The Return of the Archons
ENT "Cease Fire"
First stirrings of the Federation.
Soval: "You're actions were not... overly meddlesome." [departs]
Shran: "I think he likes you, Pinkskin."
Archer: "I wouldn't go that far."
The Doomsday Machine.
"Who Mourns from Adonis?"
I never realized before how much it parallels the structure of "Space Seed": female historian is swept off her feet by charismatic, virile relic of Earth's distant past, etc. Except Carolyn Palamas remembers her duty more than poor, doomed Marla.
"By Inferno's Light". Love that episode. But then again, I love basically all of DS9.
Reunion (TNG) and Future Imperfect (TNG).
The Kir Shara
Shadows of P'Jem
The Corbomite Maneuver. "What am I? A doctor or a moon shuttle conductor? If I jumped everytime a light came on around here I'd end up talking to myself."
DS9 - Whispers
"Return To Tomorrow," TOS. Great fun!
Watched "The Apple" this morning, for probably the first time in years. I had forgotten that Yeoman Martha Landon called Chekov "Pav" for short--and took out two hostile natives with some cool jujitsu moves. Talk about channeling her inner Emma Peel . . . too bad we didn't see more of her.
TOS: The alternative Factor
"Dagger of the Mind" (TOS)
Just watched "I, Mudd" and "The Doomsday Machine."
Coming up next: "Catspaw."
Watched "Equinox" I and II yesterday. Those are some great episodes.
TAS: The Pirates of Orion
ENT: "The Communicator"
Interesting ideas and it has one or two good moments, but ultimately it's a misstep. WW2-style culture on a pre-warp planet. Technology falling into the hands of a less advanced people. Trying to minimalise the damage. So naturally consequences from earlier episodes being what they are, Archer & Reed are able to be rescued with the aid of an advanced Suliban stealth ship... they shouldn't really have either. Big fan of the potential around in the 22nd Century, when it's slightly less tainted by the TCW. Not one of its finest hours this.
