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

When I was in medical school my two roommates were watching Enterprise and enjoyed it. I caught one or two episodes and thought it was silly. 15 years later I decided to give it a go and just finished the whole series. Given all the amazing comments here I only want to say a few things:

Thank you Jammers for a great review site that I randomly happened upon after that episode where Porthos was sick and I essentially googled ‘why is this so bad’. In general I think you’re spot on, and the comments section on this blog is so much better behaved than most of the internet.

Yes this final episode is abysmal. Should’ve ended it with the one before. I’m struck with thinking that trek is suffering under the weight of its own success. Everything has to follow cannon, the only races encountered need to be ones we’ve seen, everything has to call back to the ‘successful’ treks (TOS and TNG). DISC is suffering the same problems. Until trek takes risks again (and not just oh now we’re ‘gritty’) but real newness, I’m not sure it’ll ever recapture that magic of my childhood.

And most importantly: everyone who loves DS9 really should do themselves a favor and watch all of Babylon 5 (and read the story of how DS9 ripped them off). If Jammers hasn’t seen it you should give it a shot. A little rough at the beginning but turns into the most Shakespearean and fascinating sci-fi show.
