I grew up on TNG and then VOY and TOS. Pretty much anytime a TOS marathon was on my parents watched it. I didn't have much of a chance to watch DS9 but when ENT came out I got super excited. I groaned a little at first but it grew on me. I thought it was better than most people make it out to be. I thought Archer was near perfect. He really didn't know what he was doing because no one did. Everything was new and they were just starting to get a feel for it. I was disapointed that Merriweather didn't get much character devoplment. He seemed to exist to say 'course laid in' or 'aye sir'. I thought they he would have had more lines considering he was a space boomer and had more experience than everyone but T'Pol or possibly Phlox. But noooo, let's oversex the Vulcan.
The Xindi were okay. Except those shoddy looking Reptilians. And the insectoids that looked lost from Babylon 5. Overall I enjoyed the series. I got to see them all on HDNet a couple years back as I was in the Marines from 02-06 and missed many episodes. The ending was a slap in the face. CURSE YOU FAT RIKER!
I think the less Travis spoke, the better
. There were just some serious casting mistakes in that show. I liked Malcolm's character but the stereotypically stuffy Brit is just a little tired. Most Brits aren't like that at all, although I guess he comes from a poshy Royal Navy line. I would've liked Travis fine if he'd been more interesting - like Sgt. Greer from SGU.
