Stumbled across Samaritan Snare and realized we did not have a BWW thread as of late.

>We need things that make us go

Always loved the Pakleds, first for the obvious nod in the name (pack-led) and that they are basically space autists

Anyway, bump whenever you are watching star trek or see it on somewhere.

Pulling through ENT at the moment. It's my goal to watch all Trek in order of star date.
Going to be straight up through TOS but it will get interesting once I get half way through TNG when I gotta mix it up with the other spin offs.

Any way. Why does Archer lumber around like a retard when ever he speaks.
Slow, stiff, wide paced, lumbering steps. The more I go on the more I think star fleet didn't catch a mental dissability before giving him the ship. Archer is pretty stupid not counting for the pre prime directive and space faring exp seen in TNG.
TOS had some learning points too, see balance of power.

still on my star date in order run. Trudging through the xindi season. Seriously mid stride it goes "ok taking too long" last time on ENT they solved some shit and suddenly now the weapon. But then not a handful of eps later things just start taking forever again.

I guess they are still trying to make a point of how slow the first enterprise was but really the 3-4 eps of, WE GOIN TO RISA was too much. Ignoring the pre established canon that risa is only a vacation planet because of federation weather contol.

ENT season three has E2, which recycles one of my favorites star trek tropes.

>Risa

Maybe Risa 1 was destroyed during the Romulan/Earth war and the Risa from TNG is a historical recreation, akin to Paris/France on earth. (which, in my head canon, is a recreation of a city lost to WWIII, repopulated by british french).

I'm pretty sure it perfectly fits the narrative if Risa had seasonal tourism before they got weather control and seismic regulators. It would even make sense for them to invest into these technologies when already an established tourist world, not the other way around.
It can also mean that before the TNG area Risa had somewhat of another image, more adventurous, and that is what made it become popular later on because they could maintain that brand to make it seem like despite all high tech comfort it's still an adventure.

Just started season 13 of Gunsmoke. This is the second season in color, and the third or fourth season of hour long episodes. They seem to have cut out Thad, but he was kind of a Mayweather character anyway, more of a young-faced cardboard standee than a person.

This season first aired in 1967/68, the same year as a certain other show premiered.

Up this this point, a lot of Star Trek actors have been in Gunsmoke episodes. Shat, Nimoy, Kelley, Doohan, Muldaur, Ansara... and more I am sure I have not noticed.

nb because not really star trek.

Got passed the major arcs of ENT. About time. I really hate the modern all encompasing story arc tv shows get these days. Part of what made trek, trek, is that the issue of the ep was resolved, or if not it comes up much later when needed in another story. The one off adventures made it seem more like there was a bunch going on you don't see.

Ent seems like every one on the ship just lives at their post. One day to the next it's all go go go with the same problem you saw last ep.

So it's the quantum transporter ep. Putting star fleet in moth balls. Ignorant fool, need ships to go places to build pads/ defend owned worlds. But what I find most funny. Usually in trek the new face on the ship interacts with the crew and some thing he says or does at some point gets the dramatic music que and a worried look from one of the officers. But the guy is all, nah that's cool tucker, I'll install it my self. que dramatic music and worried look. Oh shit this guy is trouble.

DS9 was pretty cutting edge for trying the whole multi-episode arc thing in the mid 90s.

It's almost certainly a product of DS9 being produced in syndication as opposed to being tied down to a network. Cause Voyager was a premise even MORE ripe for being a continual story than DS9 was, but they went in the exact opposite direction with it.

TNG had plenty of "arcs" too, but they were usually kept to one or two episodes per season. Though they had some shorter loose arcs in TNG as well, with the whole Klingon succession crisis arc that stretched over a few seasons and was impacted by several outside episodes as well.

Agreed. I did like DS9 even though they had that heavy long arc in the end. And TNG does it well. Some elements are saved and brought up later when appropriate for character deelopment, even the klingon civil war is just Worfs character development. Take quarks character development arcs, the entire Farengi Alliance had a full of economic reform because a Farengi was a main character. Though any arc is two episodes at most during the mid season or season end/beginning.

It is really odd that voyager wasn't more like the later seasons of DS9. It would have made more sense given the situation, every moment shoudl have been tense and always dealing with the unknown and surviving. But the first season was all like, "oh dear, we can't use replicators all the time because to duterium in delta quad." but it was never really an issue when compared to another show with a similar survival element, new BSG. Forget the killer robots chasing you and just think about all the shit they had to do with their ships and people to ensure they could live as a flotilla. People died every day to basic shit like malnutrition to more intense things like machine malfunction or pilot error. The point being every mistake counted and you jst don't feel that in VOY at all.

There was a bunch of executive meddling where they wanted VOY to avoid being too dark, specifically no conflict between crew members. I suspect a BSG-style depressing escape would also not match with that. True they could have gone for a lighter version of it (need to search for food and fuel without people starving, for example) but the wildly inconsistent writing quality probably didn't help there.

My take is that Voyager almost became a self-aware science fiction critique using itself as a vehicle as pastiche... At least that is where I think it really shined.

Two pieces of evidence:

  1. Pic related.

2. In the episode "Shattered", (wherein the ship is split into different times/timeliens) there is this great bit of dialog:

>JANEWAY: She's got a pulse.
>CHAKOTAY: I'm detecting an active neurogenic field. This could be the day the telepathic pitcher plant put us all into comas. Or it might be the time aliens invaded our dreams.
>JANEWAY: We've got to get them help.
>CHAKOTAY: Don't worry, we managed to get out of both situations.

Not really. Wiseguy had already done it 6 years earlier. And that was a network show. It's almost certainly a product of DS9 being produced in syndication as opposed to being tied down to a network.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiseguy
>As opposed to a typical crime drama series, Wiseguy was structured more like a typical soap opera would be; for example, a cycle of episodes would focus on a particular story and the story would conclude in the final episode of the cycle, which gave rise to the term story arc. Since each cycle dealt with a particular story, the episodes had a set of characters written just for those episodes. Actors such as Kevin Spacey, Ray Sharkey, and Tim Curry were among the actors who played central characters in story arcs over the course of the series.

I feel like the Borg are just a plot element in Descent and aside from a couple of scenes with Hugh, it's not even a Borg story at all. And in fact it directly contradicts plot points made in First Contact, namely that the Federation doesn't trust Picard to fight the Borg when in Descent the Enterprise leads the taskforce.

The relative misogyny compared to the other series and other similarities to the time it was made make it seem like the Federation went through some kind of pop culture retro fad, much like an 80's themed party.

Why were the caretakers trying to save this retarded panda of a race again? The entire premise of Voyager was that homeboy was trying to save these fools because he felt guilty for wrecking their shit, but it looks like their extinction was always inevitable.

It's been awhile since I watched VOY S1 but wasn't the caretaker responsible for wrecking their environment and forcing them underground which deprived them of their psychic abilities?

I'm watching DS9 Season 4 Ep 17, and it sucks. This is probably the worst episode I have seen on DS9 so far. Worf is put on trial for murdering innocents, and the most ridiculous case is made against him. The filming style was very unusual and I enjoyed that, but holy shit the court case is just unbelievable bullshit.

Still doing that StarDate run. Finally getting ot the interesting part and just finished Chain of command so now DS9 starts running in between for a season and a half.

With all the cross over characters it will be more interesting to see movement of these characters between the shows. I noticed also Obrien just vanished from the enterprise in season 6. I imagine they were already filming it at the time.

