"In Purgatory's Shadow" it is. :)

Zeke 06-28-2012 08:58 PM

Yep. But I just now noticed evay had <i>her</i> title wrong too... the stegosaurus time loop is in "Future Tense", not "Cease Fire". Since her post otherwise made it clear that she had the right episode, and she got to post the next quote, the same should go for Sa'ar now. But from now on, it's title-way or the hightle-way.

So the current quote is the one Sa'ar posted earlier: "I hate temporal mechanics."

(Wowbagger: They were there because Garak had decoded what turned out to be a distress call from Tain. Did you make that pic?)

*doh* I was hoping you hadn't caught that before I fixed it. :) But yes, I screwed up.

Ah, yes. Sadly, no.

Of course, many starship captains have complained about time travel, but I don't remember anyone referring to the field as "temporal mechanics" until after TNG ended. My money's on Janeway, simply because VOY had so much time travel and Janeway complained about time travel episodes more than once.

"Shattered"? Next guess... "Year of Hell, Part I"?

Zeke 06-29-2012 07:18 AM

Nope. Remember, Sa'ar's VOY quotient is low. (I'm disqualified this round; I looked the quote up to see if it was in the same scene as another one I'd posted in the FB game earlier. It wasn't.)

It's non-zero, but very small.

*pause*

Didn't this board used to have buttons for font effects?

vBulletin is a flighty mistress -- that's why I've always allowed HTML. Use &lt;s&gt;.

Then let's go with DS9's greatest time travel hater: the Chief.

"Visionary." If it isn't that or "Past Tense" (I or II), I give up.

Sa'ar Chasm 07-01-2012 07:50 PM

That's the one, Visionary.

Thinking back on that episode, it's clear that the writers have absolutely no clue how causality works, and they threw in that "I hate temporal mechanics" line to lampshade the fact that the entire episode makes no sense.

Right, what's the next quote?

Zeke 07-03-2012 04:40 AM

Wowwwwwwbagger...

Hmm. Board needs a poke feature.

Wowbagger 07-04-2012 07:20 AM

WHOA. I got that right?

Yes, board much needs a poke feature. And I should probably just go ahead and make this thread my home page.

Next quote is... Hm.

"You people are even uglier than I remember."

NAHTMMM 07-04-2012 02:45 PM

Hmm. Clearly that's "Devil in the Dim", where the Mother Horta and Enterprise crew cross paths in a low-lit, smoky karaoke nightclub in the shady districts of Risa.

Or maybe it's the one where Riker is kidnapped and his mind messed with.

Wowbagger 07-05-2012 05:51 AM

Nope! But I really want to see that episode now. I assume it's TAS?

Zeke 07-06-2012 08:25 AM

Let's try Archer in "Azati Prime" again. Otherwise, it's probably an ugly alien talking about humans (Trek loves those little ironies). "Lonely Among Us"?

Actually, I just made that one up. But we should totally go back in time and convince someone to make it for TAS. And then go forward and get Gene Roddenberry drunk enough to allow it as canon.

It is Archer, but it's not "Azati Prime".

I assume all nonsense Star Trek plots were, in some permutation of some universe, made into a TAS episode.

Zeke 07-08-2012 11:36 PM

Hmmm! "Through a Mirror, Darkly"?

Wowbagger 07-09-2012 01:43 AM

Nope! Right season, though.

Zeke 07-09-2012 01:56 AM

"Babel One" or "United"? Archer had seen a Tellarite before...

Wowbagger 07-09-2012 03:10 AM

"Babel One" it is, and a Tellarite it is! You're up.
