A lot of good, Human Drama in this one.
"No. It's not linear."
TNG "The Best of Both Worlds" Part II and "Family" (both good)
TAS: The Magicks of Megas-Tu streamed on Netflix.
just finished enterprise. Much better than i remember.
Enterprise: Cant remember the exact episode but
Its the episode where Malcom leaves his communicator on an alien planet and they have to go back for it
"Broken Bow, Parts I and II" - ENT
TOS-r: The Return of the Archons
Again. Gee, I love this one. A good-sized cast with the stars, the usual bridge support, at least 7 speaking guest and secondary roles, and what looks to be at least 10 background extras and stunt people in the backlot scenes. Those extras are effectively used in the exteriors. Nearly every time there's a closeup, 2 or more extras are moving like zombies in the background, making the city seem full of people.
And then there's Festival. It's brief on screen, and just pure chaos. Men and women lustfully pursuing each other, a woman even jumps on Kirk. I love those townspeople, they're used so well.
I always thought the almost artificial, wax-like sheen used on the faces of some of Landru's citizens made the episode even creepier. They were living, biological humanoids but their eerie appearance and makeup made them seem less so. "Archons" doesn't get enough love from the fans. It has its seriously corny moments but it's quite the creepy and atmospheric episode.
I just love everything they put into those exterior scenes. There's a little blonde woman in black who shows up a few times, sometimes prominently in group shots. There's a good look at her reaching down to pick up a weapon when the Body is summoned. I'm always watching her. The crew worked hard to make those townfolk like somnambulists, it's amazing the society can sustain itself with everyone in a daze, but somehow they're able to clean the streets before the next Festival. And the use of the Vina music completely sells that we're in Weirdsville.
Metamorphosis (TOS Blu-ray)
I'm going to have a follow-up procedure on September 8. I'll have to be sure to watch a few more episodes in a dazed mental state and then post cryptic plot summaries here!
TAS: Once Upon A Planet, streamed on Netflix.
A well done sequel to Shore Leave.
"Flashback" - Star Trek: Voyager
Odd. They really fudged up the timeline of this episode compared to the film.
I know that "Flashback" takes place primarily in Tuvok's head. But it is still a pretty big goof.
And then there's Dmitri Valtane standing alive and well behind Captain Sulu at the end of Star Trek VI while Tuvok's memory virus has him dying during the battle in the Azure Nebula, which happened before the final clash at the Khitomer Peace Conference.
But we won't go there. I like that episode enough to learn not to nitpick it too much.
It wasn't bad. I think Mulgrew and Russ worked well together in this episode.
"The Chute" - Star Trek: Voyager
DS9 - Covenant

"The Swarm" - Star Trek: Voyager
