    Don`t take this the wrong way, but for a couple of seconds I thought, am I going to see some Broke Back Mountain shit in the first shuttle scene? After all it`s Star Trek and we had, at least to my knowledge,Jadzia and Dr. Kahn kissing so the next step could be some man on man action.

    If not logical, at least plausible :) :vulcan:

    Anyone else though the same?

    What's the correct way to take the phrase "Broke Back Mountain shit"?

    We all wanted this. I mean you're gonna die you might as well have a little last happiness right?

    Or.. maybe not.

    "Shuttlepod One" is one of the few episodes of Enterprise that I really did enjoy. And, no I didn't get even a remote gay-vibe from any part of the show.

    I really liked this episode. But...eh...they didn't strike me as going for any kind of romance. Perhaps a bro-mance. Definitely one of my favorite episodes though.

    If you're really going for the man on man action, Reed and Hayes would've been more convincing.

    Whilst "Shuttlepod One" was one of the best episodes of the first couple of seasons it could have been better, just ditch mostn no sorry ditch all of the scenes set on Enterprise.

    Absolutely. I get zero slashy vibes from Shuttlepod Pod One despite it seemingly being tailor made for such.

    Reed and Hayes only have to stand near each other though :lol:

    Why not Reed-Chef? It might have made "These Are The Voyages" slightly more interesting.

    It is Riker's holodeck time, of course.

    I thought it was a fine episode but it did turn me off to the Reed character. He comes off as a bit of a whiner, and the character isn't a whiner at all.

    'Trapped in a small space' episode.

    There are two things about this episode which really turn me off to it. 1) I don't buy that thing where they decide to waste their oxygen in order to make their last few hours a bit more comfortable. 2) STINKY! That dream sequence just weirds me out. How is the nickname 'Stinky' somehow flirtatious to this guy? Eww. I definitely will never be checking Malcolm Reed's browser history.

    Dang, I thought this was going to be an episode review I'd missed during my absence. I guess in a way it is, but not quite what I was expecting.

    I thought it was a good example of how Star Trek can put two actors in a room and let them play off each other, and Keating & Trinneer get almost 90% of the episode's running time. There was a lot of stuff we learned about Malcolm and how he thought of himself.

    Actually it was the other way around: Trip asks Reed if a few more hours of oxygen would be worth freezing their butts off - which they decide to do.


    As to the question of the OP: No, I never once got any "homo-erotic vibe" when watching the episode. Heck, Reed even goes on about how "awfully nice" T`PolĀ“s "bum" is :)
