  1. How was it impossible to counter Shinzon's cloaking device?

    I agree with DMD. As I understood it the grid employed by the Federation during the Klingon Civil War used active tachyon beams transmitted between different starships or sentry posts to create a tachyon field. The net thus was literally a “stationary” net which "caught" objects moving through. It thus would not work with a single starship moving through space. In effect, you could compare it to the SOSUS line used by NATO in the GIUK gap to search and track Russian submarines. But all this is academic because if I recall correctly in Nemesis it was stated that the Scimitar used a newly developed cloaking technology which produced no tachyon emissions at all, making tachyon grids or scans obsolete with regards to combatting the use of cloaking devices.
  2. The Son's of Mogh. the ending bothers me.

    After the dissolution of the House of Mogh Kurn wandered as a persona non grata in the Empire, unable to commit suicide as it was considered a dishonorable mode of death and became an alcoholic. He tried to restore his honor by Worf killing him in the “Mauk-to'Vor” ritual but was medically saved in time. He entered Odo’s security force but tried to be killed in the line of duty to restore his honor, making him a danger for his colleagues. After killing a Klingon warrior on a secret mission with Worf, Kurn wanted to commit dishonorable direct suicide. So in effect what they did was a last resort to save his life. The irony is indeed that a few years later he would have been restored in honor, but with his death seeking he probably would not have been alive to see it. I always wondered though whether the memory wiping of Kurn could be reversed.
  3. Jodie Whittaker is the 13th Doctor

    I only started with Doctor Who when the restarted the series in the early 2000s. I was a great fan of Tennant, Smith and even Capaldi grew on me. I couldn’t stand the Eccleston variant (luckily only 1 season) though. So I love Doctor Who but I’m kinda hesitant in seeing the Doctor turn female. I thus have my reservations regarding this move.
  4. Ah... I just do the same thing as when TNG ran. Ignore him as much as possible
  5. 15 (!) years later...

    40 next July. But still not one single grey hair though
  6. 15 (!) years later...

    If we're nostalgic of things 15 years in the past, it means we're getting old.
  7. DS9 followed by TNG. Then VOY and TOS. ENT dead last.
  8. Has it ever been stated why Q was so afraid of Guinan?

    I always thought they had some personal history and/or Guinan had some knowledge of some dark secrets/weakness of Q that he didn't want to see unveiled. Oh, and of course she just knows how to get under his skin
  9. Doctor Who season 7 or 33, take your pick

    Overall, the second Capaldi season is rather good, methinks.
  10. The music of Star Trek II: a concession.

    Unfortunately a week after you started this thread, composer James Horner died in a plane crash
  11. What's the deal with Starfleet Admirals?

    And yet he still colluded with Section 31.
  12. Q: With a Snap of a Finger...

    Not to give any spolers, but he will throw them a certain bone... but you'll have to wait for and look at the 7th season epsiode "Q2"
  13. Voyager: Message in a Bottle

    Message in a Bottle is probably one (if not the best) of the best episodes of ST:VOY.
