    This episode also marked the last appearance of Lt. DeSalle in the series. Catspaw is one of the hidden gems of classic Trek's second season. What stood out for me was the balance of humor and creepiness imbued within this journey (e.g. Spock's deadpan response to the witches dreadful song, "Very bad poetry Captain" to which Kirk replies " A more useful comment, Mr. Spock." The blend of these elements makes this an ep worth repeat viewings. Happy 50th to Catspaw!!!!

    It looks promising based on the photos. The introduction of Lt. Ash Tyler in last week's ep was a good move. It came at a crucial time and is one of the better introductions of a major character on a Trek series in a long time. Ash has been through a lot and he seems to mesh well with Captain Lorca who also has been through a lot during his service to Starfleet. Looking forward to this new ep.

    I have watched each episode so far, and while there are many aspects I do not care for, I like a lot of it, and it has good issues in the episodes, and more than one point of view. Some of the humor is too risque, but other is side-splitting hilarious. My favorite humor was when the brother asked the captain about whether they could still have lidded drinks on the bridge, and the captain said sure. And later we saw he taking a sip. (I don't have any of the names in my head). Haven't you wondered if the crew really did all their eating in the cafeteria? I really liked the fact that in the latest episode, fighting the Krill, they could not bring themselves to let the children be harmed, yet were told that these children would grow up hating them. That was a very star trek-like episode in my opinion. They had to act to stop the Krill form murdering 100,000 or so people, yet couldn't slay the Krill children, who remain to hate them for killing everyone else, which was the only way to stop the mass killing. A no win scenario.

    Spoiler Alert! (If you haven't seen episode #4 of Star Trek: Discovery, “The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”) Last Time on Discovery… The aggressive, deadly Tardigrade, now aboard the U.S.S. Discovery is now the object of Captain Lorca’s borderline obsession, as he sees in it a way to defeat the enemy. Commander Landry soon learned the hard way just how powerful and lethal the “Ripper” really is and what “makes it so good at killing Klingons.” “Discovery is no longer a science vessel,” Lorca warned. “It’s a warship.” He demands that Stamets and Burnham find a way to weaponize the Ripper. The battle is on, with the U.S.S. Discovery and her crew on red alert as they engage a pair of Klingon Birds-of-Prey in a firefight. Or is it? It’s actually only an exercise, a simulation, and one that’s not gone well. “We’ll do better next time, sir,” Landry promises, prompting Lorca to reply, “It would be hard to do worse.” The Klingon intrigue continues apace, with Voq starved but still the Torchbearer and still determined to make T’Kuvma proud. Kol arrives, initially kneeling to Voq and noting that the Klingons need Voq back in the fight, as his ship possesses the cloaking technology that can crush Starfleet. Voq, however, needs a dilithium process. Meanwhile, L’Rell stands front and center amidst the intrigue. Whose side is she really on? We also learned that Voq and L’Rell ate Captain Georgiou, with Voq having smiled as he picked the meat from her smooth skull. Not surprisingly, there’s still plenty of tension between Lt. Saru and Michael Burnham. Saru still doesn’t trust Burnham, and why should he? And she proves him right yet again when she makes small talk with Saru in attempt to gauge his fear level in the presence of the Ripper. Take note in the photo of Burnham’s uniform. As the ship’s computer noted: “Rank… none.” Lt. Stamets hates what’s going on around him. A man of science, he’s forced to work for a man of war (Lorca) and with a mutineer (Burnham). Yet, successfully determining how the Discovery can make a long jump without losing navigational stability – and using the Ripper to do so – might save countless lives, starting with the souls on Corvan II. The Ripper is his so-called supercomputer. In other Stamets-related developments, we met Dr. Hugh Culber, who has been revealed to be his partner. The Ripper is indeed the answer to saving the day, and those on Corvan II, but at what price to Lorca’s soul, Landry’s life, Stamets’ scientific integrity (and his nose), and to Burnham’s sense of right and wrong? And what of the Tardigrade, which shrieks and shudders in pain with each torturous trip to the reaction cube? Next on Discovery… In the new episode called "Choose Your Pain," Lorca unexpectedly finds himself in the company of a prisoner of war, Starfleet Lieutenant Ash Tyler (Shazad Latif), and a notorious intergalactic criminal, Harry Mudd (Rainn Wilson). Meanwhile, Burnham voices her concerns about the repercussions of the spore drive. This picture of Lorca must be from a scene set before what we see in the “Choose Your Pain” trailer, which depicts him being tortured in a style that suggests A Clockwork Orange meets TNG's “Chain of Command.” Not surprisingly, Lt. Saru and Burnham are still at odds. Wilson Cruz makes his second appearance as Dr. Culber. Worth Noting… Lifelong Star Trek fan Rainn Wilson makes his Discovery debut as Harry Mudd. “He's mischievous and deadly at the same time,” Wilson told StarTrek.com a few months ago. “And that's a fun balance to watch.” “Choose Your Pain” marks the first Discovery episode directed by Lee Rose. A stage actor turned screenwriter turned director, she counts among her many previous credits Weeds, The Glades, True Blood, Lost Girl, Haven Zoo, Grimm, Riverdale and Dynasty. Star Trek: Discovery streams Sunday nights on CBS All Access in the U.S. and Space Channel in Canada. The series streams on Mondays on Netflix in the rest of the world. View the full article

