->The deep, bloody gashes left on Kevin’s soul from his cold-hearted family forgetting about him [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yh7-wAy_8ss never healed]] and he goes on about how the whole thing traumatized him...He’d totally grow up to be an unhinged, greasy, chain-smoking, Faces of Meth poster boy who only feels happiness when he slowly tortures criminals. I mean, your family forgetting about you once will mess you up, and your family forgetting about you twice will turn you inside/out. I bet that Dexter’s dad forgot about him a couple of times and that’s the real reason why he was the way he was.

->he fact is that none of us are as innocent and wide-eyed as we were when we first saw Christopher Reeve save Lois from a burning helicopter while telling her that [[FunnyAneurysmMoment air travel is safer than driving]]. You're not getting that feeling back, people. It won't happen. It died along with all of the other things that made life worth living such as hope, a sense of wonder, and being able to eat all the candy you wanted without getting sick.

->... Bashir's speech questions whether we humans are as great as we like to think; that, if push comes to shove, we could wind up ''back'' in this predicament if things got bad enough. Are we really that evolved then? or it just easy to believe that you when there are no challenges to the contrary? when you don't have to face a crisis or problem without [[BlackAndWhiteMorality a straightforward answer?]] I suppose the case could be made that the interpretation of the PrimeDirective in this [phase] of the shows illustrates this very well: 'I'd rather let a planet be wiped out than risk taking action, because doing the right thing might theoretically lead to some wrong, and it's hard to talk about how great you are when you have a guilty conscience!'\\\

->When [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Leonard McCoy]] accidentally forgot his communicator at the end of "A Piece of the Action", it was a goofy joke. It was an excuse for Kirk to give the episode a [[SchiffOneLiner nice punchline]]. It was very transparently a silly ending to a silly episode, one that was not intended in an entirely serious manner. However, "The Communicator" takes what was a goofy punchline and plays it entirely (and grimly) straight... The franchise has reached a point where it treats everything with a level of seriousness that would make [=McCoy’s=] mistake abhorrent [[EverybodyLaughsEnding rather than endearing.]]

->To be honest, I have generally defended ''Man of Steel''. Why? Well, first I think its bad reputation is a little exaggerated. The fact is that none of us are as innocent and wide-eyed as we were when we first saw Christopher Reeve save Lois from a burning helicopter while telling her that [[FunnyAneurysmMoment air travel is safer than driving]].

->Bashir continues one of Ira Stephen Behr's challenges to the [[GeneRoddenberry Roddenberry]] ideal... The view with the [[FantasticGhetto Sanctuary District]] is that this is the 'bad' necessary for the 'good' to emerge one day. But Bashir's speech questions whether we humans are as great as we like to think. That, if push comes to shove, we could wind up ''back'' in this predicament if things got bad enough.

The Sanctuary District ignores the problem as the Prime Directive ignores problems. The difference being, I don't think anyone sees the Sanctuary Districts as a sign of their own ''enlightenment''.

->Not since the last ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'' episode that I watched have I wanted to [[DopeSlap slap somebody around the chops with a freshly caught trout that is still wet and slimy]] as much as Courtney Peldon’s Farris. She is the epitome of everything that is wrong with Starfleet: unwavering arrogance, the ability to look down her nose at everybody that isn’t a member of Starfleet and a square vision. There is more than a touch of [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Picard]] in this character and to top it off Peldon plays the role with an atrociously wooden superiority. Frankly if she didn’t die in the climax I would have demanded a refund for my box set... But I am much more favourable towards it because of Mike Vejar’s urgent direction and Ron Moore’s refusal to allow these [[EnsignNewbie supercilious kiddiewinks]] have a happy ending. It's probably the best ‘[[CargoCult crazy cult]]’ episode that ''Star Trek'' has ever attempted because this time it's personal and the attack is against the Federation itself... The way it refuses to take the ''Star Trek'' route of [[DeusExMachina everything turning out for the best]] is commendably downbeat (had this been ''Voyager'' they would be at home hugging their parents by the end)

->As with "Strange New World", it seems like "Fusion" might be drawing attention how particular [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries relics of the sixties]] look four decades later..."Fusion" is an episode that rejects the idea of ''“infinite diversity in infinite combinations.”'' It’s an episode that suggests that perhaps certain avenues are best left unexplored, and perhaps a stern society does know best when it sets cultural norms. When Archer wonders about T’Pol spending so much time with Tolaris, Trip off-handedly reflects, ''“She likes being around her own kind. Who doesn’t?”'' If that is the case, why bother exploring? If people just want to stay together with their own kind, then what’s the point of reaching out into the void? Surely it is to make new friends and seek new experiences?\\\
Trip’s sentiment seems a little narrow-minded, and quite in keeping with the mood of "Fusion". Indeed, while the episode plays lip-service to the idea of exploring new possibilities, it does so in such a way that makes the open-mindedness seems stupid and reckless. Archer and Phlox both put pressure on T’Pol to try to explore new possibilities, despite her reluctance. Both are blind about her own discomfort and unconcerned with the possible risk. Both are ultimately proven wrong.
