"Power Play" - TNG
VOY - Endgame
The ending with the nearest aperture leading to the Delta Quadrant, how the ship ended up "right where we expected to be" (wtf?) and Voyager ending up inside the Sphere... was so badly put together it's no wonder I had no idea what was going on the first time I saw it. Terrible editing and two minutes less of Chakotay and 7 could have been put at the end where it badly needed it.
Krige though was once again excellent as the Queen, a welcome return. Decent finale, but nowhere near as good as AGT and WYLB
Is There in Truth No Beauty? (TOS)
TOS-r: Charlie X
If you've never seen Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train, watch it and marvel how much Robert Walker, Jr. looks like his father (who died at 32).
TOS - "Shore Leave"
TAS - "Once Upon A Planet"
Plato's Stepchildren (TOS). What an embarrassing episode. :/
Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan
TOS-r: The Man Trap
"She's not Nancybones."
There are only two episodes of TOS that I consider "embarrassing", "And the Children Shall Lead" and "Plato's Stepchildren".
"Redemption II" - NextGen HD
This is just dumb as fuck from the non-sense tachyon web to Sela. Just a miserable conclusion to what was a moderately interesting first part.
"Darmok" - NextGen HD
I appreciate what they were trying to accomplish here, but I find the episode tedious.
Star Trek Into Darkness on EPIX. Still an incredibly fun movie to watch.
”Bread and Circuses” - TOS Remastered
You'd think that Scotty could track them once Kirk made the communicator call. And beam the three of them up once they were alone in their cell.
Sort of like when they tracked Plasas and beamed him away without a communicator lock.
TOS-r: Balance of Terror
"Silicon Avatar" - NextGen HD
I really like this one. One of the better fifth season outings. Though I get the feeling Data is "sticking it" to Dr. Mar at the end of the episode.
TOS: PARADISE SYNDROME
I cannot help but sympathize with Salish. Kirk/Kirok is the usurper ... taking everything away from this poor man - his title, his status ... his woman!!! And it's not like any of this is going to go unnoticed by the rest of the tribe. This is Humiliations Galore, for Salish. And when he finally stalks Kirok with a knife and draws blood, I hate to say it, but I'm siding with Salish! And the real tragedy, of course, is this is all just a really big misunderstanding. Shatner seems to be enjoying himself a little too much, though, when he's kissing up the actress playing Miramanee. She doesn't seem to be digging it, but she took it like a champ, though ...
"The Game" - NextGen HD
Ugh! Pretty much sums it up.
TNG: The Child
Overall, I liked it. There were some clunky bits and the look is very 80s, but some excellent acting, the nice introduction to Pulaski, and a proper Sci Fi/Trek story saved it.
TOS-r: Shore Leave
Recent viewings have me sometimes wondering if the real Ruth may be dead; Kirk seems more baffled by her presence than Finnegan's.
