Re: ENT S4: Storm Front, Part II

I am reminded of a book I recently read called "All in an Instant".

Long story short, it takes place in a 'sea' of time where the ocean floor is our 3D earth and any wave causes untold changes to the futureward end of the sea.

Basically, there was a ton of mass changes and you go far enough into the future and try to anchor down on Earth and you basically go mad because there are millions of changes every second and you can't process it.

And you can't ever mold a society to your fitting, because anyone can go back half a second before and just undo everything...all the way back to man's beginning (which in the book is guarded by a group of people, so that man can't erase itself).

All in all it was a bit of a mindtrip, but fairly awesome.

Re: ENT S3: Doctor's Orders

Why are all the doctors on star trek so awesome?

Well...crusher not so much, but that series had picard. :p

I still like The Doctor the best, but Phlox is still up there...

As to the T'Pol thing, I would say its only logical for his mind to be able to imagine her instead of anyone else. As you have noted many times, the vulcans have super plot immunity, and no doubt his plot driven brain would realize this and think of her as merely immune whereas the humans he would be forced to help. He could conjure up some denobulans, but this would take a bigger leap of faith then 'T'Pol is Vulcan Immune'. As Phlox degenerates more though, more humans are seen, showing logic is slowly being strangled into submission.

I wonder if the thing really expended at all or if that part was in his head too. The plot never makes that point clear, although of the verious figments seen throughout the episode it would be the most believable...

Re: ENT S3: Stratagem

I like how the doctor has the neuropathways worked out and can erase the memory, but can't get a truth serum made because it would take some weeks to do what he should have had done in the first place. :p

Re: ENT S3: Proving Ground

Bit of a pet peeve, but iirc I noticed the reptilian call the other xindi guy a 'humanoid' in an insulting fashion. Now them sea xindi could say this alright, and mebbe even the bugs....but 2 arms and 2 legs the reptilians have, making them quite humanoid in shape, just like 99% of trek.

Silly writters....

Re: ENT S3: Similitude

Tuvix was a much better episode than this one I would say. It just seemed to work on several levels and actually made you care about the darned thing.

This......this is just a mental experiment played out with no real emotional impact. coma to thing to clone to solution. Just...meh.

Re: ENT S3: Impulse

A few weeks ago, an illness featuring vulcan immunity.

This week, an illness featuring human immunity...

Nice how that works out. I am sure were the show not from a human point of view, there would be more illnesses that would affect the center species more.

I found it odd that once they found out they couldn't help them they kept with the stun setting 'sure, we could be killed by them, but god forbid we murder them before we have a chance to murder them in a family friendly manner!'

Still, the show seems to have a good deal of continuity going this season, which never hurts.

Re: ENT S3: The Xindi

I sorta found the Xindo to be fairly alright people. Sure, they want to destroy Earth, but looking at it from a broader perspective they have every right to want to do so. I mean if us lowly earthlings learned aliens were going to kill us in the future, I'd want something to be done (although genocide IS a bit harsh...still, self preservation is a paramount instinct).

Although, I do find it odd that a species that has five different varieties, which would have undoubtedly have had a bajillion wars with each other, wouldn't be able to think in terms of negotiating a peace to ensure the future predicted wouldn't happen. Because I can't see any justification for wanting to get revenge for people that will continue to exist should they try things a bit differently...

But then, this is Trek....time travel is the puppet of the writters....*shrug*

Re: ENT S2: The Expanse

"Maybe I need to go to quantum-dating school."

Even today we have theories which allow for particles to travel back and forth in time. Iirc, something like a positron moving forward is like the same as an electron moving backward. They could perhaps just be reading an electron back to its source or something. Ir maybe not...any writters that put T'Pol in heat like last week aren't exactly thinking too much in depth :p

Re: ENT S2: Bounty

Now you can not have your cake and not eat it too!

Archer: Argh! I'm in another jail cell!
T'Pol: This cell is radiating Pon Farr beams...wanna have sex?

Re: ENT S2: First Flight

They have mentioned some pretty major wars that errupted in the 21st century, one might assume that part of the aftermath involved a society that very much knew it needed to expand or die, resulting in a more capable space program...

And considering in just a few episodes florida gets a makeover, I'd say the fragileness of life is again brought into the spotlight...just on less a personal level and more a 'superman save us' level. :p

Re: ENT S2: Cease Fire

"I may be in the minority, but I'd favor a juicy scene of heated negotiation with specifically detailed points and good dramatic acting"

I was waiting for a scene...and waiting for a scene. shouting in my mind 'c'mon...enough with this scripted action....get to the negotiating table!'. But alas it was not to be. But as you say, there are some good parts to it, mainly in its theme.
