My dad doubted it would make it to 7 seasons after watching the aforementioned Blockbuster VHSes, and I sometimes also wonder why he wasn't right.But now compared with TNG and DS9 its just an Enterprise-esque void. I am always left wondering how on earth it got to 7 seasons.
Going to be interesting to see later seasons where I go "oh yeah" episode by episode.

Interesting; that SG-1 episode certainly also feels very TOS in character, but I'd say they're thematically different enough that they didn't leap out to me as that similar (in "The Thaw" for once it's the villain who gets faked out with 'you thought you'd escaped'! - just like the second Moriarty episode on reflection). My main memory of the SG-1 one is Reg Barclay running away from our heroes near the end with his cloak dramatically swept around him in a way that slightly spoilt the suspension of disbelief.Speaking of Stargate, despite differences in execution I always count "The Thaw" as one of those Star Trek/Stargate recycled plots since it bears some similarities to "The Gamekeeper" of SG1.
