*yet another little bump*

I just watched this week's Enterprise and I have to say it could quite possibly be the best episode of the series so far. The storyline is outstanding and I have a deep gut feeling that this is all leading up to the conflict with the Romulans.

I think it may be a good mini-arc, but the one episode didn't have enough to it to qualify as anything but a set-up.  It was a great set-up, though, I'm looking forward to next week.

I thought it was a very good arc and it did a good job repairing puting the Vulcans back on track.  It  also seemed to set the stage for the rest of the season if not the rest of series if it is not cancelled.

Well I totally called the Romulan influence. Once again though, this was an amazing story and possibly the best episodes of the series.

*Bump*

After a month-long break, Enterprise returned last night with the episode, "Daedalus". In which the creator of the transporter and his daughter(who were friends of Archer and his dad) come aboard the Enterprise to experiment with a new type of transporter that can beam the occupant thousands of lightyears *cough*Stargate*cough*. But the man who created it also has a secret motive in hopes to rescue his long-lost son.

My thoughts: Pretty good episode, not as good as any of the other one's this season. But still a good and emotional episode.

Enterprise has been cancelled.

Finally out of it's misery, I suppose. Never liked the show, myself (I think it was the themesong).

Though fans have my pity, if they want it. It fetches a good price in the markets of Morroco.

That's too bad, sort of.  On one hand, has been getting better, the current season is by far the best so far. On the other hand, it still isn't nearly as good as the Stargates or Battlestar Galacticas out there, and I was getting kind of tired of watching it (despite the upswing in quality).  Overall, I think I'm just burned out on Trek.  The question now is: how long until the next series?

Awww, fuck. This just sucks.

This past season has been phenominal, and the show was really getting it's stride.

And so ends possibly the last StarTrek series...

That's sad, but I can't say I didn't see it coming.  They put the show in the Friday night death slot.  Friday night is like a coffin for TV shows.

This season was much better than last year.  While the few single episode stories were uneven, all of the multiple episode story arcs were really good.  These are the kind of stories I wish they would have been doing last year rather than wasting a whole season on the boring Xindi.  Episodes about the Vulcans, Romulans, and Klingons are more exciting than the goofy Xindi could ever be.  The show may have been doomed now for a couple of years, but I think if the changes made to the writing were made last season the show may have been able to grab back some viewers and save itself.

I'm sorry folks, I love Trek as much as the next geek, but this show's death knell rang with the opening strains of the theme song.  They should never have tried to make it something it wasn't (i.e. "Dawson's Creek" in space).

TrekToday is saying that it will be at least 3 years minimum before another Trek series would start development.

Berman is supposed to be working on Star Trek XI, so not all is lost.

I'm sure they'll have learnt their lesson now and stay in the 24th Century. Trek doesnt look back.

I have to say watching Enterprise this week was severely depressing.

Not the episode itself (which was awesome), just the fact that now I know that this great series is just about over...

Last few episodes. Bummer.

This week, I watched one of the best eps. of the series: "In a Mirror, Darkly".

The episode takes place entirely in the classic alternate "Mirror Universe". The episode basically takes a look at the events happening in the prequel mirror universe, and it did not disapoint.

Generally I've been waiting for channel 9 here in Australia to play Enterprise, I watch it coz its star trek, I never feel that much of an urge to aquire episodes early. However I have done when episodes are advertised to have call backs to previous material. For example, I downloaded the Ferengi Episode when it aired in the US, as well as that lame Borg episode, even that one with the romulans and that other with the tholians.

Being a fan of the Mirror DS9 episodes, but not so much a fan of the Mirror Mirror Ep of TOS, I thought I'd snatch a copy of this.

Although its a shame that its inconsequential to the story line of the Trek universe crew, it was still most enjoyable, plus it had a 3d tholian and a tholian web!

Most enjoyable, cant wait for next week's!

It was an enjoyable episode.  I did like seeing what  their interpretation of a Tholian looked like.  They don't tend to visualize non-humanoid species very often in the Star Trek TV shows.  It was also cool to see the Constitution class ship.  The only thing that got at me a little was that the acting seemed a  little too forced by almost everybody.  I the actors went a little over the top in trying to be "dark" versions of themselves.  Maybe that's how they were directed to be though.  I'll definitely be tuning in next week.

In the next episode we'll see another alien that hasn't appeared since the original Star Trek. I'll just say that they'd better hope they can find logs and charcoal on the Defiant....

That was a great episode, it's too bad the show is cancelled now, after finally getting good.  In case anybody didn't know, there is an audio commentary for In A Mirror, Darkly with the writer here, in MP3 format. It's fairly common commentary stuff, but an interesting idea (There are similar commentaries for the last few episodes of BSG, but I haven't listened to them yet). 

On a semi-related note, I discovered a while back that the Enterprise opening visuals match surprisingly well with the Odd Couple theme song. I'll post a link when I can get it working.