I like the ambiguity, even with the stardate order in consideration. Usually that sort of thing is a cop out but in the end it's like a reverse christmas carol and the fact it might be Q or might just be Picard resolving his own issues just makes it more interesting.

I mean it is very out of character for him, but you just never know. Especially in the light of him just being unappreciated by Vash and Sisko.

What is certain was they had John Delancey around so they thought "lets do another while he's here".

I just started watching TOS S2E12: The Deadly Years

I have no idea how people can seriously claim that Captain Kirk is the best captain after this episode. Kirk just totally embarrasses the hell out of himself by being obviously unfit for command but he tries to pretend like nothing is wrong and has to be taken to some sort of special hearing where he's relieved of command. Then he goes on to blame Spock for everything in a little temper tantrum of denial.

I just lost all respect for him in this episode. I don't care how this is resolved, the way he acted was just pathetic.

Jesus, the next episode "Obsession" makes him look even worse. I seriously can't believe they let this guy command a starship. He lets untold numbers die on a nearby planet because he delays delivering badly needed vaccines to hunt down some random space creature that killed his old captain. He loses many men in the hunt. It was a pure revenge motive. Plus he's unnecessarily harsh on some kid that reminds him of himself. Were people really this emotional in the 60's?

Meanwhile TNG has Picard giving rousing, moving speeches, Quark is breaking down the economics of reality and showing us that free trade can prevent war, and Chipotle is Ah Cootchie Maya-ing us on the distance he is from the bones of our ancestors...

And all Hoshi can do is "uh.. captin I dunno how to werk this universal translator thingie, I think he said something about stinky boots."

And then some people will be like, oh well Phlox is the philosopher

Well his philosophy is to put an alien leech on your dick. "OPTIMISM CAPTAIN"

There not being a philosopher character is just a symptom of ENT's crappy writing. This is a show that thought the best part of Seven of Nine was her suit, and then put it on the most un-Vulcan looking actress they could find.

And Hoshi might be written as a scaredy cat incompetent, but Archer is written as a raging incompetent who often makes the bad choice just for the hell of it. Phlox basically commits genocide, because "muh natural course of things". And his natural remedies are supposed to be a quaint reflection of earlier crews using stuff available in their environment, as seen through low-tech goggles, but instead it becomes a joke, with him having a leech or bat for EVERYTHING.

ENT just didn't really have any strong characters, let alone characters who fill specific roles like "philosopher". When you ask me to describe the character of other Star Trek characters, I can give a reasonable answer. With ENT, I'm going to be listing their roles, superficial traits, and negative traits for the best-developed ones.

Not to open this can of bloodworms, but it always seemed to me that ENT suffered from "9/11" syndrome, where it had to basically write about and deal with 9/11.

But a philosopher character would have cautioned wise moves instead of arrogant exceptionalist space 'merika.

Also it takes balls to write good sci fi. The writers either didn't have balls, or they were locked up by Paramount or whoever the fuck owned Star Trek at that moment in time.

While your criticisms are pretty valid, I don't think you need "types" as much as a dynamic that creates the right amount of friction and conflict while feeling like it's a group that still works together. ENT could have done better at that.

Also Chipotle was less relevant than Phlox. Phlox didn't have much to say but Chipotle's job was just to be ignored by Insaneway when dispensing advice. I admit he created conflict but the fact he was never listened to breaks that second part about working together. ENT was too far the other way. They feel like a cohesive team but because they have not one but TWO so and so's on bridge (Mayweather/Hoshi).

I think whatever this Trek is, it has to have that classic formula for the first season at least..if not try to replicate it in most (but not all) seasons of the show. The nerd who doesn't quite get it. The Captain who always has the right answer. The great conversation...everyone's trying to find the philosopher but that's the thing about Trek...every character is a philosopher.

They dealt with having a terrorist on the main cast, and the morality of her terrorist attacks. They dealt with religious extremists and "ends hallow the means" attitudes. And they did it all before 9/11.

People were project that the Suliban were the Taliban, but that's just retarded. They had that OK-ish Space Arab episode, and that enormous pile of crap that was Suliban Guantanamo Bay. But they only really did 9/11 stuff with the Xindi and their attack on Earth.

And come to think of it, DS9 did that, too. And the Breen attack on Earth had a lot more oomph than the Xindi one. Because the Breen attack carried the same meaning as 9/11: We can hit you where you thought you were safe. In ENT, it just didn't carry that weight. The entire point was the we were the newest, weakest guys, and everyone who wanted to, could basically fuck us over. Plus, they went through this backwards writing process where the Xindi had to attack Earth for their trauma storylines with Trip, and they just pulled a reason out of their asses.

You don't need types, but you do need developed characters, and those characters will naturally fulfill those roles.

As for Chakoters, I'd say Seven and the Doc fulfilled the philosopher role more than he did. The character never really got a chance, which was kind of a problem with VOY. They had their clear favorites, and the rest just got the cold shoulder. And they tried to jam Janeway into everything, so the First Officer had nothing to do. Because she took over his job. One of VOY's big flaws is that the plot catered to Janeway. She's always a central character. While TNG and DS9 have episodes where the captain barely shows up, and the other characters are allowed their time in the limelight. Even when they send the Doc to the Alpha Quadrant they have to have their little Janeway/Seven moment.

You're dead on correct about Voyager, but if you watch the first 2-3 seasons, there are episodes where Chipotle clearly had a more philosophical role and knew about the mythologies and beliefs of other cultures. It almost made the fact that he was a Native-everyman whose tribe/culture wasn't nailed down for several seasons more acceptable. Almost.

The problem with Chacuntay "knowing" a lot of that sort of stuff is that he really doesn't know all that much, and generally just goes off whatever indian hunch bubbles up in his native noggin'.

The entire indian angle is halfassed. They clearly didn't know what to do with it. It's like someone said at the last minute "let's do an indian character" because they remembered TNG's injuns in space. Then they hired this Chief Firewater character to "advise" them by filling their heads with bullshit that any casual viewer today can identify, which is frankly embarrassing, and never figured they need to do more with the character.

It sucks, because on paper the Voyager cast sounds extremely interesting. Maquis intermingling, lots of varied character motivations, everything. But it just falls apart on the writing. It's like they did the exact wrong thing with half the characters they had.

There was a gap of a year where it was just DS9, after TNG had ended, but before VOY began...

Google tells me TNG ended May 23, 1994 and Voyager began January 16, 1995 so it was actually a few months shy of a year.

I agree with you though, it did seem like it was a bigger gap than that in my memory of when I was living in those times.

Everyone here is underageb& apparently.

They used Voyager to "launch a new station" called UPN or something.

TNG was on NBC or whatever, so was DS9. If you wanted to keep watching Star Trak you had to start watching a totally shit-tier cable channel.

I mean there's a difference between being in first run syndication like TNG and DS9 and on primetime television with TOS on NBC and Voyager/Enterprise on UPN. I don't think it was the best network to have had Star Trek as tbey could have benefitted more being on cable as Stargate had.

You know, I had kind of forgotten they used Voyager as the flagship for UPN.. it really wasn't a good channel. Makes me worry a bit that they're effectively doing the same thing for their Netflix knockoff. I'd also wager that once CBS all-access is launched, they won't allow Netflix to renew any of the Star Trek series, and will try and pull trekkies behind their own CBS brand paywall.

