Re: I just started watching E2

"E2" does halt the flow, but at least it does so in a way that fits into the story. Other standalone episodes, such as "North Star" (which I enjoyed), just don't fit into the season at all and probably should have been saved for later.

Re: I just started watching E2

I liked "E2" much more than DS9's "Children of Time", I guess because I prefer the ENT characters. And that they lived on a broken down spaceship the whole time, had a mission the whole time (which they failed at. Oops.)

But I do think Old T'Pol was made too old, considering Vulcan lifespans.

And of course, maybe they were destroyed, maybe they never existed.... or maybe they could still be out there somewhere.

I have my opinion and you have yours. Doesn't make either of them wrong, and unlike so many others I don't get offended if people like things I don't.

To the question of T'Pol's age though, not sure if it's canon or not, but it's been suggested that her trellum addiction is what made her age rapidly.

Re: I just started watching E2

I like it also. And it does at least get the ship to their big meeting on time, so it's not totally disposable, like "Rajiin". Plus, it's got John Connor's father-in-law! C'mon, that's pretty cool.

To me, the biggest flaw with the episode is actually a flaw of the show, that it often introduced potentially cool elements, but rarely did anything much with them. Why couldn't the E2 have stuck around for two or three eps? Why not leave our ship with a few of their crew? Did the other ship ever go back to the Wild West planet? Is there a small colony of non-combatant crew descendants somewhere? Etc.

Re: I just started watching E2

I found the halting the flow of the show element never bothered me much in ENT. In DS9 it irritated the crap out of me, all that lounge singing and baseball in the middle of the war.
