Voyager " Author, Author "

:rollin When fake Tom Paris has a moustache for no reason.




Actually this is basically a rewrite of the episode where Picard tries to prove that DATA isn't just an object.

Certainly came down to the same premise. And the same outcome, as both jurists essentially punted the question. However, Data's episode was strictly courtroom television. The Doctor's episode had a much stronger plot, with the novel being offensive and his friends turning on him before eventually having to defend him as he changed his stance. Measure of a Man was probably the better episode, but it was pretty one dimensional compared to AA.

" Natural Law "

As soon as the barrier was down and those slimy people showed up I was like "sigh...it's going to be one of these episodes"

But it was resolved extremely quickly.

That's interesting because it seems to be exactly what ST has always striven to be. I don't recall it being a particularly strong episode, but I'd call it exemplary of Star Trek as a concept for television.

I thought it was going to be about Voyager trying to get those indigenous people left alone on their own world - but it lasted all of 3 minutes and was resolved.

I don't mind those kinda stories when done well but usually they're really obvious and frustrating and the "corporate" people are always one dimensional

" we want our goals END OF " that Star Trek does so often.

A bit like that one guy on Friendship 1 who absolutely refused to see anything other than his own prejudice.

They came to help ! No they came to kill ! He delivered my baby ! Probably going to kill it anyway ! They're cleaning our atmosphere ! No they're attacking us !

" Homestead "

And right on cue.

" Our crew need help "

" YOU CANT BE HERE "

" we just want to go and get out crew "

" THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE "

" can you help at all ? "

" NO :angry: "

I know it must be hard to write 25 episodes a year but still. . .

Well that must be the fastest problem solved ever. Entire crew brainwashed - Tuvok mind melds with Chakotay - next scene - everything back to normal.

The frequency is seve.....

I'm gonna take this photon torpedo, turn it sideways and fire it so far up their Ferengi candy-asses that they'll be able to use the giant cavity to store all of their gold pressed latinum. IF YOU SMEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLELELELELELELELELLLLL WHAT THE WORF. IS. COOKING.

You really wouldn't watch an episode where Wesley annoys Worf and gets hit by the Peoples Elbow? 

Also Nic Cage as Q doing his batshit mental thing.

Since it's a new thread and I haven't posted this in a while anyway, here are Peter Anspach's Star Trek Parodies.  These are written by the same guy who compiled the famous "Evil Overlord List" many moons ago.  I'm old enough to remember when there were only four Star Trek series and four parodies, then came Enterprise and the fifth parody.

Yes, it's a horrible ugly site, from back when people had horrible ugly sites, but the content is worth it.

I think it's more of the "I can't grow a real beard but I'll keep what I've got so people think I'm a fully grown adult now instead of Wesley Crusher" beard. :biggrin:

He's guest starred in a couple of episodes of Dark Matter, and still all I see is Wesley Crusher, except chunkier.

He thought Into Darkness was the best Trek movie and Beyond was awful.

I spent a few minutes investigating that possibility. He's actually on a very similar trajectory. Not there yet, though.



In any event, I like the guy. He was despised for being Wesley Crusher and managed to make a career out of just being a pretty good dude. Hell, neither of Lucas's Anakins have been able to pull that off, and one's actually in the loony bin.

So I guess that means Blue Shirt is just a fan with money to burn.

No. I wish that All Good Things was in place of Nemesis. Would have been the perfect closer.


They could probably make 3 more TNG movies with the budget they spend on the Kelvin movies.
