The second they show this group, I was like NO WAY! Because one of them looked like McGyver. I thought it was going to be him as a guest star. Closer look ... not him. Um...so yeah that's about it. I will add a sexy Riker pic from this episode later today... stay tuned.
Also every "hot chick" guest star on this show is so 80's. Granted it is 1987, but I feel like I'm watching a Whitesnake video.

I do not like this episode. Granted, it's watchable, as many of the TNG eps are ... but it just does not make sense. It involves Q trying to tempt a human into becoming a Q. He gives Riker all of his powers. Soon Riker gives all of his friends everything they want, Geordi his sight, Wesley becomes an adult ... and Worf gets a hot chick?? Seems pretty trivial compared to giving a blind guy his fucking sight back! Anyway, Picard talks Riker into refusing the offer ... although Riker seems to really want to take it. In the end, Riker has the chance to use the power to bring a little girl back from the dead, but he can't because he promised Picard not to use his Q powers. There's a whole thing going on with pigs wearing 19th century French Military outfits. It's all so stupid and it seems like such a huge waste of time. Q has nothing better to do?!?!? You are probably the most powerful being in the universe and this is what you do with your life. I remember really liking Q, but so far he just irritates the shit out of me.

Another attempt at making the Ferengi into a nemises. This episode was pretty decent though. Evidently when Picard was the Cpt of the Stargazer he had destroyed an unknown vessel but was also forced to abandon ship. That unknown vessel was Ferengi and now Daimon Bok has come to return the Stargazer to Picard ... to honor him for killing his own people?? Whatever. Obviously it was a trap. Even though the episode makes no sense, I still always enjoy seeing other Starfleet vessels.

Now to the Ferengi. I love them. They are so funny and just so damn sleazy. Awesome. Then I realized that they are supposed to be the mortal enemies in TNG (like the Klingons in TOS). They are just not threatening enough. Also, Picard comments that they are very similar to 17th Century American Sea Traders. Really? REALLY!?!?! American traders?? Really!?

The tribe leader ends up kidnapping Tasha Yar ... for some weird custom. I guess the custom is to steal a white woman or something. But, then he ends up wanting to marry her, unfortunately his wife doesn't like this and she want to fight Yar to the death. From what I gather this entire thing was just a ploy to have someone kill his wife. Thus far, a tough start for TNG season one.

Even though the plot isn't the best, the characters sure do make this a fun episode. Yar, Troi and Crusher are all rather sexy in this one. Data is just hilarious and even Wesley is tolerable. I did notice something odd ... Wesley Crusher is taller than Geordi!! Speaking of Geordi, I like him ... seems like a nice guy. That's the thing with TNG, I actually want to be friends with these people ... where as the TOS crew I'm sure they would irritate me in real life. ....um, yes real life.

What Encounter at Farpoint does effectively is introduce you to the characters. You get to see what kind of ride TNG is about to take you on. It's not just a sci-fi show, it has so much more depth to it. I always called it a Soap-Opera in Space", with all due respect. This is what makes this show so good. Right off the bat all the actors pretty much have their characters down. Picard is already angry and irritated! What will be interesting is to watch the development of the Riker character. He is so overwhelmed and wild-eyed in these early episodes. ..... I actually owned these episodes on VHS.

The production quality is great, the special effects are just OK and the plot is pretty awesome. I'll try and not spoil it too much. Basically it takes place about 12 years after Undiscovered Country (and also the prologue in Generations). It starts with Capt.Uhura and Capt. Checkov attending a museum dedication to the Enterprise. Suddenly they are summoned to a distress call and end up on an alternate timeline. This is the result of an interaction between Charlie Evans and the Guardian of Forever. There is an epic space battle at the end as well as the ultimate showdown: Charlie Evans vs Gary Mitchell.
Well worth the watch. I have a new respect for Nichelle Nichols, she was very good in this series. I'd suggest everyone give it a go if your bored one day. It can be viewed on the Of Gods and Men website (although, I couldn't get Act Three to work so I had to Youtube it). Anyway, next up TNG!

The movie is solid across the board (even though it had a smaller budget than Final Frontier). The cast is great and the guest stars which include Kurtwood Smith, Kim Cattrall, Christopher Plummer and a cameo by Christian Slater ... are fantastic. I love seeing Sulu as the Cpt. of the Excelsior. A few things that I don't like: Kirk's lobster bib uniform, Kirk fights Kirk and the Klingon that looks like an Ewok.
The premise is basically this; someone is trying to sabotage a peaceful negotiation (spoiler: it's Odo) between Starfleet and the Klingons. Kirk and Bones go to Klingon jail and are defended by Worf. Stuff happens, the end. Just watch the fucking movie. It's exciting, funny and surprisingly poignant (whatever the hell that means).

The entire beginning is just dumb. Kirk rock climbing (I mean what's the point), Spock with rocket shoes and Bones being a schitzo. I feel like I'm watching a Three Stooges episode. The movie basically has the feel of Dune meets Star Wars meets feces. The Klingons apologize!! This movie did not need to be made.I get the whole bonding with the Klingons had to happen at some point ... but this could have just been done in Star Trek 6. And what the hell is with the sexual tension between Uhura and Scotty?!?!? When the heck did that happen.
