Re: Treking through all Star Trek

Series: Enterprise - Season One
Episode: “Terra Nova”
Trek Installment # 5
Grade: D-
Date: September 16, 2009

Because the caverns sets from “Strange New World” just weren’t awesome enough for one episode, we needed to have them in TWO! The episode pushes the limit on the plausibility scale. I can not imagine a civilization falling apart so much in just 70 years and that fact alone kills the already clichéd characters (stubborn grandma, cautiously trusting middle-aged man, angry youth) and boring plot.

Again, Enterprise simply does not take advantage of the potential here. Just with “Unexpected,” the episode could have been so much better. It could have been a great story about the dangers and politics of colonization. The backstory about Captain Mitchell and Mark Logan would have been made for a more interesting and intriguing story than what was delivered.
