I have to say, I've always nursed a soft spot for the much-maligned DS9 kitbashes...

Can't say why, I just think they're cool. They are technically hideous mismatches of components of different sizes and eras, but whatever! I want them. *hugs them*

That's how I feel about the Nebula-class! If one considers that a kitbash? lol

Some kitbashes are ok, such as the Nebula and Centaur, but then there's the really crap-awful ones. The one that looks like Chakotay's Maquis fighter's rear-ended an Intrepid class comes to mind.

Those in the middle pix look like old school Cylon fighters.

The crazy kitbashes aren't just limited to the Feddie ships. If you've ever looked at the FASA Klingon ships it's like..."what were these dudes smoking when they thought these up?"

However, on the modeling forums I'm on I have seen some really really cool bashes of both the Feddie and the vastly superior Klingon Empire!!!

There is NOTHING to feel guilty about on that one; it is one of the best episodes of Star Trek in all the runs of all the series IMO. It's in my personal top ten (of all of ST).

I have only seen VERY few people disliking that episode (they mostly called it a rip-off of "The Inner Light", which, IMO, isn't the case), so, this one's really generally regarded as one of DS9's finest episodes. I used to like it better years ago than I like it these days, but it sure ain't a bad episode.

It is the definitive Ben/Jake episode of DS9, IMO.

And it only adds to the WTF fact of Sisko not even saying goodbye to Jake in the final episode of the show. IMO.

On an after note to that episode...the actress who played Kirk's training Thrall, Angelique Pettyjohn, made several porn movies afterwards. I guess the Jiffypop outfit and Kirk's wooing did a number on her!!!

Wow. Thats news to me. But also, did you know the enterprise stars in a lot of Sehlat's shipporn galleries? :P

Ship porn... truly the safest sex out there. :P:giggle:

A talented writer can turn ANYTHING into an NC-17 rated story. I've seen shuttle/shuttle slash. :P

Sorry... I couldn't resist. :giggle:

Stuff like that is exactly what I was talking about. :P

How evil empires propagate:

Imperial Shuttle: "Did anyone ever tell you that you're strong with the dark side of the force?"

Warbird: "Oh just shut up and dock already, will you?"

Oh my.

NOW I need a cigarette. :P

I'm not sure I have something to contribute to the list. Most of what I like seems to be liked generally by fans. Perhaps one ep I like a lot that doesn't get much attention is The Perfect Mate, the episode in which Famke Janssen guest stars as the mate intended for some troglodyte but she bonds with Picard instead. Not only was it cool from the sense of watching two actors who would then work again in X Men but Famke simply exuded so much sensuality without being sexual or vulgar. She actually didn't even look that pretty in that episode compared to how drop dead gorgeous she is. Like an Inara precursor.

Ah, Famke...*sigh*

Neither A Perfect Mate nor Famke Jannsen should be on any "guilty pleasure" list. Both the episode and Famke herself are just pure pleasure; nothing to be guilty about there.

Is Lwaxana that much of a guilty pleasure? What, because she's more comedy than action? I think she's great. So much more vibrant of a character than either Number One (The Cage) or Nurse Chapel. She's genuinely funny. Also, when she does the drama (sad clown laughing to hide her pain) stuff as Lwaxana, it always worked for me.

And people hate Leeta? She's a minor character, but I totally agree that the mismatch of hot cheerleader and Rom the loveable toad actually worked and became believable.