I worry about this because in a lot of ways Voyager is what killed my love of Trek.
They were lazy in the first few seasons, just expecting people to watch because it was Star Trek, a lot of elements of it seemed sloppy and poorly planned, they pussed out on having any sort of continuity between episodes, on having conflict between the Maquis and Starfleet crew, and they basically just rehashed tropes that they'd been using since the Kirk days until they finally found their footing in being ridiculous Captain Proton/Twilight Zone style shit, focusing on the Doctor, and adding Seven of Tits. It had its moments and I now appreciate more than it was on the air, but I literally could not be bothered to give a fuck about it towards the end of its run. They just made Star Trek too cheesy with too little philosophical substance. By the time ENT came along, I think I watched most of the premier and then didn't watch it again for more than 10 seconds until it had been off the air for almost a decade, because Voyager had devalued the franchise so much in my eyes.

If they do a good job with this new show, it will revitalize Star Trek, but if they do anything less, it will pretty much relegate 'Trek to the dusty pages of history like Jules Verne stories and Flash Gordon shit. I think if they fail, Star Trek will never come back again. I think it's make or break.

They also had this cool sci-fi show they'd air on the same nights as Voyager called Seven Days. It was about a government program with a time machine that could travel back only one week. So every time there was some catastrophe, they would send this guy back in time a week to stop it.

Being on a network killed Voyager's ability to make use of its cool premise. Execs cared more about having a stable week to week show than executing the show in the best way possible for what it wanted to be (a TNG/DS9 hybrid).

I do think that streaming is the 21st century version of syndication, so the new show should hopefully be able to recapture that TNG/DS9 essence.

They weren't lazy. They were burned out. The same group of writers and producers had been cranking out Trek tv shows for a decade. It wasn't until 3 or 4 seasons in and some of those people started ditching and new blood came in that things improved a bit. They were all working under Rick Berman the entire time, who liked to micromanage the creativity and hated taking risks. Garrett Wang (Harry Kim) also said in an interview that Berman never visited the sets during shooting. Like he hid in his office for seven years. All of this resulted in a show whose tone was as stiff and uncomfortable as the people making it.

Still on the star date order run. But the list I was using is all kinds of fucked up on the Voy order. Doesn't matter though as the cross overs stopped being interesting and there is no plot similarities like with the maqee/cardasian arc between DS9 and TNG. Now it's just taking the bit character every now and then and slapping them in a voy ep or two. Some times they use actors from the two series on each other. Like Eisenburg as a Kazon or the doctor as his creator interviewing Bashir.

Interesting side note. In DS9 S5:EP6 the time police mention there were 6 enterprises. Did a quick head count and at this time inthe canon the Ent E was being built. The line up shows First Contact coming up soon during this season. But at this point there was no ENT, so in effect there were only 5 enterprises. Was this a little drop before ENT came about? Season 5 puts it around 97-98 so maybe they could have been thinking about the next series.

Well, yes and no. This was a reference drop, but not to what you think. The NX-01 Enterprise was already a part of the lore of Star Trek as early as early-TNG, and was referenced as such in various technical manuals you could buy. At that point though it was a Daedalus class starship, which they obviously retconned to make ENT the show. They may have been thinking about ENT at that point, but their being 6 Enterprises by then was already a point of canon.

In the Trekverse humanity is a baby race but one of the smartest, or at least the best at getting shit done when it needs to or wants to. Starfleet engineers are the envy of the alpha, beta and gamma quadrants. Other races had warp for thousands of years but it was humanity who brought them the first warp 8 engine.

The Pakleds are cunning though. That's not an alternative interpretation or anything it's fact, the entire plot they turn up for is driven by them being actually pretty smart in their own way. Enough to get by. They're not super ambitious they just live their lives. Borg will never assimilate them and no one else will ever see them as having anything of worth to take, they'd make awful slaves, too stupid to follow complex tasks, but smart enough to deliberately fuck up simple ones. The absolute best thing another race can do is basically avoid them and leave them to their shit.

They don't have a deep philosophy though. Like everything else about them it's simple, lets not kid ourselves, but it's smarter than than it seems at a glance and it's suitable for their purposes.

Anyway my point is that the Pakled have probably been drifting through space for ages. Maybe they've seen the rise and fall of all other intelligent life a few times, but they probably didn't notice. Which is pretty smart because if anyone knew anything that'd be trouble for them.

But humans. Humans are smart in a driven adaptable way, humans are like a child prodigy. Sure he's about 6 but he can already do maths and play the piano better than almost every adult you've met. And I guess that makes Q our overly pushy parents, except instead of endless study and tuition when they feel we can do more they just sic the borg on us and force us to do that adapting and making do thing again. Probably beats 3 hours of maths a night tbh.

Bumpan, watched about half of the episode of DS9 episode 4.

This show really was woke as fuck. The episode about Quark's workers unionizing... weird to think Quark is more of a pushover than Wal-Mart. and the episode where Worf allegedly blows up them civilians, real talk in our war torn future.

Also it's great how meta Worf is in season 4. Every 2 episode he gives some rant about how much shittier DS9 is than the Enterprise D and the rest of the crew are all like "welcome to the frontier bitch", and every time it feels like DS9 is explaining to TNG about it's thematic differences, and over time Star Trek fans would get used to these different inflections. I dunno, I'm high, but this shit got layers.

It sucks because if you go back and watch the eps of VOY from before First Contact where the borg show up... they do them fine. They still feel like the late TNG borg. It's not until the Queen got ramrodded into canon that it went full retard on that front.

Whenever I see the Borg Queen I'm always coming up with little head-canons for why she is acting the way she does. Like, even though she appears to be an individual we are really just seeing the tip of an ice-berg, a single neuron of the prefontal lobe that might for a moment be able to think of itself as the whole brain. Still it definitely could've been dramatized better. I think the main reason it's upsetting is because post FC borg and pre FC borg are really different species. The most defining thing about the Borg when we first meet them are their lack of personality, they totally subvert the whole concept of Star Trek by being the exact opposite of the Fed not just ethically but in the sense that their most defining characteristic is their lack of character compared to the vibrancy of the Fed. It works on a philosophically deep level.
Post FC/VOY they are just emo cyborgs who I want to fuck.

I see the queen as an emergent property of the locutus factor. The Borg probably found it useful to localize commands with the queens after having locutus wipe up at wolf 359. In one Voy ep the queen mentions the cranial capacity of Humans. Perhaps they want Humans for a new queen species. It's not individuality that is being injected to the borg, rather the suppression is lifted in one who can direct the others.

>implying there wasn't always a queen.

Every species seems supremely different until star fleet studies them more. Or you know we could keep this going until none of us likes trek any more.

Think about it for one second. The Borg all act as if they are being controlled like an RTS. Nothing happens unless the a threat is detected or it's all business as usual. Even then the queen is not the end all leader of the collective. There were at least three observed and they died. A species was assimilated and converted into command and control nodes each leading a portion of Borg resources but still collectively working towards the same goal.

I remember reading soem where that the Borg are the end result of a sentient AI rebelling and taking control of a species in the delta quad, turning them into cyborgs and eventually becoming the drones we see in TNG. So really the queens are just ways to clear the load on the central AI or AIs that control the borg collective.

voy still had shit writing though. You just hate it cuz it's too mainstreem to hate JJ trek now.

Audiences have spent the last 20 years saturated with Trek content, especially thanks to the internet. In 1987 there was fuck-all*. It's a testament to fan's hunger for something, ANYTHING new with Trek in the title (and Roddenberry's stamp in the credits helped) was gobbled up and people kept watching week after week despite how shitty it was.


