    I liked this one, IMHO. I enjoyed the character moments, the sense of jeopardy was pretty good, the solution was pretty good too. And the effects were pretty cool.
    I can excuse the designs of the alien ship as it's 100 years before Kirk sees one. I'm glad ship to ship visual communication was not done for continuity with that certain TOS episode.
    I expect to hear strong disagreement. [​IMG]

    I enjoyed it, good to see a bit more of malcom and a lot of play with a few of the more minor characters all doing their bit.
    With all the SFX from this episode I think they might have used their budget up for the next couple [​IMG] (Or making up for last week)

    My favorite of Season 2 so far. It had a good mix. I like Malcolm's character so I'm glad we got to learn more about him. Also a great job of keeping the plot moving and throwing in a couple of good twists. The end sequence with the hull being detached and Archer and Reed using the shuttle hatchs as shields is one of the more memorable sequences of both this season and last for me, great stuff. Let's see if they can keep this up (at least until we get another John Shiban episode.)

    I too really enjoyed this episode. Didn't anyone find it interesting that T'Pol didn't seem to know anything about the Romulans?

    I actually quite enjoyed this one, as I have most episodes of Enterprise; While it's kinda hokey at times (the gazelle speech the other week), I like the optimisim and general excitement about their mission. Space travel hasn't lost the "gee-whiz" factor yet - the famous split infinitive from the first two series' introductory narration seems to actually apply for the first time in Trek history.

    One thing that bugged me, and please correct me if I've got the 'trek-physics' of cloaking devices wrong, but I wonder, while surely a cloaking device would defeat sensors and quite possibly starship imaging systems (since most trek ships aren't in the habit of putting windows on the main bridge, and those viewscreen images have to be generated by something more complex than simple CC video cameras, what with enhancements like sounds for explosions and particle weapons discharge in the vacuum of space and all) would a ship engaging it's 'cloak' still seem to disappear according to the mark one eyeball of someone magnetically attached to the outside of the ship?

    feeding his geek tendencies,

    Regarding T"pol not mentioning any awareness of Romulan's being related to Vulcans, Spock did say in Balance of Terror, that there is a belief in his timeframe that the Romulans were an "off-shot of his Vulcan blood". It was a theory that he felt was true, but not substantiated.

    Because of low expectations and because I was running late on last night's domestic routines, I opted to do my evening HTF chores instead of watching Enterprise. Why not? I asked myself. It'll probably be really bad, and I can always catch Sunday's repeat.

    Of course, it would end up being the episode that wins positive notices from some of HTF's harshest critics of Enterprise. And so it goes.

    Did the trailer look really bad, Craig?

    Well, the trailer didn't look one way or another. They get to a space station, weird stuff happens. I, personally, was neither stoked nor fearful.

    So, let's go to the writers - Sussman & Strong. They've got the stink of "Voyager" on them, and the only episode this team has written without Berman & Braga being directly involved is "Civilization". So, I'd be wary.

    (BTW, looking up "Enterprise" writers on the IMDB is truly terrifying. Shiban really looks to be well above the rest, and that's even with "Harsh Realm" on his resume)

    like Jason said, the trailer didn't look particularly good or bad. i just can't put much stock in the trailers, the "Carbon Creek" trailer was awful but i enjoyed the episode. (flame suit on)[​IMG] i for one have no problem seeing "more" of T'Pol/Jolene.
    i'm just suggesting, tongue in cheek of course, that if it takes you missing the episode for it to be good, i might be willing to risk that...

    The trailer made me think of the episode where Kirk and Co. meet Alice on her way to Wonderland -- repair, people "dying".
