Re: S5E18 - Cause and Effect

This is one of my most-enjoyed episodes; I go back to it often. I don't have a deep analysis on that or anything; I just enjoy time travel and causality stories. :) I like this episode so much, I'm even gonna leave that whole poker game alone. ;)

Re: S5E23 - I, Borg

I like this episode quite a bit (as I guess I enjoy most Borg episodes), definitely for the roller coaster that Bob described, but also for the exploration of individuality and (especially) personhood (see also "Measure of a Man") and what are in my opinion some very strong scenes and character stud...

Oh, interesting! Klingons do appreciate a beard, huh.

Re: Where's Chris?

This should have auto-posted in the news section already, but because this thread was already taking place, just a quick note that we've put up the latest update about the investigation. Please read the post itself for more info, but in brief, the investigation is complete, and Chris's suspension is...

Re: S5E5 - Disaster

Worf is a highlight for me in this episode, for sure. There is kind of a worn out trope about men being useless-slash-clueless regarding childbirth, and though it's presented in this episode also through a lens of possible cross-species confusion, it's still enough of a thing to give me pause, not e...

Re: S5E6 - The Game

I admit I skipped this one for Watch Club, as I remember it being particularly eye-rolly for me. That said...perhaps I will find myself revisiting it later, and maybe it won't be as bad as I remember (as has happened actually a fair amount for Watch Club), but for the time being...eh. What did bring...

Re: S5E2 - Darmok

I have watched this episode so many dang times. And it's the one I can show to people who aren't even into Star Trek , or maybe even necessarily sci-fi! It just nicely illustrates so much about language and communication and gives so much to think about. Plus a device for framing cultural phenomena ...

Hard agree. I almost skipped this one for Watch Club, as I tend to skip it for rewatches, but I was glad I went back, because I had forgotten that line. :lol:
