Re: ENT S2: Carbon Creek

I was looking for some extra information about this episode when I stumbled here. I watched S1 on Netflix and just started S2. I positively rate this episode as one of the best of "Enterprise". I was really amused with most of the lines -- particulary the one about the idiotic device (TV set), because I myself grew up watching "Star Trek" on a CRT TV.
This episode is about nostalgy, so forget plotholes and whatever people disliked about "Carbon Creek". Enjoy the jokes. (4*/4*)

Re: TNG S1: Justice

Seriously? People sit there watching TV calculating what it would look like if you put black actors in whiteface alien makeup to be "fair"? Or any other kind of nitpicking? You can't just sit there and enjoy a story? There's no suspension of disbelief, and therefore no drama or immersion, if you're sitting there looking for production flaws. TV must really not be fun for you people.

Re: DS9 S2: Whispers

A fun episode with the twist reversal.

complaints though:

this O'Brien was so realistic even Basher couldn't tell, so why was nobody like Keiko pining away that "that's no fake, that's my Miles!" Molly too?

And it even featured some of the best Basher/O'Brien bickering:

Basher: How's your sex life?
O'Brien: I don't *have* a sense of humor.

and yes if they suspected this, the only sensible thing would be to confine him, at least to his quarters or some such and explain it, not have him wandering loose in this station doing who knows what. after all, they had no idea what the replicant was going to do. maybe his whole body was a bomb. Miles might be annoyed but he would find it entirely reasonable.

I guess an answer to both is perhaps that maybe we weren't shown reality, we were shown replicant Miles' recollections-- they may be distorted in the normal way someone under stress would likely recall them, but they may not be very accurate at all.

Re: DS9 S7: The Siege of AR-558

This is where ST really started to tank...
The same pro-military, anti-trek issues dogging this ep as did on much of ENT.
Nog has been completely brainwashed by military dogma. And everyone is ok with it? (Except Quark to some extension)
Did he have his mind completely wiped by some wicked starfleet computer system? He doesn't even act like a ferengi anymore at all, more the opposite. The character is so changed now the ferengi makeup has become an annoyance. Parrallel to the real world as of now, Starfleet has made Nog the perfect suicidebomber/kamikazepilot/nazi soldier. But hey, in the new Trek, military brainwashing is fine!
