Re: ENT S3: Similitude

The only thing I had a problem with in this episode was who aboard Enterprise is the ultra-fast baby/kid outfitter? (I'll explain the feed bottle away as something Phlox uses in his zoo.)
I couldn't not think of Tuvix, which I liked a lot, and I do like Enterprise, which I find vastly superior to anything else since TOS, one big reason being the lack of wallpaper characters like Troi, Chakotay, or God forbid, Worf.
And I totally condone John G's outburst about not expecting impeccable Trek behaviour from characters who don't have at least 100 years of Trek hindsight to guide them.

Re: ENT S2: Cogenitor

Mark me down as being in the "This is outright the best story in the whole ST franchise" camp.

A fantastic episode on every level. It put me through every emotion I knew and more.

How anybody can prefer TNG and especially Space Mall 9 to ENT will forever remain a mystery to me.

Re: DS9 S6: Sacrifice of Angels

I'm watching DS9 for the first time. Or at least I was watching it, but this is as far as I go. I just can't see how they are going to rescue this series now. First Children of Time, then a laborious 7-episode arc full of false promises and ending in a DEM. Oh dear.

Re: VOY S2: Tuvix

I'm a bit flabbergasted at people's conviction that the crew hated Tuvix. The scene near the end where the crew are unable to even look at Tuvix because of their discomfort or even shame, not their "hate" as suggested, surely has to be one of the most powerful in Star Trek. The very deliberate flatness of everybody's
behaviour following Tuvix's initial reaction to the assumption that the reversal was a no-brainer, "But Captain, I don't want to die", proved for me that here was a series prepared to swerve melodrama and shock the audience with the hard, unembellished truth. Contrary to the person who saw this as the death of VOY, I saw this as the moment the series grew a pair.

Re: DS9 S5: Children of Time

This episode stretched my willing suspension of disbelief to snapping point because of all the logic holes.
Moreover, I find that the similar moral dilemma in Voy:Tuvix absolutely wipes the floor with this one, both in its shunning of melodrama and in the near-perfection of the way it is acted.
I've been fast tracking the Star Treks that followed TOS as I wasn't able to watch them first time round, using various reviews as my skip guide. I took a time out to revisit some I'd skipped due to bad reviews. There were quite a few surprises and a good number of gems, any one of which I'd have traded for this one. (I've quit relying on reviews and letting the first 15 minutes be my skip/watch switch).
