Re: ENT S4: These Are the Voyages...

Tony (April 2017). You’re absolutely correct about the location of Panama City, Trip’s hometown. Ironically, it’s part of the devastated Panhandle hit by Hurricane Michael.

Re: ENT S4: These Are the Voyages...

Oh yeah - Trip’s death was heroic and on his own terms, and the final collage was wonderful.

Re: ENT S4: These Are the Voyages...

Straha (from February 2009):

My experience follows yours, up to and including a reluctance to watch the episode and, when I finally did, being pleasantly surprised. My perspective differs from the critics in a couple of significant ways: First, I’ve always watched ENT strictly for entertainment (and hats off to all commentators for sharing their Trek knowledge, which greatly enriched my understanding of some of the episodes); second, I was not aware that this episode was expected to bring 18 (17?) years of Trek to an end. Also, I don’t know why there’s bad blood about B&B, so I’ve got no dog in this fight.

Viewed on its own as the conclusion of ENT and written with the knowledge the series was cancelled, I thought the Riker/Holodeck concept was clever and well executed. My only quibble is an important concept I learned here: continuity. Travis at one point says that at the start of the voyage Trip and the Captain had known each other for 10 years, Trip having been Archer’s diving instructor. Really? Surely they first met when Archer was a test pilot, albeit not THE test pilot chosen to fly the first ??? Egads, I don’t remember exactly. Was it warp drive?

As always, I feel it incumbent on me to mention or at least hint at my age. I grew up during the original TOS broadcasts and am automatically given a “wisdom discount” at my Oregon dispensary

Re: ENT S4: Terra Prime

Brian — I, too, was struck by the parallels in the script and the current regime. I double-checked and sure enough, The Demon and Terra Prime episodes were first aired in 2005. That’s more than a decade before the MAGA madness overtook this country. Seems this is an example of life imitating art.

Re: ENT S4: In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II

I found parts 1&2 fun romps in an alternate universe. I’m going to search for interviews with Hoshi actress to see if she had as much fun as it would appear.

Re: ENT S4: In a Mirror, Darkly, Part I

DOM - Well it’s been 5+ years since you posted your comment about Hoshi’s fate, yet here I am in November 2018, innocently reading comments by those who know Jammer’s posting rules prohibiting spoilers, coming across YOUR post. Why oh why would you be so cruel?

Luckily for me, I watched parts 1 and 2 consecutively before going to Jammer’s review and reader/watcher comments. I, too, picked up on the irony of the line from Jammer’s Part 1 review — the line you cited in your spoiler post.

(Yes,I’m being deliberately vague in an attempt to avoid repeating a spoiler.)

Re: ENT S4: The Aenar

As the final episode in a three-parter, the excitement factor felt flat. I like the earlier comment about being a two-parter with another episode. I also agree with the comment that this episode had a different feel from the preceding two.

But oh the characters. The scene between Trip and Archer was wrenching. Trip’s pain was palpable and you could see his heart was broken. I just wish T’Pol would listen to the advice her older and wiser self gave her in the episode where the Current Enterprise meets the Old Enterprise. Come on, girl, give it up for this deserving guy. (Note: I’m an old lady who was around for the original TOS.)

Oops - should have typed: transporter’s, not transporter’s, services.

Greattrekker: like your theory on the link between the Romulans and the builders of the creepy repair station.

Re: ENT S4: Babel One

To add to Jammer’s category to weed out pitches: “transporter can only beam back X at a time.” As a footnote to this category, X = fewer people than those in need of the transponder’s services.

Re: ENT S4: Daedalus

NEIVESG: Surely you shouldn’t be posting spoilers. I was very sorry indeed to read your post, the first one in 4 seasons of perusing and enjoying the Comments that I’ve ever come across a post that spoiled a future episode.

Aside from the person cited above, I agree with many of the comments on continuity (or more accurately, lack thereof); Archer’s irrational behavior; and plot predictability.
When the unknown guy with Malcolm appeared I started shouting, “Where’s your red shirt,” and was looking around for Archer’s little ones from The Hatchery when he pulled his I’m-the-Captain card with Trip. And wait: Do you mean to tell me Trip and T’Pol haven’t broken up yet?

Re: ENT S4: Kir'Shara

Jez: Further evidence of the need for knowledgeable editors/proofreaders in all areas of writing. An interest of mine.

TO ALL POSTERS: I greatly appreciate reading the comments on how certain elements of the plot fit into Trek canon. I’ve been watching the series solely for its entertainment value, which has upped the game this season. Learning the lore here is an added benefit. Thank you.

Re: ENT S4: Storm Front, Part II

I watch this series to be entertained and this two-parter fulfilled my goal. Loved the portrayal of the people in the ‘hood and enjoyed seeing Enterprise receive the welcome it deserved.

Re: ENT S3: Harbinger

Since I watch Enterprise strictly for entertainment,I was indeed entertained. I loved what I think of as the “swinging d....” scene and although I’ve been rooting for a P-T ‘ship for a while, their scene took me by surprise — but a very nice surprise. I feel compelled to state my age (69) and sex (cis female - I live in the PNW).

Re: ENT S3: Carpenter Street

Given that I’m not a hardcore Trekkie, I’m able to watch this episode— all episodes, actually— for their entertainment value. I kinda liked this episode. Also, to further alienate myself from other commentators, I happen to like Archer. Not sure if this matters, but I’m a gray-haired 69 year old woman who was around at the beginning of the Trek series.

Re: ENT S2: A Night in Sickbay

I kind of enjoyed this episode and figure Archer was aware he was being ridiculous. He was just letting off steam with people he could trust. As to the sexual tension with T’Pol, I’ve certainly felt it before. I enjoyed the scene where they addressed the issue and got a kick out of her response. A non-denial denial.
