"Dear Dorctor" and "Fortunate Son" rated higher than "Andorian Incident"?
I'm beginning to wonder if this is a joke thread with randomized ratings just to see how people react.
No, it's not.
"Andorian Incident" had plenty of action and it introduced Shran, but other than that, I didn't like it that much. There wasn't much to
like about it. It was very predictable and I hated the way Archer talked to T'Pol throughout, considering his development up to that point.
"Dear Doctor" finally fleshed out Phlox and spent some nice time developing his relationships. The "moral decision" may have been lackluster and the science of it didn't make much sense, but I'll take it. "Fortunate Son" likewise was predictable, but I liked it and appreciated having ECS featured prominently.
So technically you should be watching TOS's "The Cage" first if your going chronological order.
Why? In the internal chronology of the Star Trek
universe the events of Enterprise
come before The Cage
I am, however, saving "Regeneration" for after "First Contact."
