    I know, most people would've been horny in that scene.
    I know what James T. Kirk would've done =D

    I like the Tendi/Boilmer pairing. They would make a fun couple

    Well whoever Tendi ends up with, I'm sure she's a demon in the sack...

    Martok as an interactive game program was entertaining. The hunt with the alien was also kinda fun, though the selfie stick was bordering on too ridiculous even for LD. :lol:

    A fun and breezy 7. Nothing spectacular for this series but nothing bad.

    Stay classy, guys. Tendi might be fictitious, but we don't need a lewd tone like that around here.

    I dunno. I feel like it's important to break stereotype here by not having Tendi be like that. Part of the appeal of her as a character is she's nothing like any of the other Orion women we've met.

    There's a good argument that Tendi is probably someone who was more stereotypical but created the "Tendi persona" to get away from it.

    I would guess that too. She acted like a stereotypical Orion when she and Mariner visited the Orion colony in S2. What did they call her “Mistress of the Winter Night” or something like that.

    Cetacean Ops is the most inspired Trek chorus there ever was. A full episode from its perspective would knock it out of the park into lunar orbit.

    I thought this one was substantially better than the premier. Pretty enjoyable all the way around.

    I didn't even mention how happy I was to see the two dolphins again! It didn't get a laugh out of me because it happened so quickly, but I found their complaints about his diving in with dirty shoes hilarious.

    Pretty fun episode, laughed a lot. Only giving it an 8 because both plots are kind of retreats of stuff the series already covered in the past, though.

    Loved the alien culture (with a government with a system of checks and balances) and the ferengi Klingon RPG.

    After thinking about it, I'm disappointed that I jumped to shipping Boimler and Tendi. We are shown a strong friendship where one of them sees the other in need and is supportive. We know the co-ed conditions of the lower deckers, there is physical contact between the two but there is nothing sexual or romantic going on in any of their scenes together. Just two friends being friends. I didn't need to post this but it will remain a learning moment for me.

    My daughter likes to watch it with us on Friday nights so I need to tread carefully.

    That was a fun way to do a Martok cameo. Here’s hoping we still get the real deal.

    the bit with Kranch and Freeman was great. So was Boimler singing Bajoran dirges with Shax.

    “Their leader is either an ancient volcano or a psychic baby…”

    I thought the Ransom/Mariner stuff was weak though. Seemed like a stretch that he would go that far out of his element just to try teaching Mariner a lesson or to trick her into screwing up.

    7/10 for me.
