Devolved Worf in pure bloodlust rage chasing rodent-Picard and stoic Data.


That was the worst episode ever which means Vedek Winn is automatically Kai and you must go to the corner and recite 50 Hail Siskos

Funny, the only time they ever beamed a torpedo into another ship was once on Voyager. No one ever did it before or since. I never understood that.


You have to lower the shields in order to use the transporter. They usually try to avoid that.

Then again, they do seem to wire the shields directly into every console on the bridge and store their fireworks inside them.

NeoCortex42: klaatuwolf: The argument about whether Kirk or Picard was the better captain can be summed up in five words and one letter. Sisko punched Q in the face.

And Q never bothered the station again. If only Picard had realized how simple it was.


The Q character never made any sense. He's not all seeing, he's definitely all knowing. No omnipotent creature could possibly be constantly surprised at everything the puny humans do. Sisko recognized how poorly written the character was and just knocked him the fark out.

jmr61: Grew up watching the original series when it was on television in the '60s and have never stopped. Have never seen a second of any of the further generations and never will.

Don't f$ck with perfection.


*snort* "Perfection" meaning a jealous ex-lover stealing Kirk's body, planets of Nazis and mobsters and Romans, Kirk speechifying from an exact alien copy of the US Constitution on a pre-Industrial Revolution world, the "This is Halloween" planet, half of the planets they find being controlled by a supercomputer that Kirk shoots and leaves the planet in chaos, and "Spock's Brain"?

My favorite episode was the original (uncensored version) one where Troi got drunk, took all her clothes off, and got Wesley into the holodeck, where she proceeded to teach him all there was to know about zero-gravity sex and its effects on large breasts. All the other episodes sucked donkey ass.

/Yes, I know. That's the point.

that bosnian sniper: ...doesn't subspace communication and AI, something that has been a staple of the series since TOS, render starships and manned exploration obsolete?


Not really. You have to actually travel around and make contact with aliens and use diplomacy and shiat. You can't do that over a ham radio. And since even after all these years no one's been able to duplicate him, Data's the only real android with sentient AI (well he's dead but there's a spare). Although I guess they have sentient holograms now (The Doctor, not Tupac).

I hate it when the fantasy universe people start the bullshiat about star wars ships defeating star trek universe ships. It was a galaxy long ago and far away. They didn't even have hu-mans. As far as we know the ships could be microscopic from our perspective. Plus, none of the star wars farks could shoot worth a shiat. At all. And their shields are shiat. A lone fighter destroyed an entire space station for fark's sake. The empire's forces were quite easily resisted by vegetarian teddy bears with rope and rocks and shiat. And you don't think the enterprise could defeat the whatever the fark? Please. As for Vader, who cares. He would draw Q's interest immediately and Q would have that motherfarker pissed off and wearing tights on the holodeck in two shakes of a lamb's tail. And the other Darth thingamajigs would exhaust themselves wailing on Odo with their silly flashlights... while Odo sat there reading a book as he waited a few parsecs for them to get tired.

Charles_Nelson_Reilly: I also like Enterprise -- not every episode, but most. I like the story arcs. To each their own, but I've never understood the Enterprise hate.


The main thing is they amde a prequel to TOS set during a time when there was plenty of already-established canon for that time period, and they ignored it and made up their own. Especially with the NX having first contact with the Romulans (without any mention of the war and establishment of the Neutral Zone), and the entire Xindi arc, something so huge and important that it was never mentioned or remembered in later times.

The NX-Enterprise looking like an upside-down Akira-class ship didn't help, looking way too damn futuristic for a time when the most advanced Earth starship was the Daedalus-class explorer:

Cyno01: So, the shields of an executor class star destroyer could take 4.73854851×10^17 photon torpedoes, or the entire armament of 1.8954194 × 1015 Enterprise Ds. On the other hand, a galaxy class starship could take 621 turbolaser hits, basically 1/3 the firepower of the Executor.


You are forgetting the human element of Star Trek which states that you must stop and talk before you fire anything. This means the Empire would manipulate the crap out of them.

Magruda: ThatBillmanGuy: Magruda: ThatBillmanGuy: Also no worse than that one episode where a bunch of linguisticly retarded aliens decide the best way to communicate is to beam down to a planet with an invisible lightning monster and try to kill it with a knife while telling stories.

Was that the one where Picard finally figured out their language at the end after that alien died? God that was horrible.

Shaka, when the walls fell.

YES, I need a bucket after remembering that one.


I always noticed that in terms of stories, TOS always had Kirk saving the Federation from a Non-corporeal entity-type stories, TNG had Picard has to negotiate a peace-type stores, DS9 had Sisko's gotta lay the smack down on some alien assholes-type stories or we all dead, and then Voyager had Naomi Wildman is upset with Neelix that her mommy went on a shuttle mission-type stories... and... I didn't see much of Enterprise. Though the Mirror episode was awesome.

