Welp. You know the deal. Pretty much anything Star Wars. The good, bad, and ugly. Mostly bad and ugly, though.

Yeah, I've heard it begins and ends awful, but has some good stuff in the middle. I don't have any ambitions of finding out for myself.

It ends on a decent level... but the finale, that was supposed to be a Valentine to fans, was a TNG episode with the Enterprise portion as a holodeck recreation. It would have been a Valentine... say, if the show was cancelled in Season 2 (and it very well may have been written then). But when it was just coming into its own and got the axe... rather than an Enterprise story, it's Troi and Riker in the episode about the Pegasus. And a definitely-older and heavier Riker chatting up Troi who is also much older and wearing a green Starfleet uniform... with the show we tuned into watch as Riker's diversion while he looks for pat answers to his issues with Admiral Pressman?

I don't blame Jolene Blalock for being pissed about having to shoot the episode on her birthday. It's a huge middle finger to the cast, to the fans that were coming around on Enterprise... and what made it worse was the damned fools thought they were doing us a favor.

So, I don't consider it part of the end. It was a second season episode tossed into the end of the fourth. The season and series ended on the excellent Terra Prime arc... which, amusingly enough, also featured Peter Weller as the villain.

But yeah, when someone pisses about Star Trek being ruined by Abrams, I know they're full of crap. I was there. I was watching it every Wednesday night, on UPN. I saw the Voyager finale when it aired, even made a note of it in my school notebook the next morning. It was in May of 2001; I still remember it to the month. Abrams saved Trek. Orci and Kurtzman may have burned out their benefit... but Abrams knows what he's doing.

And for the record, I've never seen Lost and never had any interest in it... so I'm not some raving Abrams fanboy. Just saw the effect he had on something I enjoyed.

Yeah, between Voyager, Nemesis, and portions of Enterprise...Star Trek was really scraping the bottom of the barrel at the end and was in about as much need of a reboot as Star Wars--and Abrams delivered an enjoyable rendition. In fact, I'm even willing to take back what I said before about it not being very Trek-y--it's just more TOS Trek minus the preachy Roddenberry leftist utopia bits and a few of DS9's grittier interpretations of Earth thrown in (even including a reference to Section 31).

I do like the Section 31 tie-in. Back when I did Trek EU, I picked up a couple of the Section 31 books... and yes, Kirk had a run-in with them. Of course, Trek EU is totally noncanon, but...

Also, Section 31--in that book--tried making an Omega particle, thus tying into Voyager's The Omega Directive. So... eh, neat idea.

I understand Section 31 is one of many DS9 concepts that enraged Roddenberry fans but pleased me.

Speaking of Trek, I'm feeling a DS9 rewatch coming on, and since we've discussed it a few times, I was wondering how a review thread would go over with you guys? I'd watch an episode, discuss it briefly and give it a score out of ten. Does that interest anyone, or would it be a boring endeavour interesting only to me? Also, it would be a nice unified place for the continuing Trek discussions we have occasionally.

I'm actually seven episodes away from finishing the series and was sort of thinking of doing the same thing.

Depends upon the pleasure involved. If one takes pleasure in setting the blighters on fire or slicing them up with laser swords or subjecting them to overly long, pointless and downplayed political scenes, then that's an ok for the Star Wars universe. You can also dress them very provocatively, but to EVER consider actually committing a sexual act of any kind? Too far...

But there's something inherently yet hilariously wrong in the phrase "Ewok sex trade."

...Even if it's a likely and logical consequence of their conquest. They're not big or strong enough to be useful laborers like Wookiees... they don't have amazing technological or scientific prowess like the Omwati or Givin...

So... rich, depraved folks on Coruscant, Corulag, Anaxes, and Eriadu and other centers of Imperial high culture... welllll...

Sure. Bear in mind that season 1 was back in the spring, so half the episodes may be very dim in my memory.

Speaking of DS9, have you seen this? It could have come straight out of Vic's and it is awesome. Speaking of Vic, James Darren also has a CD that has all the music he sang as Vic Fontaine on it--it's called Straight from the Heart.

I'm pretty sure that already happened around 1999. The debri's been falling out of the sky and into books, games, and movies ever since.
