Re: ENT S2: The Crossing

I think I started searching for reviews because this episode really leaves a sour taste in your mouth at the end; it's very non-trekish. At this point in the series, Archer is becoming recognized as a diplomat and it just seems so out of character to blow up a ship full of non-corporeal beings that seem to be in a desperate situation of a failing starship. Also, I couldn't quite believe how easily they blew up the supposedly much more advanced and larger starship, given that they had to fire 2 torpedos just to deal with a scaffolding arm that pinned Enterprise to a repair station. It's just all too inconsistent.

If they just changed the aliens motives to something much more sinister, like wanting human slaves, or the crossing over was converting Tuckers Mind into psyche food stuff for them, then the audience would feel a bit more justified with Archer gunning them down at the end.

As it was, it feels almost like they needed to end the episode in a hurry and they wanted to end it with a bang, so the writers made choices which probably were more in alignment with TV broadcasting requirements rather than being true to the characters or the story.
