I think there's not enough Porthos. That's what I think.

Re: Porthos

I wish Porthos could have helped defend the ship during Season 3. I think it would have been really cool if rocket launchers could have deployed out of his sides and then fire as some type of defense mechanism or something.

I mean, I think it really would have ramped up the Xindi Arc if you ask me.

Re: Porthos

Why don't we just have a K-9 squad of German Shepards and Dobermans that get set loose in the corridors every time there's an intruder. Kind of like on "Hogan's Heros" when they unleash the dogs every time there's an escape. That would scare the hell out of unsuspecting aliens.

TATV would have had quite a different outcome, I think.

Unless it's a K-9 squad as in a squad of replicas of K-9, in which case they'd run down their battery power after a few laser blasts. But it would give us that rumored Doctor Who/Enterprise crossover for a few seconds.

Excellent. Or Colonel Klink yelling "After them! After them!"

Just saw that this afternoon. The 60's had some great TV.

Off topic, but I remember a Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover comic.

Near the end, Beta (Data) threw some sort of grenade at the enemy, K9 went to go fetch it, Beta went after him, and they ended up with a hybrid "Beta 9" after they put their parts back together.

Re: So what are you reading now? (Part 3)

There was also a book called "The Doctor and the Enterprise", a fanfic illegally published without the permission of the author, Jean Airey. It's a TOS/Tom Baker Doctor/Darkover crossover.
I grabbed the fanfic online, grabbed a scan of the cover (which tries to make the story look like a parody -it isn't) of the published version, rammed the lot though Calibre and read it on my e-book reader.

Much fun.

Reed: "Captain! We have intruders on deck 5!"
Archer: "Red Alert! Seal off deck 5!"
Archer: "Malcolm. Release the hounds."
Reed: "With pleasure sir!"
Intercom: Sounds of screams from deck 5.

Re: Porthos

You know. This almost sounds like a mirror-universe sort of thing. Instead of relatively humane phasers and other weapons, the security force is comprised of various squads or packs of vicous animals that tear apart the intruders. Very messy. Maybe they could flood a section and send in meat-eating sharks or piranha fish. And switch the gravity off. How about a security protocol where the gravity is rapidly switched from zero gravity to ten times gravity. That would look funny as hell.

Re: Porthos

Yeah, I always wondered about the Grav plating scene with the Gorn (i.e. In A Mirror, Darky). I mean, why didn't we see any other Captains try to subdue hostile intruders by increasing the gravity ten fold?

Re: Porthos

Robert Orci was asked if the Admiral Archer mentioned was the same person as Captain Jonathan Archer in ENT, and if the prized beagle mentioned in the movie was actually the same beagle from the series. He confirmed both: Admiral Archer mentioned in the movie is meant to be Jonathan Archer, and that technology had made it possible to extend the lives of dogs, and the prized beagle mentioned was meant to be the same dog as in the series. He's said this more than once.

Incidently, in TATV, Porthos didn't look like he aged a day compared to when he was seen last seven years prior and was moving around well, so that could be a little bit of support to what Orci said.
