It might take as much *total* energy to replicate an entire engine
block as to replicate the parts--but that's irrelevant if they can't
produce all the energy needed in one burst.

Yeah, they seem to think that making up a pseudo-scientific problem
and then spending 50 minutes trying pseudo-scientific solutions
constitutes a watchable plot.  It doesn't.  The pseudo-science should
simply propel them *into* the real conflict.

The story about B'Lanna being split into her Klingon and Human halves
is the sort of "technobabble" I can accept.  The notion of splitting
her into two separate beings is as unlikely as everything else they've
done--but I was willing to grant the premise in order to see how the
character dealt with the problem.  (Unfortunately, she dealt with it
by having everything made okay again by more super-science.  Yuck.)

 A great theory with only 2 minor flaws... I don't know much
 about sliders... and I heard they were cancelled   .

 Maybe O'Brien beamed him through time and space to DS9.

 Or Scotty came by in that shuttle he has been wandering
 around in and rescued him.

 Maybe he is hiding in Kosh's encounter suit.

 He's sharing a curry with Lister on the Red Dwarf.

 He is really a Shambala master and slipped through to
 Shambala to wait this one out, only to reappear later when
 things "cool down" in the boxcar.

-> But the Romulans and Cardassians and Klingons didn't have anything ca
-> beating the Borg either -

Wrong!!! The Klingons have a weapon that could be lethal to the Borg. The weapon
could easily defeat them. It is called Blood Seed. I forget the episode but in
TNG all of some planets lifeforms were being eradicated. The Enterprise was on
some goose-chase looking for DNA. The Klingons had beaten them there, got the
DNA and, destroyed the planet with Blood Seed a life devouring plasma. The
Klingons could fire it at the Borg, the Borg would see it as not a threat, it
would thereby destroy all DNA and render the ship inert. Klingons 1 - Borg 0!

  You do have to admit, though, Rhys-Davies was a BIG part of that
  show's appeal.  I most emphatically did NOT like Quinn or Wade when
  the show started up; I got to where I liked Wade two or three episodes
  in, and I was finally starting to like Quinn just as they offed him.
  But Arturo and Rembrandt had me hooked - if not for them, I wouldn't
  have stuck around for the first hourly episode.

  The fax was a daily news digest from Broadcasting & Cable Weekly

  show is dead, but it may still be forthcoming.

-> I really enjoyed the series and i'm sorry to see it go. But at least
-> seaQuest is still on! It is much more exiting, and weirder. BTW do you know
-> if there are more than three seaQuest books. I've only found the first three
-> and they are all about last years cast.

I haven't found season 2 of SeaQuest as much to my liking as you have.
However, I am an optimist about science fiction on TV so I'm hoping the story
lines change to more hard science and less fantasy next season.  Earth 2 was,
for me, a series with greater promise--especially since so much of it was shot
on location.  I much prefer that approach to the virtually 100% studio shoot of
SeaQuest.

Re: The Demise of Earth 2

I wonder if the series failed, in part, because not one of the characters was
exceptionally strong.  A powerful Matriarch or Patriarch figure sometimes helps
along with, perhaps, a smaller "core" of key players.  We may laugh at Cpt.
Kirk from the original Star Trek because he was so much larger than life but at
least you knew what he stood for and he made decisions and took the
consequences.  In Earth 2, leadership was much more ambiguous and quavering.
Maybe this played a part??

-> Not me this series is not what the fans I knew wanted and the Writing was

-> I thought it might be good when I first saw the Pilot but it look more like
-> a Paranoid Lost in Space and Yates was the Robot "warning , warning this
-> show lacks"

You take a strong position and defend it fairly well.  The series that will
last has power-packed stories and characters that stand out.  Maybe the Earth 2
figures were diluted a bit too much because we never got to really care so much
about any one of them.  Geez, Morgan stood out--and he was a pain much of the
time.  Maybe if Danzigger led a bit more things might have turned out
differently.  Who knows??

That's the point, isn't it, a promise unfulfilled seems to be a frequent
post-mortem comment on Earth 2.  The delays and preempted slots just made the
matter worse.
