Trek [Aug. 3rd, 2005|11:41 am]
Tony Grist
Star Trek just ended with the last ever episode of Enterprise. You'd think it would have been a major media event and it wasn't. All of us true Trekkers stopped caring a long time ago. Maybe the franchise will be revived and maybe it won't.

There was a shoot out with a bunch of ugly aliens, some character I was supposed to care about but didn't blew himself up in an act of heroic self sacrifice (like a suicide bomber) and Archer got to hug the sexy Vulcan. There was a bang, there was a whimper and now Berman and Bragga are going away to have a long, long think.

Enterprise has been crap. In fact all of Trek has been crap since the point, about three quarters of the way though DS9, when they switched from cool storylines about post-colonialism and theocracy to uncool story lines about explosions.

I had been hoping this last episode might pull out a few stops and contain glances backwards (forwards?) to the glory days. And it did. It shoehorned Riker and Troi into the action. I winced when Riker was made to say he was a big fan of Captain Archer's but- never mind- it was good to see them.

How well they're both looking!

Hey, Riker and Troi never married. She married Worf - and then died of some strange disease, and Riker wouldn't speak to Troi after that.

But, hold!

You're thinking of the final episode, during which Picard went back and forth through time and was given glimpses of possible futures.

In the final movie, Troi and Riker were married by Picard.

If you'll recall, in the final TV show, Picard said the timelines were only possibilities, and had probably been altered by their intervention.

Aren't you thinking of Dax?

no I'm not thinking of Dax. I thought that was stupid, on DS9.

BTW, I watched DS 9 long after it was any good because I thought Julian (the doc) was very nice to look at.

Dax died in a very timely fashion- before the series became really, irremediably awful.
