VOYAGER: "Basics"

... Why would "they" kill off Souder and Seska?

Doesn't make a lot of sense. Unless they were afraid their coolness would affect that of Seven of Nine's, whom they were already starting to come up with as the answer to all of VOYAGER's hopes and prayers ... can't have too many "S" names in one show, I guess.

Agree, those two were Voyagers 2 best characters (and actors).

The film The Undiscovered Country (very good although it was annoying how obvious who the villains were)

TOS-r: The Return of the Archons

I suppose the religious symbolism is part of what keeps drawing me to it.

Plus, it's just a creepy and rather cool episode. Atmospheric and with the right mix of camp and menace. The Landru story has always been a sentimental family favorite for me and apparently Roddenberry himself once listed it as one of his favorite episodes from the Original Series.

I think Return of the Archons is a highly underrated episode.

TOS-r: A Taste of Armageddon

"Archons" and this are my two favorite planet stories. Both establish templates for the many planet stories to follow which turn events in both these episodes into overused cliches. Latecomers to Trek are often unable to appreciate these two shows because they don't realize that they were the first of their types.

"Armageddon" is an exciting action adventure filmed entirely on the soundstage with no location work. It keeps the viewer entertained, while wrapping everything in a good anti-war message.

Shatner looks incredibly trim and fit here, with several action moments, including a well choreographed fight against two stuntmen, doing it all himself with no double.

James Doohan gets some of his best scenes in the series, going nose to nose against Ambassador Fox, especially when he flatly refuses to follow given orders.

And Miko Mayama has her own tough woman moments as Yeoman Tamura. It's too bad they never brought her back trapped with Sulu in a danger situation, those two planning an escape could be something.

Re: Last Star Trek Episode You Watched

I love TOS Season 1. Always have. It's hard to find a Season 1 episode that you don't like, and even the weakest and stupidest ones have their inherent charms and little redeeming factors.
