Re: ORV S1: Pria

Whoa! Trek is back (by any other name). The Orville gets beard with Frakes.

That ending. It was drastic. Not in the strained, juvenile, dark'n'gritty Discovery manner, but really drastic.

Don't fuck up with captain Mercer!

And Enterprise and Into Darkness didin't jumped the shark in the past?

Re: DSC S1: The Vulcan Hello / Battle at the Binary Stars

Eh, Star Trek for kids. That's what Discovery is. We now have our own Clone Wars series. Or GotG (not GoT).

But visuals are outstanding.

Re: DS9 S6: Honor Among Thieves

Not the most watertight plot - I can't help feeling that the Syndicate assisting the Dominion is like turkeys voting for Christmas - but largely redeemed by some of the exchanges between O'Brien and Bilby. And that bar they frequented was awful quiet, wasn't it?

Re: DS9 S6: Waltz

My heart usually sinks at the prospect of yet another 'firelit cave' episode - I don't know if the recordings used by CBS are deteriorating, but I find them literally very dark at the best of times - but this was fantastic.

The only misfire was Bashir more-or-less openly stating that the life of one Sisko is worth more than that of 30,000 grunts. It seemed hugely out of character. I'm not sure that the B story was required; the episode would have worked equally well as a two-hander (with Dukat's imaginary supporting cast).

Re: TNG S7: Thine Own Self

The Renaissance Faire vibe of the planet killed the A story for me.

The B story was killed because, as Jammer puts it, 'in every Trek episode I've ever seen, old or new, a captain has never ordered a subordinate to certain death". In a 'real life' situation Geordi would have been down that conduit the second the solution was established, and Troi's insulting and superfluous "that's an order" line would have had been delivered to empty space.

What's the standard notice period in a Starfleet chief medical officer's contract?

Re: TNG S7: Parallels

Unless I missed a 'jump', Worf's unfamiliarity with his weapons control panel led to the Enterprise taking significant damage from the Cardies, and to Geordi's death. Despite these events, Troi chose to visit Worf's quarters for sexy time, and then everyone stood around Geordi's corpse without a hint of sadness, or eulogy, or even acknowledgement? Seemed strange, unless of course it was a reality in which everyone was glad to see the back of him...

Re: TNG S6: Second Chances

"It pulses unendingly all through the night..."

*snigger*

This one is awful. Tom effortlessly adjusts to moving from eight years of solitude to life on the Enterprise, which would be hugely traumatic even without a doppelgänger. Conversely Will, who merely has to come to terms with the arrival of Tom, is an absolute arsehole to 'himself' even before the Troi triangle is established.

So basically the Riker who's been sat alone for eight years has in that time developed better 'soft skills' than the Riker who's risen to the rank of Starfleet Commander.

Re: TNG S6: Lessons

@Jack - Yes, it was difficult to believe that Daren appeared to think everyone else on the ship would be tucked up in bed at 0400.

The highlight of the episode was Picard's excitement at seeing Daren's chunky roll-up keyboard. If someone replaced his ready room console with an iPad Pro his head would explode.

Re: TNG S6: Birthright, Part II

*long time listener, first time caller*

I think the 'penal colony' looks like a lovely little society which will only get lovelier with the passing of time and the production of more little Klingulans and Romgons. Playing hoops in the cabbage patch beats the hell out of interminable bloodwine benders and head-butting competitions. Much nicer architecture than Q'onoS, too.

Worf displays an unusual degree of ass-hattery even for him in instantly deciding that this is all unacceptable and dishonourable.

Tokath: Well, Worf, you've had quite an effect on the young people.
Worf: I have done nothing more than show them who they are.
Tokath: No. You have shown them what you want them to be.

I'm on Team Tokath, and I'd have had Worf shot the second he started his seditious shenanigans.
