I think I will skip straight ahead to "All Good Things".
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.

I see what you did there  ;D

I like how the tricorders sound the exact same as they did in The Wrath Of Khan.

I like that episode. Quite bleak by Star Trek standards, aside from fixing up the planet at the end.

Also on Stargate, but as a total douche (at first, eventually actually leads one of the shows, which is totally weird).

And yes, I love that man. It's nice when bald dudes such as myself have a guy like him and Picard to look up to.

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.
Beaming the entire damn crew down to the planet, save for Crusher and a handful of scrubs has to be Picard's dumbest moment as captain.


It was really not good whenever Spiner played any character that wasn't Data.
Most of the actors were exposed when asked to do things outside their primary characters. The mirror episodes of DS9 are the best examples. Dorn and Spiner are probably the worst in this regard. Avery Brooks plays everything so over the top when he's not Sisko he ruins what should be some great episodes.

Agreed. Sucks to be Carry. Killed stupidly a couple of weeks before they get home.

SG-1 did it better too. :biggrin: I don't even remember that much about the Voyager episode, or how it warranted being a double episode.

And yes, I love that man. It's nice when bald dudes such as myself have a guy like him and Picard to look up to.

I've already proclaimed that if I'm ever balding, I'm going to rock the Picard. Or probably more accurately, the Sisko, with the goatee.

At least Bond villains are supposed to be eccentric. I was thinking of Far Beyond the Stars. Whole lot of bad acting in that one.

Watched "All Good Things" and the retrospective episode "Journey's End", and started Star Trek: First Contact.  After that, I will call it a day with STTNG.

After a short break from Trek I will start Deep Space Nine.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

So did you find Decent as a whole as bad as the rest of us? And did you cover all of S7?

"Descent" was not good, although (as is the norm) Pt. 1 was better than Pt. 2.

And no, I didn't cover all of Season 7.  I love Trek, but I was getting eager to move on, especially since this was basically review - I watched most of TNG when it originally aired.

Which is not the case with most of Deep Space Nine or most of Voyager, both of which I intend to watch in total.

I've almost finished my binge watch of all of Voyager.

I've got 4 eps left of season 7 then I need to go back and watch all the eps I skipped which were largely Klingon centric episodes. Le Yawn. My least favourite.

Just grunting animalistic aliens always fighting and whinging about honour.

So dull.



After i've finished Voyager - i'm gonna start Enterprise as it's only 4 seasons and then i'll finally watch all of DS9.

Not that it needed to be said, but you're not missing much. For me that was more of a "I've run out of good Star Trek to watch" kind of show. :lol

Meh it's only 4 seasons so i'll give it a shot. I might like it.

OR i'll get tired of the exact same tropes they used to death on Voyager.

Enterprise has a lot of rehash of Voyager, and other Trek. S3/4 is when they changed and tried to do their own thing to varying degrees of success.
I'd still recommend watching the last episode of S2 followed by all of S3 (and maybe the opening of S4 for closure), then maybe In a Mirror Darkly from S4.

Finally finished S1 of Enterprise. It was ok, just, but there were an awful lot of filler episodes, and nothing to make me want to watch more than one episode at a sitting.

I wasn't keen on the Sulaban (sp?) as the recurring enemy - again, just ok. I didn't really get a sense of danger from any of the episodes - you just knew that whatever scrapes they got themselves into would be neatly resolved in the last 5 minutes of the episode.  ::)

Reid is probably the most annoying of all the crew characters. Not sure what his purpose is.

You just love him and hope nothing bad ever happens to him.

Same with Neelix. I don't find either of them irritating. Not like Kes or Deanna.