  • TOS repeats, 4 TOS movies that you either had to rent or catch on tv unless you were a nut and had shelled out $100+ dollars for your own VHS copy of ones of the movies, and the Penguin books which were all TOS stories.

I grew up in a house with 30+ vhs tapes containing almost all of TOS and the movies.

My mom had hundreds (literally) of Trek novels in her closet downstairs. I think she collected them all. She even wrote two, but both were turned down by the publisher. Just saying I was raised by a wizard-tier trekkie.

Your assessment of 1987 is correct. Anything Star Trek was welcomed and wanted.

I think we wanted to dream. What is missing from the nutrek is the dream. Despite the badness of TNG season 1, it dreams.

Just about done with V on my quest to watch all six TOS movies.

While it is obviously the worst of the six it still has a few moments/decent things.

>Bones being Bones
>Bone's father's death scene
>"I don't want my pain taken away! I need my pain!"
>"What does god need with a star ship?"
>Expanding on Vulcan canon with Vulcans that choose emotions over logic
>Cat lady with 3 tits

Yes it is a terrible mess and directed poorly but at least it tries to explore some interesting concepts like religion, reality, and man's pain.

I guess all I'm saying is people shouldn't consider it the worst Star Trek movie when Generations, Insurrection, and Nemesis exist.

Watching DS9, S5E14-15. Another great 2 parter that ramps up the war. That part where Dr. Bashir Comes around the corner wearing the old style uniform and you realize he'd been replaced for several episodes. Blam. Bashir got all the great twists in this show.

>Janeway literally has a member of her crew Executed.

Just finished watching Tuvix... Jesus christ, this is literally SF-Debris' rendition of her personified. The worst part of it is that nobody calls her on this. The crew pretty much turns into a lynch-mob, all because Tuvix had some apprehensions about being killed.

What could have saved this episode is, after Tuvok and Neelix come back, they both tell her "We remember everything about being Tuvix... What you did was fucking horrifying and we're not sure we're ever going to look at you the same way again" and this could have started a whole arc with Janeway wondering if being so far from civilization has made her go insane to the point where she can justify executing a member of her own crew.

The thing is as much as Tuvok sucks, Janeway cannot look forward to a resupply and requires the two original crew members back if at all possible.

Tuvok probably pinches harder as a pure vulcan though.

Plus the travesty of having Janeway order the death of a crew member pales in comparison to firing one cast member and forcing the other one to wear contacts for the rest of his run on the show.

That's literally when it starts to get good (okay...better...) I mean you get to see a bunch of crazy bugs and apes and shit with the same ridges on their head for like way too many episodes, and then in the last season they remember 'hey this was supposed to be a prequel show' and finally start bringing in some core material from TOS to expand on.
You can safely skip season 3 if you want, really TL;DR: Some aliens blow up Florida, p mad Enterprise hunts them down, turns out they are controlled by genderqueers stuck inside a giant tanning bed, who are trying to turn our universe into tanning beds, and Enterprise stops them. Also something about space bats going back in time to help Nazis, but really you don't need to know that...

ENT starts to improve in season 3. Sort of. But it only really got good once the temporal arc bullshit got done with and season 4 got on with having stuff actually happen. Then after 2/3 of a season of good episode there is the ending where fatriker ruins everything. But if it had continued, or been run as season 4 was from the get go it might have been a really great series. Archer and his crew are about as shit as Insaneway and hers.

Got to love TOS, it's a relic of an older age of television but it's very good at plot twists and taking you places other shows didn't. Plus the 3 parts of a man dynamic of it's leads is a gold standard.

I hate TV today, it has to rely on sex and violence to get by. And more recent shows are like one scene dialog, then a music video, now porn, okay back to the single line of dialog. talking about the new season of american horror story but that's a topic for another board Completly uncreative tripe.

There was easy ways of solving the problem, all I'm saying is that ordering his fucking execution was way too far. I mean, I would have written it like:
>Tuvix doesn't want to die, so Janeway says "Fine, I can't force you, but you will have to live with the knowledge that your life cost that of 2 others." which is a dick-statement, but completely true.
>Tuvix goes about his daily business, cooking for the crew, weapons officer duties, stuff like that, but people are noticably wary of him
>He goes to Kez and tells her that he wants to break up with Tuvoks wife and live with her. To which she informs him that she fell in love with Neelix and he had technically killed the man she loved
>Tuvix goes back to Janeway and tells her that after thinking about it, the part of him that's Neelix wants to be with Kes and the part of him that's Tuvok believes that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one.
>Janeway tells him that his life and needs do matter and that this decision shouldn't be made lightly, but he goes through with it anyway.

Janeway seems less like SFDebris' bitch-queen from hell and more like an actual fucking Starfleet captain, The rest of the crew seem like actual fucking people who don't trust a guy that is the spliced remains of 2 of their friends and Tuvix isn't left running around the bridge with a look of pure fucking terror as the crew has just turned into a lynch-mob.

OK so morally I agree with you, but in terms of Janeway I think she needed to kill Tuvix.

This is like, what, season 2 Janeway? She is desperate, has yet to really break, and is doing her best to make Starfleet decisions. She fucked up and killed Tuvix. We know.

Part of being a captain is knowing that your engineer is NOT coming back from the pod, but you send them anyway.

And one day the drunkest among us will rise to make a really fast rocket using some bullshit theory he wrote down while he was freebasing bath salts and use it to attract the attention of another space faring species.

After that nothing interesting will happen for like 80 years.

Ehhh, that's debatable. In Space Seed the actual exchange is:
>>Spock: The mid-1990s was the era of your last so-called World War.
>>McCoy: The Eugenics Wars.
But, we know from Voyager 'Future's End' that the late 90s also more or less happened the way we remember it, and later material (particularly the TNG premiere) pushes the timeline for WWIII later (for obvious reasons) to the mid-21st century.
So the general canon consensus seems to be that the Eugenics wars were a minor conflict that later culminated in WWIII and thus were historically seen as part of it. Alternatively, you could think that the various meddlings around in time we see happen throughout the various series actually end up having an effect on the timeline, and the different crews are actually remembering different histories.

Not sure if they explicitly mention it in the episode, but Future's End is an alternate reality where the timeship crash accelerates microchip processing to a level beyond Trek's own past. It's actually interesting to think about how if we didn't get consumer computing like we have now the deranged shit we could have been up to, like engineering humans and creating long distance space travel as well.

With all the time traveling done by Trek there's no way our exact world could possibly be the Trek world (obvious fact that it's a fictional series). We're likely living in some kind of Future's End type scenario where hyper technology was introduced by accident (or intention) to us in the past 40 or so years.

Why would she be desperate? I mean, Neelix isn't even technically a member of the crew anyway. She has just as many trained starfleet officers either way. And surely the only ever Vulcan-Talaxian hybrid to exist, or is likely to exist in the next couple of thousand years counts towards that "seek out new life" part of her mandate as a Starfleet officer. Plus, i'm sure it's pretty high up in the captains mandate of "Killing members of your crew, just because they turned into something you don't like is not permitted." I can get the part of ordering men to their deaths to save the ship and the crew, but this is entirely different. Nobodies life is at stake, there was no arbitrary timeframe of "If you don't split now, you never will be able to!" because the Doctor pretty much says that they can do it at any time.

That's a bit more ironic though, or fitting with the narrative that Roddenberry needed to let go of Star Trek to let it continue to grow. As his grip on the series loosened even his wife's character finally began to gain some depth.

So, my final review on Beyond is that it was pretty good.
It was better than Into Darkness, and maybe about equal to 2009.
It had a really good cast. There were some major grievances on my part, but also some pretty good "pros."

