Re: Unpopular Trek Opinions — What Are Yours?

Star Trek never ever done women properly. Where were the Carrie Bradshaw's in Star Trek? Major Kira? Captain Janeway???

Name one woman in Star Trek who was obsessed with shoes?

You might be able to make an argument for Lwaxana Troi because she was obsessed with men, but I think in season 4's Half A Life they really ruined her character by giving her so much depth and feeling.

Even the guest stars were ridiculous - K'Ehleyr and Shelby etc.

I couldn't agree with you more.

My unpopular opinion--I liked Worf, but I hated the episodes that tried to deal with Klingons as a whole. I hated the brother episodes, and I hated the father episodes.

Re: Unpopular Trek Opinions — What Are Yours?

Hoshi Sato was cute...but she wasn't 'stop-all-engines-cease-fire' hot....

Actually, if Yun-jin Kim was in the role, we'd have something to discuss....(However, Kim wouldn't/shouldn't be a mere 'Ensign;' maybe Lt. Commander...)

I wouldn't mind serving under her, for that matter...

Or over...

Or behind.....





Alright, TMI....

Mmmm, yeah, it's a well known fact that best tastes are those artificially produced... I feel this every time when I feel that beautifully fake taste of a strawberry milkshake or pudding that makes me feel like I'm chewing a gum... I wonder why anyone would ever want to eat those horrible juicy, sweet, fresh real strawberries.

You don't work in a publicity department of a food corporation by any chance?

Re: Unpopular Trek Opinions — What Are Yours?

Ok, here goes:

1. The 2 Star Trek actresses I'd LEAST like to have sex with are Jolene Blalock and Jeri Ryan.
2. Star Trek-TMP was the GREATEST Star Trek movie, EVER!!!
3. Star Trek-TOS Season 3 was the best of the 3 seasons, and Fred Frieberger is a Genius!!
4. The Devil In The Dark was the WORST Star Trek-TOS episode.
5. Star Trek 09 had the GREATEST script and story of ANY Star Trek movie.
6. I don't think Time Travel is used ENOUGH in Star Trek.
7. I think Jonathan Frakes looked better cleanshaven.
8. Spock's Brain is the GREATEST TOS episode.
9. I liked Deanna Troi's hairdo in TNG Season 1.
10. I though Star Trek 2-The Wrath of Khan sucked Donkey Balls!!
11. Star Trek 3-The Search For Spock is the best of the first six movies!
12. Christopher Plummer was the worst Klingon, EVER!!
13. John Colicos is the second worst Klingon, EVER!!
14. The Romulans were used TOO much.
15. The Klingons weren't used ENOUGH.
16. The Borg are the WORST Star Trek villains of ALL time!
17. Neelix and Nog are both BRILLIANT characters that weren't used ENOUGH!
18. Canon is totally IRRELIVANT!
19. Star Trek-TAS is the GREATEST of all the series!!
20. Picard should have been played as an ENGLISHMAN with a FRENCH accent!!

HE, HE

I was super pissed off when Jadzia Dax died and I didn't warm up or like the new, younger Dax.

You know, I'm only with you halfway here. I hated that Jadzia was killed off. But what REALLY cheesed me off was that they replaced her with somebody that almost, almost, makes me wish she had never been there at all.

What can I say? I loved Jadzia, but REALLY loved Ezri.

Re: Unpopular Trek Opinions — What Are Yours?

How about these:

1. The nuEnterprise design from Star Trek 09 is the GREATEST ever!!
2. The Enterprise E is the WORST design ever!
3. I wasn't bothered at all in Star Trek 09 when Vulcan blew up, Amanda died and we found out Spock and Uhura were doing each other, or that Engineering looked like a water treatment plant.
4. Nero was the GREATEST Star Trek villain EVER!
5. Shinzon was the NEXT best villain EVER!
6. I thought that the nuEnterprise's bridge looking like an Ipod store was a brilliant example of set design.
7. Star Trek 09 didn't have ENOUGH lens flares.
8. Centaurian Slugs from Star Trek 09 were obviously NOT inspired by Ceti Eels from Star Trek 2.
9. It didn't bother me AT ALL that Harry Kim was never promoted in the entire run of Voyager.
10. The character of Seven of Nine was obviously added due to the new dramatic possibilities the character had, NOT her smoking hot body.
11. It doesn't bother me AT ALL that Capt. Kirk's shirt gets ripped whenever he gets in a fight.
12. Enterprise does NOT create any continuity problems.
13. Ferengi are NOT AT ALL annoying.
14. It doesn't bother me that most food shown in TOS looked like bread soaked in food dye...oh, wait...it was!
15. TOS was not sexist AT ALL!
16. I really missed Tasha Yar after they killed her off.
17. I would've missed Wesley if they killed him off, too!
18. DS9 was obviously NOT inspired by Babylon 5.
19. I would have preferred to see Jack Lord play Capt. Kirk.
20. Star Trek-TMP did NOT utilize elements of The Changling, The Doomsday Machine or The Immunity Syndrome!

Ho, Ho

^Dude, I'm from the USA. What led you to think I was a Brit? Not that there's anything wrong with that!
