Re: Favorite/Underrated Episodes of ENT

I don't have a problem with Frakes/Riker or Sirtis/Troi. Bad Thoughts' Trials suggestion could possibly work, if Riker and Troi had been visitors from the future, perhaps even there to ensure that NX's mission would succeed. Though that scenario then has an echo of Star Trek: First Contact and everyone would criticize that being reused instead. Bringing the pair in as essential to helping the crew complete a mission would be preferable to what we got. But watching it as a replay just didn't work for me, because it made Riker's personal crisis a major element of the story, which should have instead been about Archer, T'Pol, et al.

And if a viewer had been unfamiliar with TNG, they would have had no idea who those two people were or their significance.

I really do not understand why some people think that the first 2 seasons of Enterprise are awful. I have enjoyed the subtle beginnings of how learning through mistakes has lead to the beginnings of Starfleet protocol. I just got finished watching Episode 8 "The Communicator" & Episode 9 "Singularity". The Prime Directive, emergency protocol, and the enhancements or importance of the captain’s chair were intriguing.

Any thoughts on these episodes?
I agree with you -- I also feel that the first two season of ENT are often overlooked.

"The Communicator, Minefield, Deadstop, Singularity," among others are intriguing stories.

The problem I had with TATV as a series finale was bringing in stars from one of the earlier series as pivotal figures in the episode. TNG didn't bring in Shatner and Nimoy for "All Good Things...", DS9 didn't use anyone from TNG in "What You Leave Behind", and Voyager didn't bring in anyone from DS9 for "Endgame". TNG in Enterprise's final show was a case of the writers more concerned with celebrating their own legacy within the franchise, rather than the show's legacy.

And the "Ladies. . ." business is sexist condescension which should have gone out of style decades ago.
I agree -- the ending to that episode was a semi slap in the face.

Enterprise deserved more.

Hopefully, Netflix can salvage Enterprise for all of us.

^According to Braga, the success of the campaign rests on convincing Netflix there's an audience. Translation: watch it on Netflix.

Aye, and that I am. I decided about 2 weeks ago to embark on watching every single Star Trek Episode in historical order. Starting with Enterprise->Star Trek TOS->Star Trek TOS Animated Series->Star Trek TOS Movies->Star Trek TNG->Star Trek TNG Movies->Star Trek DS9->Star Trek Voyager.

My main question with the path I have chosen has to do with TNG movies and the DS9 and Voyager series. Do any of the TNG movies overlap anything in the DS9 or Voyager series? Is my timeline order the way in needs to be?

^Only in insignificant ways. I would watch the TNG movies at your leisure.

No problem. Happy to get the word out there.

According to a few preliminary reports, 'Trek' is one of the most popular shows on Netfilx. As long as the numbers to continue to grow, then the campaign to get Enterprise on Netflix becomes all the more stronger.

Rumor is that Netflix is willing, but convincing CBS to sign off is a whole other story.

Re: Favorite/Underrated Episodes of ENT

Since everyone still looks good.. though they trashed the sets

I'd love to see Season 5! JJ CAN DO IT since that is his only series left in his timeline
