Re: most violent episodes (& TV Parental Guidelines rating system)

^ No, you're right and there's an argument for saying we didn't need to either. But everytime I watch that episode, it feels disjointed. As if they trimmed out a second or two, maybe planned to make it an effects shot.

Nothing like the way TNG handled Conspiracy, because Star Trek went too far with that. But at least the light of a phase-pistol bolt, from the back of his head. Dunno. It always feels too quick, considering all the running around building up to his confrontation with Archer.

Re: most violent episodes (& TV Parental Guidelines rating system)

Ah, ok. It's been a while since I last saw it but I was pretty sure I would have remembered that. Such a thing would indeed be very messy, they should have shown some hints like blood splashes. After all, Archer was standing pretty close to the guy.

As for "Conspiracy", I only got to see the exploding head years later because that scene was cut when TNG was shown in Germany. I first saw it as an animated threadbomb somewhere and thought, "What the hell? When did this happen on TNG?"

Amazing! Yeah that was a TNG WTF moment for sure.

I think most all of the TV14 ratings of ENT were for language.

Damage was a little violent, but more personally so. The agony booth seemed more silly than violent, even in the original series. So far, I think on the violence scale TNG's episode with the exploding heads is probably a winner.

I don't recall anything in ENT matching the shocking horrror of the transporter accident in TMP. Though I felt a little sorry for the Tholian in Mirror Darkly.