Grievances:
Why didn't they go around the nebula?
Why didn't they send in a scout ship before sending the MF'in Enterprise?
Why did they take that chick's word at face value?
That fucking motorcycyle
The Beastie Boys saving the day
Kirk's hair
The whole homegrown terrorist angle was a little too on the nose and topical


Pros:
The enemy race was kinda cool
Jalyn was kinda cool as well, interesting tech with her hologram devices
Dialogue was pretty good, especially between Bones and Spock
Great effects, especially with the battle with the swarm
The tribute to Nimoy was touching

Overall, probably give it a 7/10, rounding up.

Just watched the third Abrams Trek movie and I agree that it was better than the last two, but it was still disappointing. The entire movie was something blowing up or a fist fight or people quipping shitty one liners like they're at a stand up club. I thought Spock was really out of character and was basically acting like a grandiloquent human, not a Vulcan. They confuse big words for reason and logic. In the end it felt like someone was saying "this is what research shows people want so let's shove it down their throats!"

No facts just my feelings: Crusher / Picard love interest was not in line with the vision of the show from someone. Pulaski is OK when you get to know her and she serves as an elder foil to Picard which helps us understand Picard a bit more. Really though I think it was about getting BevCrush out of the way so that Picard could slut around. Although he never really does.

I suppose I can see where you're all coming from, especially with an elder foil (Riker is supposed to be younger than Picard, right?) but really she hasn't really added anything to the dynamic that the main cast already provided.

Even Wesley added something being a bit younger than the others... even if he was a tad bit too, uh, well liked.

Gates McFadden left the show to pursue her movie career. They had to replace her with someone, that was out of their hands. They tried to replicate the Bones character because in early TNG they were still trying to be TOS round 2 and hadn't found their own voice yet.
I think people give ol' Pulz too hard of a time. Yes, she's a condescending cunt, but that's the whole point of her character. Everyone up until she arrives is all peace love and Kumbaya, she comes in as basically an opinionated bigot, and we get to see her character evolve into someone who would at least not smash the Kumbaya guitar.

Quoting memory alpha here:
>>An official announcement states, that McFadden had left the series to pursue other career options.

and

>>During her break from Star Trek, McFadden played Cathy Ryan (coincidentally another doctor with a husband named Jack) in the movie The Hunt for Red October

It's true Crosby also left to pursue her film career. Genre TV actors leaving genre TV to move into film is pretty much par for the course, it happened to almost all the alumni of Star Trek who actually made it out of the Trek quagmire. There was also a huge shakeup between seasons 1 and 2 of TNG, with Hurley becoming showrunner and basically wanting to turn everything on it's head, so they may have both seen the writing on the wall at the same time and both decided to leave for similar reasons.

Started watching Voyager since the marathon is on BBCA.

I definitely wouldn't call it bad, but it's just not really grabbing me. I know the shows tend to start out slow and everything, but it really does feel like they're just kind of casually exploring the Delta Quadrant instead of trying to get back home. I'm hoping it changes into its own thing later on just like with TNG and DS9, but from what I read that doesn't happen.

And the characters. I really want to like them but it seems like the actors just isn't getting into them. Maybe it's not them but more the writing. Janeway is far less controversial than I thought she'd be, but again I heard she's not as bad in the earlier seasons. Kes is kawaii as fuck, too bad her actress lost her mind.

Still, it still has the overall Trek feeling, if nothing else. It just seems like lost potential.

The biggest issue with this episode was that it couldn't really work at all with the status quo reset button nature of Voyager. Tuvok and Neelix were going to come back. Something like this deserves at least a two parter.

What >>56639 wrote was good, but I'd add something like Tuvok and Neelix were still like technically alive and his existence was causing them pain. Tuvix would wonder if it's right for him to live like that and finally deciding to sacrifice his life to bring them back. Only problem with that is that it kinda lets Janeway off morally and I feel like that was the major point of the episode.

The status quo is the biggest issue with VOY. Characters develop but the ship and universe don't around them. The doctor and seven both become people and then decent people. 2Vac further learns about humanity (or at least gets more comfortable showing others he actually gets people all along), Torres confronts her daddy issues, Paris becomes responsible rather than an angry nihilist (remains a smug asshole though), even Harry becomes confident (imagine if Janeway wasn't keeping him down) ironically it's the two highest ranked officers who change least. But then I guess they have to be almost as static as the ship.

In endgame Janeway shows she accumulated all sorts of tech in voyager's journey but by the end of season 7 they've not actually got anything except a ship they designed themselves. It would have been cool if they'd collaberated with another race at some point and co invented an upgrade or two for their ship. They could have had episodes favours to earn better weapons, shields power or scanners to pass a dangerous area and shit like that during the various seasons. This would make voyager an even bigger power by the end of the series but they were going to send it home long before it could go toe to toe with borg cubes without using a limited resource, needing time to rebuild/replace some parts or ammo. Of course for this to work Janeway would have to develop a sense of who to trade with and trust and who the "good guys" are rather than fucking up one trade deal beyond belief then giving up entirely. But hey, status quo right?

They pay lip service to that shit, but it is there if you think about it. Like they mention "Borg shields and enhancements" and they do have a bunch of Borg infrastructure on the ship that Seven uses as well. They unveil the astrometrics lab as a big achievement. This is all Seven of Nine related somehow. And of course the Delta Flyer. Which...they should have had like 8 of those fuckers, going out and scouting on long range sensors for resources, energy, wormholes, weird intergalactic transporters, etc. They clearly had some kind of manufacturing wing in that shuttle bay with the number of shuttle craft they lost during that fucking show.

But yeah it would have been cool to see more of a focus on that stuff, and certainly to see more persistent battle damage. One thing they could have easily done is, instead of having extras walking down a hallway past our crew during expository scenes, they could have had them doing repair work. Or installing new technology. Etc.

Your entire post is why I've never bothered watching much of Voyager.

They took the most exciting Trek premise to ever happen, the one with the most room, that by the end of the series it could have been a COMPLETELY different set of people, a completely different ship coming back from the Delta Quadrant.

But like you said, status quo. They ended the fucking show on a goddamn reset-episode ending.

People get mad at me for saying Enterprise was a better show, and even though it had an abhorrently atrocious ending, at LEAST there was real development; there was a real, tangible effect on the show's universe and you knew when it ended that the things they did had a real impact, that the characters changed as the show went on.

If I was a multi billioniare and could buy all the rights to Trek, I think i'd start with a complete reboot of Voyager. There was SOOOOOO much wasted potential there. The writers were ahead of the curve on their pitches for the show, and the execs as always were a generation behind on implementing them.

Yeah I forgot a lot of that shit but I think that sums up why they failed. I mean I'm not saying season 7 voyager should have been unrecognisable but it should have a few upgrades. I mean they've met so many more advanced races. The thing about humans and tech is, if we have an idea we're very good at finding a way to make it happen. If you've seen it happen and probably have scanner data, then I think with a bunch of starfleet officers knocking around it should be very doable.

Surely with all the enemy they fought on arrival back at the alpha quandrant they should have advanced starfleet weapons shielding and engine tech about 15 years each but you get the feeling that all they provided was good test data for a now established ship class.

I don't know about that either. I mean, certainly they've met advanced races, but my impression was always that the Delta Quadrant was a backwater generally. Other than the Borg and the Hirogen and some aliens of the week.

