Re: ENT S1: Strange New World

This is a fun episode to watch all these years later. I like these early episodes of Enterprise. It's fun to sort of get a look at what it would be like for our first Warp 5 ship out there exploring. What fun that would be, and what a big leap for humanity.

In the episode, presumably using the Vulcan star charts, they stumble onto this planet, no one knew it was there. But Earth is still pretty close, one of the crewmembers pointed out the sun in the night sky during the campout. A nice moment by the way!

What they didn't know then and we know now from Kepler and Tess is we're already mapping the sky. If, in real life, we did launch a warp 5 ship 130 years from now, by then we'll know where (mostly) everything is out there, at least in our stellar neighborhood. Archer and company would already have a big list of "habitable" planets to investigate before leaving on their mission. This planet would have more than likely been on the list.


As for the episode itself, I had no problem with Archer going down to the planet. I agree, if we just want probes to investigate why send starships at all? Yes, I'll concede he could have done more surveys before going down and letting crewmembers "pitch a tent". In reality he more than likely would have, but we have to remember this is only television and we only have an hour!

Also, on the topic of pointing out our Sun in the alien night sky on the campout, it was a nice touch to have Archer point out the alien star back on Earth in season 4.

Re: DS9 S3: Civil Defense

I felt bad for the nameless red shirt that got vaporized by the replicator phaser thingy.

Re: TNG S6: Timescape

I would imagine the runabout at least had a toilet on board?

Re: TNG S5: Silicon Avatar

I gave the TV screen a big thumbs up at the end when the doc destroyed the CE. I also thought Data was out of line at the end. How could he, without feelings himself, know how her son would have felt?

Re: TNG S5: Violations

I agree with those that felt Picard's last speech was silly. Overall I'm sure crime would have gone way down by the 24th century, but it's only logical some would still exist.

Speaking of crime, I wish Worf would have broken psycho boys neck at the end!