What the hell is wrong with Enterpise?

"A Night In Sickbay"

Is that the one where the dog got the aliens sick and Archer...sorry I fell asleep trying to remember the episode.


The dog peed on a tree, Archer refused to apologize, dog got sick and Archer spent all night in sickbay worrying over it, finally apologizes in a ridiculous ceremony. And Archer spent the entire episode in whiny biatchy holier-than-thou mode.

Seriously, with him making so many first contacts, it's a wonder Earth survived the hordes of pissed-off aliens.

Fine, I'll be the one to point out what has been pointed out in every thread that picture has ever been posted.

Those two balls on top of the bridge of the Star Destroyer are sheild generators.
Even small fighter ships in Star Wars have shields.

/end nerd rant


And while we're at it, they don't have lasers, they have blaster cannons. And that Star Destroyer is about 100 times the size of the Enterprise. It's like 8 Borg Cubes. It will fark their shiat up.

Well, mostly good, IMHO. I didn't care for the "Vic Fontaine" character in the last season....

The whole Dominion War arc was pretty cool, however.

/ and the Ferengi finally came into their own on that show, I always found the little greedy bastards amusing....

This^^

My favorite storyline involving the Ferengi, was when The ProphetsTM pulled a 'Ghost of Christmas Past/Present/Future' type attitude adjustment on the Grand Nagus, and managed to make things worse for the Ferengi. 


And yet somehow the Ferengi showed up on Voyager for an episode, and they were completely horrible.

Worse than the TNG Wargames episode?

where Westley saves the day

home-made warp drive, ftw


Somehow, yes. It was an interesting concept. They made the episode a sequel to the TNG episode where a pair of Ferengi get stranded on the other side of an unstable wormhole in the Delta Quadrant. It ended up being just another "Stupid greedy Ferengi" episode.

Knarf: Star Trek is good drama, but poor sci-fi. All the different series are pretty well equally silly, but they make for good entertainment.


Yes to the Sci fi part, but much of all of the series were pretty bad.

Knarf: The only reason people try to act like the original star trek series has any special merit over the newest series and movies is just because of nostalgia. NTTAWTT

Thats not entirely correct. What Abrams understood was that the original characters in the series were charismatic. You liked Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Scotty, even though they couldn't act their way out of a paper bag. TNG had one charismatic character- Picard, and later Worf got Ok. The rest were just not much. This was the problem with the rest of the following series, very, very few of the cast had any appeal, and the amt of charisma went from neutral in to negative, ending up with the Backula series were all the characters were simply unappealing. It really didn't matter to anyone if they lived or died because no one liked them. You could really make a chart of it.

The 2009 Star trek was the best thing that happened to the series since Wrath of Khan. Appealing characters, visually impressive, and fun to watch. Not some dull, stilted, pseudo-intellectual BS with contrived moral situations.

If you ask me, Farscape was much more of a spiritual successor to the original Star Trek series than any of the actual later Star Trek series. In many ways it followed the same formula.

I kind of see where you're coming from. I limed Vic Fontaine, but that whole Oceans Eleven episode was unnecessary in the middle of a FARKING WAR! Anyway, when I worked at the Experience, The guy who played Fontaine (damnit, im forgetting everyone's names today) wanted to have a gig where he'd play regularly in Quark's Bar and sing. But the stupid GM passed him up on that, as she did most things that would have added the whole "experience" part of the place that trekkies who came there would expect.

Not a terrible list, but I'd include Spock's meld with the horta as one of the goofiest moments, along with the entirety of the episode "Spock's Brain" and watching Shatner shout "I AM KIROK!"

Now, I understand the hate for Voyager, but I have to say that "Year of Hell" is one of the best stories in the ST Universe. The are many others, but that one was raw and awful and terrific.

From the list, I'd put the battle from "Amok Time" at #1, just for the background music.

I just started another re-watch of DS9, halfway through season one at the moment. Even in its first season, DS9 was not half bad. It doesn't even come close to inducing the pain of TNG season one or TOS season three.

Its farking ON asshole

DS9 was the greatest Trek ever.

Voyager sucked, yes; and Enterprise was even worse. But, DS9, that was the saving grace of the franchise.

Enterprise was farked by the writer strike Berman and Braga.... It should have been awesome.

When Manny Coto and Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens took over for the final season, they did the show people wanted to see from the beginning instead of the Space Nazis in Time! show that made people tune out after season 2.

/sorry, don't feel like farking with fans of Nu-Trek tonight. We just did that last week.


Never made it to the final season of Enterprise myself... they lost me early in season 2. Voyager lost me earlyish too. Clearly not a trekker, 'prolly not even a trekkie, but I'm a fan of the idea of Star Trek, and a number of TOS and TNG episodes, a few DS9's too. Not big on most of the movies, but mostly enjoyed Nu-Trek alt universe lens flary Abrams take.
