Oh you KNOW I'm right.

No, that's one revision I would wholeheartedly support.

Special guest star Jason Bateman as Jason Bateman in wacky Arrested Development crossover episode about the intergalactic search for David Cross's sense of humor.

Sci-Fi Channel has been showing what they claim to be digitally remastered eps for the last few weeks and they haven't been fucked with as far as I can tell. It just looks like the picture quality's been cleaned up.

four months pass...
I've been watching TNG a lot lately on DVD, having acquired the third and fourth series on DVD. It's deadly stuff.

I am loving how sleazy Ryker is. He manages to make the most everyday lines drip with sordid innuendo.

bet you'd never guess that I was a stone(d)trekkie in the 70s.

"Make it Saab"

Here, was any of Enterprise any good? I watched the first one and was turned off by dreadful cheesy theme tune.

stet (stet), Sunday, 21 January 2007 18:12 (thirteen years ago) link

The one episode I watched wasn't as good as Quantum Leap.

Is it universally accepted that TNG is the pinnacle of Trek achievement?

The Real Dirty Vicar (dirtyvicar), Sunday, 21 January 2007 18:28 (thirteen years ago) link

The theme tune to Enterprise is brilliant!!!

It's the best next thing to the original!

jel -- (jel), Sunday, 21 January 2007 18:29 (thirteen years ago) link

I prefer original Trek, but I'm hardly a hardcore fan so my opinion probablydoesn't count for much (I've seen maybe 20 eps of TNG).

chap (chap), Sunday, 21 January 2007 18:31 (thirteen years ago) link

The best thing about Enterprise is that they explained why the Klingons looked liked humans in the original series! I had often wondered.

Oh, hell no.

please explain?

Ed (dali), Sunday, 21 January 2007 18:43 (thirteen years ago) link

Well, the Klingons came up with some disease by accident, and the only cure (created by Dr Phlox) was some sort of genetic enginneering that'd make look more human as a result. It was these kinda human Klingons that Kirk et al. came into contact with in their adventures.

Oh, Wiki explains it better than me!

no way are *all* the movies > tng, you r moron!!!

UART variations (ex machina), Monday, 22 January 2007 00:12 (thirteen years ago) link

tng headfuck episodes (beverley all alone on enterprise, riker all alone in some crazy delusional state of mind) are best trek ever.

ledge (ledge), Monday, 22 January 2007 00:23 (thirteen years ago) link

Deep Space 9 underrated.

fandango (fandango), Monday, 22 January 2007 00:25 (thirteen years ago) link

Best Trek Ever = Sisko complicitously and Garak actively (and both fraudulently) recruiting Romulans to fight the Dominion.

xp with fandango, who knows whereof he speaks

Candy: tastes like chicken, if chicken was a candy. (Austin, Still), Monday, 22 January 2007 00:26 (thirteen years ago) link

beverley all alone on enterprise

possibly my favorite tng episode!!! best part is when its just her and jean luc!

UART variations (ex machina), Monday, 22 January 2007 00:27 (thirteen years ago) link

Deep Space 9 underrated.

I think you need to watch it in order from the beginning. About the only thing that could get me to do this is a roomie with a box set

Set phasers to DIE DIE DIE!! on Star Trek: Voyager (and everything after)

fandango (fandango), Monday, 22 January 2007 00:29 (thirteen years ago) link

I tried to write a Trek = Marvel post (Classic has Lee/Kirby charm, early TNG veers between the worst Gary Friedrich and the best Roy Thomas), but bailed out because I never watched after TNG.

do i have to draw you a diaphragm (Rock Hardy), Monday, 22 January 2007 00:33 (thirteen years ago) link

There must have been about a million tng time loop episodes!

Just came across this in a, ahem, beverly crusher article on wikipedia:

Sub Rosa - Attends her grandmother's funeral and spends time in her haunted house, falling in love with a ghost.

Ok clearly there was good headfuck and bad headfuck.

ledge (ledge), Monday, 22 January 2007 00:40 (thirteen years ago) link

True Q - Befriends and mentors a young girl who is developing omnipotent powers. She is turned into a dog in this episode.

The banality of episode summaries

ledge (ledge), Monday, 22 January 2007 00:41 (thirteen years ago) link

If Trek = Marvel does that make Star Wars DC?

Anyway, that means ENTERPRISE = ULTIMATES?

