Star trek 

The borg are good and cool in exactly four trek eps:

Q Who - S02E16 (TNG)
The Best of Both Worlds, Part I - S03E26 (TNG)
The Best of Both Worlds, Part II - S04E01 (TNG)
I, Borg - S05E23 (TNG)

Every other time they show up in trek, they suck

Star trek 

@Taweret But what about-

Wait, you mentioned that episode. But what ab-

Oh, that one is in your list too.

I guess you got all of the good ones.

Star trek 

@morganth yep. turns out they should have dropped them forever after those four 🤷

Star trek 

@Taweret Wait, but First Contact. I’m only just thinking of it but it is in the top half of Trek movies IMO. Still can’t think of any other episodes I’d add to your list.

Star trek 

@morganth yeah i know some people like First Contact and if you like it then fine, but i just don't 🤷

Star trek 

@Taweret @morganth On the Trek Movie Scale, it's decent, but that's because a lot of Trek movies suck.

@RexfordGTugwell @Taweret I would agree with that. I think of myself as a Trek fan the same way as I am a James Bond fan, which is to say that I love it while admitting that most of it isn’t great.

Star trek 

@morganth @RexfordGTugwell yeah talking about trek on masto all this time has made me realize that when i say i'm a trek fan i really mean i like ds9, seasons 3-6 of tng, those 3 movies i listed and that's about it
(and discovery is okay i guess but i has issues and i hope ti gets better)

Star trek 

@Taweret @morganth TOS has a lot of problems, but there are a handful of episodes that are quite good.

Star trek 

@Taweret @RexfordGTugwell I haven’t watched any Discovery but I hope it raises the average.

Star trek 

@morganth @RexfordGTugwell it has pros and cons
i really like captain pike in season two
but there are issues like it wants everything to be Maximum Drama and Maximum Stakes All The Time and that kinda doesn't work because when Everything is at level 11 then level 11 becomes average
also the storytelling can get a little jumbled
but it has some nice moments too
