I watched Emissary last night (DS9's first episode)
"The Naked Time"
"Journey to Babel" season 2 TOS
"Amok Time" (TOS)
ENT - First Flight
Watched Past Tense part two.
There's an awesome pop culture reference. When Webb logs onto the net, his transmission is terminated. Look at the font of the word Terminated. It's the same as the Terminator 2 movie poster, red with white
Dunno about the TV series, but I'm watching The Undiscovered Country just now
Watched Past Prologue Last night. Great episode.
Watching "Yesterday's Enterprise" right now.
A good episode, but with a few annoying things, such as:
1. Changing "captain's log" to "military log" is one thing, but changing "stardate" to "combat date" is kind of a silly overreach to make the point.
2. When the Enterprise D officers pull Lt. Castille from the rubble of his bridge, the first thing they do is shine a bright light in his eyes? Really?
What you leave behind DS9
"Where Silence Has Lease", TNG -- for the first time. I thought it would turn out to be a SF mystery, but it was another "The Enterprise is harassed by a superior godlike being until Picard gives it a stern talking-to" show. Not that I mind those -- they can be my favorite -- but I was interested in the potential astrophysics topic.
Just watched TOS-R "Let This be Your Last Battlefield" on local tv. They cut the whole Beal-Locai chase scene. Morons.
A few points:
With the whole "Sharon is in the southern most part of the galaxy". Is this meant to be a crack at racist people from the South? And isn't the southern part (below the galactic disk) of the galaxy mostly empty?
With Sharon seeming to be not too far from Arianis. A Federation planet with over a billion inhabitants. How come no Federation ships have visited there? They knew it was there and knew it's name.
With no detected chemical/biological/radialogical weapons release detected. Wouldn't Sharon make a good planet for colonization; ready-made with transportation and modern services infrastructure in place. Aside from some decaying bodies and damaged buildings.
Note for future starship captains: When a couple of strange aliens lock your ship on course for a unknown planet. Shutdown your engines and kill main power. Then lure them into a room and gas them. Throwing them out the airlock is optional. But recommended.
The Naked Time (TOS).
"The Trouble with Tribbles", "More Tribbles, More Troubles" (TAS) and "Trials and Tribble-ations".
TNG "The Best of Both Worlds, Part I & II" a couple of nights ago. Rounded out with "Family" right now.
Reminds me of happier days when I first saw these.
"Patterns of Force" (TOS).
