'''Garak:''' Tragedy is not the word I'd use. 'Farce' would be more appropriate.

->''"''Star Trek'' Chiefs of Security were never the most efficient characters, I’ll acknowledge that. [[TheWorfEffect Worf]] would often be physically overpowered to prove the credibility of the week’s threat. However, Yar seemed to always get in a bit more trouble than that. The first season of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' seemed to be powered by the bridge crew’s incompetence, and Yar suffered a bit from that. The crew were more incompetent than they would eventually become, so Yar ended up being [[TooDumbToLive spectacularly incompetent.]]"''

->''"Just when I was saying that Chakotay had lost his way, the writers come along and make him [[WeCanRuleTogether a cult worshipper of a man with Godlike powers!]] It's not a shift in his favour and I was waiting patiently for the script to hit me with its ‘[[FakeDefector he was pretending all along]] so they could escape’ which never came. No, he really is as daft as he appears. ''[Robert]'' Beltran fails to convince on any level and when I read recently that he felt contempt for how the writers used his character [[CreatorBacklash I could actually sense that]] in this episode...it plays out in a way that he was simply charmed and had his ego stroked by an old man. When he starts playing about with simulations I was convinced he was perfectly stupid...‘I thought we were working to ''avoid'' more destruction!’ Chakotay you nob jockey ''any'' changes you make will [[ButterflyOfDoom cause destruction somewhere]]…"''

->''"So the plot is that someone's trying to kill Amidala for no reason, and Anakin and Obi-Wan are assigned to protect her. So, she doesn't sleep in an interior bedroom of this building with no window where it's safer, but rather in a room where the blinds are half-open in a city where nine hundred quadrillion people can see her--especially the robot that's here to kill her. They say they're doin' this so [[TheBait she can be bait to lure out the assassin]]--but she turns off any camera surveillance so she can have her privacy. Is that [[TooDumbToLive more important than your life, you dumb bimbo?]] You could at the very least aim the cameras at the windows, 'cause that's the only way in! ...Also, it's revealed in a bit that this assassin is a shapeshifter, which could very well be ''the most advantageous attribute that an assassin could possibly have''. But instead he went with the whole '[[BeeBeeGun bugs through the window]]' approach. Y'know, [[ComplexityAddiction the classic.]]"''

->'''Chris''': Towards the end of the movie, it’s revealed that Kayla [[FakingTheDead wasn’t really dead]] (SURPRISE!), and that Sabretooth just drugged her and poured about a coffee cup’s worth of blood onto her shirt.

'''Matt:''' Or, you know, [[LongList waited for police to arrive, had a coroner check her out, attended a funeral, seen to her burial, etc.]]\\
'''Chris''': I get that he’s going to be hot on the trail for revenge, so I’m not expecting him to call in [=CSI=] ([[CanadaEh Canadian]] Scene Investigators) or anything, but you’d think he would’ve become pretty darn familiar with stab wounds in general and Sabretooth’s handiwork in particular at some point over the past 130 years.
