You'd be surprised how... liberating a bit of Romulan Ale can feel for individuals whose synaptic pathways have been frayed by P'Nar Syndrome.

Oh, she retains enough self-control to be able to give consent; this just helps her enjoy doing so a bit more. Much more akin to a spine-tingling massage than human-style drunkenness.

You know, I'm surprised in 7 seasons of DS9 we never saw Quark try and pawn off some roofies.

^ See, that's where the contradictions come into play. "Stigma" makes it pretty clear that P'nar syndrome is universally known, feared and reviled, but how could that possibly be the case if melding is a forgotten technique? Which is itself a totally absurd idea, come to think of it.

So really, I guess I'm saying that both "Fusion" and "Stigma", while well-written and compelling eps on their own terms, should be considered non-canon.
yup.

Huh? I never defended the rapist dude one bit. I just said that his crime doesn't change the fact that, by what we learn in "Stigma", Polly was irresponsible with regards to her own health by willingly engaging, before the encounter turned ugly, in a potentially dangerous act without getting him screened.

Again, by what we learn in "Stigma", she would have contracted the disease even if the meld had ended in mutually enjoyable fashion.
I don't know that this is the case because from what I remember of the episode, it didn't seem to say that any contact through melding would cause the syndrome to occur, so it's very possible, I think, that had her partner been responsible that she wouldn't have contracted the syndrome.

I don't remember them saying it was a forgotten technique, just that only a certain subculture of their species practiced it. Canon is whatever happened in the series, but there's good canon and bad canon. I'm not sure that this episode falls into the latter category, well, because I don't know enough about Vulcans to know. I just think it was wrong of that guy to talk her into something when he knew he was infected (how could he not know?), but of course he only cared about his own personal satisfaction, so...

Canamar




This episode was also interesting. How that government could just capture people and send them to jail with no real evidence was sad. If they had bothered checking into Trip and Archer's story, then a whole lot of trouble could have been avoided. I'm sure the same is true for other innocents.

Grade: B

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Fun note: "Canamar" was actually inspired by the original ending of "Judgment." Apparently they liked the idea so much that they decided to turn it into a full fledged episode.

Nobody seemed to think it would make sense to set the episode after "Judgment" and write it so that it would fit, however.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

You know.. I never noticed that about Camanar and Judgement... it might've made Judgement seem less of a cheap rip off of Star Trek VI.

Camanar really was just a random alien/problem of the week on it's own and could've been more meaningful too if it was written like that.

The Crossing


This was okay. I liked the way the inside of their (the "wisps") ship looked.

Grade: C
---------

Judgment


The guy who plays Martok is in this one!

In this episode he plays captain Archer's advocate. He really shines in this episode and I like the part where he talks about the different classes and how the standard for being an honorable warrior had become so low, and I also like how he takes a stand in the courtroom and at the end.

Grade: A minus

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Judgement has everything I'm bored with, the trial scene (least favorite Trek storyline), Klingons.. but I love this episode and a lot of that is about the advocate. Writing is very good too.