    Artwork looks nice. Many of the non-TNG posters looked awesome as well. I hate to be the one to state it, but the TNG crew poster should have included Wesley Crusher. He was based on Gene Wesley Roddenberry as a young man and Wesley Crusher played a significant role in many memorable TNG eps such as "The First Duty" and one of my personal faves, "Journey's End".

    I saw the documentary that his son did. In watching it, I realized that at the time Leonard Nimoy was born in Boston and at the hospital in which he was born, my grandmother was a nurse. So, my grandmother was most likely inside the hospital when he was born and if she wasn't there at the time, she was there not long after. He grew up not far from where my mother and her siblings grew up. We're talking about maybe half a mile to a mile in distance.

    It's been 6 years since our last upgrade, and it's time for a new one. I hope to have it completed within the next couple of weeks, but it's been so long since the last one, that a lot has to be done to prepare the site from a compatibility standpoint. I've created a STARTREKFANS Twitter account as well, and the new board platform will have enhanced social media connectivity, so look for some exciting changes coming to STF.

    I think that theory holds some weight especially with Trek's strongest periods coming in the front-end syndication eras (TNG, DS9). UPN is definitely the primary reason why Enterprise was cancelled. The network is a cinder block. I think Bakula's comment was very true when he said the irony was that Enterprise will still be watched on DVD (or whatever we have) in 20 years while most of UPN's other shows will be forgotten. I'm not going to say that Enterprise was always brilliant because it had bad episodes but every show in the history of television has done bad episodes. But I will never believe that Enterprise's quality was the over-riding factor in its cancellation. I don't care what anyone says. I guarantee if you put the greatest episode of Trek in Enterprise's time slot with next to no promotion and on a sixth rate network, it would do no better.

    I have yet to watch my season 6 downloads (no cable), but I previewed this episode! YES, EXTREMELY FUNNY! Also, here's 2 Trek referrences: Roswell "Secrets and Lies" Max, a main character, is off in LA looking for a 2nd shape shifting alien. (Long story! ) Anywho, to get access to Paramount Pictures, where he suspects the alien is possing as a producer, Max gets an agent and auditions for Enterprise! He auditions with John Billingsly out of makeup and Johnathan Frakes is there as the ENT director when he really directed the Roswell episode! Here's another! The Time Machine After Vox the "compendium of all human knowledge" ridicules Alex for thinking time travel is possible, Vox asks if there's anything else. Alex, the time traveler, says he'll try back in a few hundred years. Vox makes the Vulcan hand sign and says, "Live long and prosper!" followed by a TOS door sound effect! :lol: John Logan wrote the movie right before he wrote NEMESIS, thus him being a Trekkie, he stuck in the joke! So, anyone catch either of these? What else is there to look for?!
