TrekCulture is back with their “10 Star Trek Episodes Which Didn’t Work” video.
TrekCulture is back on our page but this time it’s not for anything good, with their video for the 10 Star Trek Episodes Which Didn’t Work. In the video, the host narrates the ten Star Trek episodes that failed to find the proper notes to make the episode into something spectacular.
The usual list of failed attempts make the list, your Spock’s Brains and such. There was no Threshold from Voyager, so don’t go into this thinking the video is about the worst episodes, as it isn’t. This is a video about the episodes which had promising ideas but failed to deliver.
So there are going to be some episodes on here that fans like, but most of them are episodes that with a simple change here or there could’ve been much better than what we ended up getting.
While not spoiling #1 on the list, what we will say about it is that there was no real way to make it work, as it didn’t fully need to happen.
The one that we most agree with, however, is the Deep Space Nine episode “Let He Who Is Without Sin…”. Trying to make Worf an eco-terrorist was all sorts of weird and wrong. A Klingon so honorable would never stoop to such dastardly deeds.
What should’ve happened was Worf trying to enjoy his time on Risa with Jadzia Dax but his inability to be comfortable is the constant problem. Instead of trying to ruin the planet or his relationship with Jadzia, it should’ve depicted that to Worf, relaxation meant something different.
It should’ve been an episode played for laughs sure, but of also understanding that people unwind and decompress in their own ways. Shoehorning Worf into a terrorist group was just absurd.