Voyager is also often referred to as one of the most technologically advanced ships in the region whenever people see it. She's simply outnumbered most of the time.

I thought of another big innovation that kind of counts: The weird duplicate Voyager managed to perfect slipstream technology, so IMO the real Voyager crew would have been capable of that same feat without the same results assuming they had whatever idea duplicate crew had.

Looking back on it, it wasn't Slip Stream but just some enhanced warp core. And they don't use it until the end when they're desperate to get back to the Y Class planet.

People who genuinely think DS9 is bad simply have bad taste. There's no real other way to put it. It's a well made show that achieves what it set out to do, and much more. I suspect there are also a lot of people who dislike it for not being TNG or Voyager. As in, they simply do not like the core concept of DS9. When I was young, there were still a lot of the old curmudgeons hurduring about how it can't be proper Star Trek because they don't "trek" anywhere with the space station.

This was pretty good. I heard rumor that this was meant to be a seasonal arc but UPN wouldn't allow it. Too bad, Annorax would've made a good Big Bad. Also, this basically earned Janeway the title of Insaneway, even though there are probably other moments before this that were more deserving.

Data's subplot was far more interesting than Worf's drama. In fact, this entire two parter should've been about Data instead. It was far more entertaining seeing Data having a trip than Worf being grumpy all the time. I mean damn the second part was really fucking boring. The only interesting thing was Worf being racist against Romulans, but even that kinda faltered and I think that was in the first part. The second part was just boring, at least Treshold had the entire "what the fuck were they thinking" angle. It's just like someone just wanted to write an episode where Worf is grumpy about bullshit. I can't even call the second part really bad. It just... exists. First part was great, second part was there and boring.

Throughout 7 seasons, I never thought to myself "this is a really shitty episode" until I got to the last episode.

The final battle was awesome but everything else was a mess. How they wrapped up all the lingering stories was clumsy as hell. I was expecting much more from the pa'wraith storyline, but it was fucking nothing.

Season 7 mostly sucks. It's like Vic Fontaine was the representation of decay and cancer in the show. It declined and continued to decline all the way until the end once he shows up.

Instead of what they did, the war should have wrapped up at the beginning of season 7, giving way for closure and trek politics about what happens after Cardaassia gets fucked, more prophets stuff that wasn't retarded soap opera bullshit, etc.

I agree, DS9's whole war thing was awesome..for about 2.5 seasons. Then it just got old. They would have "explored how war affects Star Trek ideals" much better if they had spent at least half of Season 7 showing life going back to normal. Maybe station at DS9 a science ship instead of a warship. Show reconstruction, do a hardcore PTSD episode. Instead of whatever that nonsense was at the end.

agreeded. It was so odd to see the war being to slow down, and seemingly ending in a peace... then in the final 7 episodes it ramps up 100 fold with Breen joining the Dominion, Earth getting blown up, Political upheaval for the Klingons, and the sudden total rebellion of Cardassia, and finally a super fleet being put together in record time and attacking Cardassia prime.

I think maybe the war could have wrapped up in the middle of season 7 and the rest of the season could have been about tracking down Gul Dukat as he tries to release the pa'wraiths and giving us some more closure on the state of the galaxy.

They set up something really interesting at the end, showing us that it's a whole new era for multiple cultures like the Ferengi, the Klingons, and Cardassia. I kind of want to see that.

I disagree. However I agree that he also makes perfect sense as a closeted homosexual. He also makes perfect sense as a repressed isolated englishman. People like him are rather unfortunately two a penny.

I don't get why he has to be gay unless you ignore all the times his attraction to women causes him problems or disappointment or even is a major plot point or moment or character development. But yeah if you completely ignore that. He's gay. The same way that if you ignore all all the red and blue that the American flag is just a blank white cloth.

His fight with Hayes is probably the gayest scene in star trek though, even gayer than DS9 mirror universe episodes. I think you're just caught up on that. Garak is a gay guy who was rewritten straight by the execs, Reed is just a sperglord in space.

Maybe the problem is I don't know enough (or any really) englishmen.

Just rewatching E2 right now, and he is all tore up that Reed2 ends up dying alone. I suppose that fits either interpretation.

I guess what I am saying is that I think the stuffy englishdude shtick is itself a metaphor for his repressed sexuality. The show was on Fox or some shit, and all full of muh 911 during the anti-gay marriage moves in various states.... not safe territory for a gay character....

Whatever though. I dig your perspective and I concede to your points.

So far this Xindi arc isn't that bad, but it looks like the whole season is one big arc with occasional "standalone" episodes based in the expanse.

The original was a test. The biggest issue with S3 is it fucking drags and drags. And then it even drags one episode into season 4. They could have cut about half the S3 plot out and it'd have been fine. It's like "can something happen now?" everything takes twice as long as it needs to. 24 episodes for a single story that basically just restores status quo.

On the bright side on season 4 they get it right. They have multi episode arcs that span 2 or 3 episodes with about the same amount of universe development and stuff happening and those are really good. I think comparing the good in S3 with 3 episodes of S4 is probably about right. If you come straight out of Season 3 into 4, it will blow your mind. This is down to an increased incidence of a) things happening (I reckon it's 8 times denser and they all represent historic (proto) federation milestones) and b) Shran.

Yeah I can definitely see that. I'm watching Similitude now and I'm also noticing that they're being really cheap in plot devices.

>An episode where T'pol gets sick (Vulcan zombie episode-wasn't actually that bad)
>An episode where Hoshi is mentally held captive
>An episode where Archer loses long term memory
>And an episode where Trip suffers a huge injury

All 4 of those episodes are within a 5 episode span. If they weren't so close together it wouldn't feel so cheap, but it's starting to get old. You can tell they're being pretty lazy.

And yeah all I've seen of Season 4 is the mirror episode, and that episode is amazing, so I've seen some of the potential. I'm looking forward to getting there but don't wanna skip anything, so regardless of how tedious season 3 gets, I'll trudge through it.

I can't bring myself to watch old episodes anymore. I've watched them all through so many times and memories of the eras they represent come flowing back to me like PTSD. Some good (Star Trek TNG era) some bad (Voyager era, enterprise era) but not having to do with anything in particular except my own life.

I feel sad when I think that there probably won't be a new Star Trek series that isn't just a remake of an old one. I think that Gene would have wanted new content to be produced with the same spirit of going boldly into the unknown, representing new things that people did not understand in their modern life in the form of alien encounters, etc, that sort of thing.

"There are not enough aliens on this show!" I recall Gene saying once about TNG (which fixed itself soon afterwards). I feel that there are not enough aliens in new Sci-fi shows being produced, it's all about gritty realism or marketable "dark" space horror thematic bullshit.

NB Just my two-cents. I am hard to please. I will probably watch ENT later this week anyway because it's the series I've watched the least.

Why is the borg queen such a succubus?
I expected better from those who have transcended mere flesh. I actually would have thought that after however long of a period she's been through where sex is completely irrelevant she wouldn't have been so suggestive.
Really, she should be a lot more autistic like seven of nine but I guess she's supposed to be the charisma of the borg so maybe her role is specialized.
Still, disappointed in her as always.

Honestly you're right, the Borg queen is all kinds of wrong, it should have just been Vger again.

Or better yet, don't add something like that which goes against the very nature of the Borg shown so far?

