    Just got into this with EP 1&2 definitely worth watching. We loved TNG & Voyager in the past.

    That's because he wasn't Canadian.

    The acting is poor.
    That's all I'm saying without my lawyer present...

    And be warned that my umbrella is now grounded. :p

    That would be preposterous! And just to show you how good he was, there's a line in The Doomsday Machine where he even puts on a perfect Canadian accent. Now that's quality.

    That’s a sign of just how great an actor James Doohan was. He could sound like a Scot who lived his whole life in Canada one second, then a native Scotsman the next.

    You guys are being a little unfair, ALL the accents have been bad. There is so much hamming in that space craft it is almost like "Pigs in Space"
    At least they have swerved away from Geordie and Scouse

    Oh please, please, please, please let there be a Scouse Romulan villian, one with a proper throat clearing Toxteth accent, not some airy fairy Crosby one...

    I don't mean to make light of the COVID-19 situation, as it's dire and unprecedented in my lifetime — but its spread is reminding me of that old Star Trek episode, The Naked Time.

    Mr. Spock and Joe Tormolen beam down to Psi 2000, a planet that's breaking up, to find that the researchers who were stationed there are all dead. What's worse, they look like they've gone bananas. Nothing as crazy as fighting over a loo roll, but they purposely shut down their life support system and froze to death.

    While looking at the dead researchers, ol' Joe removes his environmental suit glove to scratch his nose and accidentally comes in contact with a strange red liquid, presumably the same liquid that made everyone on the science base go nuts. Back on the ship a few hours later, Tormolen starts acting irrationally and in a scuffle with Sulu and Riley accidentally infects them.

    You can see where this heads. In a matter of hours almost the entire ship is infected including Mr. Spock.

    To make matters worse, Riley, who's also gone nuts, runs into engineering, locks the door then shuts off the warp engines. As the ship starts spiralling downward, Scotty realizes that he'll need 30 minutes to get the engines back online. But he only has minutes!

    Ah, but maybe there's a solution, one that requires slapping your first officer!

    It all turns out OK in the end, and I wish I could say the same about COVID-19.

    Blimey Joe, I'm going to be so bored (not much) working from home that a few little summaries a day like that will keep me doubly entertained!

    I needed a diversion between the stream of crazy last-minute tasks at work. We're shutting down until further notice.
