    Since everyone eventually loves to come down on only one side of an argument...I propose a game of Pro's and Con's.

    Rules:

    • Each individual post only contains ONE "pro" and ONE "con"
    • You must post one of each
    • You cannot post another pair until someone else posts.
    • You cannot post a tongue-in-cheek or sarcastic excuse for a pro or con just to try and be funny. Example:
    PRO: It was teh awesome
    CON: It ended too soon!!!1!1!!!1! Har Har Har!!!!1!
    • You cannot post a very weak Pro or Con coupled with a very strong opposite to try and prove how witty you are ;) Example:
    PRO: Archer's hair in "Strange New World" was ok I guess
    CON: The existence of the series!!! HAR HAR HAR!!!1!!1!

    Let the games begin!

    PRO: The NX-01. Futuristic and realistic. A perfect blend of Trek canon and technology that existed at the time of production.

    CON: The "Xindi" weren't named the "Xendi" (a race brought up in TNG). All the wanking about "canon violations" a simple naming could have made season 3 more palatable for more folks.

    PRO: Phlox is an awesome character, as is the idea for the "interspecies medical exchange"
    CON: Phase Cannons and Photonic Torpedoes as older tech was kinda lame

    Majority of the NX-01's command crew should have been composed of CONS ... ex-cons. Promised complete pardons from life sentences for a few years of service on the ship.

    The exception was Trip, he is a long time PRO, never been caught. He's on the ship working a deal for the five families in New York.

    Pro : Season 4 as a whole. I adored all the little tie-ins to TOS that Manny Coto did.

    Con : I didn't care for the NX-01 exterior design, which I thought looked far too much like later era ships.

    Precursor to the Akira. Very logical.

    PRO: Archer and T'Pol's growing relationship throughout the series.

    CON: Future Guy. While time travel is a staple in Trek, they went too far here.

    PRO: Generally more natural dialogue and less-stilted interactions than 24th century shows
    CON: A lot of the production design
