    S1 was one of the reasons I got so damn unhinged when ENT was cancelled. I thought to myself: "No more Trip and Malcolm in uncomfortable sitations? BURN IN HELL, LES MOONVES."

    None of the listed choices would be my personal choices for respective seasons' best (and I'm surprised it's not Dead Stop or something instead of Carbon Creek as a choice for Season Two), but ...

    ... I have to go with Twilight here. Shuttlepod One would be runner-up, but I think Twilight has more 'weight' to it. It's more a poignant tragedy. It's more epic. And that doesn't always equal good or better. Shuttlepod One is a great character piece, and I love it. But in this instance ... I just think that Twilight is better. It gave us, as viewers, a better perspective/appreciation of the whole Xindi threat by showing what the consequences of potential failure would be. And it had some of Archer and T'Pol's best interactions. And the ending, where he commented that she would make a good nurse ... was very poignant. Though the characters didn't know that, we did. Just how close they came from having that future be the real future ...

    My favorite's not on the list -- Similitude.

    Of the list, I'd say Observer Effect.

    Most "Final Polls" around here rarely include THE actual "best" per se. But the four choices we were given were no slouches so I'm satisfied.

    :eek: Ooh, who would have thought Twilight and Observer Effect would put up such a close neck-and-neck race!

    I'm actually shocked "Observer Effect" has THIS many votes. I always knew it was good and serviceable, but not better than S1. More power to it, though!

    Observer Effect; definitely one of my favorites.

    Of these choices, I'd say Observer Effect.

    But my all-time favorite is Similitude.

    Twilight, although none of those episodes would be in my top ten list so maybe my pick doesn't count for much. :p

    Which one was "Observer Effect"? I don't remember that one at all.

    It's the season four episode where Organians (in non-corporeal form, often as Mayweather and Reed) study the response of the Enterprise crew to the infection of Hoshi Sato and Tucker by a fatal silicon-based virus brought on board during an away mission. Archer ends up risking his life to save them and one of the Organians rewards him by saving Tucker, Hoshi and his life.

    Good one, but doesn't hold a candle to Twilight, which I think is one of the best of Enterprise.

    ANY of these would be one million times better than "TATV." Even watching blind.
