AND?? What did you figure out?

Well Archer ain't the brain of the series like previous captains Picard or Sisko ... So if you expect to see him "brain up" than you will be let down. But he makes a pretty good action captain, so if you like action captains like let's say Kirk, I think you will be fine with him.
Are you implying that Kirk isn't brainy? Because you are wrong.

I'd say Kirk was more shrewd than brainy.

Re: Ryva Takes On Enterprise (Again)

He had street smarts.

What was that TOS quote about him, that he was a walking book, or walking library? Never rang very true despite the (required to be in Star Trek) familiarity with Shakespeare.

Someone tell me what the quote was!

He sometimes does it as a diversion to buy time, or he's just a masochist.

Does he rely on their future medical magic to save him from brain damage?

I'm not sure Phlox can cure brain damage with a nude massage.

Re: Ryva Takes On Enterprise (Again)

The Vulcans can cure anything. If Archer can keep in T'Pol's good books she can get him super medical treatment for his brain damage.

WHY she did not do this would have been a four part story arc in Season 5.

So the know "knock you on your ass" comment was just Archer hitting on her? How mating rituals change in the next 100 years.

He didn't yet know that space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence. He still thought he was going on astronaut camp and he was going to be the one with the most badges.

A lot of Archer's dumbness early in the series seems really contrived. Hey other cultures are different from ours! Not everybody likes us! Communicating with aliens is hard!

It makes me wonder if by Archer's time, Earth has become completely homogenous.

I know!! Sometimes I'm watching the early Archer thinking, "have you never interacted with other cultures on earth?!" It's not nice that he comes across as the dumb american stereotype. But I suspect everything is more homogenous post WWIII under one government. They never showed us a non-western Earth culture as far as I recall.

Also Third Nacelle that's an amazing avatar. Who is it??

Dame Maggie Smith would make the PERFECT Andorian.

And I just realized that is the first time I have seen those words together in one sentence.

Haven't seen it other than snippets yet (gah.. how long ago was it I said I would watch it..)

I vote your avatar as the super platinum avatar of the year.

Re: Ryva Takes On Enterprise (Again)

Unexpected:

Well. That sure was a thing I just watched.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that "Unexpected" was prooobably Enterprise's "Threshold". Wow. I don't know where to begin. Seriously, help me out here, guys.

Okay. This may be a little incoherent, but here we go.

So Trip gets pregnant from a "game". Uhh, NO. That was no game. That lizard chick raped him, and we all know it. So why is Trip the object of everyone's derision here? He's obviously the victim in this situation. But instead, it's played for laughs. To add insult to injury, T'Pol has the gall to berate him for "sticking his hands where they don't belong." (Or some crap. I can't remember the exact line.) And right after she told him to be diplomatic and not offend the aliens. What?? She's such a hypocrite. There is no logical reason for her to be so bitchy in this episode.

And a holodeck? So soon? Wow, Berman and Braga just couldn't resist, could they? Also, why has communicating with other species suddenly become so easy? Two episodes ago, Hoshi had a near-meltdown trying to overcome this problem, and now the translator only has to hear five words of an alien language, and presto! No more problem. So much for that potentially interesting plot line.

And then there's the Klingons. They almost felt like an afterthought, didn't they? It's like B&B had five extra minutes left over when they wrote the script and said, "Hey, why don't we throw in some Klingons?"

Oy vey. All right, here are some things I liked about this episode. Well, two things. One: the sequence when Trip first stepped into the Xyrillians' shagadelic plant parlor. His disorientation and difficulty adjusting to the ship was a nice touch. On most sci-fi shows, boarding an alien vessel is no big deal. I liked that this was a more complex, confusing affair.

Two: Connor Trinneer's performance. Even though this was a ridiculous episode, I enjoyed his acting. His facial expressions were especially hilarious.

That's all I got. Thank God it's over.
