You probably could have just started a new thread for this, rather than re-animating a dead one from over a year ago.
Seems like starting new thread is accepted here. Every other board I've participated in frowns on starting another thread where on exists. Thanks
Just to clarify how it seems to work here, Moderators generally seem to prefer not reactivating a thread over 6 months old. If you see a thread younger than that on the topic you want to discuss, add to that one. Otherwise, start your own.

Each sub-forum has its own individual mods, so their preferences may vary on how rigidly they enforce it. I don't think they'll use their agonizers on you though.

HR, the Enterprise mod, only brought out the pain sticks if you posted spoilers for Into Darkness.

(rubs pain stick wound from months ago)

Beyond that... it really seems personal preference to the sub forum's mod to how selectively rules are enforced and on whom.
Ah, but that pain-stick scar makes you look so cool! And your humble moderator got to see the film almost spoiler-free. An unspoiled moderator is a happy moderator.

As for dredging up old threads, as long as you're adding something substantive to the discussion, we're fine with a thread that has lain dormant for a few months. A year is a bit long in the tooth, but y'all jumped right in with interesting discussion, so it's all good.

That being said, now that the threads can last almost forever without being pruned, I think a new thread that has less pages to backtrack through might be more appealing to newer posters who haven't weighed in on the topic. New voices and fresh opinions are always welcome.

I enjoyed "Carbon Creek." Jolene got to do a different character, and the fish out of water stuff was fun. I think it's the kind of change-of-pace episode we would have seen more of in Seasons 5-7, when a show is comfortable and well supported by TPTB and there's room to play around... but alas. I guess we're lucky we got shows like "Carbon Creek" and "North Star" early on, before the ax fell. I'll miss that musical ep they would have done in Season 6, tho.

Plus this episode was filmed up in the San Bernardino Mountains where some of my relatives lived, so I got a kick out of seeing the locations.

I love the setting of this episode too.

What "musical" episode are you talking about? I hadn't heard anything about that.

I do NOT miss the musical episode.

The musical episode of Sanctuary burned out my soul.

Never. Never. Never. Never.

I think Scott Bakula has some musical theatre experience too. Not sure if he ever did any work at the St. Louis Muny Opera while growing up.

Only PIcardo can carry a musical episode. The man can't do anything badly.

Re: I really Like "Carbon Creek"

Yes this is true.

Gah, I get the chills just thinking of the horror of a musical ENT episode. They might as well have made it a xmas special for the full awfulness.

It only exists in my dreams, hon. Scott Bakula has a lovely tenor singing voice, which he had the chance to show off in various episodes of Quantum Leap and a guest appearance on Boston Legal. He was nominated for a Tony for the stage musical Romance, Romance.

If TNG could do a goofball Robin Hood episode, surely ENT could have done a musical ep a la Buffy the Vampire Slayer's "Once More, With Feeling." Terrible awful? Please, "Threshold" was terrible. Scott singing anything would have been glorious.

Re: I really Like "Carbon Creek"

Hmm, an Enterprise musical. Highlights.

The "Tortured Archer" ballet number.
T'Pol sings "It's Illogical".
Trip's "Let's Kick Some Alien Ass".
Hoshi's "Tongue-Twisters".
The first act's closing number, "Funky Phlox Fleas".
Malcolm's "In a Haze About Hayes".
and Travis' "I'm Speechless".

Cool. I am aware of his musical background. If memory serves, he was a singer until he lost his voice. That's when he got into acting. It's his first love I believe.

A musical episode in Enterprise might have been difficult to pull off, no holodecks and all.

Hey, we're talking Star Trek here. You don't need holodecks, even though we've seen one developed by aliens. It could be done as:
1. Warp field imbalance sends them into an alternate universe.
2. Transporter malfunction traps everybody in the pattern buffer for a full hour, as in "Vanishing Point".
3. Weird space anomaly does the same thing as #1.
4. Presented as the feature for Movie Night.
5. ?
