Now, on to the second half of the series opener. I liked the Soulabon (sp?) lady they met, and I was sorry to see that she died.
You know who that Suliban lady was? Melinda Clarke. She was the red haired mom on the O.C., she's a major role on Nikita and she played my favorite Firefly character, Nandi, from the episode Heart of Gold. I just LOVE her.




The Suliban, Sarin



Nandi, from Heart of Gold

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I saw Firefly, but I've never seen any Nikita. I loved her character there, too. She was the best Madame ever! And thanks for the spelling of Suliban.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Nikita has gotten so repetitious and silly I've had to give it up in season 2, despite the wonderful Melinda. The main character seems to have zero personality and the plot seems to be devolving into Alias style silliness. I may return to it when I run out of other stuff though as I need action television for the exercise bike.. Farscape isn't cutting it on that front.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I never could watch Farscape. It was a little too different for me. I don't know why, but it was. Everybody I know that likes Science Fiction and has watched it seems to like it though. As bad as it sounds, I like Science Fiction that doesn't seem too different.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I'm on episode 10. I'll take it up again soon, it's just more on the dialogue than I need for working out. It didn't seem different to me, rather very much more of the same. I'm hoping that changes. I am very patient about first seasons

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Well, you've probably watched more of it to be able to have that opinion. I only watched part of one episode. I tried again, and that time I didn't get past the intro. It got to the part where there's the evil looking guy in black leather with animal teeth, and I was like "No, that's okay." I hope you enjoy it. Please tell me what you think when you've seen the whole first season.

I try to be patient with first seasons, but I tend to give a series half a season if there's anything in the pilot that's worthwhile. After that, my patience has worn itself out. There are other things to do I guess.

With sci fi you need to be heroically patient at times..

Enterprise will reward you!

No, I just pretty much hate all other genres and I'm too low on my fix to be picky.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Babylon 5. Now that's old school if you're weaned on NuBSG but it's great. Story arcs, character development, SURPRISING developments (something Trek sucked at), politics, huge cast, grey area ethics, humor.. frankly if there was a fandom as active as Trek and a forum as active as this one devoted to Bab5 I probably wouldn't be here.

That said I did love NuBSG. I watched it recently in 5 weeks and I was quite obsessed with it, to the point of dreaming about it.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Oh okay, so I'm not so bad. I saw both of those. I saw Babylon 5 because I love DS9 and I heard it was based off of Bab5 to an extent (shame on Paramount). What I liked about Bab5 was the sheer number of ideas and themes that were being dealt with. It surpassed DS9 in that area. What I think DS9 did a little better was thoroughly working out the fewer themes and ideas it dealt with. Now I didn't see the movies, so I'm going to guess that this was done there. Just going off of the series, though, I think there were things that were left hanging. Like, I know that Leeta went with G'Kar, but we never got to see her (in the series) be able to control herself and find peace. We also didn't get to see Psi Corps destroyed (IIRC) and some kind of peace worked out between them and the "mundanes," with the outcast telepaths included and represented as well. That would have been nice. Still, I really enjoyed the series. It had some really great characters.

I thought nuBSG was good, and the last season and a half was just okay for me. There were some great twists in there, though. I didn't like the "triangle," or "quadrangle," or whatever it's called. Kara and Sam seemed to work itself out, but the rest of it was a mess.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I notice you commented on Treklit in the VOY forum..

(oops,that was alpha flyer.. well you may have my 2 cents anyway)

I will say that the Babylon 5 trilogy, "The Passing of the Technomages" was pretty much the best fiction I ever read. It soured me for Treklit big time because it was just so good. I also read the Psi Corp trilogy which very believably shows you the corp from genesis to present day as well as Bester's story. It's not as developed writing as the Technomages trilogy but it's incredibly satisfying.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Fight or Flight



This episode starts off alright, and it’s nice until we get to the part where Captain Archer decides to send over the coordinates to Earth’s star system without even getting past “Hello,” with a potentially new found species. That’s really bad, and it makes him look like he failed “Captain 101.” I know this is the first exploration mission for them, but even common sense should have kept him from that. What he did would be like going up to someone at a club and saying “Hi, here’s my home address and a map so you know how to get there,” before s/he even has the chance to say “Hello,” back. But at the same time, it’s the beginning and he’s learning.

I’m really not trying to keep saying things about Archer, but I didn’t like it when he was basically chewing out his second in command and the chief engineer during dinner over a command decision he made. He gave the order to resume their course, so if he had a problem with that then he should have taken that to his private quarters to either get over or rethink it. I hope to warm up to him, though.

It looks like Hoshi has some growing to do too. I would think that after seeing what was done to the other alien race, she wouldn’t hesitate to try to do what she could to get help, knowing that without that death was imminent. I think it’s too bad that she had to be kind of coddled into helping while the hull was being breached. When she tried, she ended up being able to speak pretty fluently, so I guess that worked out. They also made some friends, which was nice.


Grade: C minus


** I think I ‘m going to just give my overall impression of episodes and kind of group a few posts together from now on. **

@teacake
Thanks for the information, but I don't read the literature. I've only really read one fanfic writer for S/U, and that was enough for me. I tried another, but I stopped before I was halfway through the story. So, I'm happy with the one, especially since she's still writing.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Strange New World



This has been the best episode so far to me. They got to explore a new planet, and T’Pol got to be the hero. I felt sorry for Trip, and I really like the interaction he has with T’Pol at the end. It’s nice that everyone worked together to get past the danger of the situation. I’m also starting to think it’s T’Pol’s job to save them from themselves when necessary.

Grade: B
---------

Unexpected




I like Trip, and this was a nice episode for him. I liked the alien race they came across and the fact that they had the best (and first?) holographic suite humans had come across. I couldn’t believe Trip didn’t realize sooner that “the game” got him pregnant. T’Pol’s reaction was funny, “Three days, you were only there for three days…”

Grade: B
---------

Terra Nova




This one isn’t my favorite, but it had some bright spots.

Grade: C minus

----------------

The Andorian Incident




Well, lol, Andorians are a part of Star Trek canon. The first time I read about them was in fan fiction, and I thought the writer made them up. They don’t look like what I imagined. This is a small gripe, but I think T’Pol uses too many contractions. I’m still not a fan of Archer, but at this point I’m not holding that against the series.

Grade: B minus
