it's episode 2, the one where everyone gets space drunk.  it's the one where geordi cries about being blind.  and where picard and crusher almost go at it.


and I watched generations but it was boring so I messed around on my tablet during.  I thought I was going crazy because I'd look down, then up, and characters would be wearing different uniforms.  only thing I enjoyed in the movie was malcolm mcdowell's auto-gangsta style gun.  dude's so baller not even arthritis can stop him.

He's a little kid that constantly has to save a ship full of highly-experienced experts because only he knows what's wrong and how to fix it.

He was the equivalent of a 12 year old writing Star Trek fanfaction and inserting himself/herself as the main character:

“Gee, golly, gosh, gloriosky,” thought Mary Sue as she stepped on the bridge of the Enterprise. “Here I am, the youngest lieutenant in the fleet – only fifteen and a half years old.” Captain Kirk came up to her.
“Oh, Lieutenant, I love you madly. Will you come to bed with me?”
“Captain! I am not that kind of girl!”
“You’re right, and I respect you for it. Here, take over the ship for a minute while I go get some coffee for us.”
Mr. Spock came onto the bridge. “What are you doing in the command seat, Lieutenant?”
“The Captain told me to.”
“Flawlessly logical. I admire your mind.”

i agree that a key flaw in his character design is how broad his genius is. it would be fine if he was basically just super geordi, but they make him extremely gifted in every aspect of science and social activity besides. if they isolated him more, like data by distinguished mentally-challenged fellowing him in some aspects. i even understand that they set precedent for it by claiming that he was essentially the next einstein or tesla, but i agree that its too much. he is a bit like Gohan actually.

I 'finished' TNG.  In truth only saw half the episodes, but really enjoyed it and I'll go through those later on.  Final episode was an amazing way to end things (err, ignoring the movies).

Starting up Deep Space 9, so far it feels like Star Trek: Mall Cops.  Naturally there's going to be a shift from Enterprise exploring the universe with Picard (:bow2) to a space base with some new guy running things.  I like that o'brien is on the show.  He's one of the likable B characters from TNG.  And Bashir totally is a sincere Baltar.  Kira is nothing yet.  The arab trader alien is OK.  Sisko isn't anything yet.  Odo is cool; seems like a better security person than Worf or Tasha.  Dax is conceptually interesting, because it's a 20-something looking life form with several lives worth of accumulated knowledge, but it's hardly a character yet.

Well with the final episode the crew basically said they could make different choices to make sure that future turned out different. For example, in the All Good Things... future, they never let Troi drive the ship. The one time they let her do that, she crashed the thing and as such the three-nacelle Enterprise-D never existed.

Starting up Deep Space 9, so far it feels like Star Trek: Mall Cops.  Naturally there's going to be a shift from Enterprise exploring the universe with Picard (:bow2) to a space base with some new guy running things.  I like that o'brien is on the show.  He's one of the likable B characters from TNG.  And Bashir totally is a sincere Baltar.  Kira is nothing yet.  The arab trader alien is OK.  Sisko isn't anything yet.  Odo is cool; seems like a better security person than Worf or Tasha.  Dax is conceptually interesting, because it's a 20-something looking life form with several lives worth of accumulated knowledge, but it's hardly a character yet.

DS9 doesn't get face-melting awesome until around the last half of the third season into season four. At that time, Voyager was launching and all the distinguished mentally-challenged fellows who shit up Trek were focused on kissing UPN ass with that show so the DS9 people were allowed to make the show awesome.

Rick Berman wanted to do the whole Dominion War in four episodes. Since he was distracted with recycling bad TNG script ideas on Voyager, the people running DS9 made the Dominion War last FOUR YEARS. It took a nine-episode mini-series within the series just to tie up all the storylines at the end of the show.

yea im pretty lukewarm on Ds9 right now for like the exact same reason you are. Odos character especially has no endearing quality to it. he just seems like a perpetual penis. my favorite chars as of right now are qwark and bashir pretty ehhhhhh on everyone else.OBrien was indeed a good pick for this. they should have also added in the guy living in holofantasies.from engineering.

Keep watching. I maintain that DS9 had the worst beginnings of any Star Trek series but the best finish. It sat idle while all the other karts flew past it, only to luck out with a series of blue shells and stars to cross the finish line 1st place.

I tried DS9 for a few episodes last year; I think it was just about where they go through the wormhole, encounter The Founders? I ended up prioritizing other shows and games, didn't stay with it for exactly the reasons you've listed. And I recall O'Brien becomes a bit of lameness once Keiko shows up and starts emasculating him at every turn.

Actually im past that point and the show is already getting steadily better, even with most episodes. It's just that it needs a main story arc. It's not meant to be episodic like TNG, and I suppose the writers assumed the same thing after 3 seasons

I agree. Im also warming up to Kira a little as well. I cant develop enthusiasm for captain Sisqo tho. Dude is clutch, but just pales so hard in comparison to picard. I am happy that this show focuses more on the yellow and blue people instead of the reds though. Even Odo is getting pretty good for me here in S3, that origins arc of his was very nice.

The only character on this show I kinda dislike is Dax. I'm just not fascinated by its' biology or memories or anything. The show spends a lot of time on her/it and i don't much care for the subsequent episodes.

Read Q In Law by Peter David. Q marries Lwaxana, gives her the power of Q, but then dumps her. The Q prevent him from taking the power away from him so she proceeds to kick his ass all over the ship. It has one of the greatest Worf one-liners ever:

Sadly, I think Worf falls prey to writers wanting to show how tough the monster is by having it best Worf. Instead, basically Worf just looks like he's the only person to get beat up all the time.
