Re: ENT S4: Fourth Season Recap

Well, thanks to the joy of Netflix, I have now seen every single episode of Star Trek ever produced. Just watched the last episode of Enterprise about an hour ago.

I guess I have to be one to disagree with Jammer's take on the fourth season. I stuck it out through S1 and S2 because I'd heard it would get better. S3 was much better with the Xindi arc. But I feel, with the exception of a few clunkers, that S4 was the best season of Enterprise.

If the entire series had been like S4 (compelling storylines that fit into the ST mythos), the series probably would have lasted the typical 7 seasons.

Still, Enterprise will never be TNG/DS9. I own the complete DVD sets of those two series. Have no plans to get the sets for Enterprise or (ugh) Voyager.

Good by Star Trek until you return. Now it's on to Babylon 5.

Re: DS9 S6: Valiant

I also have to agree with the above posts. I would have given this episode 1/2 star and no more. Let's look at the absolute absurdities in it..

1. Even assuming a Captain were to give command of a starship to a cadet because all the true officers were killed, the Captain WOULD NOT give the cadet a field promotion to Captain. And he also wouldn't say "continue the mission". Instead, he'd say "get your butt back home!".

2. Is it really a believable that a bunch of cadets could successfully maintain and operate a starship for 8 months? That would be like turning over a Navy Destroyer to a bunch of 3rd-year midshipmen in the middle of a war and expecting them to survive. I was in the Navy -- trust me, it ain't gonna happen.

3. I found it hard to believe a bunch of cadets would come up with such a serious design flag in the Dominion battleship. Kind of makes the real Starfleet engineers and scientists look like a bunch of dolts.

4. Even given an egomaniac Academy Senior who aspired to messianic tendencies, does anyone really thing the rest of the crew would blindly follow? Are we to assume that the cadets are a bunch of lemmings?

5. There was a vulcan in the cadet group. I though vulcans were logical. Isn't fanaticism an emotional trait?

6. Isn't it convenient that the ONLY escape pod to make it away from the ship in one piece was the one with Jake/Nog & Company aboard. How convenient.

Sorry, I think I'll go back and watch "Let He Who Is Without Sin" again. At least it was more believable.

Re: DS9 S6: Profit and Lace

Actually, I thought Worf's comment about if the Dominion invaded Feringinar, it wouldn't be a bad thing (or something to that effect) was amusing. After this episode, "Let He Who Is Without Sin" doesn't look quite so bad