Working my way through DS9, and fuck I can't stand the Bajoran-Cardie conflict, up until this episode. This episode was just so well executed. I give a lot of credit to the guy who played the Gul Darhe'el wannabe. His "because they were clean" monologue and all the other banter with Kira was so well done, and he was just so based. And then with the twist, and him breaking down in tears and wanting the Cardies to come forth for their crimes. It was just so well done. The obvious comparisons to Nazi work/death camps was drawn pretty well, at least in this episode, I must say. Fucking excellent.

As someone else said before, Voyager feels more like summer camp in space than a desperate journey to get back home. I don't really find that a bad thing necessarily, I don't know if I could handle the series being entirely like Year of Hell, which was good shit I definitely won't deny.

Voyager is just kinda... I dunno. It has Trekking but it doesn't exactly change up much from its predecessors. But it's Trek, and every series has it bad and good. I'd rather watch Threshold than whatever is hip and with it these days on television.

I really should get around watching ENT, but it seems like I'd hate Archer. I'm always seeing him getting his ass kicked in screen caps.

He gets his ass kicked because he tries to go straight into being Picard without the established position required for Picard's variety of diplomacy. After two or so seasons of getting his ass kicked he admits it's a good idea for the ship to have guns on it and starts becoming more Kirkish to suit the frontier

When you look at it.. ENT had a concept of making Archer go from a doofus to Earth's first seasoned deep space captain.. they had this concept of character growth, it was just so sloppily done, and ended before we could see what any of these people would become.

They had a good idea, they just did a shit job. That's pretty much Enterprise in a nutshell.

A part of me kind of hopes that the idea behind Archer being the 'shadowy future dude' was going to be explained in the 7th season series finale 3-parter where they fucked with the timeline to prevent the Temporal Cold War from ever even happening and undoing the Xindi war as well to prevent some horrible event from destroying the galaxy or some shit. Or they could have not fucked around with all this time travel bullshit in the first place and just made it so it was the Romulans that attacked Earth like it should have been.

Archer is my least favorite captain. He's worse than even Janeway imo because her instability is at least amusing and leads to cool plotlines.

However, he doesn't get as much of the spotlight in ENT as Picard gets in TNG or Janeway gets in VOY. My impression of him is simply bland, although to put it broadly he isn't notable enough to be a deterrent to watching the series.

Watching DS9 and starting to realize that Odo is definitely the best security officer. Why?

>He is a master detective. He's had a lot more detective experience on ds9, solving and helping to solve various cases ranging from petty theft to terrorist attacks/international espionage/terrorist attacks.
>Obviously, his shapeshifter abilities. If they had the budget to do moe cgi, Odo easily could have been the most badass chatacter in all of Trek history.
>His strength. It's not really well defined how strong he is, but I've seen him do things in hand to hand combat that would make the badass version of Worf jealous.
>Just the idea of him and his being around must be terrifying for anyone looking to cross him. Fear Factor. Mostly because of the unknowns. He's unpredictable in tactics and foreign in physical nature.

You have to define the rules. Because Odo could turn into a small bird, fly into the air, turn into a giant boulder and crush Data if it's a straight up murder you're looking for. If Data had time to prepare, Odo would be a fine powder or dust within 60 seconds.

I think Odo would likely take it, he's more strategically minded. You saw how well Data did against that old guy in Strategema the first time he played. Though I'd wager since, I guess, Data participated in the Dominion War, he would have developed some strategy for fighting Changelings in hand to hand combat. Odo is no ordinary Changeling though, he was raised by Cardassians.

If we had a holodeck, we could just walk up to it and say, "Make TNG 14 seasons longer, covering the Dominion war and the space between the movies, bring back Worf and Data, and like, try to make the dialogue not as hammy, you know?" and it would be like "Ok." And the shit it came up with would probably be better than the actual writers on the show. And you could do that with any show you had ever wanted to see, or anything for that matter.

I think the holodeck malfunction is just something you need to look at like car accidents, or plane crashes. It happens, but it's all still safe enough for literal every day use. it's just stuck in this uncanny valley effect where people start focusing so much on the few times it goes wrong that it seems more dangerous than it is. And let's face it, half the injuries we see that result from the Holodeck are people breaking bones during Parrisses Squares or disabling the security themselves.

the real problem with those holodeck episodes is that it's often rather contrived. Like, pull lever X on the bridge, and suddenly the holodeck malfunctions. But I'm OK with that, because an episode is about the idea, not the method used to arrive at it. For instance, in Our Man Bashir, they wanted to do a James Bond sendup. Well, they have to do that on the holodeck. Then they want to highlight fantasy versus reality, so the stakes have to be real. The entire episode is a meta-joke about James Bond. I can take the holodeck malfunctioning for that.

It's honestly really hard to ask writers to not mess with the holodeck, because you've given them a tool to place the characters in ANY context they can think of. James Bond movie? There you are. The Old West? Why not? An unironically racist interpretation of an Irish village? Shoot for the stars! And some other episodes have this really "holodeck episode" kind of feel to them, while not being on the holodeck. That one where Q puts them in Robin Hood, for instance. Or the one where they meet Mark Twain. Both of those feel exactly like holodeck episodes, except with "aliens" instead of "holodeck malfunction". Yet nobody is quipping that living in the Trek universe would be dangerous because of all those aliens constantly messing with you.

You're right but I think people don't quip about those because the holodeck is a lazy way of doing it and it seems more like cars "it's not actually very safe but it's just cool enough" and perhaps it gets safer over time.

Maybe also without lawsuits and compensation the federation's holosuites are the most bleeding edge but risky. Quark's holosuite issues happen when someone else goes wrong as well. I get the feeling his have much more robust safeties because ferengi might say "buyer beware" or whatever but reputation has a tangible and often measurable value. Those are his livelihood and if the Negus gets raped by a lonely Moriartym Quark will get sued hard. The feds will just be like "what money?".

I don't think it's more lazy than saying "lol these aliens have this culture/skill". In the end, it's hard to define "lazy" with a setting like Star Trek. TOS itself was the epitome of lazy, with just pulling shit out of its ass at every oppertunity.

Interesting point about the Ferengi, too. And I don't think they'd be worried about shit like shame. In fact, a Ferengi claiming to be stiffed on a Vulcan Love Slave program would probably get a nod from the judge while everyone in the room goes "nice".

I don't know. ENT looks as bad as ever to me. Maybe people imagined it was worse because of all the shit-talking, but even rewatching episodes I enjoyed, I find myself discovering that I like them less than I did initially. There are some good ones, but I still wouldn't call it a good show overall. "Mildly entertaining" isn't high praise, really. It's competently put together, but that's all I can say about it. I've watched two cancelled science fiction shows recently, and one of them was outright B quality, with a stereotypical snarling villain. I enjoyed it far more than I did ENT. And it has one thing ENT never had: Self-awareness.

The other was The 4400, and I have to admit Combs had the better roll in ENT. If all of ENT were like Shran, it would have been a good show. Funny, really, how The 4400 had both Summer Glau and Jeffrey Combs as a pair, yet put them in relatively muted roles. But it's also nice to see Combs act like a normal person for once. The man is a great actor.

Precious cargo is season 2. It gets worse but it also gets better.
Season 4 is really good barring the end. Season 2 is enjoyable space opera starting to find it's feet. Season 1 is mediocre and ropey. Fuck season 3. fuck it.

The first season the show was finding it's feet. Season 2 they started to find a way. In season 3 executive meddling intensified in season 4 the execs gave up and let the show run.

ENT isn't awful but it's pretty weak. I really enjoy a lot of season 4. It is also the season with the most shran. Season 5 would have started with Andorians in the federation and Shran shipless. If only...

