    I'm a long time ST fan. Around early seaon three I was living in a rural area where I couldn't get UPN. I recently got the dvds for all 4 seasons ( and the ENT relaunch novels ) and am watching the end of ENT S2 now and really looking forward to seeing all the episodes I've never seen before.
    My favorite character is T'Pol, she is the outsider on the ship who sees things differently, and her emotional journey of growing so much as a person makes her fascinating. Jolene Blaylock is such a great actress she really steals all the scenes she's in , for me anyways.
    Phlox I find annoying and wish the ship had a different doctor, preferably another woman since the show has so many more male main charactrers than female. Other ST alien races work as a comment on humans, with Vulcans representing logic, Bajorans represent spirituality, Klingons represent agression, etc, but Phlox's race lacks that quality to make them stand out, I can't even remember what their race is called. His race had the potential to represent free sexuality given their nonmoganamous relationships, but despite Phlox discussing his family he comes off as asexual imo.
    Trip is the cutest guy on the show, although Archer and Reed are also pretty yummy, just to end my intro on a totally frivilous note. ( Nothing against Mayweather, he has a great body, but I find his personality to be too dull to take much intrest in him. Maybe he's just too young for me.)

    Having watched thru the end of ENT S2, they do say that Denubian ( sp?) males are more inhibited than the females, which explains why Phlox's wife was like an alley cat in heat when she visited while Phlox barely shows signs of having a libido, ignoring advances of a cutie like Cutler who was WAY too good for him, and rejecting T'Pol during her false Pon Farr ( which ethicly was the right thing to do since her judgement was impaired, but still he didn't even seem tempted the way Reed was. You knew Reed wouldn't go there - well probably not anyways, but you could still tell he wanted to, while Phlox didn't seem remotely interested.) , and seeming to not really connect with his visiting wife while she was trying to seduce Trip ( not that I blame her. Okay enough, I 've talked about Phlox's lack of sexuality WAY too much tonight lol.
    Bak and Blue - great WET Archer!

    If Reed didn't have the whole "chain of command" protocol hangup, he'd totally jump on it. ;)

    As far as other races reflecting on humanity, I think the Denobulans represent the ability to see good in all things. They are also the aspect of responsibility in science that humanity seems to always lack (re:AUGMENTS!)

    Welcome to the board!

    Ha! Who wouldn't?? I'm a straight girl and I might have even been convinced to try. :lol:

    Anyway, welcome, borgboy! I look forward to seeing what you think of the latter two seasons.

    I'm new to this from having only just started to 'rediscover' enterprise.
    i'm in me late 30's love most of the trek series' though not too keen on voyager.
    i remeber when enterprise was first on t.v watched half of the first season and got bored only started whatching it again when a friend of mine swapped my two voyager dvs sets for seasons one and four of enterprise.

    Hey Borgboy and other newcomers, I'm rather new to this forum too. It isn't the one in which I'm the most active. You can read me mostly in General Discussion and Voyager.

    It makes me sad that it ends up being all attributed to her disease, and once she's cured, she seems to lose her emotions, perhaps even her feelings. At least she successfully puts a lid on them - which can be seen as a little selfish, because she was not alone having feelings. She doesn't seem to take the advice from the old T'Pol from the alternate timeline. At least there's a good arc about her and humans in general. (I'm glad I'm replying late, so all this can't be a spoiler.)

    Non-monogamous, that would be polygamous. ;) "Trigamous", in this case. Although with the added ramifications of each wife's husbands, one should coin a new term. (Since polygamy means multiple wives, not husbands. Polyandry is not a very frequent notion... *sigh* ) "Multigamous"?? "Exponential polygamy" ?

    I pretty much agree with ex-Pensive: Denobulans represent tolerance, openness (of mind), (scientific) curiosity.

    Right there with you. We do watch shows for their cast, in great part. Reed is my personal favourite. You know, it's always the most sexually repressed people who unleash themselves the most, given an excuse. :angel::devil:
    Any non-Trip attractiveness talk is fine with me. I like him but there is enough Trip worship around here already. By the way, I do wish all of his fans would spell "Connor Trinneer" correctly. It's the least they should do.

    If memory serves, after 2 viewings I have concluded that it remains ambiguous whether Phlox serviced T'Pol or not - viewing it as being in a medical capacity: less awkward, in T'Pol's point of view, than mating with a crew member I guess. Or maybe he just confirms that he's bound by doctor-patient confidentiality about her (false) Pon Farr since Vulcans treat that like a state secret.

    What to say in general about Enterprise?
    Is it just me or is it the most intimist Star Trek series? It's quite character-oriented, and this is why I like it. A lot of characters get proper developments over 2 or 3 seasons already.

    **Peers in** I've been a Trek fan for a long time now and I enjoyed the series Enterprise. I'm 26, single, and I live in a tiny town in California.

    I can't say I have a favorite Enterprise character as I love them all. I think Porthos is absolutely adorable.

    Guys, don't get a beagle, though, unless you're into the newborn trip for all of the animal's life. They're very needy. They wouldn't get away with that if they weren't so cute (the smaller kind of beagle only).

    Ria 75. You are right the Doctors answer to T-Pol's query if she did anything was ambigious.

    However, I believe that T-Pol was Chaste when she mated with Trip as she Bonded with him.

    If she had mated with Phlox she would have bonded with him and could not have Bonded with Trip.

    Or at least that is the way I see it.

    Hi. I'm not new, obviously, but the last time I posted was several years ago, roughly about the time of Ent's "finale." I'm sure that was no coincidence.

    Anyway, back in the day, I used to be quite an enthusiastic Enterprise fan, though I must admit that I enjoyed some aspects of the show far more than others.

    For nostalgia's sake, I thought I'd take a little look and see what's going on around here. I'd say not much has changed. There's sure quite a few names I still recognize hanging out here!

    I am not an authority on the matter, but isn't the bonding the result of repeated contact?
    (I don't mean just sex but also psychological intimacy.) Anyway, that 'bonding' is the Vulcan equivalent of infatuation. I believe that there are chemical changes in humans, too, when we are in love. Maybe not neurological, though, (or not that much) because we're not telepaths. Which suggests that T'Pol wouldn't have a bonding with Dr Phlox because he only helped her (in person or not) with her physiological needs. Or am I completely missing the point that Pon Farr is essentially a neurological imbalance? Still, I don't want to believe that a Vulcan bonding would surge from a single intercourse.

    Hello SnuglyBag, thanks for introducing yourself to us newbies. So you're saying there's a lot of faithful, long-time members around the forum. It's reassuring for all of us. Myself, I wonder how long I'll be hopping around here. Anyway, a re-run of Enterprise has recently begun in France too (on sci fi), so as it progresses I may post more in the ENT forum.

    I'm looking forward to know the Enterprise specialists better. (I'm a Voyager girl.)

    ria75, I have never been too clear onn Bonding. Don't believe it was adequately explained on the series of if it was I missed it.

    My belief (and it is only that, a belief) is that as T-Pol said, she and Trip Mated. I think that is different from simple Sex or a one night stand.

    I believe that for a vulcan it is a comittment of some sort.

    with Phlox it would have been Sex but could have been considered a mating by T-Pol hence a Bond. But as I remember the episode there was not indication that Phlox and T-Pol had Sex and that Plox answer to T-Pol was typical Phlox, a joke.



    Frankly do not know so am in the dark and just groping around.
