Future Tense - ENT

I found myself wishing that the derelict ship from the future would even briefly morph into a 60s style british blue police box.

Re: Last Star Trek Episode You Watched

VOY: "Prime Factors"

Some neat ideas but not all that good overall. I'm glad the aliens, originally intended to be recurring, were written out of the show. And I kind of wish just once while the leader was touching Janeway she'd slap him upside his head. Ah, the rigors of command, I suppose.

VOY: "Heroes and Demons"

I see this one get a bad rap in some reviews (mainly Jammer's Reviews and GateWorld, I guess, but the former typically hates the series anyway and the latter... well, Darren and I don't seem to see eye to eye often on episodes) but dammit, I liked it. I think this is an episode I must have seen countless times during UPN's old "Five Flights A Week" stint because a lot of it came back to me too.

VOY: "State of Flux"

Now this was a strong early showing. Intrigue abound, Martha Hackett playing Seska terrifically, Chakotay blinded, Tuvok guided, Janeway disturbed, Kazon being bastards. Good episode. At the end when Seska gets away I wanted to reach through the screen and pull her back to justice -- that tells me I connected with the show emotionally.

VOY: "Cathexis"

Another episode I was kind of dreading as I've read a lot of harsh comments about it since those bygone days I watched the series. There are some fair points -- it's plodding, it's overly technical (something of a recurring issue for the show) and it lacks the emotional punch intended. I still enjoyed it though. The lighting was very effective, adding a layer of tension to the proceedings that might have been lost by an only passable script. Janeway's Holonovel is introduced here and I'm left slightly puzzled as to why the woman would want to pretend to be the matron for a couple of children when she's already the full-time matron of 148 crewmembers.

VOY: "Faces"

Some really memorable work from Roxanne Dawson here. The episode was at its best toward the end when the two B'Elannas had to see past their differences; the highlight scene was the weakened human B'Elanna fainting (and in a way that seemed to indicate she was partly fainting from seeing her other self) and the Klingon B'Elanna wasting no time just slumping her on her back and getting out of there. It was nice to see the Vidiians again -- it seems I like them now as an adult every bit as much as I did when I was a kid. Tough rocks for Durst, dying the episode after he was introduced.

VOY: "Jetrel"

Knockout performances from Ethan Phillips and James Sloyan delivered this episode well above the cut, even if its resolution didn't move me as much as it probably should have. There are several scenes between Neelix and Jetrel that pulled me in almost as much as those in the oft-compared "Duet" from DS9's first season. Jetrel's true motive was a fun twist and one I'd long since forgotten. The only real downside to this episode was Neelix's dream, something which shot for dark and foreboding but instead came across s thoroughly silly. Even Jennifer Lien's turn as Palaxia didn't save it.

VOY: "Learning Curve"

I remembered the infamous cheese going into the episode but I still burst into laughter when B'Elanna had it raced to sickbay. I think the joke should have been played up a bit more; something like that needs not be low-key. Anyway, the core of the episode -- Tuvok's training of the Maquis misfits -- is mostly rather by-the-books television. It works despite the typicality because Tim Russ really sells it. I was also rather entertained by Chakotay's "Maquis way" of setting one of them straight. I wish we got to learn more about the pasts of more than just him, though.

And with that I've finished the first season. On my way to the first full-length season shortly!

The ABC version of TMP. Not an episode, I know, but still Star Trek.
