Re: In a Mirror Darkly: A Critique?

I think the episode was one of Enterprise's best episodes. It's over the top fanwank, yes. But that's better than most of the series. I'm not a fan in general of fanservice, but that's better than not paying attention to the fans at all like in the first two seasons.

When I heard the fifth Trek series was a prequel I was skeptical but I was also excited to see the events that formed the Federation. Instead I was treated to a lot of bland TNG-rehash stories where a character overcomes his character flaw then forgets the lesson in the next episode, then everybody sits in the decontamination sauna.

Season four was what I expected season one to be.

*Then season four comes along, with so many prequels and tie-ins one has to assume all those changes led TO the Trek history we know, rather than away from it.
This interpretation does resolve a lot of problems I had with the series, at one point thinking it must be set in some alternate universe entirely.

That is how Trek should be done.

And in any case, a ship with advanced shields and weapons isn't infallible. The Defiant, faced with a prolonged assault by the rest of Earth's fleet, would have eventually buckled. One ship can't hold off for long against many.
Add to that the ship was being operated by a undersized crew, they were likely running the ship solely through the automatic systems and given their unfamiliarity with the equipment wouldn't have been able to perform battle repairs.

Would a "pack" of world war one cruisers be able to destroy a single modern cruiser operating under similar handicaps?

Yes.
