As a TOS fan, myself, season 4 was my favorite. I did like all the fanwanking.
Yes! When I first heard of the premise of ENT, I said, "Dumb idea, but maybe us rabid Trekkie fanboys will get an occasional fanwank episode, like 'How the transporter was invented' or 'Why don't starships have seatbelts?'". Instead, we got 2 seasons of TNG Lite, 1 season of Dominion War: The Prequel, and one season of godd ol' wank. Well, one out of four ain't bad, I guess.....

...ahem......

....okay, not really......

I overall liked ENT. The premise of it being before Kirk, the prime directive, etc. definitely had a lot of potential. It didn't fully deliver and is arguably the weakest of the Star Trek series, but I honestly don't think it deserves all the flack it gets either. Yes, they should have gone ahead with the Romulan War before doing the Xindi story, yes, there was some bad writing in quite a few episodes, but the cast was awesome and overall still enjoyable, cool, and Trek. While as fans we do need to analyse flaws and errors, to naysay or not support any Trek is to not support the franchise, hence ENT was cancelled.

Hey Star don't you think Bowie would make a great Trek villain? In the style of Soran in Generations? Or Weyoun.. or a Section 31 agent.

Let's start a campaign! Imagine if Bowie was the villain in ST:XIII!

Re: ENT Forum Get To Know You Thread Pt 2

Hello, I am new to the ENT Forum!

Although I have a few major quibbles with the show (neuropressure anyone ), I do love it. Mostly because the characters are very human and the ENT world isn’t perfect. And they have Shran.

I adore character-centred episodes, such as Shuttlepod One and Minefield.

Besides ENT, I like TOS, DS9 and the new movie.

A bat? I wouldn't have guessed.

I think I might have seen flying foxes when I was in Australia. Didn't know they were vegetarians though.

And now I know where that Australian band got their name. Heh.

We have gazilions of flying foxes, there are dense inner city suburbs where they are hanging in trees and flying overhead at dusk. They are pretty cool. And huge.

That's a bat? He is indeed very very cute.

Is this what the little guy is going to grow into?



Boy, I've been here for over a year and this is the first time I've posted in the get-to-know-you thread. I should be ashamed of myself.

Hi and welcome to all newcomers!

Yep, he'll spread his lil wings once he can get out of his straight jacket swaddling, I imagine. I use the pics as stand-ins for alien pictures in some of my writing, but I have to hide the wings as I'm writing aliens with hands, opposable thumbs, etc. Going for kind of a doggy version of Caitians, standard humanoid size, too.

Very, very alien-looking, no (sorry for the big pic)?

Thanks!

I just have to say, I find your avatar strangely alluring. I can't stop looking at it.

Would you mind telling me which episode it's from?

Me neither! I love Captain Archer with Klingon ridges. As Trip said, he looks intimidating.

It's from the season 4 Klingon two-parter, "Affliction/Divergence". It's actually a cropped version of a publicity photo from TrekCore.com.

Those are ridges! And here I was thinking they were shadows.

Thanks for answering my question. And thanks for wearing that intimidating avatar, mmm.
