"Civilization" has always been one of my favourite ENT episodes, and is one I return to fairly regularly. I particularly enjoy Diane DiLascio's performance as Riann.
Another vote for "Civilization". I first saw it in first-run, and it was the first episode of the series I actually liked. It felt very much like a TOS story, and I thought they were starting to find their footing in the series.

I recently just watched this episode, and it was the first one in the season where I felt the writers got Enterprise right.

Yes, spot on with TOS comparison - exactly what I thought on first viewing.

Re: Favorite/Underrated Episodes of ENT

I also loved The Seventh which is disliked. Great atmosphere, insight into Vulcan secret service shenanigans. And I like that we see Vulcans deliberately living outside of their tightly controlled society on ENT, this being another example. Sure they're all shitheads but it's still interesting.

No, not really, 'Bound' was great fun. As folks mentioned earlier 'Civilization' was very TOS in feel. Also, 'Strange New World' was great for the characters under stress. I very much liked having no monster of the week, just the crew dealing with each other under the effects of the pollen. Great episode that used the various characters talents and weaknesses to good effect.

Overrated: both parts of "Mirror, Darkly"

Underrated:




The only thing wrong with "A Night in Sickbay" is it doesn't end with the whole cast singing an episode recap to the tune of "One Night in Bangkok", Bollywood-style.

One Night in Bangkok is the greatest song ever written.

Best line (to me): T'Pol's "Enjoy your tea." to Archer. Well-said, and so packed with implication! My first real indication of "Wow! She really can act!"!

Re: Favorite/Underrated Episodes of ENT

I have started the epic journey of watching every Star Trek episode in a historic narrative, so of course I have started with Enterprise. I have made it almost through the first season so my knowledge is limited at this time, but I really would like to say that so far I have enjoyed the Enterprise Season 1 Episode 12: "Dear Doctor". Awesome episode about ethics and morality in evolutionary science. Medical Officer Phlox is starting to become one of my favorite characters. This episode is the beginning seed to what will become the Federations implementation of the Prime Directive, Starfleet's General Order number 1. Great episode.

Re: Favorite/Underrated Episodes of ENT

Civilization had a great premise, exploring the mechanics of first contacts and what it's like when different groups have competing interests with regard to primitive civilizations. However, the threat was too big, overwhelming the episode's charm. The dangers that the Malurians posed should have been more ambiguous; the resolution (or lack thereof) should have been more cerebral.

So, more TNG than the TOS ending which is what we got? I'm fine with it as is.

Re: Favorite/Underrated Episodes of ENT

When I first saw Civilization I thought "now this is a classic piece of Trek."

I was hoping for something that would set up the type of conflict that would be seen in A Private Little More. Not so much TNG, more pre-TOS, and more of something with its own identity.

What we got was the ending to Friday's Child or Elaan of Troyius, shoot up the bad guys and move on. Very TOS.

I must agree it is an awesome song. The video is kinda cool in a swaggering 80's way
