Re: What are the core and best episodes?

I really enjoyed watching Enterprise Proving Ground S03E13 again.

Seeing the military tradition of the Andorians was what made it seem very realistic. The end result was plausible. There would be too much temptation to take the Xindi weapon.

Sure the Enterprise is on a mission of exploration, but they shouldn't be nervous about the military aspects of the crew or other crews. Post-Vietnam a good portion of Hollywood has been reticent to fairly treat military drama. That's a mistake. Not the unabashed patriotic flavor, but a measured response in which we see the warts and honor of military life. I'd like to see more of that.

More duty and dealing with military intrigue and captains working out the ethics of that.
