Re: ENT S3: Extinction

What really got my goat about this episode and Enterprise as a whole was the laziness and seeming lack of thought in it. Archer's hair growing after his transformation made me tune out initially and the, for some reason, seeing the scene where the shuttle pod is searching for the missing away team with a spotlight made me lose it. This is a clip that is immediately followed by Reed looking into a monitor and sting he had spotted life signs. I think we can agree that the scanners don't require light, so why spook your quarry by shining a hot, white light on them? It's just one of the small examples that accumulated to take credibility away from Enterprise as a whole and the entire franchise itself in the process. This show is all about what was mainstream at the time: sex, universal appeal, and diving down Star Trek for a new audience. What they managed to do by trying to appeal to new viewers and old fans alike was fail at both. They whored out the Star Trek name and alienated the loyal fans hoping to fit into the "trash television" niche.
