Re: ENT S4: The Aenar

I really do not understand why you think that love and sex are out of place and unnecessary in Star Trek. This is really a part of life you cannot avoid, to say the least. Portraying anykind of life out there somewhere without exploring romance is visibly incomplete. However much you disdain cheesyness, this is part of who we as humans are. A major plot hole in Star Trak is total lack of love – even when love is explored it is incomplete, in traces, simmering but never realised fully (as in Janeway/Chakotay) or sometimes even gross (Kira/Odo). As life is the way life is, to ignore love and delete it from a series altogether is foolish.
Can you imagine that some 80 men and women spend 3 or 4 years living together 24/7 on board a starship that cant be that big in size and never get involved romantically? Even with short excursions and short leaves, this is not feasible because humans are humans – they need emotional involvement if not sexual. This could have been a rich topic to explore, having in mind that there are a lot of internal conflicts going on and tensions piling up. Even if they never bend the starfleet rules – there are a lot of people with the same ranking on board and restrictions only apply in case superiors and subordinates get involved. I even think that star fleet should have devised elaborate rules about this, which would have to be feasible, and that it should have given it no less importance than the prime directive. You just cant expect humans to act like robots for a number of years.
You also criticised the way T’Pol and Trip got together in Harbinger. Well, that’s how it usually goes in real life – no deserted islands(planets), no extreme conditions and life-threatening situations, just some ordinary situations.

Re: ENT S4: United

I agree with "Archer's Dog" - the loophole in the deathmatch is plausible, because losing an anthenna is worse than dying to Andorians. Too bad there was no fifth season, as Shran was planned to become a member of the ENT crew and therefore regular in the show.
I love the way they explained how humans have the central role in the Federation.
I dont look for small plot holes as most people here do - you seem to forget what Star Trek is all about - namely, there are so many big loopholes, such as the humanoid appearance of almost all species throughout the universe, the same composition of the air they breathe, the same gravity requirements, the famous explosions in space with no oxygen, the universal translator being able to figure out the whole language based on ten words it gets... But of course, we dont mind this - this is science fantasy and not science fiction - we all engage in a "suspense of disbelief". If we can disregard all those elephants in the room, why do you constantly have to look for much smaller plot holes? Just relax, imagine a better future and enjoy the show. I love Star Trek anyway they serve it.

Re: ENT S4: Home

The best episode ever! (The wedding made me cry though when TPol kissed Trip...) For the first time it goes deeper into the characters and we have a moment to relax from all that action.

Re: ENT S4: Storm Front, Part I

I hate these indefensible time travel paradoxes, including the plot hole - why didnt Daniels take them a few years back, because the timeline with Nazis in the USA is already different from the normal one. The whole point of STar Trek is for us to imagine the future, and if you take it back into the past, the magic is gone.
Of course, as a really loyal Trekkie, Ill enjoy any episode Im served... but still - they could have been more creative in this episode.

Re: ENT S3: Zero Hour

Oh no, not the Nazis again! We had enough on those on Voyager (I hated the holodecks btw). But, I am totally biased, so I must say that I liked the rest :) Watched it 7 years ago and I don't remember a single thing...

Re: ENT S3: Countdown

Another good one, with the exception of Hoshi being the jack-of-all-trades once again...

Re: ENT S3: Hatchery

I actually sided with Archer - I think he was right to save them and was surprised when the crew thought he was totally crazy. Saving insectoids could have served the purpose of preventing the war - much better than just trying to find the weapon because that does nothing to stop the war.

Re: ENT S3: Harbinger

I liked this episode and I generally think that ST Enterprise is so unfairly underrated.
I loved the way TPol and Trip acted this out - the same goes for the confession scene in the Similitude. And it didn't happen overnight, we had this long coming. As TPol was later intended to be discovered as half-Vulcan (unfortunately this was planned for season 5), this would have made sense regarding her Vulcan characterisation.
As for Reed/Maco situation - so uninteresting and predictable. Good acting from Archer though in the reprimanding scene at the end.
