Re: Hooray! A "scene I want to see" appears!

I can't remember the specific episodes but I know in TOS there are at least a couple times where during the course of the show some red shirts have died and the final scene is the main crew yukking it up on the bridge. I always thought that was pretty lame.

Re: Hooray! A "scene I want to see" appears!

I always wanted to see two things - namely, that Starfleet realise projectile weapons would probably trash some Borg and get some into production, and a Borg trying to assimilate a Founder. So yeah, thank you Lesser Evil!

I'll never understand why the hell they took those guns out of service they were clearly brilliant...

^^Any weapon that works against the Borg is only going to work once, or a few times at most, because then they'll adapt to it. The value of any given weapon in fighting the Borg is not in the weapon's intrinsic abilities, but in its novelty.

Re: Hooray! A "scene I want to see" appears!

Even so, you'd have to be a sociopath not to feel some regret at the necessity. Hell, it's even an established part of Picard's character -- recall the final log entry in "Conspiracy" where he expressed regret at the loss of life he had to inflict.
Actually, Picard did feel some regret. When he hears that one guy screaming because he was getting incinerated by the baryon sweep, Picard stops short, and tightens his lip.

And when Kelsey's ship blew, Picard stared at the safety chip he had swiped, and if memory serves, he gives a little sigh.

Yeah, those are both nice moments, but I get the feeling they come more from the contributions of Patrick Stewart and the episode's director than necessarily from the script. Then again, what do I know?

You reckon there wouldn't be stage directions from the scriptwriter describing how he wants such important, brief scenes delivered?
