Strange, I'd consider Dear Doctor one of the better offerings of Enterprise, and certainly much better than Threshold could possibly ever be. Threshold is simply the single worst Star Trek episode in history. It's even worse than Shades of Gray or Sub Rosa.

In fact, I'd rather watch Sub Rosa ten times than Threshold once. At least that scottish groundskeeper is tons of fun. :haha:

on Trek news when I got to see Planes in theaters, I think I saw Rick Berman as producer for the lego movie. I am afraid.

Courtesy of Netflix (there's so little on there worth watching) after I finished The Walking Dead I decided to give TNG a re-watch.

It is as bad as I remembered with maybe a half dozen decent episodes per season and that's being generous. I should make a high point list for my own amusement... and of course to get majestic's thoughts on the matter, biased though they may be.

Half a dozen decent episodes per season? Season 3 alone has 24 greats, and that's before we're touching the 4th, 5th and 6th seasons here. :haha:

That said, my Voyager rewatch is now just past Year of Hell. The follow up is a dramatic decline in quality with smash hits like Mortal Coil or Random Thoughts (eugh).

Funny how Robert Picardo and Jeri Ryan carry the show... and some of the guest starts far surpass the main cast (looking at Rhys-Davies here :look: ).

Well I discovered Rick Berman WASN'T on the Lego Movie staff. However, on something I HAD to say. I just looked at the credits of Flash Gordon and the guy who plays Keenser was in Flash Gordon as Princess Aura's pet midget... I am not kidding.

Also Joe Cornish might be the new director for Star Trek. I don't know why. Well I know why Abrams isn't doing it but why Cornish? He hasn't done that much.

I've never heard of Joe Cornish. And who directs really doesn't matter to me. ST09 was a moderately ok popcorn flick with glaring holes. STID... I didn't waste my money or bandwidth on. While majestic and I may not agree on TNG, what I read of the plot synopsis coupled with his assessment of STID was enough to steer me clear of something I know I'd have loathed. And the track record of the first two, along with the casting and characterisations, tells me I won't give a damn about the third.

Have I told you how the Klingons looked in ST:ID? I like to call them BLINGONS:
