The one were the Enterprise evolves and thinks it's a train.

Ugh. Every time I was scrolling thru the TNG eps and it came to that one - the synopsis made it sound awesome - then i'd start the ep and be like ::) oh bollocks it's THIS one....

I hate holodeck episodes. They're largely a hugely missed opportunity.

You have the chance to create a realm where literally anything is possible. The rules of physics or euclidian geometry don't apply.

Yet you use it to put a guy in a suit of armor on a train.


Voyager was no better. Every holodeck episode was in Sandrines or Da Vinci's workshop.

No imagination AT ALL.


Yeah.  I love the way all Star Trek episodes involving Time Travel*, The Holodeck or any Art or Culture ALWAYS come from our history - makes you think how barren/dull the 21st and 22nd century must have been!

I caught pt. 2 of "Time's Arrow".  Definitely not as good as pt. 1, but not as bad as some of you guys are making out. 

Yes, there were a few cringe moments.

Also caught pt. 1 of "Chain of Command".
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

After Hours (Cracked) did a whole episode about that. Even the music comes from our time period because they're all lifeless and soulless.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

Speaking of this, does anyone know the name of the TOS episode where the Enterprise crew goes back to the Wild West? It's one that I remember from childhood, and I'd like to give it another watch for a laugh..

It's not time travel, but probably Spectre of The Gun.

That's The Spectre of the Gun.  One of the more enjoyable episodes from the mostly lame 3rd and final series.

OK, I caught "Chain of Command" Pt. 2, and followed it up with "Ship in a Bottle" (which I enjoyed immensely), and "Birthright" Pts. 1 & 2 and "The Chase" and finally "Rightful Heir."

I am close to the end of Season 6, and I'm going to watch both parts of "Descent" no matter what anyone says lol

Descent is decent.

No, it's pretty bad. Maybe it's just the 2nd half being awful, but the entire premise was just really bad. Lore was such a waste of a potentially great character, and it really helped neuter the Borg.

Masks is a terrible episode for exposing Brent's limited abilities.

He's one of those people that thinks he's really funny but he just isn't. At all.

In ST? Sure. But he was god damn hilarious in Out to Sea.

Reading all the hate sometimes makes me wonder if this is truly a thread for Star Trek fans.
Then I remind myself that this is DTF and dispensing hate on what you like is the way to go. :biggrin:

Making my way through the first season right now of TOS. I'm really enjoying it so far. Finished up "The Conscience Of The King" last night. I can't believe how much I'm getting into TOS because I could never get through it before.

I'd say the part you've watched is overall pretty weak, but from here on out, the rest of S1 is absolute classic. S2 as well. S3 isn't as strong, but I don't think it's that disproportionate with the rest as many do.

Ha ha. Just finished watching this. More than a little bit silly, but a great blast from the past. The famous Kirk drop kick was a highlight. :tup

The only cast member of Star Trek I've met.  Seemed like a nice guy.

So for shit and giggles recast the Next Generation for the Kelvin universe.

For Starters...

Picard : Mark Strong.
Dr Crusher : Bryce Dallas Howard.
Data : Alan Tudyk.
Worf : The Rock.

Ensign, what's the shield frequency of the Ferengi ship?
The frequency is seve.....
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT THE SHIELD FREQUENCY IS! 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.

Yeah............. no. :lol

Despite what some people may say, there is some good stuff in season 7. I like the Gambit two parter, Parallels, The Pegasus, and Lower Decks are all legitimately great episodes, Genesis is dumb, bonkers silliness but I still kinda enjoy it, and I also remember liking Preemptive Strike a lot, but I don't know if it was because the episode was actually good or if it was just that Michelle Forbes was in it.

But, yeah, there're also quite a few bad episodes in season 7. At the very least skip Masks (gimmicky), Sub Rosa (just... bad), Emergence (just about the most boring holodeck episode ever), and maybe Liaisons (just a dumb episode). Interface is also almost universally reviled but I think it's just passably dull and not offensively like the above episodes or much of season one.

Masks and Interface are REALLY bad episodes, but neither of them can hold a candle to Sub Rosa.
