A Night in Sickbay.

I just spent a night in sickbay. I'm sorry, I mean I just watched A Night in Sickbay.

I think it's one of the funniest/silliest episodes in all Trek. In a good way. What do the rest of you think of it?

Re: A Night in Sickbay.

I thought it was fun and silly as well. I enjoyed having a captain who was utterly wrong (human!) and a Vulcan science officer as well as the physician explain how wrong he is. I also thought the idea of a captain/science officer romance was interesting. It's kind of like having Kirk and Spock as buddies, except that Spock is a chick.

Re: A Night in Sickbay.

^^^ That, and it's just so surreally un-Trek-like that I have to like it, despite itself.

Have you noticed that ENT characters mostly use the gym when they have sexual frustrations to work out? This and "Bound" are my two pieces of evidence.

This was a fun episode. I don't get the hate. I really don't.

I - Surak - am still freaked out by the subservient quadriped submerged in the glass container. An emotion I did not anticipate.

Re: A Night in Sickbay.

Seems like this topic comes up on a regular basis. As always:

ANIS sucked. One of the worst hours ever produced by Star Trek. It was obnoxious, aggressively unfunny, and built around the premise that Archer had the social skills of a bratty four-year-old with the temperament of a spoiled infant. I can only agree with the reviewer over at the Agony Booth who summed up his reaction thusly.

It takes active, aggressive hatred for your own creations to annihilate them to this degree. At less than eight minutes into the episode, I'm actually angry enough to just stop the recap here. I rarely get pissed off when I recap stuff, because deep down, I really love the awful stuff that I recap. But this episode is something quite different. It's not terrible in the way most of the movies featured on this website are terrible, in that the filmmakers didn't know what they were doing, and just stumbled into making a horrible movie as a result of their own incompetence. It's terrible in that Epic Movie kind of way, where it seems everybody knew better, but the writers just hated the characters, hated themselves, hated their jobs, and most of all hated you for wanting to watch the shit they write.
So, basically, I can't stress enough how much I hate this episode.

Sorry Rear Admiral Gep Malakai, it's one of my favourites too.

I kind of suspected some people might hate it. Their loss.

Yes, it freaked me out, too.

In my household, the quadripeds are both feline. I haven't yet succeeded in convincing them that they are subservient. But I do love that phrase!

I think that the people who like it also enjoy fisting.
Hey. That's offensive.

It was a little too much. Characters were too much unlike themselves so that made the episode feel a little bit like a parody I don't hate it, it was fun.

I've seen it several times and still enjoy it. I found it fun and silly which is something Trek was lacking in for several years prior to ENT.

Re: A Night in Sickbay.

If you get hung up on Archer acting "un-captain-like," just convince yourself ANiS takes place in a parallel universe.

In general, I like the humorous episodes better than the heavy ones ("Singularity" is one of my ENT favorites).

Singularity was one of mine as well.
