NeoCortex42: And the movie Generations. They dropped the "emotion chip" plot device after that.


You're kidding, right? First Contact mentioned it a couple of times and it made the whole premise of Data being "converted" by the Borg Queen almost believable.
Generations
First Contact
Insurrection
Nemesis

Picard has got to be the most farked up person in the galaxy:

Assimilated by the Borg . . .

Tortured by the Cardasians . . .

Forced to live an entire life as some one else (but he does get a nice flute out of it).

How the hell does anyone live through that and still have the ability to command (and like a farkin' boss, at that).


/ mighty balls of dilithium, one supposes.
/ once had two of my six vanity bar lights go out . . .
/ refused to replace them just so I could say "THERE ARE FOUR LIGHTS" every morning.

All I want to say is TNG battle scenes SUCKED for the most part. Watch that battle scene from Yesterday's Enterprise.... "Let's fire a 2 second phaser shot and then talk about it for 20 seconds... Then change course again (ignoring that they never actually MOVED or pointed the ship around 148 degrees, etc...) and fire another 2 second shot... At least 2:28 in that video looked like a reasonable salvo.

Bhruic: Picard 20 years ago / Picard "aged" 20 years in the future / Patrick Stewart as he appears now

[www.freeimagehosting.net image 700x284]


That middle shot was not 20 years. It was more like 30-40 (and in a HARSH UV environment) from the Inner Light.

24th century balls would be made of carbon neutronium. Duh. :)

And Chekov and Tom Paris were whipped way more than Picard.


As for the lifetime lived in his mind from that probe and then being able to command... That's the much-lamented, over-used "Magic Reset Button" that was pushed at the end of every episode right after the word "Engage" was spoken.

My dad was a Trekkie when it aired in the '60s (when he was 8-11). I became a Trekkie from 4 when TNG premiered, and I thought Worf was BADASS!

Now...

...
...

...everytime I see "The Inner Light" I bawl like a baby when Picard stares at nothing and plays that flute/recorder/thingy. He had the perfect life, just so a civilization could tell him, "Hey! You're one of us, and you know it!", without prejudice of who'd find it or what they'd do with it - and they get the best example of humanity at that time has always hit the philosophy chord in me hard.

/Mindfark: Is he playing it for the perfect memories he now has, or the perfect life that he has lost?

addy2: "Congratulations, you are fully dilated to ten centimeters. You may now give birth."

Best line of the series.


The best line came shortly after that.

"I will now smack the child to induce breathing."

It's the one episode that didn't get made that probably would had been my favorite.

They were going to adapt a BOLO story and bring those aircraft carrier sized tanks into the Star Trek universe.

I just liked it for watching Troi sucking a stogie. Sucking.

I would vote for any episode that squeezed Ashley Judd's hot ass into a jumpsuit. Also, anything with Moriarty on the holodeck.

NeoCortex42: Mr. Potatoass: [3.bp.blogspot.com image 400x305]

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

Not quite as offensive as the Space Africans.

But close.


Depends on your point of view. As a drunken land mick that episode, and the Voyager Haven episodes, resulted in a lot of offended rage / embarrasment.
Which thankfully resulted in a lot of "coping".

/On my third can of "coping" as we speak.
//Also, Best of Both Worlds is the #1 Trek episode, and All Good Things was probably the most satisfying resolution to a TV series I've ever seen.

God yes he did. The one with the implanted prison sentence is a great episode.

ThereAreFourLights: I'm a fan of the list. I also think Time's Arrow would have made a really cool movie if they'd developed it a little more. Just started re-watching the whole series for about the 500th time, with my Nitpicker's Guide in hand.

/[i45.tinypic.com image 400x299]


the Nitpickers Guide is an interesting read, I think the one where they point out the security foces having a stadning order of "follow the captain's orders to remove people from the bridge unless something good is on the viewscreen".

Night terrors ought to be up there.

And however good or bad an episode, life wouldn't be the same if Worf had never said 'I am NOT a merry man!'.

That is all.

Ah, brings me back to my teen years...how I wanted that woman. Troi that is...though truth be told might have fapped to Crusher too...

I remember fapping to Troi a bit in my preteen/early teens. The formfitting outfits and cleavage was more than enough to get my already raging hormones flowing.


Bev Crusher was my weakness. Redhead, graceful, big caboose, sexy, breathy voice...hoo ahh.

I remember circa 1992 when I first discovered newsgroups that there were some pretty saucy Crusher and Troi slashfic stories circulating on the Usenets. Same goes for a Troi/Wesley story or two (and a Beverly/Wesley story, IIRC).

My top 5 episodes:

5) Masks and Darmok tie for 5th place, and here is why: For one, these are two episodes that really delve into what most hard science fiction authors hate about Trek: It doesn't take any chances. Masks asked the question, "What if a completely alien technology took over the Enterprise and they had to survive just using the meat inside their heads?" You had an ancient city, buried inside a comet (probably for a good reason), which takes over the technology on the Enterprise (including the android) and converts it into a living holodeck representation of the city's culture and history. It did give Spiner the chance to chew up scenery but it also gave a very different story than usual. Darmok did what another poster already said - got rid of those pesky universal translator plot devices to show exactly how difficult it would be to communicate with aliens if all translational problems weren't instantly surmounted (see Babel Fish). The technology translated the metaphor but not the meaning, which was interesting.

4) The Nth Degree - I always loved the Barclay character concept: A complete social retard getting through Starfleet, AND managing to get posted to the flagship, who used the holodeck that 99.9999% of us would have used it for? What's not to love about him? Plus Schultz made it work. Add in Barclay suddenly getting godlike intellect and it just went off into left field, which was glorious. Plus, had he pressed it a bit more, he probably could have bedded Troi.

3) Inner Light - Only because it managed to be a Trek story without getting all technobabbly. A story which, as the writers said in many of the DVD commentaries, was about the people, not the sci-fi.

2) Yesterday's Enterprise - Best time travel story in TNG, and in Peter David's "Q Squared," it also made for an interesting alternative timeline

1) Best of Both Worlds, Part 1 - Yes, the cliffhanger made me lose my shiat completely. There has never been, imho a cliffhanger as good in Trek.

As I've said in other threads, "Best of Both Worlds Part 2" and "Brothers" were the two episodes I loved to hate, only because in both cases, were it in the real world, you could say goodbye to your Picard and Data. We would never put Picard in charge of a starship again after doing what he did as a Borg, and they'd have to rootkit Data to prevent him from taking over a Federation starship again (which he did completely with little to no effort in the space of 15 minutes). Total fiction, the both of them.

No the Bajorans are the Lithuanians and the Cardassians are the Russians.

I didn't notice anyone mention "Ship in a Bottle".

I liked that one.
