They didn't. Our trained diplomat decided to bring Porthos along on this diplomatic meeting. As a result, Porthos not only pees on their sacred trees which offends the natives but also contracts something that might kill him. All of this would have been avoided if Archer didn't bring his freaking dog.
He's lucky they didn't kill the dog on the spot. Even if they had done that his reaction would have been just as idiotic, amateur and diplomacy retarded. I know people say they were new at it, untested etc.. but ffs if WE can see how just taking the dog down there was dumb you would think Archer could.

Re: Star Trek Enterprise: The most "likable" cast?

As I said in the another thread, I'm enjoying season 3, I'm invested in it. So every dumb thing Archer does really stands out. ("Raijiin") You're interviewing -for the second time in three episodes-a prisoner by yourself? and then you *enter the cell with the woman who has telepathic/mind control abilities*? Brilliant Archer.

Not to mention the Trek staple of beaming down...and then...saying things like "The air is breathable".

But, for every one thing they do wrong, they do three things right. I just quibble a lot.

I love Enterprise. I may bash Archer but I thoroughly enjoy all of it.

Re: Star Trek Enterprise: The most "likable" cast?

The only character that I raised an eyebrow T'Pol-style at was Doctor Phlox, but only at first - that smile took a bit of getting used to

I wish we had seem that smile more often. They kind of didn't do it for a few seasons iirc.

Re: Star Trek Enterprise: The most "likable" cast?

I always have a little trouble initially with alien cast members (I didn't like Spock when I first saw him), and Phlox reminded me too much of Neelix with his makeup and constant merriment. Though a continually cranky alien might be hard to take, too. T'Pol might fit the cranky mode though.

Trip's accent didn't bother me too much, as I knew people who talked like that back in the Ozarks (which Trinneer apparently based it on). It was a risky choice, because Trip could have easily turned into a good ol' boy redneck ala Dukes of Hazzard.

And poor Travis winds up with the short stick. We learn he grew up on a freighter, but not much is made of it afterwards. And after establishing he's an outdoors type, later references to that have him get injured while rock climbing or he's the first crewman to be incapacitated by the threat-of-the-week.

But the actors all seemed to gel with their characters and relationships fairly quickly. Scene chemistry was pretty good all around, just about any two of the actors could be put in a room together and create something interesting.

Re: Star Trek Enterprise: The most "likable" cast?

It seems like the Mayweather character should've been played by someone older and been further up the chain of command. Since the character was the second most experienced space traveler behind T'Pol.

Too bad they couldn't have gotten someone like Morgan Freeman to play the scraggly, space-boomer XO.

Or Terrence Howard, in his early 30s at the time, but he was already getting noticed for his film work. I didn't have a problem with Anthony Montgomery, just that he was sometimes reduced to "Entering standard orbit, Captain" lines too often, like early Sulu.

In my opinion it is, nobody comes across as a jerk, nobody is offensive.

It might not be the most interesting, but certainly the most likable in my opinion.
I too prefer my starship crews lobotimized and drooling as they zip around on the galatic short-bus. I especially enjoy watching them while having some dry white toast and a glass of Tang.

Not a problem with Montgomery, I just don't think the character made much sense from an entertainment standpoint. He had the most interesting backstory and was treated like Harry Kim version 2.0.

Re: Star Trek Enterprise: The most "likable" cast?

In my world, Mayweather would've been a former freighter captain who lost his ship and crew and was recruited by Starfleet because of his experience in dealing with other races.

Terrance Howard would have been a great choice if they were going for a droopy-eyed navigator who knew his way to every 7-11 in the quadrant. The first onboard scene of Enterprise could have been Doctor Phlox handing him a prescription for medical marijuana and a box of Twinkies.

Played by Andre Braugher.

Yeah, if there is one thing I'm sure a budding Starfleet needed was starship personnel (especially navigators) well-seasoned in the skill set of losing ships and crews.
