Yeah, it was lazy writing to just assume chemistry and close relationship between the characters.

Yeah, the death scene lacks any emotional resonance, and feels more like parody than homage. Shatner!Kirk is the kind of drama queen who can pull off "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!" Quinto!Spock is not. Besides which, the films haven't really made the effort to build Kirk and Spock's relationship. Instead, they rest lazily on the history of the characters in the franchise prior to this. They don't show OR tell; they just take it for granted that the characters have chemistry, which they don't really. Disappointing all around.

Mark, thank you so much for taking us on this incredible journey with you. I have enjoyed it so much. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to follow along.

This is the first time I've watched this movie since it was in theaters. I didn't realize Tom Hardy played Shinzon. There's a point about 20 minutes from the end where I was sure they were going to kill off the entire crew. But I had the same feeling when I watched the Firefly movie.

This is my favorite episode I remember watching from the original run of the show back in the day, though I mostly remembered it as "the one where t'pol invents velcro". I'm pretty sure there's only one specific event I remember happening on the show after this. Everything else is a surprise.

I used to own a beagle, and while they are cute and sweet dogs, they are not very bright, require a lot of training, and bark/howl all the time, so be prepared!

Amen. Everything involving Reed and Tucker especially was such unfunny garbage. Sigh.

I assume the dog got up there because what's her name put it there as an excuse to get closer to Archer.

I could tell Smirky McVulcan was a creeper from the second he appeared, and it was very hard to enjoy the episode after that, bracing myself for the inevitable. It wasn't badly handled, and I am sure there are trek fans who needed to hear the message that you can always revoke consent, but man am I tired of seeing female characters get metaphorically raped.

That too! I can't believe I forgot to mention it.

If this had been an episode about a male and female character, they would have cuddled and kissed at least. Remember the one with Tom and B'Elanna floating in space, running out of air? Yeah.

It also annoyed me that these characters did all the things you're not supposed to do when you're trying to conserve oxygen: Stay awake, shout at each other, light a goddamn fire.... You'd think they'd be trained for this shit, right? And yeah, not cuddling to conserve body heat makes no sense, no matter how heterosexual these dudes are.

On the plus side, it's fun to note that Reed dreams crackfic.
