Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Fortunate Son... I dunno, Archer struck me as kind of insane in this episode. He sides against his own people because... they take a Nausican pirate prisoner? Because he doesn't want to provoke them? Yeah... good call. If you provoke them by taking one prisoner they might start attacking your cargo ships or something.

Cold Front... yay... yet another cliche time travel episode. It's so cliche in Enterprise, the "Temporal Cold War" becomes a major plot element in this. The intrigue about Daniels and Silik and not knowing which one to trust, if either is interesting. And doesn't really get resolved. Really though, Daniels is a crappy time agent with all the cyptic references to the future he casually makes to say nothing of his "Time Travel for Dummies" kit he just leaves lying around.

Silent Enemy... random ship attacking for no reason... random aliens we never see again. Okay yeah... the food subplot is more interesting. As for Phlox being unethical with digging into Reed's records... next episode...

Dear Doctor... yeah I get the pre Prime Directive Intent... but Phlox in this episode... what the heck?! He not only doesn't care about an entire race dying, but he actively insists upon it and cheerfully so. He cares more about smalltalk and romancing Cutler than he does the people on that planet. Small wonder he just casually let Hoshi see Reed's medical files last episode.

Sleeping Dogs



Ah, do I like Klingons.

I loved it when Archer and Phlox ask if the crew was probably poisoned by one of the spoils of their pillaging and the Klingon woman says, “There was a raid!”

Grade: B
---------

Shadows of P’Jem



Aside from the Archer/T’Pol wriggling around in rope scene, this was a nice episode. It would have been better if the way T’Pol’s condition was presented wasn’t a deception.

Grade: B

Shuttlepod One



Mmmh. Aside from a couple of heartfelt moments, this one wasn’t the best. I’m going to stay away from the word “stinky” for a while after this one. :-/

Grade: D plus

Yeah, I remember that one as being pretty terrible too. A nuanced character drama by writers who can barely write straight-up action stories.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

It's one of the most popular and loved eps.

That said, it never made my top ten. But I think it has many charms. If you are drooling over Trip and Reed this is pretty much a showcase.



Drunk, unshaven, babbling men. What's not to like?

I think it's the worst one I've seen so far.

Oh, I don't know. For starters, I'd say drunken, unshaven, babbling men.

And we don't even get a confession of love like we did with Miles and Julian!

Really disappointed about that.

^ Lol. Yeah, but at least the episode wasn't built around that. And they'd been friends for a while so the camaraderie felt real.

Fusion



The jolly-happy Vulcans arrive in this episode. T’Pol’s sensibilities are challenged. And in the background, something’s happening with some nebula. It’s unfortunate that T'Pol ended up being right about at least one of their guests.

Grade: B plus
--------------

Rogue Planet



This story was alright. Nothing original, but nothing bad.

Grade: C

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

Just once I would like the alien appropriating the appearance of your secret desire to actually surprise us.

S/UF your avatar looks like you surprised Quinto with your phone and took a snap in the street

Fusion... oh yes, they finally find some Vulcans who aren't condescending jerks. Naturally something is amiss.

No secrets here. I like what I like, and I don't like what I don't like. I'm not sure what you mean by the desire part, though.

And the picture was from photos Zachary took with a young co-star in the upcoming Star Trek movie: (http://www.trektoday.com/content/201...trek-2-photos/)

If I saw him on the street, I wouldn't just take a picture like a paparazzi jumping out of a bush. I'd ask, and if he said yes, then I'd be in it too.

I thought they were great, save for the one that practically mind raped T'Pol.

Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One

It was an accident that the word 'surprise' was in my two sentences, the sentences were not connected at all. They didn't even have subtext between them.

By desire I meant Archer sees this beautiful woman he had imagined in his childhood because that is what the alien finds in his mind, something good or desirable to appear as. This just gets a little too salt monstery after a while.. I would like something a little kinkier or surprising to be what an alien fishes from Our Heroes minds.

And Zachary is adorable, I vastly prefer him over Pine. Which is funny because in my TOS days it was the other way around. I think I may have to revive the Pine/Quinto thread in the ST:XI forum.....! I am sure you have some pictures to contribute

EDIT: REVIVED. Hope you will go visit the gushing thread in ST:XI S/UF, I posted you a present
