Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Desert Crossing


This one seemed like it would be kind of bad right off the bat. It wasn’t all bad, though. Okay, here’s something that keeps getting to me. How are they able to eat food from all over the place and never get sick? Everyone’s food agrees with them? Even here we have people that are lactose intolerant and/or have celiac disease, not to mention various allergies. And that’s eating our own food. With this being the first team searching around, it just doesn’t make any sense. Well, that’s enough from me. Here’s to the “essence” of male alien animals.

Grade: C minus

It's the gastric equivalent of the Universal Translator. The Vulcans gave it to earth so humans would stop ruining diplomatic dinners by getting the runs.

As to Desert Crossing, the whole point is when they take off their shirts. Nothing else matters.

In Star Trek, every alien can reproduce and eat each other's food.

In Stargate, 99% of the universe is populated by English-speaking humans.

Sci-fi's funny sometimes.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I'm sticking with the gastric translator. You all can make up the breeding techno babble

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Really as quick as I usually am to jump in on Enterprise's flaws, I gotta give them a pass on this one. All of Trek is guilty of this one. Gastric translator? Why not?

As for the breeding, medical technobabble at it's best. Phlox was able to do some magic to let T'Pol and Trip breed. Bashir the same with Jadzia and Worf. Unless we want to think one of them invented a "embryonic translator" or something.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Thing is, if you really want to make some medical sense avec breeding, etc., you need to think test tube babies and surrogates. Which means that plot devices like unwanted babies and unknown fathers (except for stealing sperm, eek, why oh why did I go there?) cannot, by definition, exist.

Gastric translator = 22nd century Immodium.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I guess for me, I always thought that because Starfleet had been in contact with alien races for well over a century starting with TOS, that meant that it was known what agreed with our systems and what didn't, and obviously you don't eat what doesn't. If there's some kind of pill or potion that can be taken so that food can be eaten universally, then why did the tactical officer have to take something specific just so he could eat pineapple? I guess my thing is, in order to have a pill or injection that makes all foods alright, you'd have to know about those foods to create that pill or injection, right? Since this is the first mission/voyage, how could that have happened? I don't think the Vulcans gave them such a pill or what have you because they've already come across people that the Vulcans never met (like in this episode?). Even the TOS people were (also) charting unknown territory, and I don't think they ate the food from every planet they came across that had inviting races, but I haven't seen the whole of that series so I could be wrong.

I dunno, I just thought it was weird. I guess it comes down to what Skywalker said: Sci fi is funny sometimes.

EDIT: And not to keep thinking about it, but they could at least scan the food with their tricorders (or whatever they are in this era) to see if it would be agreeable. That would make sense.

Two Days and Two Nights


Not much to say. It was okay. The only person that truly had a good time was Hoshi. Good for her. As a side note, the actress that plays Odo’s love interest in “A Simple Investigation” is featured in this episode.

Grade: C

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

The alien woman with the dog Archer was flirting with completely creeped me out. And not just because she was eeevil.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Yeah after so many episodes of them heading to Risa and getting sidetracked the "payoff" was little more than a gag episode with little substance. Reed and Tucker get mugged by two aliens men they thought were women, Archer get seduced by a spy and her dog, and Hoshi shows a random alien how good a tongue she has. Yay?

From the way the food managed to keep the atmosphere inside the shuttle, i wouldn't want that inside my stomach lol

She was okay for me, but she didn't seem to have any real chemistry with Archer.

And thanks. I've never even seen TAS, but I loved the illustration.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Shockwave


Sooo, I was right when I took teacake’s little “cough” to mean that some time paradoxes would be in play.

Mkay, let me get this straight. Daniels couldn’t come back to the present because that’s the future of the timeline that he died in, so he had to go back to the past, where he wasn’t, but now is in order to warn and then “rescue” Archer, which takes them to a future that was destroyed in a past they now can’t get out of because the future technology that allowed them to time travel no longer exists. Okay.

Oh, and they’re standing in some kind of post-apocalyptic something-or-other at the end of the episode.

Grade: C plus


I thought about skipping season 2 because this season wasn’t the best to me. It was okay, but nothing special. The only reason why I’ve decided to watch season 2 is because it kind of doesn’t make sense to watch seasons 3 and 4, only missing the second season. I might as well tough it out and just watch this next season too.
