Ditto. The only "prejudice" I have is being told that a viewpoint that is as much inference as my own is unassailable fact. I'm more than happy to admit that Trek has got it very wrong on occasion,...

Inference: the act of passing from one proposition, statement, or judgment considered as true to another whose truth is believed to follow from that of the former.

<Shakes head wearily>

Once again, Saquist, you're as guilty of inference as those of us you continually accuse of the same thing.

Let's take it point by point:

I dunno, I always felt Trigger was merely the Yin to Saquist's Yang. Everything you've just said applies equally to our dear 'logical' friend.

That was the season 6 finale/season 7 opener, Unimatrix Zero. I don't think it was as bad as all that: it doesn't stretch credulity too much in terms of the crew's previous Borg experience: we'd seen...

I don't quite agree: I actually really like much of Voyager's first season. There were some great ideas: the Vidiians were a great invention until Lifesigns pulled their teeth in the 2nd season -...

I don't think the series ever really jumped the shark - that would imply that the series became "silly" or had reached a point where suspension of disbelief was difficult. I do think the show reached...

What's that got to do with anything? No-one is suggesting that Romulus is part of the Federation.

Yeah, I didn't miss him after he "left", either. I think there was a bit of a squandered opportunity there to be honest. Imagine what they could have done with him if he'd been a more sympathetic...

You appear to be choosing to disregard Pike's opinion of Kirk. Pike took a special interest in Kirk Snr's last mission (as mentioned in the film) and has clearly taken a special interest in Kirk Jnr....
