Series: Enterprise – Season Two
Trek Installment # 34
Viewing Date: October 14, 2009
This is really the first episode of Enterprise that felt like it could have been an episode of the original series. Something about a strange black hole having a mental effect on the crew really reminded me (for some reason) of “The Naked Time” and “This Side of Paradise.” It was well done, entertaining and well-rounded.
I liked the part when Archer speaks to T’Pol about his father’s biography. Beyond that, though, why did T’Pol grab Archer to help pilot the ship? This would have been a great opportunity to use Mayweather, who is the least obsessive of them all. She could have woken him despite the sedation. And Phlox doesn’t even apologize to the poor guy, either.
Decent episode, which is saying something as this season has been a major let-down thus far.
