unfair. This episode ain't exactly all that great, a tad uneventful perhaps, but to me it's a solid 7/10

Re: DS9 S6: Far Beyond the Stars

I just saw this episode and was blown away by how relevant it is to these modern times. Perhaps my favorite episode of Trek for me so far (TNG, now DS9). Wow.

Re: TNG S4: Final Mission

I'm pretty sure they needed the B plot about the space trash because it without it the crew of the enterprise would quickly find Picard and Wesley, I mean, without it, the enterprise crew would look pretty incompetent if they can't find the missing crew on the planet's surface, uness you wanna pull a "electromagnetic disturbance" out of your ass as to why they couldn't user their scanners to find them right away.

Re: TOS S1: Operation--Annihilate!

A good episode. Better than I remember (this is one of the few that only saw once way, way back in the day).

The yeoman du jour was kind of intriguing.

Kirk got over the loss of his brother and sister-in-law a little too quickly. Such was episodic TV in those days.

Re: TOS S1: The City on the Edge of Forever

My favorite "Original" Trek and very, very high up on my all-time, all Treks list.

I'll always think of Edith Keeler as Kirk's greatest love. Here's an aspect I haven't seen any comments on:

Joan Collins and William Shatner were two over-the-top, hammy actors. But they both toned it way down for this, and it was pure magic.

I usually roll my eyes at Kirk's "loves," but I totally buy in to why Kirk fell so hard, so fast for Edith Keeler, thanks for Joan Collins' on-spot performance.

My favorite part in an episode that was excellent from first to last minute was indeed that last minute back on the Guardian planet. I'm so glad they didn't do the usual yucking it up on the bridge at Spock's expense.

The ending leaves you with such as strong sense of Kirk's loss.

Re: DS9 S7: What You Leave Behind

@ wolfstar

"Haplo, Yanks - I've seen the DS9 documentary. I gave it an 8/10 (or a high 3 on the Jammer scale). It was great hearing all the actors talk so intelligently about their roles. For me the season eight part was the weakest element - admittedly they only had one day to come up with it, but I didn't think the writers' ideas worked and a lot of the groundwork and character choices seemed to have been borrowed from the relaunch novels. A shame there was no discussion of The Visitor or In The Pale Moonlight at all in the two-hour runtime, and no discussion of the geopolitical side of the show either (the parallels between Bajor/Cardassia and eastern European countries recovering from Soviet domination in the 1990s, Changeling paranoia in relation to terrorism fears in the U.S., etc.). I did really enjoy it, but it was a little too much of a love-in and nostalgia fest - which is entirely warranted, as the show is awesome, but I'd have preferred a slightly more sober and analytical look at what made DS9 so resonant and timeless, rather than lots of scenes of the cast singing and fooling around."

I enjoyed it. There was about 70 folks in the theater I saw it in last night. We all applauded when it was over. I gave some $$$$ to the effort so Steven was speaking to me at the end :-)

I was a little disappointed that it seemed they were all whining about not getting the credit it/they deserved? I was surprised that Armin Shimmerman was so taken aback with some criticism... it really bothered him? .... DS9 made him... we wouldn't know who he was if not for DS9.

We got to see Terry talk about the contract issues... sort of, she never really exposed the whole thing but you could see it really bothered her on how she was treated.

The stuff we got in HD was pretty darn amazing looking. I also liked the cartoon sketch stuff...

I didn't mind the season 8 stuff. All good and would have been interesting for sure. It was funny as hell when Nog (Aron) went off :-)

I don't like the idea of Garak being gay and needed to be in a relationship with Bashir.

It also really didn't feel like this was a reunion... they are together all the time at the conventions...

Some laugh-out-loud funny moments.

Behr needs to grow up and lose the purple goat.

Of course they go to 'Past Tense' and 'Far Beyond the Stars' as the key episodes that make DS9 great. .... not so sure about that, I might have chosen others... many others...

I think they got everyone that was alive to participate... quite the gaggle of niners :-)

HAHA... they hit on the DS9 ending controversy... brought up pretty much every point I made here... I feel vindicated :-)

I stayed until the end so the run time for me was closer to 2 1/2 hours.

I'll purchase it on DVD and add it to my collection.

Re: TOS S2: The Doomsday Machine

Saw this as an 9 year old when it came out and it had me on the edge of the bed the whole time. The “machine” was scary as heck! This episode simply outclasses everything else in the original show - this deserved a movie treatment. No surprise it was written by Spinrad. Darn this was scary to a nine year old and I still think it is as I said just better than the others episodes - far better.

Re: TOS S1: A Taste of Armageddon

Has anyone every noticed that McCoy is always by the captain's seat, needlessly questioning every decision of whoever is in command?

Scotty, who had the situation well in hand, should have sent him down to Sickbay with orders to stay there.

Re: ORV S1: Mad Idolatry

Can science tell us whether the universe it studies in such detail is real? And if not, what relevance does what it has to say about its alleged lack of meaning have to a potentially unreal universe?

Re: DS9 S4: Broken Link

""They're everywhere" Season 3 finale was disappointingly weak. We're starting Season 5 and have progressed very little. "

I think adding Worf had something to do with it.

They did a lot of "Now that we have Worf, look at these stories we can do" episodes in Season 4, something happens again in Season 7 with Ezri.

We also had several other detours this season as well, with many episodes handed over to culture check-ins with Bajorans, Ferengi, Maquis, Trill, Cardassians, holodecking, and even the Jem Hadar.

Re: DSC S2: Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2


"If I'm not mistaken, part of the Federation is actually located in the Beta Quadrant. Whatever the case, it appears the Federation has long range sensors and/or listening posts that detected the initial seven red bursts which were spread out among 30,000 light years (including one burst in the beta quadrant) according to "Brother"."

You are most correct.

The Klingon and Romulan Empires are in the Beta Q. (probably Andoria too?_

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi


"I posted my youtube like as a snarky reply to Yanks, but I suggest seriously watching it. I loathe Disney and am very pessimistic about the mega-blockbuster endless sequel industry that Star Wars is now only one example of in our media, but I think that TLJ somehow emerged as one of the most interesting, engaging and complex films of the entire franchise."

I watched it. It's obviously a fanboy take and I'm fine with that. Let me ask you this, is there one point brought up in my video that is incorrect?

Seriously, this movie lost me when Mary Poppins arrived.

I personally think the next and last chapter will be much better. JJ can tell a story on screen and aside from some visuals (shaky cam and lens flares) I'm sure he will wrap things up concerning the characters, unlike TLJ.

Re: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

Re: Alameda...

In the 23rd century, San Francisco is still there.

The Golden Gate bridge is still there.

Something is where Alameda is now, and there isn't much reason it wouldn't be called Alameda anymore.

Uhura and Chekov spent four years attending school in San Francisco.

I 'd find it strange if someone attended four years of college in Chicago and never heard of, say, Cicero or Rosemont.
