    I'm not sure where this weird desire for crossover in Voyager comes from, Tom Paris was supposed to be Locarno from the academy shuttle crash episode of TNG, even though they did manage to get the same actor back in that case they changed their minds anyway. Something about Locarnos character being too irredeemable.

    Easier for them to use those leftover TNG season 7 scripts. Don’t even have to find-replace on those that way.

    Yeah, my "I'll just get the free trial and watch it one week," idea was semi-derailed by the discovery that Deep Space Nine gets dramatically better overall in its second season.

    My father is now watching it in semi-parallel and believes first season Bashir should be thrown into a lake and drowned, per a communique I received yesterday.

    I mean, I'd Watch Voy before bothering with Disco if you're gonna do a full star trek watch. Voyager is shit compared to TNG and DS9 but there are still a ton of good episodes and if you like average TNG it's just a ton more of that.

    It does not. Netflix is region-locked, not account-locked. You can use your Netflix ID anywhere and the content you see will be based on where you are connecting from.

    I actually haven't so I'm judging her solely on the merits of her performance as Ensign Ro. Which isn't to say she's bad, by TNG standards she's absolutely top 25%, but Visitor made some of my favourite episodes of star trek ever.

    I always wondered what would happen if someone loaded up a holodeck with a simulated engineering crew and told them to solve problem X. It's weird that in the Trek future the Turing test means exactly dick. It's also kind of creepy that Voyager's Doctor eventually got granted something like personhood rights since he'd been active so long and had outgrown his original programming, while every other holodeck personality out there gets turned on and off and reset back to their baseline without anyone worrying that they're killing a nascent sentience. Never mind the two Moriarty episodes where the Enterprise's computer just up and creates a full on AI because someone asked it to, and the crew then imprisoned in an artificial universe and never talked about it again. Or the time the Enterprise had a baby...

    TNG Trek was weird as fuck on the subject of AI.

    I am going to assume because it is Star Trek, and thus tragedies have a quantum property where if they're observed by a cast member, they can be averted.

    There's also the sorta-concern that someone will steal it if they just let it drift.

    I can't remember when it was, but there was a TNG where they met a time traveller and Picard got stuck on the wrong side of the Prime Directive.
    I really liked that one, because usually it's other people asking him to avert a catastrophe, and he's all 'The Prime Directive says we have to let you all die', and he's so devoted to the idea like it's the moral high ground.
    It's nice to see him asking someone else for something he's not supposed to have. I just wish he'd learned a lesson from it, but the ending kind of ruined that.

    Nobody remembers the singer. The song remains.

    I thought it was more to do with not wanting to pay the writer of that original episode a character residual?

    That's a rumor. To be fair, it's a rumor I find plausible, but it's never been solidly proven.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    Is that the one that was supposed to feature Robin Williams as the time traveller* but he couldn't do it because he was shooting Hook? Robin Williams would have been great there.

    I found Keiko to be insufferable when I was ten and that opinion hasn't changed today.

    That may well be the real world reason but the publicized version is that they felt Locarno having been embroiled in an accidental homicide conspiracy was too "unstarfleet" to be redeemed in voyager.

    I think in this case it would have been much cooler if they had stuck with that character, especially since they went with the same actor anyway.

    Yeah they've said that as the "official" reason, but Paris' origin is so minutely different from Locarno's that the distinction is purely in the realm of pedantry. They 100% simply didn't want to pay royalties.

    Can't remember if Bashir got dunked on a bunch of other times in season 1. It probably would've helped.
