What's great about them is despite being brain eating sociopaths they still retain the Vulcan refusal to have a sense of humor.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Exile


Okay, somebody lied about their appearance. Not a good sign. I hope he doesn't double cross them. And a few days? It's not going to take that long; he just wants to spend time with Hoshi. I'm surprised that no one was suspicious of the timeframe. Archer shouldn't leave her alone with him. I started to give him a gold star for when he had her stay with Phlox in sick bay , but leaving her alone with a possible weirdo makes me have to take it back . At least one security guard should have been left behind, no ifs, ands, or buts.

I feel sorry for his story but he seriously gives off a Mr. McCreepy vibe. Aaand the truth comes out. He wants her to be his companion. And "came to appreciate," sounds like his previous companions were unwilling at the start. Hmm. Hoshi should have played coy until her people came back because there's one thing that will surely set off a desperately lonely weird guy--"No!"

Well at least he was half-way decent in the end. Creepy, but still somewhat decent.

Grade: C plus
--------------

The Shipment


I can't believe that Archer would leave their hostage alone, with the door open, and with no one looking. If that Xindi guy hadn't been decent/trusting, they would have had some real problems. Hearing that Xindi's explanation of what happened, it sounds like they were responsible for their own planet's destruction. I wonder why they think humans are to blame?

Grade: C plus

Exile was an interesting episode. Very few Hoshi related episodes, so it was a nice change of pace. Yeah the alien didn't seem like he was actually malicious...just weird and lonely.

The Shipment finally starts to move the Xindi plot forward a little bit. As to your question... here I'll use spoiler tags:

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I think you've been through two Hayes episodes now (The Xindi and The Shipment). No mentions of Major Hayes. What do you think of him and the conflict with Lieutenant Reed?

FYI, Hayes is in only three more episodes - Harbinger, Hatchery and Countdown.

Hayes is beautiful.

That is all.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I like Reed a lot, and wished he got more screen time on Enterprise but that pissing contest between him and Hayes was just silly at best.

Hayes might have been a more interesting character if they didn't use him mainly as an antagonist to Reed and it wasn't dreadfully obvious how his character arc ended.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

I agree it was utterly stupid and unprofessional.

But it was also hot.

Aah, "Exile"... like "Anomaly", another lame-ass filler ep I was able to skip over thanks to Michelle Erica Green's fine reviews. (Not to be confused with kick-ass filler eps like "North Star" and "Hatchery". )

Dig the yellow text and gold stars, though!

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

If you skipped it how do you know you didn't like it?

Also, lots of Hoshi. Lots and lots. So you did miss something.

^ Yes, I like to have my own first-hand opinion about things. Otherwise, you never really know.

Sorry about that. I decided after Fight or Flight not to do full analytical reviews. I was kind of half-way doing them up to that episode and then just decided to post my overall impressions of episodes after that.

Anyway, Hayes. I like him, but I think he's a little too rigid. It's the kind of rigidity that comes from either not having enough experience (which I think is the case for Mr. Hayes) or being "set in your ways," which mostly applies to more senior and seasoned military leaders. That could prove to be a problem down the line, but so far I don't see an issue.

What Hayes showing up does bring about is Malcolm's insecurities. He has an "us vs. them" mentality as soon as the guy shows up. I do hope he can get over that and realize that he's earned his position and there's no need to fret. Over all, I think having more security on the ship is a plus. Hayes seems to be very duty-bound and honorable, as well as his team.

What happens when you take two rigid people, add a healthy dose of lust and REPRESS EVERYTHING.

You get a sex bomb about to go off.

This is heaps better than the old "open and happy girl unwinds the uptight boy" deal.

It must be time to look at this photo again.

Did Worf ever really unwind?

No, but that was part of the fun. Guys like Worf and Spock never really do. Occasionally, you get a baby step, though.
