Impluse


Can T'Pol have a break? She's injured again? Too bad about the trellium (sp?). At least Archer had a nice moment at the end of the episode.

Grade: C
Mr. J and I rewatched this last night. Hawkins!

We did imagine it, a bit, with the 'bots from Mystery Science Theatre 3000, yelling, "Brains!"

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise

Affliction


This episode is interesting. Trip is sorely missed on the Enterprise, and the Columbia crew can't quite keep up with him. T'Pol is dealing with her denial about being in love with Trip, and I think they have some sort of link to each other, almost like being bonded. Malcolm is a member of... Section 31??? And Archer has his "Eh tu, Brute," moment when he catches Malcolm in the act, but Malcolm can't tell him it's not what he thinks... The Klingons trying to make their own augments backfires, and Phlox gets caught in the middle. Lots of stuff a bruin'.

Grade: B

Considering how many storylines they were cat-juggling in this arc, I thought they did pretty well.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise

The Section 31 arc really wasn't necessary to the episode, and it was disappointing they had to force that in there so late. You'd think the Section would've had a mission or two regarding the Xindi, the Klingons or any of their earlier encounters if they decided Reed was dependable.

But Enterprise spent half it's existence doing this. "Hey let's do a Ferengi episode!" "Let's do a BORG episode, how cool would that be?" and so forth... so someone in the writers room probably had been advocating a Section 31 episode for a long time and got his bone. Even though it in essence contributed nothing to the forced drama of smooth headed Klingons. No long term thinking beyond the single minded "cool" factor of the episode of the week.

As for Phlox? Someone cloned him. He's like all moral and stuff now, you almost forget he advocates genocide.

I have nothing against the concept of Reed being in the Section, that would've been cool to find out in season 2 or something.

It really contributed not a thing to the plot's problem or resolving it. They just played a mild part on causing the problem, that really was already underway. Aside from Reed getting some angsty screen time, which was well done.

In the other episode they're in they play a similarly inconsequential role aside from taking up screen time.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise

I would have vastly preferred it if Reed was a devout member rather than all the angst about being trapped in it. That would have fitted his personality and added huge interest to the character.

I liked the Section 31 reveal simply because it gave Reed something interesting in his background. "Stuffy guy with lots of allergies and phobias who likes to blow stuff up" is pretty weak.

Sure, in an ideal world the writers would have come up with the idea during the series' conceptual phase so that it could have been a part of Reed's development from the first episode. But it wasn't. IMO, adding it in even in the late stages of Season Four did more good than it did harm.
