How can you not love Chaotica? Pure cheese.

The DS9 holo episodes aren't terrible but I think all the Trek holo shows are a bit meh.

That's exactly why I don't like him. Sure, he's kind of funny at first, but after listening to him rant and rave for 5 minutes I just want him to shut up.

There are some great reasons to love Bride of Chaotica.. so camp and so ravishing all at the same time.


An EXCELLENT view of the crystal spiderpin on the right side of her hairdo!

I loved Bride of Chaotica, everything about it including the Doctor claiming his performance as the President of Earth was "Unimpeachable". (This during Clinton's impreachment hearings.)

But what I loved most of all, was watching Janeway's face as she walked down that hallway, reading the parameters of her costume while Paris was telling her to "unleash her pheremones."

"I BEG your pardon!"

Re: Does It Get Better???

I just rewatched "Counterpoint" and remembered they had a Betazoid on board called Ensign Jarot who basically would have been invaluable to Voyager's mission. Another example of a Voyager writer throwing in a random line or character and having it make the show make less sense. Also they never mentioned Lt. Stadi as a telepath on board, not to mention the random Vulcans who appear later on. Ah continuity, it really isn't that hard to maintain Voyager writers!

Lt Stadie was killed during the pilot, she "was" the pilot. Tom got her job.

Right, but she should have at least been listed on the telepath casualty report shown to the inspectors. It's a continuity error to omit her.

I so wish it had been the other way around.

then she would have paired off with Kim or Chuckles.

Or remained another sexless drone with folded legs for the next seven years.

But think of the subtext!

Stadie and Janeway, Stadie and B'Elanna, Stadie and both Delaney sisters and Harry gets nothing.. what a wonderful world it would have been.

Re: Does It Get Better???

If Pussy Galore is the standard for telling repressed ignorant god fearing torch and pitchfork shaking people that lesbians exist through veiled code then it's probable that Stadi was was a lesbian...

PARIS: Oh, that wasn't a compliment. Until today I always considered your people warm and sensual.
STADI: I can be warm and sensual.
PARIS: Just not to me.
vs.

You can turn off the charm. I'm immune.

Bride of Chaotica: Fun at first, but the whole "cheesy sci fi" element got old kind of fast. It had its funny moments to be sure, but after awhile I just wanted it to end. Not really my kind of Star Trek episode, but I guess it was okay for what it was trying to be.
4/10
I think it's geared more toward my generation and older.
Those of us that grew up on the campy sci-fi of Flash Gordon and Buck Rodgers. The irony is "Bride" feels like an TOS episode.

Bliss: Another great Voyager offering. An interesting science fiction concept (a creature that deceives people by showing them their hearts desires), a great guest star, and being the huge 7 of 9 fan that I am I loved her role in this episode.
7/10

Re: Does It Get Better???

Just one more fricking reason that this show should have been called Odyssey.

In myth, Odysseus heard that the Sirens call was hot. Super sexy. You know like an unbelievable high. Down side is that the sirens call makes you want to crash your ship on the rocks by their home so that you can get it on with these sexy b'tches. So when approaching their territory, Odyssesus had his crew tie him to the mast so that he couldn't get out and do the ship some harm, and had his crew muffle their ears by stuffing them with cabbage so that they couldn't hear the sirens call and do the ship harm either.

So Odyssesus got off. probably the best "sex" of his life, and his poor crew just had a usual shitty day at work... AND their ear canals reeked of cabbage for probably the next month.

What an ass.

They should have taken turns being tied to the mast and gone backwards and forwards zigzagging past the Sirens home until the sirens figured out that their music was being stolen and they should just shut the fuck up because they were being used by assholes who didn't believe that their intellectual property deserved reimbursement for use.

Homer beat Napster to the punch by 3000 years.

Re: Does It Get Better???

Haha, good call. The premise of Bliss seemed familiar, I just couldn't remember from where.

Also, I just did some calculations and discovered that so far season 5 episodes have an average score of 6.7. That's even higher than season 4 ended up being! Let's hope that the good episodes continue.

I always thought of "Moby Dick' meets "Pinocchio" myself.

...or is it "Jona and the Whale"??
