"STAR TREK VOYAGER" RETROSPECTIVE: (3.25) "Worst Case Scenario"

Some time ago, I had posted a list of my top ten favorite episodes of "STAR TREK VOYAGER" (1995-2001). After re-examining my list, I was surprised to discover that the Season Three episode, (3.25) "Worst Case Scenario" was not on it. Read more... )

"STAR TREK BEYOND" (2016) Review

I might as well place all my cards on the table. I am not a fan of J.J. Abrams' reboot of the "STAR TREK" franchise. I heartily dislike the 2009 movie of the original title. And I also dislike - to a lesser degree, 2013's "STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS". So when I learned there was to be a third movie in this new franchise . . . needless to say I was not enthusiastic over the news. Read more... )

EXCESSIVE CRITICISM OF "STAR TREK VOYAGER"

For the past two decades, I have never encountered so much criticism of one particular Star Trek show than I have for the 1995-2001 series, "STAR TREK VOYAGER". Read more... )

Usually I would list my ten favorite summer movies of any particular year. However, since I had only watched ten new releases during the summer of 2016. Due to the limited number, I decided to rank the films that I saw: Read more... )

"STAR TREK VOYAGER" RETROSPECT: (7.21) "Friendship One"

For such a quietly presented episode, the "STAR TREK VOYAGER" Season Seven episode, (7.21) "Friendship One" packed quite a powerful punch. For the first time . . . or perhaps not . . . audiences saw the dangers of exploration - not just for the explorers, but for also the explored. Read more... )

"STAR TREK DEEP SPACE NINE" RETROSPECT: (5.04) "Nor the Battle to the Strong"

It has been a long time since I have watched an episode of "STAR TREK DEEP SPACE NINE". A long time. I have several DVD box sets for "STAR TREK VOYAGER" and the Syfi Channel now airs "STAR TREK NEXT GENERATION" episodes on a daily basis. So when I had decided to re-aquaint myself with the 1993-99 series, I chose the Season Five episode, (5.04) "Nor the Battle to the Strong". Read more... )

"STAR TREK" (2009) Review

Many fans of the STAR TREK franchise seemed to be in agreement that its last television series – "ENTERPRISE" (2001-2005) – had more or less killed the franchise. That opinion proved to be false with the release of the 2009 film – "STAR TREK", directed by J.J. Abrams. Read more... )

"STAR TREK VOYAGER: Love on a Starship"

I am not going to deceive myself and pretend that the relationship between Captain Kathryn Janeway and her First Officer, Commander Chakotay, lacked any chemistry. Of course there had been chemistry. Even a blind person could have sensed the chemistry between them just by listening to their dialogue. But while I will admit the enormous dynamics between the two characters, I never could see the possibility of a "happily ever after" for them. Not while the pair served as the command team of the U.S.S. Voyager. Read more... )

"STAR TREK VOYAGER" RETROSPECT: (5.13) "Gravity"

Every once in a while, an episode from the "STAR TREK" television franchise featured an episode that featured a few members of the cast being stranded on some planet during an Away mission. In fact, I cannot think of one TREK series that did not utilize this story structure. One of them was the Season Five "STAR TREK VOYAGER" episode called (5.13) "Gravity" Read more... )

"STAR TREK VOYAGER" RETROSPECT: (5.06) "Timeless"

The 100th episode of any television series is usually regarded with special interest - especially by television critics. Not all TV series go out of their way to write a special episode for that particular landmark. But many do. The producers of "STAR TREK VOYAGER", Rick Berman and Brannon Braga, along with screenwriter Joe Menosky, went out of their way to write a special story celebrating the series' 100th episode called (5.06) "Timeless".

"STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS" (2013) Review

Following the success of the 2009 movie, "STAR TREK", producer/director J.J. Abrams continued the saga of this alternate STAR TREK with a sequel called "STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS". This latest film not only continued the adventures of Starfleet Captain James T. Kirk and his crew, but also re-introduced a well-known villain from the franchise's past. Read more... )

"STAR TREK VOYAGER" RETROSPECT - (4.23) "Living Witness"

The STAR TREK franchise has aired a good number of episodes featuring the "Mirror Universe" - an existence in which the Federation is solely a Human-controlled, fascist empire. This universe was first introduced in the "STAR TREK" Season Two episode, (2.04) "Mirror, Mirror". The "Mirror Universe" was also featured in several "STAR TREK DEEP SPACE NINE" episodes and most memorably in an "ENTERPRISE" episode called (4.18-4.19) "In a Mirror Darkly". Read more... )
