Re: ENT S2: The Communicator

Apropos of the reviewer's quite correctly saying that the transporter should have been mentioned: T'Pol tells Hoshi to start scanning for Archer's and Reed's bio signs, and Hoshi argues, "There are 10,000 people down there!" Yes, but only two of them are human. They might have given themselves an "out" by expositing that humans' and the planet's inhabitant's bio signs were nearly indistinguishable from each other -- but the episode went out of its way to show that human physiology was very different from the aliens' physiology.

Re: ENT S1: Vox Sola

I wonder why they didn't consider beaming the crew members out of the cotton candy. Of course, it wouldn't have worked, because that would have been the end of the episode, but they could have at least mentioned it, with Phlox saying something like, "The transporter can't tell the difference between the crew members and the cotton candy," i.e., "Their neural patterns and the creature's are far too joined to risk using the transporter."

"Darmok never had hostile intentions towards Picard"

That's an excellent point; however, Darmok was the guy in the legend that Paul Winfield's character was trying to tell Picard. Winfield's character was Dathon.

Re: ENT S2: The Catwalk

Archer tells the crewman with the crossword puzzle that the first Vulcan ambassador to Earth was named Solkar. In ST:III, T'Lar calls Sarek "child of Skon, child of Solkar." "Solkar" might be the Vulcan equivalent of "Smith," but I believe we were expected to think that the first Vulcan ambassador to Earth was Sarek's grandfather.

Re: ORV S1: Pria

By destroying the wormhole in the twenty-fifth century, the Orville caused it to not exist in the twenty-ninth century, meaning Pria could not have used it to travel back in time. I think it also meant that the crews that Pria "saved" (by taking their ships and depositing them in the future) died anyway.

Re: VOY S4: Waking Moments

Harry didn't scream because he was kissing Seven; he screamed because he saw the alien. Though you'd think that space explorers in the twenty-fourth century would innately accept that there are other species that look different from ours and not freak out upon seeing one of them.

Re: VOY S3: Coda

I think in this episode Garrett Wang showed just how poor an actor he is. During his eulogy for Janeway, he's supposed to become emotional and unable to continue, but there was no indication of that in his performance, or any indication that he actually felt anything for Janeway.

The crewman who sounded the bosun's whistle was in Starfleet headquarters with Barclay and Admiral Paris in the final episode when they became aware of the Borg "transwarp aperture."

Re: VOY S2: Maneuvers

After the Kazon steal the transporter thing and beam off the ship, they somehow configure the transporters to longer work. So the V'ger crew can't beam the thing back. Leaving aside the issue of how the Kazon, who were pretty much ignorant of transporter technology, could accomplish this, why didn't the crew use the transporter in a shuttlecraft?

"And I didn't buy the romance as presented, expect for Janeways' torn expression as she kisses a man who isn't Mark and of course 'delete the wife' made me laugh!"

Here's an idea: If after six years of Delta Quadrant chastity Janeway decides she's going to boink a hologram, why not create a holographic Mark?

Re: VOY S6: Riddles

I hated this episode. Why? Because Neelix -- hands-down, the most annoying character in any incarnation of Star Trek -- figured prominently in it.

One gets the sense that had Damaged Tuvok not decided to become a pastry chef, the Voyager crew would never have learned the Ba'Neth cloaking frequency. If it was something that could be represented graphically, why didn't they just give Tuvok a pencil (or the twenty-fouth-century equivalent) and a pad of paper?

Re: VOY S6: Ashes to Ashes

I don't consider the introduction of a character we've never before seen or heard of a break in continuity. There are like 150 beings (people, not all of them human) on that ship. Now, if the writers had said that a character whom we did hear about and see never existed, that would be a break in continuity.

"Actually, I was impressed by Jeri Ryan's physicality. She looked fierce."

I was interested to know to what degree, if any, Jeri Ryan did her own stunts. I was surprised that the Memory Alpha article on this episode said nothing about that.

Re: VOY S7: Shattered

@Loren

"Even in First Contact [the Borg's] own interference didn't end up working out."

Yes, it did. When the Enterprise is in the temporal wake, we see Earth's familiar land masses Borgified, and Data says the lifesigns on the planet are "9 billion -- all Borg." The Enterprise then emerged from the temporal wake at a point *before* the Borg succeeded in their plan, and this timeline "overwrote" the one in which the Borg had succeeded.

@Jammer

"I'd also like to know why people who don't move through the timelines disappear when they cross from one area of the ship to another. If they're not moving through time like Chakotay, then where are they going?"

They're not going anywhere. The time transition is being depicted from Chakotay's point of view, so when the two security guards "disappeared" in the turbolift, Chakotay moved into a new time fragment and the security guards remained behind in the time fragment they were already in.
