Re: ENT S3: Harbinger

As somebody who's new to Enterprise I'm surprised no-one's made the observation that Reed fulfils the role of the crew outsider, i.e. the alien presence on the bridge. He's basically Spock, Data, The EMH, you name it. An emotionally repressed and uptight Englishman on a ship full of Americans. (Or alien-adjacent Americans, like Phlox).

Re: ENT S1: First Season Recap

After being a fan of 90s Trek for years, I've finally got around to watching Enterprise, and I have to say, yes, it's often bland stuff, but I quite like it. Sometimes simple fodder suffices.

I'll offer up this observation. Surely the outside on the crew, providing the alien perspective, is not Phlox or T'Pol, but rather the diffident, awkward Englishman Reed. And I say this as a diffident, awkward Englishman. The contrast between Reed and Archer & Tucker couldn't be greater.

Re: Star Trek: Lower Decks

I watched the first episode of Lower Decks tonight over at a friend's house, and I have to say I found it to be juvenile nonsense, and painfully unfunny. It was a real struggle to make it through the episode. If you're entertained by it, good for you. I won't be watching again.

Re: ENT S2: Carbon Creek

So I'm watching Enterprise for the first time, although I'm not watching the episodes in any particular order. It's all very inoffensive, undemanding stuff, which is fine for 2020. This episode fits that bill perfectly. Bland, comfort food. That's ok.

But my question is...why does the Enterprise have tablecloths? What was the design decision that lead to this?

Re: DSC S1: Choose Your Pain

So I'm late to the party here, and I've just started watching Discovery, but damn it's hard to enjoy this show. Tedious, baroque Klingons and absurd space fungi aside, where's the humor in this show? The light touch? The optimism? Are there any likeable, interesting characters?

Re: VOY S2: Projections

Revisiting this episode after several years - I'd forgotten all about it, but it still holds up. The interaction between Neelix and the Doctor in the Mess Hell during the Kazon attack is particularly well done. Great comic timing from Picardo and Phillips.
