Terra Nova and Silent Enemy: both are clunky, with some major writing issues, but do a lot to set up the mood of the series as a whole. I would even suggest that they set up major season 4 episodes: the Romulan trilogy and Demons/Terra Prime.
Favorite overall: Cold Station 12.
I did enjoy "Silent Enemy" a lot when I watched it, but like you, I too agree that the writing could have been more taut.
