Help me out with ENT timeline...

Memory Alpha is providing some interesting info, but I wanted to see if I got this correct....(of course, if I don't...steer me in the right direction).

I still need to find the time to watch the series and nitpick...

Season 1-Random exploring...

Season 2-Random exploring/temporal cold war...

Season 3-Delphi Expanse/Xindi War...

Season 4-Issues on Earth....

Now, the Temporal Cold War wasn't exactly finished, IIRC?

I may post some additional questions regarding this later on...

Re: Help me out with ENT timeline...

I imagine the Temporal Cold War was intended to get a handful of episodes per season throughout ENT... filling the same purpose mythology episodes did in The X-Files. Each one part of a story arc, gradually revealing more about Future Guy, his aim and why he was using the Suliban. As it turned out, with the show living on borrowed time, the writers just hastily concluded it with the non-too subtle Storm Front, beginning in Season 4... Which while a fun pulp sci-fi runaround, answered absolutely nothing really.

Silik is sent by Future Guy to steal a device from Vosk, to enable him to do more than transmit his image into the past. Silik is killed helping Archer in an alternate 1944, but presumably with those events reset... is restored also, free to try and contact his shadowy ally again. That last part isn't made clear onscreen. Silik gets shot and his death is pretty final... and there was certainly no reason for him to return later in the season.

Interesting...

Re: Help me out with ENT timeline...

Of course, the Xindi storyline strays off course too. Taking us away from that original idea, but keeping the TCW as the B-story to the Earth in jeopardy arc. The Xindi Council and that Sphere Builder woman completely replace, yet serve the same dramatic purpose the Suliban and FG did. Race from the far future gets some indigenous ones to the 22nd Century doing their dirty work.

Shame really. The Suliban were a pretty interesting, multi-faceted race and yet ended up being ENT's answer to the Kazon. If Detained was anything to go by, they had some promise and fit in quite well among the usual suspects in Westmore's make-up and appliances. My only complaint is they didn't highlight the creepiness and terror enough, beyond their ability to squeeze under doors that is...

heh, heh, heh...

A lot of good ideas, but it seems to be in a jumble...(Something TrekLit can fix over time, I think); I agree with you on the makeup. It was cool seeing some aliens that looked alien...but it was a matter of giving each species some depth....

And you're right about the Sphere Builder/Xindi and FG/Suliban....
