Re: ENT S2: Singularity

This is one of my favorite episodes of Star Trek and I come back to it again and again, if for nothing else than the well realized origin of Red Alert. Love the build-up, the comedic timing is spot-on, a testament to both the actors and the directing. Four stars.

Re: ENT S3: Anomaly

Really liked this episode. Fantastic action and effects. Much as I hate to say it, I'd probably torture the guy too. Stakes are way too high.

Re: ENT S1: Detained

It was made clear that the only thing the prisoners were guilty of was possibly being recruited into the cabal. Minority Report decided the issue of whether people should be arrested and punished before committing a crime, at least for me, and the answer is no. In the season's 2nd episode Fight or Flight, in which the Enterprise flies away leaving a dead crew hanging from the ceiling, Archer turns the ship back saying that there are human values he needs to stay true to, in this case contacting the dead crew's home world to advise them of the situation. In the case of Detained, all Archer did is give the prisoners the choice to try to escape. He stayed true to one of the highest human values, personal autonomy.

Re: VOY S7: Critical Care

I know people who have put off medical care because they can't afford it or wait until the pain is so bad they can't stand it. Interestingly in two cases this has been for dental care. Something is seriously wrong when medical care is the number one cause of personal bankruptcy in a country. I'm not holding my breath waiting for the private sector to handle this problem.

Re: VOY S5: Think Tank

3 stars. I like being reminded that not every evolved species is bi-pedal or air-breathing. I liked Voyager playing the two conspiring parties off against each other. I enjoyed the pyrotechnics of the Hazari pounding the think tank at the end. I liked the combination of civility and understated arrogance in Jason Alexander's performance.

Re: VOY S2: Tattoo

I know this episode is old already, but I was watching it again tonight and you what bothered me the most? The alien native chief's makeup. His eyes were all blackened and he had on so much white makeup on his face. It looked gross and certainly didn't look like he was "living right"! In addition to the way it made him look "sick" it was kinda weird that he was a "white guy". They couldn't find an actor of "color"?
Despite all of that, I like Chakotay as well as the whole Star Trek Voyager series! It is too easy to pick about movies and shows on TV, just too easy.😊

Re: ENT S4: United

OK Jammer, OK everyone. I got up off my couch and came over to my computer and said if Jammer doesn't give this 4 stars I'm going to personally track him down and... do something. What a nitpicky bunch. What the hell is WRONG with you guys?

Re: ENT S2: The Crossing

OK, even I have to admit that Archer--whom I generally like--is too immediately hostile in this episode. It doesn't get more excitingly sci fi than an encounter with an alien species that was at one time corporeal. Definitely a missed opportunity.

Re: ENT S2: Canamar

Man, I'm going to have to disagree with Jammer and those who want more social commentary. I don't mind a little commentary, but I get my dose of seriousness listening to the news. I want my Star Trek fun, action, great effects, good acting, good chemistry, and asking myself "how are they going to get out of *this*". Overall I'm very pleased with Enterprise, and I liked this episode. I liked the fight scene, the camaraderie among the prisoners, and, for that "bit of social commentary," that the episode explored the idea of a "continuum of evil" with Kuroda worse than the guards. I watched TOS all the way through recently, and I found it quite repetitive. It's also hard for me to get past the dated sets, the short skirts, and the half-naked women. As for later shows, Darmok - boring. The Inner Light - depressing.

Re: ENT S2: Cogenitor

Oh, and for those who keep referring to the "Dear Doctor" episode, remember it was the *Doctor* who made the compelling argument of the show... which was that choosing to help one species over another in the case of the Valakians/Menks would be the equivalent of alien visitors to Earth choosing Homo neanderthalensis over Homo sapiens under similar circumstances.

Re: ENT S2: Cogenitor

I got the impression that the Vissians wouldn't give Charles up without a fight. In a case of "you give 'it' back or we blow you up," Archer would have no choice but to give Charles up. But if the day ever came when the Vissians wanted to join the Federation, they'd have to change their ways, wouldn't they? There's a limit to what a lone captain can do vs. a Federation.

Re: ENT S2: A Night in Sickbay

I wasn't sure what to make of this episode as I watched it, but overall I came away pleased with the attempt to do something different...something zany, slapstick, tongue in cheek. I don't have a problem that Archer was not perfectly behaved. It's human, he was under a lot of stress, and it moved the characterization forward because he realized what a heel he was being. I have to disagree with people who don't think there's chemistry between the captain and T'Pol... I think they're *hot*. I like their debates and I think they balance each other nicely. They make each other think. I love the final scene between them in this episode because it's out on the table--the attraction is admitted and it is agreed that it's not possible to pursue it. Archer is one of my two favorite captains...he's feisty, determined, passionate about exploration, devoted to his crew, and, dare I say it, physically very attractive. I do not see the petulance and "cowboy" behavior that other people seem to. I see him as showing restraint and leadership despite his hot-headed tendencies. On another note, I'll agree with everyone that the decon room scenes are embarrassing. Why didn't the actors rebel?
