most violent episodes (& TV Parental Guidelines rating system)
 
Since Enterprise was the most recent Trek on television I was just wondering how far did Brannon/Braga push it for violence on broadcast television?
The DVDs are Rating: NR (Not Rated).
I did not watch the series during the broadcast on UPN.

I had started another thread called TV Parental Guidelines system episodes initial run on UPN but only found out from miraclefan about some in the 3rd season.
I would be interested from a perspective of Paramount Studios and violence on recent a television show for broadcast television.
I'm not talking about a body count like 3000 aliens vaporized on a planet like that episode near the end of season 1 but on-screen violence.

What episodes would have been rated TV14 for the violence not the language?

I don't remember any episodes of ENT being more violent than other Star Trek series. Even the infamous airlock scene does not compare to the TNG episode where Picard was tortured by the Cardasians. I think most all of the TV14 ratings of ENT were for language.

Is there any Trek website that lists the episodes and their TV Parental Guidelines rating for broadcast TV?

Well, Reed and Hayes kicking the crap out of one another in "Harbinger" is certainly one of the most violent moments in Trek history.

And there was a lot of gore in "Fight Or Flight".

Impulse (the Vulcan Zombie episode) has some mild violence.

I recall a couple of shocking murders, and they way they were filmed and shown might have upped the rating.

"The Council," when Dolim stabs Degra.

"The Aenar," when the Romulan shoots Gareb point-blank in the throat.

Archer got the piss beat out of him in nearly half the episodes of seasons 1 and 2.

Tucker in the agony booth? That was pretty uncomfortable to watch.

Malcolm being severly beaten by the Suliban was pretty Shocking. I mean he was beaten to within an inch of his life T'Pol as wellby chemical means wanting to know where Archer had disappered to. In Shockwave part2. Hoshi being kidnapped by the reptellian xindi and that was really hard to watch her struggle to fight against them when they used that parasite to control her .i wish they'd shown how Hoshi had dealt with the aftermath of her experience.

I used to think Enterprise was a bit violent, but it's all perspective. Now that I'm an SPN fan, ENT doesn't faze me at all when it comes to violence. :lol: No comparison.

hoshi being tortured by dolim and her attempt at suicide rather then giving in.

Tough MACO soldier getting beat up (badly) by a skinny Andorian girl in her underwear!

A scene that always looked hastily re-edited to me... FX budget gone, or on taste and decency reasons, maybe for dramatic emphasis on Scott's reaction.

The climax of Terra Prime, when a crewman who sympathises with the xenophobic movement commits suicide in front of Archer. Not sure the mess a phase pistol would create to the guy's head, but presumably more horrific than Valeris' close range stun of Burke and Samno in Star Trek VI.

But we didn't see that, did we? :confused:
