    I guess that was the season finale cliffhanger. Fairly dramatic with ties to a greater stroy line. I hope they have more of this next season and fewer stand-alone episodes.

    I agree...took some nice twists and the ending was kinda...dumbfounding!

    I always wished they would do story arcs..instead of wrapping stuff up in the last few minutes. Next season hopefully will be more like this episode.

    A question for those of us who don't get Enterprise until Wednesday nights. Is the Finale one or two hours?? Neither the UPN websight or the Startrek websight says, but there are two episodes listed on TV Guide, with no explanation of the second hour.

    Thanks

    "Shockwave" was one hour.

    To be continued...

    Hayes, I think the second hour will be a repeat, and which episode will be aired will be determined by a fan vote.

    My first reaction:
    The same thing I always hate about time travel stories. They say "time", but people usually get transported MILLIONS of miles through space as well.
    Either one of these is improbable enough. Both together are practically unbelievable.

    Can someone please explain that ending to me? Why would they transport Archer to a time/place where they wouldn't be able to go back?

    I think Archer and T'Pol should just do it and get it over with.

    I'm glad Porthos got plenty of screen time.

    That's about all I care to comment on the season cliffhanging finale.

    I liked this episode, even if was a little too smooth. That is, Archer and crew basically walk through the episode effortlessly, with minimal tension passed on to the audience.

    However, as much as some cringe at the time-travel arc, the Suliban/Temporal Cold war is the most original storyline of the series. With its share of rehash, Suliban episodes are refreshing.

    I'm a tad apprehensive about carrying the arc over into next season. How long will they drag the Temporal Cold War out? It's already stretched into two seasons. I suppose I shouldn't get too critical just yet - DS9's "Dominion" arc went for ages, and rarely got boring.

    Ok, cue the "this is B&B we're talking about, not the writers for DS9" comments...

    So I waded through all the crap to get to a crap season finale. And a "to be continued" no less. Once again we get the temporal cold war slapped in there and then they leave Archer stranded in the future.

    I thought this was Star Trek, not Sliders.

    What an abysmal hour of TV where the whole crew just sleep walked through. I have great respect for Bakula but the writing of Archer is pathetic. Crying is such a useful trait in a captain.

    After the season finales of Andromeda, Buffy and Angel I could not believe how boring and tepid this was. I didn't notice the credits but last night was just additional proof that B&B have the writing talents of a dead slug.

    Archer had a line where he said something like, "It's hard to believe, but I just traveled in time." Was that nod to Quantum Leap, perhaps?

    The Temporal Cold War is probably intended to come and go as often as Q did in Next Gen. I liked the episode, and thought it was a good nod to September 11th.
