So Emily has a reaction that is completely out of her control and Dora gets pissed at her? If she drinks coffee again knowing this happens I could see getting frustrated but what the fuck, Dora?

Dora is not looking pissed to me.

So Dora had a thought you disagree with, and... your reaction seems angrier than hers.

That was not an ordinary espresso shot. That was the first espresso shot ever made by noob Emily. It may never be duplicated.

And Voyager was blessedly free of holodeck episodes and Q.

Well, maybe not free. But certainly less than other iterations of the franchise.

Two words about the demise of Trek as something worth watching: Berman & Braga.

Fairhaven.

Q civil war.

Yeah.    I stopped watching because of the holodeck tripe and Q stuff.    For a show with a theme of "boldly going" they sure were into duplicating the same things over and over and over again.

Now DS9,  that was blessedly free of Q.    Sisko punched Q in the face and Q never came back.

DS9 was the shit, but even that had the occasional awful episode. Like (shudders) Risa.

honestly, any time star trek brings up the theory of evolution, you're in for a bad time.

Heh. At least this one didn't randomly change the gender of anyone to serve as a plot device?

Agreed.  Or anything to do with the big-eared money-grubbing capitalistic [edit] parodies of a well-known and often put-upon religious denomination.  (Ferengi).   It is a shame that is what they evolved into,  especially considering insiders involved in the show pretty much acknowledged they were mocking said folks.   

In small doses they were great foils,  entire episodes... eh.        Interestingly enough they were intended by the TNG team to be the new "bad guys --" replacing the Romulans and Klingons as Baddie Of The Week.     Sure didn't turn out that way.


And another thing DS9 did to death was LETS EXPLORE MORE KLINGON CULTURE WITH ANOTHER EPISODE.    Great.   One or two is fine...   But holy moly we had more than enough chance to flesh out the Romulans...  or any number of cultures.    Lets have another Klingon Episode!   WHEEEE!.

Apparently though my opinion was in the minority as these were the things that drove the all-mighty ratings.

Close to the mark on that comment and unnecessary and unacceptable.


[EDIT:  Rephrased to avoid issues.  Apologies!]

I wonder, will Emily become the Banana Smoothie Meister of CoD and with The Hammer Of Smash be added to the arsenal?

And will it be a miniature version of Mjolnir?

The fourth entry on this list explains the salamander thing. I've never watched Voyager and had no idea what to expect when googling "salamander episode never speak of this"  :psyduck:

I had no idea either, but I never could stand to watch much of Voyager.
I thought I'd seen all the episodes of Voyager, but I don't remember that one.

I don't think I'm going to run to watch it, either.

It's nice to see someone else watches SFDebris.

Pretty much anything directly science or engineering related the new Treks somehow gets it all wrong.
The writers don't talk to or just ignore science for the story THEY want to tell and to hell with continuity or consistency.

I think thats why Bab5 or even Captain Power was much better story wise.

Per evolution, I think they were trying to talk about fate, but wanted it to sound more sciencey (not to be confused with scientific.)
