That ep of Enterprise where trip and hoshi got infected by a silicon based virus and there were super advanced species that were observing the whole thing to see how the humans would react. That was one of the better episodes of Enterprise.

Bro, there have been so many great Trek episodes. It almost warms the heart thinking back at just how many great episodes there have been. Here's a few from off the top of my head:
ENT
Tripp gets pregnant/Federation discovers holoemitters
VOY
Too many to mention really
Arguably the best finale in the franchise
The race where Tom pilots the Delta Flyer
When they get trapped in the Void
Neelix ghost story episode
Anything with Broccoli
The Voyager impersonators who are ripping people off
The one where Janeway forces them to repair the nightmare beacon, giving you a glimpse into how much of a psycho she really is under that cold exterior
Seven origin story where her family gets assimilated
One word three letters: ECH
DS9
Baseball game in the holodeck
Baseball card episode with Nog and Jake
Casino heist
The one where Nog gets his leg blown off
The one where Nog rehabs with Vic Fontaine
The one where Sisqo enlists Garak to help them lure the Romulans into the war
Quark thinks he's dying and unwittingly sells his remains to Brunt
TNG
Second best series finale, close second
Anything with Broccoli and especially when it deals with his holoaddiction
The one where Wesley gets stabbed
And a bunch more,
TOS
I hate IRL hippies but I love space hippies, even singing space hippies
The Harry Mudd episodes
There's so many more.

The one where the crew meets a race of lizard zealots related to Earth's dinosaurs. Probably the best Voyager episode, and also maybe Chakotay's best performance.

DS9's best episodes are either bottle episodes/episodes that are completely standalone like The Visitor Duet is overrated though or sit on the other end of the scale and are great because of how they work in an overall arc. The latter type of episode is really hard to pick out one of a series of them and call it great in and of itself.

That is exactly as I see her as a captain. You have a ton of cadets at SF Academy. I feel like she was the type that just kind of put her head down and put the work in so she eventually got a Captain position on a not really important ship. I feel like there are tons of not very significant ships that don't have competent captains like Picard, Sisko, et al. They were the best and brightest. She was just a low level captain on a low level ship who just got happened to get flung way out into the Gamma Quadrant.

Nit picking, but Sisko really wasn't. Kirk, Picard, and Archer are all top-of-the-class type individuals, but remember sending Sisko to DS9 was originally sending him off to a backwater no one really gave a shit about. Then he got forced into situations that steadily escalated his importance.
Very much agree with the characterization of Janeway though. She's really a scientist, she's not necessarily suited for command of a ship that isn't primarily on scientific missions (which was Voyager's original mission profile, a long-range science vessel.)

Well his post was originally a commander's role. It was one of those cases where he was "acting up" and they realised he was doing captain's duties competently and made it an official promotion. Turned out he was a good strategist too. Ironic because he was an "admiralty is punishment" guy but while Kirk, Picard, Riker (another top of the class guy) and Worf, O'Brien were tacticians he was the only captain who probably would have fitted on the admiralty board, he even was willing to make the little compromises to maintain the federation code of ethics.

I imagine Sexual Chocolate did okay though but he was definitely a strategy man. They let him design the defiant, again though his overall strategy of "make a brutal combat vessel designed to be durable but also small enough that it takes fewer hits and with huge amounts of weapons so it can trade with much bigger bundles of resources and crew and win" was good. He just wasn't O'Brien and so couldn't make it work. O'Brien turned his idea into the best ship in the quadrant tonne for tonne/per crew member.

The Defiant was actually designed to fight the Borg.

You know until you said that I never put that connection together with Sexchoc's origin story in the pilot. He spent the time after the loss of his wife and ship designing a ship to hunt down what hurt him. It's Moby-Dick, how did they not take advantage of this? Now I'll always be sad we didn't get a Sexchoc>Ahab, Pequod>Defiant, White Whale>Borg plot, although I guess that's what 'broke your little ships' really is and we can just imagine FC happened to him instead (which makes for a double-mocha sexual chocolate.)

See, I actually knew this when I posted it.

