Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I don't mind Vanishing Point. It's not how I wanted Enterprise to examine the weirdness of early transporter tech (did I even want that examination at all? Hmm...) but it's at least less of a bore than season four's Daedalus, and not quite as goofy as TNG's Realm of Fear.

Plus, Hoshi. I can't bring myself to dislike a Hoshi episode, assuming for the moment that there's even such thing as a Hoshi episode. I can't think of too many others.

Now, Precious Cargo... that was abysmal.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

^That's too bad, each character should have some episodes that are strictly dedicated to them.

-------

Time to dust away a few cobwebs and post the next episode.

The Catwalk



I don't know that this was bad, just boring. It took a few tries to get through it. The whole "disturbing you" thing seemed interesting when Archer having earbuds/headphones and T'Pol turning the sound off of her PADD could have eliminated that scene altogether. I would guess that in the future that might still be possible. It got better toward the end, though. I liked Trip inviting T'Pol to movie nights on Tuesdays. That was very nice.

Grade: C minus

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

^ Understandable.
------------------

Dawn



This episode was alright. Some of the earlier scenes of Trip talking to the alien and the alien talking back, without the use of a translator, were interesting. I’m not sure exactly how they understood each other without using gestures. And it was kind of obvious that his type of “water” wasn’t going to work for Trip. Their small climb together and braving it against the elements until help arrived reminds me of DS9’s The Ascent. Still, this was better than the last episode for sure, and it had a nice ending.

Grade: C plus

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

What was funny for me reading this was that I had completely forgotten this episode existed.

A touch of Arena, a bit of The Ascent.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I find Catwalk infinitely better than Dawn, which is bad-derivative even by Trek standards and bores me to tears. But so it goes.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Well, it's all relative. We're not all going to enjoy the same things in the same ways. I don't think Dawn is nearly as good as The Ascent, but I was able to watch it in one sitting and get some enjoyment out of it by the end. Catwalk, not so much. I'm glad that you enjoyed it, though.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

In Broken Bow, Hoshi says something to T'Pol in Vulcan after T'Pol recommends Hoshi may want to go to her quarters after Hoshi feels some warp tremors. What did she say to T'Pol in Vulcan? I would love to know.

Another fan of The Catwalk here. One of the rare instances where the crew actually feels like a full crew, not just a senior staff with a few background extras.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I'll agree with it being nice to see the rest of the crew in the background.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Yeah, Enterprise seldom could even make full use of their main character nonetheless keep any regular backup characters around. There were a few exceptions, but it did seem to be the rule mostly.

Catwalk was a fun episode that it really seemed to capture the vulnerability of space exploration, where they're tightening down the hatches to survive the space storm and all.

Dawn.. about the only think I liked about it was it acknowledges the language barriers that alien races would inevitably face without a magic handwave of a universal translator. Enterprise was good about that element of things.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Well, with Dawn, that was most of the episode, and that's what I liked about it too. I liked seeing Trip work to communicate with the alien he was stranded with and how they went from being enemies to "friends." This was a race that the Vulcans had a difficult time with, and they were definitely difficult, but I liked the way things worked out in the end.

It's shocking, some of the episodes I like.
