I found the latest episode fine myself. I was actually far more dissatisfied with the resolution to the last story arc. Actually I've had issues with the resolutions to both the last two story arcs. In both cases it felt like there was a lot of missing background information and things were resolved too easily.

I did find Hilde's actions strange. If she wasn't planning to steal it, why didn't she give it back immediately?

I'm under the impression the yacht Club is going on a training run using windsurfing to get them use to some conditions they might encounter with their small one man boats you see them using in the simulators. The ones that look like they have a huge sail on top.

Plus considering how much water this planet seems to have, that sort of training might make sense.

And yes I also think in the next episode man will lead to the Yacht Club then what? A yacht race? or so is that his will be a drive to go sailing? XD

And for the race "Nebula's Cup" will be in his space I guess? haha And is that his will be an opportunity to review Chiaki Barbalussa to control for this race? You imagine Barbalusa VS Bentenmaru

Your 2nd point alone places them in the flagship category.

PLUS, Marika may not be a great person, or a great student, but because she is not the kind that gets everyone killed. On that alone, she is a good captain.

Ah, good ol' Nog.
Note that Marika is a honors student/A grade student i.e. Marika can rival Red Squad's academic performance.

Red Squad seems to have issues with critical thinking and more interested with regulations and following orders. They wouldn't make it on Picard's Enterprise i.e. they ussually question thier orders. Military type Captain Jellico didn't like Picard's crew dynamics.

IIRC her grades took a massive nosedive - can't recall if she's managed to bring them back up.

Marika is smart, but she only managed to get her grades by lots of focused studying.

Only with the quiz. Her quiz scores are said to be improving.

Yes she is intelligent and if I remember correctly she wants to study higher? So I guess she wants to go to the University of space! : p

Perhaps follows Jenny. Lynn has stated that Marika is similar to Jenny (minus yuri part...).

BTW, Jenny should have perfect scores too, and I also remember that when Kane was checking out the Yacht Club members' profiles Jenny had all her stats maxed out (in contrast with Lynn's and a few others that were shown) which means that she's not only a prodigy academically, but also physically. That makes her solo escape with the Silent Whisper more believable, specially all those stunts she pulled off while dealing with those MIBs.

I agree. It was... meh. I was expecting some dash towards the Space University with the Bentenmaru being chased the whole way.

"Red Squad" was a little too regimented, formal, and military-like, by Star Fleet standards. Even Kirk's era Star Fleet standards when they were in the middle of a Cold War with the Klingons. Even if Star Fleet was at war with the Dominon at the time. Also they had too large of an ego based on their positioning. Though they did get the cool, new ship (USS Valiant) for a training cruise (rather unusual to have cadets on a ship like that rather than an older vessel). Even in Star Trek II, the USS Enterprise was a cadet training ship...she was pretty much one of the best ships in the fleet still at that point, but she was still 40 or so year old.

Red Squad did try to pull a Kirk, but they were in way over their heads and experiance levels. They also didn't follow all the standard Kirk procedures as they didn't follow all the options...especially since, unlike in Kirk's day, they could likely find backup starships to help them with their problem. In Kirk's day, if there was more than one Starship in the region there was something major going on. In Sisko's time...and time of war, there are dozens, if not hundreds of starships in the region. One was even relatively nearby looking for them. They failed due to unwarrented overconfidence. Even the new movie Kirk wouldn't quite do something that foolhardy. Well...he might, but he'd place the safety of his ship and crew first (over his own life) unless it meant directly saving a Federation planet.

The Yacht Club has a rather nice training ship, even if it is maybe 200 years old. It has been upgraded somewhat to the point were they were able to handle the Bentenmaru with only a hastely made training manual. Though the Bentenmaru is not as old as the Odette II, both were probably upgraded in a similar fashion with similar technology in their days as Privateers serving in the War. Partially proven when they found parts that would work on the Odette II in the stores of the Bentenmaru.

But...why such old tech? Intergrated circuits seems old tech...but vaccum tubes? We haven't used those for hardly anything in my lifetime with only the older television screens being vacuum tube types. But certainly not the old style computer vaccum tubes of the 1950s.

A much-needed vacation and repo it is clear, but even if in the next episode they go to the beach ... Looks like his have will not be restful for Marika ...

It's unfortunate that Chiaki will not be there, I would love to see her in a swimsuit!

Maybe they're photo-quantum transregulators which just happen to look like 20th century vacuum tubes.

I cooked it up actually. Its a bit of a running gag to come up with references to Star Trek when it comes to MoP, thanks to the nerdgasm that was the 1st 6 episodes, and how Marika has a bit of every Starfleet captain ever to grace the screen.

So what I did was invert the entire MoP premise like the Mirror Universe of Star Trek.

Spot on right there.

As for the old tech, how do we know its actually "old tech"? Just because its not isolinear chips or DNA gelpacks doesn't mean the technology it resembles is actually the technology making it work.
