Sulu the swordsman.
The Next Generation: "Angel One"
Haven't watched this underappeciated gem in a long time, but it was most enjoyable!
The Next Generation: Conundrum
Worf frowns at picard.
"Meridian" - DS9
ENT: Chosen Realm
Archer battles religious fanatics who have never seen a transporter.
Still a small miracle that the ruler of the bandits managed to read a big chunk of Archer's personal log without ever bumping into any mention of the transporter.
Alien: Am I going to die?
Phlox: I'm doing everything I can.
And that means zip.
Another one that goes through walls but not through the floor...
It's a poorly written line, but John Billingsley makes it work through performance. On paper, it can read as if Phlox might be doing everything he can to make certain the guy dies.
True, but I didn't see it until you mentioned it. I guess it's all in the delivery.
All viewpoints are well written and discussed. A most enjoyable thought provoking episode.
TOS: Spectre of the Gun
I've watched this I don't know how many times since first seeing it on NBC, but there are always things to learn about it.
Actor Gregg Palmer is the mustached cowboy who gets shot by Morgan Earp. Notice how he makes sure we get a good look at his face before he hits the ground.
Palmer had been in many movie and tv westerns, but one series in particular connects to this episode.
On Hugh O'Brian's popular The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, he appears as Tom McClowery in what appears to be a 4-episode arc in 1961, ending with "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral". In the same episode, John Anderson (TNG: The Survivors) played Virgil Earp.
I find it a little troubling that the "bad guy" (Doctor Russel) is the one that saves the day and still gets bad mouthed by the "good guy" (Crusher) who would have done nothing. I think you can't make scientific progress without people like worf willing to take a chance once in a while. Beverly wouldn't let Worf take the chance even after being told that his only alternative was death according to his culture. That's fanaticism!
Plus I don't care if he only peeks after the hand is over, (you're not supposed to see the cards unless you pay for it), Geordi is a cheat.
"Defiant" - DS9
The second and last Thomas Riker episode...
Balance of Terror
Mark Lenard as a Romulan.
Silent Enemy (ENT Blu-ray)
