Wyalt Derp: Mugato: There should be a "worst of" list too.

Any episode with Q or Troi's mother.


Tapestry.
Also, All Good Things...worked really well as a finale, considering the show didn't really have a running plot.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: go watch Measure of a Man again.

fark, go watch all of Star Trek pre-DS9 again.


Measure of a Man is not applicable at all. No one is denying Hugh's sentience. We're just saying its not inviolable.

Picard wasn't earning royalties from Star Trek and X-Men that he could spend on plastic surgery

Q episodes aren't bad, but they are wildly inconsistent. "Tapestry" is quite good (though one could argue that it wasn't really Q at all, and it was all Picard's near-death hallucination).

/Of course, John de Lancie's Discord is more malevolent than Q ever was, despite being in a kids' cartoon.

Which is totally antipathetic to everything Star Trek stood for at the time.

Otherwise, In the Pale Moonlight wouldn't have been such a morality play.
 
2012-09-29 06:44:21 PM  

The All-Powerful Atheismo: Yes, like those races from that DS9 knockoff show.


You mean the one that was infinitely superior? Of all the Trek series, I'm still trying to figure out how DS9 made it into production. They had a few good episodes, but most of the time it was like watching people in the hotel cafeteria at a Star Trek convention.

Maybe, but the threat presented by the Borg was the type of threat which would make you have to seriously think about the inviolability of what Star Trek stood for.

True. But I, Hugh could have been that good. And it wasn't.

Thanks for reminding me: "Future Imperfect" would look good on the list as the mind-fark episode to replace Phantasms.

Of course, which was the point of the episode, and the point being that they came that close to sacrificing their morals, but in the end did the right thing.

What about the one with all of the drunken space micks?

Not quite as offensive as the Space Africans.

But close.

I don't know, I think the Space Jews/Ferengi were also pretty bad.

I always viewed them as Saudis.

Racist.


I took that mostly from the wealth and the way they treat their women. Plus Saudis have fangs.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: Mugato:
I think the Borg were screwed up starting with "I, Borg". Picard could have destroyed them for good and he and even Guinen decided not to. That was just bad writing and Picard should have been court martial-ed.

What the hell is wrong with you?


Besides the bizarre auto-correct, what? Picard could have destroyed the Borg and saved billions of lives but decided not to because he fell in love with one drone. And that drone wasn't even Seven of Nine.

No, he was a victim, like a zombie in a George Romero movie. That doesn't make him part of a race.

Ok. Fine. Since nobody is taking my bait, I will chime in with my real answers.

My favorite TNG episode of all time was I, Borg. They showed a side of the Borg that was almost human, albeit quite naive. For several years, I would participate in sims on the Compuserve Star Trek forum, using the screen name HughBorg. I would even go so far as to say that Hugh is in my top five favorite Star Trek characters.

Yeah, and Picard not uploading Hugh with the paradox algorithm that would have destroyed the Collective was a treasonous offense.

No. It was compassion. Locutus was still a very big part of Picard when dealing with Hugh. He knew what it was like. He had experienced assimilation and the hive mind. And although they were a notoriously dangerous race of people, they were still that- a race of people. Destroying an entire civilization was against everything Picard ever stood for.

The Borg aren't a race in any definition of the word. If Picard cared anything about Hugh, he would have de-assimilated him like Janeway did Seven of Nine. Or implanted the virus and saved billions of lives. Picard sucks. Sisko on the other hand got shiat done.

I had to look up the scene I was thinking of. It's when Keiko is initially pregnant and O'Brien informs Worf. Worf tells them that he'll be away from the station when she gives birth.
"Far away. Visiting my parents. On Earth."

Sisko was a fighter. Picard was a diplomat. That's like comparing apples to oranges.

And yes, the Borg were a race, or a species, or whatever you want to call them. The bottom line is that they were an intelligent life form. Killing them would have been immoral, even if they were evil.

Yes, but how many of them, as drones, still identified with their original race? None. "We are the Borg", not "We are a bunch of Klingons, Humans, Bolians, etc. that have been assimilated..."

The fact remains that even if they did not choose to be, they were all Borg and they made up a unique collective of people. That is a race.

you're farking fired. From this thread.


Nah, Darmok was a good concept but a very poor execution. The idea of stories as a basis of language is ridiculous. If you don't know the stories, you can't convey a new story, and it's still made up of basic words. It just doesn't work.
