Re: Archer, T'Pol, or Trip?

Trip. He was by far the most likeable and the only one who seemed like a balanced, well developed character. How much of that is due to the actor alone, I don't know.

Archer was poorly developed, I feel, in that he was talked about a lot, played up to be someone spectacular, but we never got the SEE any of that, really. He was portrayed as just a normal guy, so the two things didn't really jibe and it became off-putting. I think Scott is a good actor, and I've liked him very much in other things,but I think he's best being the Average Joe, just a decent guy trying to the right thing. But it didn't work with the way Archer was written.

T'Pol did show growth, which I liked, but there were some moments where it felt forced or where playing up her attractiveness bordered on the cheesy. Again, I attribute a lot of that to inconsistent writing.


Just my two cents. Your mileage may vary.

Re: Archer, T'Pol, or Trip?

I fell in love with Trip when I first laid eyes on him in decon...


And he got more interesting as the seasons went on, especially seasons three and four.

Re: Archer, T'Pol, or Trip?

I´ll go with Archer. The fact that he is just a normal guy but still has to do an incredibly difficult job, makes him all the more appealing to me. Plus, I really like Scott Bakula as an actor.

None of those three are actually my favorite.

I didn't get to see the entire series until this year. Malcolm became the character who was most interesting for me, because he keeps so much hidden. He's sort of the Illya Kuryakin of Star Trek, as Dominic Keating and David McCallum both tried to reduce the amount of information revealed about their characters.
I would agree, Malcom Reed was my favorite character on the show, he seemed to have a lot of shades to him and stole the show on multiple occasions without even trying.
I'd go with Reed as well.

Re: Archer, T'Pol, or Trip?

Trip. It was not love at first sight. I thought he was an idiot, but after a while a fell in love with him. He is adorable. I'm on my third go with enterprise. I've never made it past the first season but was around whilst my boyfriend was watching it so have seen some episodes in the later seasons. I've decided to give it another go, as the DVDs have been laying around for years. Archer is a prized prat and my opinion of him doesn't change even as the years pass. T'pol still seems bitchy to me and very un Vulcan. My opinion of her may change as I work my way through the seasons but I will never like Archer.