I think they did take full advantage. By having him move on and let go. Not pursuing and being consumed by revenge is a big deal. It might not seem much because it's *not* doing a thing but that's deceptive. Sex Choc's entire arc is him finding something new to care about and caring about it.

Also about the defiant: In the battle of wolf 359 the federation lost what 20K people? The cube carries about 50K. In terms of resources committed the federation were going to get crushed. They actually damaged it. At the first contact battle there's an even smaller fleet and they're not as hopeless. It would take 700 defiants to match the manpower of a single cube but I think they'd actually take it out in a couple of volleys while the cube would maybe hit and disable 2 or 3. Borg sphere are 11K and they're basically a joke. The borg don't have great engineering or tactics or anything, they just have the ability to repurpose and use resources at a huge rate and ships that are designed presumably to be modular and so easy to maintain, repair and if they get hit really hard whatever 75% is missing the rest can be flown somewhere to be broken down and used to make or patch up another cube like it was lego bricks.

The job it does is "kill other ships, no frills" and that's a very transferable job. If it can outmatch a cube man for man then it's good. When the Jem Hadar turn up their ships however that are as spartan and efficient with the Dominion winning wars by just hurling resources at them the Defiant does the job.

Well Federation ships are consistently overbuilt and overcrewed. Nobody else uses hundreds or thousands of people for ships on a roughly Galaxy class level of quality (or slightly less but enough that 2x would beat it) from what we've seen on screen.

It's weird seeing those Galaxy class ships in the battles we see in DS9. I mean most of the saucer section is crew and family quarters right? Do they evacuate the families and fly around in an empty ship? Or do they fly into battle with hundreds of civilians on board. Neither option makes much sense.

The Galaxy class had to be the final lol Gene ship. Defiant has no family space for obvious reasons. Voy didn't have any family aside from personal quarters, no mention of a class room on board. Afaik ENT E didn't have family space either but that may just have been the result of being a movie only ship with no time to show the kids. Either way having family on the ship is retarded. The US armed forces stopped doing that the second three brothers does on the same ship in wwii. I can't imagine how they got families on these ships that run across fatal anomalies like a bad habit.

Wrong. A lot of space on Galaxy Class ships is modular and can be adapted to purpose. Families don't have to occupy the living space, either. Also the saucer section provides more options for engagement and exfiltration/escape. It's not just an empty hull with beds inside.

Pretty regularly in the early seasons any time there was a major battle there would be some quibbling about whether they should jettison the saucer first. IRL, they would probably almost always jettison the saucer before an engagement, but the producers probably found out really fast that it wasn't as exciting for the viewers as they hoped and it cost way too much to film.

Also, remember in 'Yesterday's Enterprise' they repurpose the saucer for troop transport. Lots of uses for that beautiful behemoth.

Fun fact: On the constitution class, not only is the saucer jettisonable, but also the body section and the individual nacelles, we just never see it happen. It makes sense to have lots of survival craft on a starship.

That episode mang. It just breaks your brain.

I felt like it was hit and miss. I think it was saddled with the baggage that the medium of cartoons carried in most of the west at that time and that's responsible for most of the "miss". One one hand Shatner does not take to voice acting, on the other Larry Niven wrote an episode.

Just re-watched Voyager S5E2, "Drone," where
a transporter mishap mixes Seven's nanoprobes with the Doctor's mobile emitter, creating a borg, and it got me thinking, couldn't essentially the same thing end up getting someone pregnant?
If nothing else, it provides plausible deniability.

Possible but very unlikely.
The hand-wavy reason this happened is because the doctor basically _is_ the emitter, is mechanical and the nanoprobes would "match".

The relevant cells would have to turn up in the related body bits and nowhere else.
With sabotage on the other hand... come to think of it that sounds like an episode of O'Brien at work.

TOS suffers from being of an age where they didn't have a good handle on how to TV program. It was a young media/art form and had only been with a mass audience for a generation or so. The ideas were good but they were still not entirely clear on what worked in the format resulting in the mixed results. TV has gone through trends and the like but how acting and pacing translate onto the box got figured out some time before the end of the 80s.

Balance of terror is one where it all worked though. Great pacing, tonnes of drama, good acting all things they were still not quite sure on for the format of TV but they happened to get right.
