I'm not quite clear why you use TNG as The Barometer By Which All Things Are Measured, but hey, it's your thread.
Question: if an episode that you deem "could have been easily adapted to work on TNG" ends up being executed more effectively as an Enterprise
episode, do you add half a star?
on Voyager I counted the number of photon torpedoes they fired (96 from a supply of 38), shuttles they lost (16) and the number of times we saw Ensign Kim die (a disappointing 3 times)
This is hilarious. Talk about accountability. I suppose you could count how many times Trip dies/nearly dies.