UART variations (ex machina), Monday, 22 January 2007 01:25 (thirteen years ago) link

yes and yes

do i have to draw you a diaphragm (Rock Hardy), Monday, 22 January 2007 01:29 (thirteen years ago) link

i kind of love star trek but only through TNG and I didn't bother with the last two movies. what I saw of enterprise was so bad, so was voyager. ds9 seemed alright but i don't want to ahve to watch something all the time and keep track of a story arc and a plot and be all serious when it's STAR TREK, you know.

kyle (akmonday), Monday, 22 January 2007 02:43 (thirteen years ago) link

DS9 was consistently good, never really liked the others (but the occasional mindfuck episode was worth watching). Voyager and Enterprise didn't even look good enough to try.

milo z (mlp), Monday, 22 January 2007 02:45 (thirteen years ago) link

There aren't even enough nerds out there seeding for me to get to 100% on these Enterprise episodes that are trickling my way. It must be shit.

stet (stet), Monday, 22 January 2007 02:46 (thirteen years ago) link

"Shit" is pretty kind, when talking about Enterprise. The Vulcan and the Doctor were ok, the rest of the cast was terrible. The premise was stupid and the scripts were worse.

Candy: tastes like chicken, if chicken was a candy. (Austin, Still), Monday, 22 January 2007 02:52 (thirteen years ago) link

I kinda liked the premise of a Star Trek before all the tech shit actually worked, so they couldn't just redirect a tachyon pulse through the flux capacitor (hey, that might just work!) and nobody would trust the transporter. But it didn't turn out like that, it seems.

Oh: Wil Wheaton is blogging his way through TNG episodes.

stet (stet), Monday, 22 January 2007 03:01 (thirteen years ago) link

I am glad to see the love for the TNG headfuck episodes. A couple of those ones still give me the creeps just reading these five word summaries.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 22 January 2007 03:20 (thirteen years ago) link

8:15 am. I am posting links on the internet about Klingons.

Best TNG is the one with jean luc having the shit kicked out of him by a romulan for 45 minutes, "THERE ARE FOUR LIGHTS" and all that.

Johnney B English (stigoftdump), Monday, 22 January 2007 08:58 (thirteen years ago) link

NOT ROMULAN, CARDASSIAN!

feed latebloomer (latebloomer), Monday, 22 January 2007 14:30 (thirteen years ago) link

Ugh, I just met yer real Trekkie at the DVD shop's SUPER CLOSING DOWN SALE. I found Wrath of Khan for £2, and at the till was reading the box of TNG Season 4 when this wee baldy 40-something dude in specs and an anorak sidles up to me.

Lispy, soft pedo-voice: "ooh, the best theason of all, that!"
"The borg ... the borg! And at the thame time, deirdre wath kidnapped. Coronation thtreet [shitty UK soap] fanth were crying about Deirdre and did you thee uth crying about Picard going to the Borg? No!"

Me: "Big crossover between Coronation Street fans and Trekkies then, is there?"

He tharthed on an angry reply then yelped "OH MY GOD! OH. MY. GOD. THAT CAN'T BE! IT IS! OH MY" and started jumping on the spot. At a Knight Rider all-seasons box set.

I was kinda embarrassed to buy Wrath of Khan, then.

star trek VI is the best one

^^^controversial but true

say it with blood diamonds (a_p), Monday, 22 January 2007 19:09 (thirteen years ago) link

that looks like i'm quoting someone but it's really just me hoping someone expressed that view upthread, i haven't read much of it

say it with blood diamonds (a_p), Monday, 22 January 2007 19:10 (thirteen years ago) link

ST VI = first movie i can remember crying at the end of (and all i remember about it is kirk making his big sad "this is the last voyage of the starship enterprise" speech at the end - i barely even remember the plot, apart from it having something to do with making peace with the klingons). i don't know how proud i am of that.

J.D. (Justyn Dillingham), Tuesday, 23 January 2007 08:46 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh yeh, cardassian, whatever. I haven't seen it for a few years, all the bumpy forehead bad guys merge into one. Ferengui (sp?) were just dwarf Klingons, really. (at least they are in my head)

Johnney B English (stigoftdump), Tuesday, 23 January 2007 09:02 (thirteen years ago) link

what was the one where riker had multiple realities (not the one in a mantal hospital). i dunno maybe there were loads of rikers, something like tyhat
