Re: TNG S6: Man of the People

I just got to this episode during my annual watch through of all pre JJ trek Tos-Ent. I have to say i feel judging from the episode where she lost her powers and then got a rude attitude about it. I feel this Troi is actually the real one(before the stabby bit and the ultra old bit) and the one we normally see is the fa├žade. That has always been my head canon.

Re: TOS S1: What Are Little Girls Made Of?

As noted above, this really is the 'Kirk hits a monster with a stryofoam dong' episode. It actually appears to break in half - Ruk seems to be pushing it towards Kirk so you can't see the bottom has fallen off. Kirk seducing an Android is basically Austin Powers and the fembots though that was actually trying to be cringeworthy for humor.

Re: TNG S4: The Host

Everyone is thinking way too hard about this episode. It was about the most simple issue that everyone seems to overlook in this episode. Penis size. Don't believe me? ok think about this. Odan must have had THE BIG ONE. So he dies right and the host swap out happens. Then oh look Riker is the new host. Well guess what? Bev is his doctor so guess what she knows? That's right his peepee size. And then at the end of the episode that lady doesn't have one at all. Bet that makes you think huh.

Re: ORV S2: The Road Not Taken

Safe episode just in case its not renewed. Acting was pretty terrible but it was fun enough and got its point across. Very good season overall.
Was anyone else waiting for Guinan to tell Alara she was dead in the other timeline so she'd get blown up with Shooter McGavin and save everyone?

Re: DSC S2: Perpetual Infinity

I want to like this season but there is just no joy in it. This episode highlights it for me. So many revolving plots and miles of technobabble. I feel like I know almost nothing about the characters and we are almost through season 2.

Burnham's mom and the sphere archive plots feel thrown against the wall at time. Can't delete the sphere? Shoot that crap into a volcano and maybe we worry about it in season 5. Spock and Pike are wasted again.

The acting is really good as usual but I could care less about Leland. Agree with Karl about two stars. This is starting to feel like the rabbit hole Enterprise fell into with the Xindi.

Re: VOY S5: Once Upon a Time

The casting director chose well with scarlet pommers, her and ethan phillips had great chemistry. In fact all of her interactions with the crew were solid. I know a lot of people rag on Neelix, but I think whenever we get to see him in pain we see his true character. It helps me to understand and appreciate that annoying happy all the time neelix is a front for somebody who is actually living with immense sadness. This front is how he gets through his day. I have to admit the scene in the ready room between Janeway and neelix got me a bit teary and Ethan Phillips did a great job of portraying Neelix cracking at the seams with anxiety. Call me a big softy, but I really liked this one, it explored the family aspect of voyager really well and didn;t get overly bogged down in technobabble and bridge explosions

Re: VOY S7: Homestead

Explaining why there were a group of Talaxians 40,000 years from their homeworld would have been as simple as having Dexa or another character say that they used the vaadwaur subspace corridors. It was established in dragon's teeth that they went all the way to talax. I don't get why the writers didn't do that.

Re: VOY S6: Dragon's Teeth

This episode was originally supposed to be a 'movie length' episode ala 'Dark Frontier' and 'Flesh and Blood'. I can't remember why but it was changed to a standard episode close the last minute, which most likely resulted in the rushed final act. Personally, I wish they had made it a movie length episode so we could have gotten a deeper insight into the vaadwaur. It would have been much better if they had been grey hats instead of the black hats they became. I'd like to have seen them be portrayed as an analogy for the British Empire, civilised conquerors who controlled most of the delta quadrant, until their vassal states rebelled. Now, they were acting more so out of desperation and the need to survive than any genuine malice towards voyager. It's also a shame we never saw the vaadwaur again. The subspace corridors could have been a good plot device, allowing the vaadwaur to be recurring villains and a holy grail for voyager in the form of a lost tunnel that could lead back to the alpha quadrant or something. Oh well, it wasn't meant to be. I have to admit i did like the final battle. Voyager fighting a running battle through the ruined city was pretty cool.

Re: VOY S6: Tsunkatse

I thought this episode was good fun. There's a lot of humourous interactions between the crew the stand out being the following between paris and seven:

[Paris observes Seven preparing several containers for an away mission]
Tom Paris: How long are you planning on being gone?
Seven of Nine: Approximately 48 hours.
Tom Paris: [laughs] Just like B'Elanna.
Seven of Nine: Clarify.
Tom Paris: Well, she overpacks, too.
Seven of Nine: I haven't overpacked. I simply wish to be prepared for any contingency.
Tom Paris: [holds up a piece of equipment] And... what contingency is this for?
Seven of Nine: That's an isomodulator, enhanced to correct hull ablation in the event we encounter a meteoroid stream.
Tom Paris: Couldn't you just replicate an isomodulator?
Seven of Nine: I prefer this one.
Tom Paris: Oh, I get it. You like to have your own things with you. B'Elanna's the same way. You know, she'd never admit it, but she still takes her stuffed animal with her whenever she's gonna be away for more than a day. 'Toby the Targ'.
Seven of Nine: Can Toby the Targ correct hull ablation? Your comparison is flawed.

Re: TNG S4: Galaxy's Child

Nissa - you are completely over-inflating the issue.

Geordi was by no means innocent in the situation, since he obviously used some details from that program and assumably other research to know a bit more about Brahms (in his defense, what person doesn't try to learn more about someone they're interested in...). But the important thing is that he never created a holographic image of her to try and fantasize with. It was intended as a diagnostic simulation to try and figure out a solution to the issue at hand.

In the Booby Trap episode it was a degree of give and take with the computer that lead to there being a 3d image of her at all in the program. He never initially asked for it (the computer made the decision on it's own to insert a 3d image of her into the scene to assist with identification of certain items), but when confronted with an image of her that wasn't reacting like a human, he decided to instruct the computer to make the program act more like the real thing, so he could bounce ideas off it more effectively.

All the sexual innuendo was invented by the holodeck computer system, which in the process of making the invention seem believable was no doubt detecting that Geordi was somewhat attracted to the image (this does seem to happen on the holodeck occasionally...). Using this information it connected the dots, and made the holo version say those lines, and act the way it did. The holodeck doesn't know that what it's doing is creepy, it's just creating a mostly realistic simulation based on the information at hand, and parameters that had been defined.

I highly doubt that any reasonable person would look at this situation and assume Geordi was without fault, but they should also be able to see that the situation wasn't as creepy as you are insinuating.

His reaction to her outrage was wrong, but no-one said he was perfect. I also admit that the sudden turn-around by the episodes end in her reaction to him was a bit jarring, but from the way they are talking (with him acknowledging that he got a bit too attached to the holo-Brahms) it seems that we are seeing the end of a conversation, where the proper framing of why there was a holo version of her was explained and presumably understood.

The lack of a scene showing this sort of conversation, with Geordi apologising for the way he acted etc is definitely an oversight, but we must remember that TV schedules often cause pages of dialog to be left on the floor, especially in a scifi series, where the studio is often pushing for less talking and more action etc.

Re: DS9 S6: Statistical Probabilities


1) When that third season episode was written, nobody had plans to make Bashir into an genetically enhanced superhuman two years later.

2) When that fifth season episode was written, the writers did not know, that someone would write an episode, explaining the klingon looks in the Classic Series that way eight years later.

Re: ENT S3: Doctor's Orders

Completely obvious from the start.

Gee, T'Pal was a hallucination? What a shock. Dumb ending.

I think the complete obviousness of T'Pal's illusion - how could we really think otherwise? - ruined the episode. Even if you were completely dense, the drawn-out engineering scene where she was a helpless fawn made it plain, which rendered the ended "no shit, Sherlock".
