Quote from: daf on May 11, 2021, 07:04:36 PMThat's one heck of a skip! Did you do the rest in this order : Enterprise - Original 1960's series - Voyager - Picard?
Quote from: Malcy on May 11, 2021, 06:35:48 PMI've skipped TNG and DS9 on my big rewatch but I would really appreciate if people could keep an eye out for a scene that I'm beginning to think I have imagined. I've mentioned it before with no luck and can't remember what series it appears in. An away team beam somewhere and one of the extras has the maddest reaction to beaming to wherever they go. He basically acts like it's the first time he's ever been through the transporter and really stands out. All wide eyed and what the fuck just happened sort of thing.
Quote from: Lungpuddle on May 12, 2021, 12:54:34 PMI find this episode pretty boring, but the weird parts that they drop later on (such as Riker being able to read Troi's thoughts) are really memorable.
Quote from: Malcy on May 12, 2021, 12:55:31 PMI think it was re-written in a couple of days to add in enough material to make it a 2 parter.
Quote from: Lemming on May 12, 2021, 12:48:20 PMAll the performances are more than a bit shaky. Special mention to Brent Spiner, who hasn't got the Data character down at all yet, and the performance is really unnerving and weird. Gurning at people after ever other line. Wonder what kind of briefing he was given before playing the character.
Quote from: Lemming on May 12, 2021, 01:43:32 PMDefinitely has that feel, the middle section is so slow and unsure of itself. You can virtually see the point at which the new material was inserted - the Q/Farpoint plot just suddenly stops so that a lot of people can come aboard and look at the holodeck, and then in the final third of the two-parter, the Q/Farpoint plot resumes just as abruptly as it paused.

Quote from: Lemming on May 12, 2021, 01:43:32 PMI like the weirdness too, I remember there being quite a lot of very strange borderline-supernatural elements to the first two seasons of TNG. The ones that stick in my mind are the planet so beautiful that it can cure any illness (Haven) and the race of people who managed to physically extract their "negative" personality traits, which then took the form of a sea of black sludge (Skin of Evil). I also really like the unnerving quasi-horror atmosphere, like when the Stargazer's dead crew appear as ghosts. It's a shame the show lost those aspects, even if the scripts got much much better afterwards.
Quote from: daf on May 12, 2021, 10:41:44 PMThe only bits I remembered were the trial scene . . . oddly, I was expecting a scene where Picard does a sort of inspection of the crew - which must be on another episode.