I watched an excellent episode of VOY this afternoon on BBC America. I think it was in season fiver. In short, and with spoiler text just in case, B'ellana dies, but it turns out that everybody is really just space goo clones of the crew(memetic gel) and they all die right before reaching the real crew who could have saved them. What I liked about it was that they tease us with a main crew-members impending death (not an uncommon thing in trek ofc), presumably knowing that we'll shrug it off via assumed plot armor, and then, playing perfectly on our expectations, they actually kill B'ellana! You wait for her to come back, but instead things continue to get worse, and finally they all die off, until the last surviving and strongest member of the crew, Harry Kim, is left commanding the bridge while seven tries to desperately eject the warp core because they're trapped in warp the memetic memes are breaking up the whole ship is turning into goo and I feel a strong sense of empathy for goo Janeway as I realize that she was realizing that the death of her crew was being realized imagine how much that would hurt someone like her who is so excessively protective of her crew end spoiler

I'm making my way through DS9.
I'm finding most of the characters compelling, but Sisko is honestly one of the least interesting captains, even if he does an excellent job. He's just a bland character. And his son is basically Wesley-New and Improved. Even Archer had more personality than him.
Honestly, the DS9 crew is pretty boring. It's the conflict around them that makes them more interesting.
I've always kinda hated Kira because of how whiny she is about the Cardies and her experience with them, but she's actually one of the more compelling of the crew, besides Odo.
Jadzia is nice, but there really isn't much to her, and the episodes that are centered on her are boring or straight up campy, like the one where she does some ritual where she gets to meet the previous symbionts or whatever.
I don't have to explain why Obrien is boring, but he has some great episodes that are centered on him, like the one where he's trapped in a prison for years in his mind.
Bashir is alright but not very compelling at all. Not much to say about him. He's a whiz kid nerd who loves the ladies. Not much else going on.
Quark, Garak, and Dukat are definitely the best characters, but they don't get enough screen time. Like I said earlier, they're a part of the conflict that goes on around the main cast.

All this being said, I'm only up to Season 4 episode 1 so we'll see what else happens. I totally forgot that Worf was even in DS9, and I see that he's about to join in.

Well, as the poster above you pointed out, Trek has a habit of dangling crew death over us and then always pussying out. The strength of the episode was wrongfooting the viewer into thinking they were dealing with regular Voyager. But the point also has bearing on regular Voyager: These are perfect copies, doing everythong the normal crew would have done. So we finally see Voyager fail. And not fake fail in the way Voyager does so often, but actually, tragically doing all the right things and still failing. As Picard said, "It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not a weakness; that is life".

That made Goo Voyager seem, in some ways, more real than real Voyager.

I understand all that but, I dunno, I just couldn't get myself to feel it. Maybe I'll give it another fair chance when I'm not in such a bad mood. Probably didn't help I still had a bad taste from the Space AIDS episode.

To be fair, almost every single drama, especially pulpy TV dramas dangle the death of principle actors around every episode, and only recently have people decided to start pulling the trigger, just because it's so spicy, but there are consequences you have to build into the show format for that to work (constantly bringing in new regulars, etc.)

Voyager was set up to be the kind of show where, by the end of the series, all that was left was 'a few planks and half a sail' as Chakotay said, with a quarter of the crew left alive on a swiss-cheese ship and only like Kim being alive of the main cast. But then you would (especially 90's average TV viewer you) would be like WTF? Where's Borg tits? Where's Bald-and-sings?

So Courseblivion let them do what they really should've been doing with the whole show, if they really wanted to go for the tragic, rather than feels goodman angle.

I've always said Voy needed to be darker like the new Galactica, at least in tone not really in the same style and art direction. People needed to die, the ship needed to break and cause handicaps later as no star fleet equipment refills. Resource gathering should have been more important than the odd off screen/ start an EP by returning to voy after weeks of a mission.

Well, I've noticed that as years have gone by, I find myself enjoying episodes I thought were boring, while suddenly disliking ones I used to like. A fresh perspective can do wonders.

I've always had the feeling as if ENT and VOY had their wires crossed somehow. Because ENT did a lot of the stuff VOY should have been doing in regards to being stuck in the middle of nowhere with no support. While VOY focused a lot on diplomatic type stuff that ENT only seemed to really grasp in its final season. In fact, Year of Hell seems a lot like a cross between the Suliban and Xindi arcs.

And to be fair, Bald-and-Sings is one of my favorite characters in Trek. I also think Battlestar Galactica represents an unfavourable turn in modern television where high stakes and serious issues are confused with good television. BSG was very exciting while it was unfolding, but when I rewatched some of it on the tube, I found my attention wandering. The collect-the-Cylons doesn't work twice. Its philosophical points seem aloof as to be in fedora territory, sometimes.

I think I already said it earlier, but a recent (cancelled) show called Revolution I enjoyed was enjoyable specifically because it was very aware of what it was doing. There was room for some levity, and paradoxically that made it easier to take its farfetched plot seriously. It's still seriously B, don't get me wrong, but I got more out of it than I expected.

>Course Oblivion

Pretending STD doesn't exist, the next Star Trek should be a Twilight Zone anthology show all set in the ST universe and all telling individual stories that illuminate a larger story about the q or the iconians or some shit.

Point is that being an anthology, each episode could have a different setting, and some stories can end poorly. Sometimes they don't warp out in time.

Just watched Voyager "Coda". That episode is weird. We never find out what that being was. He gets pissed and says he'll consume Janeway one day, but is it responsible for all near death experiences? What if you have no chance to come back to life; does it get you? Seems pretty dark that in Star Trek there is the possibility that when you die you just get consumed by some weird alien being. Any kind of theories about what it was or means for the Trek universe?

Voyager subtly plays with the idea that different species go to an afterlife specific to them (it's not the most original idea, it's like saying that Christians go to Christian heaven, Muslims go to Muslim heaven, etc.)

Although in the same way it kind of pulls the punch, leaving it up to you to decide whether it's suggesting this is what actually happens to people when they die, or just that people's expectations build a heaven in the near-death state (which is the issue in real life too) :

>B'Elanna goes to Klingon hell, gets angry
>Neelix DOESN'T go to the Great Forest, is greatly disappointed
>Those aliens who, when they died, went to live in that planet's rings as energy
>AKUCHII MUYAAA

And then of course 'Coda'...so we can say that either there is or isn't an afterlife in Star Trek, but if there is, each species/religion has a unique one. So that means either that all humans are always only eaten by the Coda dude -- that our afterlife in particular and perhaps afterlives in general are actually bunk and just ways for energetic beings to eat our life force after we're done with it...

...or that (and this is the one I prefer) that was just some freaky Delta quadrant alien who attacked Janeway in particular, and all the stuff he said was just lies to trick her.

This guy: True eventual devourer of your immortal soul or just a lying dipshit -- you decide.

You know, Voyager is actually surprisingly good. That's the best way to describe it. Surprisingly good. Every time.

With everything I've heard about it, I was certainly not expecting to enjoy it as much as I am. I wouldn't call it the best, but it's hardly the worst either. Though, I'm finding season 5 to be pretty poor overall.

I have a secret theory that Neelix is actually the Caretaker Array alien, and that he spends his many many many years spying on aliens across the galaxy, and abducts ships for the purpose of riding them back all the way to their home system. Everything that happens in Voyager that is weird and has no real explanation is just Neelix fucking with them to make things interesting.

So for this episode, he was basically doing the Nagilum thing to learn about how each species on Voyager would deal with experiencing their particular afterlife.
