You get the Trek BBS Post of the Day Award for that one, Big Jake.

What I've always found funny about that is how DS9 managed to make a holosuite episode that was immeasurably better than anything TNG put out. "Hollow Pursuits" had its moments, but most of the holodeck episodes sucked.

Are the holodeck episodes really that much worse than "Roman Planet" or "Gangster Planet" or "Western Planet" from TOS?

TOS: I've got nothing so give me seasons 4 and 5.

TNG: Retain the sense of exploration that was prevalent in seasons 1 and 2. The writing and acting of these seasons may not have been of the best quality but they're still my favorite seasons of the show because of that sense of exploration.

DS9: End the Dominion war in season six and spend season 7 on reconstruction.

VOY: Maintain more of a sense of continuity between episodes. Show how the characters evolved and the consequences of their interactions with Delta quadrant species.

ENT: Remove UPN from the equation and allow the show to develop as Berman and Braga originally had in mind.

They basically were TNG's versions of those episodes, but done with less excuse (TNG had big enough budgets that it didn't need to go there) and an arguably lamer pretext (holodeck malfunctions were such a regularity that it was amazing they were allowed within ten parsecs of a starship).

Basically, indeed (yes) and definitely (yes).

Re: If you could make ONE change to each trek series...

Some more changes I would make:

TOS - Replace Ensign Chekov as Navigator with Ensign Ilia.

TNG - Replace Doctor Pulsaki permanently with Doctor Selar.

DS9 - Either keep Opaka on the series for a little longer, or have her return whenever Sisko had an Orb experience / Prophet encounter.

VOY - (Totally agree with making it serialised and having repercussions for the ship/crew, so taking that as a given...) Kill Chakotay off and have Tuvok become the new XO, with Ayala taking over at Security.

ENT - Don't hire Scott Bakula.

Yes to both of those ideas! Or perhaps make her death a mystery in an early or mid-season episode (make it a real death), keep bringing her back in visions, then in a later season episode reveal that Winn killed her.

Opaka is dead? I believe she's still alive in the Gamma Quadrant. On the other hand, I would have welcomed a more robust recurring role.

Sorry, yes - poor choice of words. Though she might as well be dead. She's stuck on that planet with those annoying people. If she leaves, she dies.

While we're at it, can we do something about BeLanna's hair?