It was pushed back to 10PM and moved to another station in my area (Canadian west coast) , to make room for a showing of Spiderman (not even the second one, the original). Next week it's at 10PM again (pushed back by Rush Hour 2), back on the original channel. It's a pain trying to keep track of it, especially for recording.

But yeah, a great episode, the only minor gripe I had was with the poor CGI job on the Gorn, it was distracting.  They did an excellent job at recreating the look and feel of the original sets and props (though the phaser blast was dissapointingly well-done), but stil kept it dark and exciting. It wouldn't be hard to call this the best two-parter of the series.

Saw the episode, and it was fantastic.

I personally thought they did a great job updating the look of the Gorn. And the ending was fantastic.

I was just plain floored by this amazing episode. Possibly the best of the entire series.

It was a good episode, but not up to par with the past few weeks. Nice concept though, xenophobia in the future towards aliens.

I hate this show...it's such a  disgrace to the otherwise wonderful series of Star Trek. I think I've actually sat through two whole episodes.

That's all I had to say on that...I'll go back to lurking now.

I taped the new Enterprise episode Friday night and yet I taped over it by mistake last night.  I just realized I did this now when it's too late to catch the Sunday showing.  Damn my forgetful brain!

Well... That totally sucked. The final episodes of Enterprise aired tonight, marking the end (for the foreseeable future, at least) of a franchise that has been on the air since 1987. 

Terra Prime wasn't bad. In fact, it was pretty good.  It definitely picked up from last week's episode, and had emotion and an interesting plot and so on and so forth. It had a few holes (like the Whatever The Plot Requires Gun that the terrorists had control of). Not end-of-an-era material, but a decent episode. But that's not important. The important part is what came on after it... 

These are the Voyages.  Imagine if The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings had been presented as the Simpson family watching the episode on TV with it cutting off right before the opera.  That would be about as bad.  If it had been a normal episode, it may have been interesting, in the same way that the alternate universe ones were a few episodes back (though those were definitely better no matter how this one is looked at), but as a series finale it was a complete disaster. Having Riker in the background of every other scene (and   in the foreground for the rest) really killed all hope any of the scenes had at any sort of tension. How are you supposed to find any interest in a firefight when you know that the whole thing isn't real and can be paused, rewound, or skipped with no consequences? Then, a main character was killed for no reason (it seemed as if Trip just stopped thinking as soon as he saw the baddies, and figured "I know, I'll blow all of us up" without considering any other alternatives). It was a real disappointment after the complete turnaround in quality that this last season has been.
 So long, Star Trek.  Come back when you get a haircut and clean up a bit.

I think you're being a bit hard on these are the voyages. If you've been keeping up with the Trek News (such as Trek Web and TrekToday) then you'll realise it was written as a fairwell to 18years of star trek, and also as a hope to make the Prequel fit in with the real trek.

I thought it was well executed, but I suppose thats because I'm a hell of a lot more interested in the TNG crew than I am with the shallow characters on Enterprise.

The Pegausus is one of my favourite TNG eps so, I'm happy straight off, and the CGI Galaxy Class Enterprise-D was seriously awesome too.

I was a tad disappointed that they actually cut the speech at the end, were they infering that the "Space the final frontier..." was Archer's?

TNG had it's goodbye episode a decade ago, and several movies to boot. Star Trek has changed since then (for better or worse is questionable), so why does the finale of Enterprise have to be written as an aside in an episode of TNG?  It may have been written as a good-bye to 18 years of Trek (I've been avoiding spoilers and general news on the finale, though it was obvious that is what they were going for regardless), but I don't think that this was the right way to go about it.  It did have some good parts, I admit, but I'm no longer interested in the TNG crew so having them steal the spotlight of Enterprise's finale really... sucked the life out of it.

That's it? Rather dissapointing for a last ep. Also sucks that they let Trip die.

About Terra Prime. I think they shouldn't have sent Trip and T'Pol down there, without a disguise. Seeing that there is a clone of them on the colony, I'd expected that they would stand out and be caught real soon because the colonists obviously know what they look like.

It was good, but nowhere as good as any of the other finales, let alone most of the episodes from this past season...

I finally got around to watching the last two episodes of Enterprise tonight.  The Terra Prime was just OK, not so interesting. 

I really enjoyed the finale though.  I was quite happy that they used Riker and Troi to move the story along without making them the focus of it.  That way I got a little TNG nostalgia without it trampling over the Enterprise story.  The ending part with the three different era Enterprise ships was a nice touch. 

The only thing I didn't care for was them knocking off Trip.  I'm not sure what the point of that was It didn't help the story at all in my eyes.  If you took that part out it wouldn't have changed the feel much.  I guess it's just symbolic of the show in general, never as good as it could be.  Hopefully the next incarnation of Trek won't have Bragga, etc. at the helm.  They really fumbled with Enterprise when it had a lot of potential.  Of course, they probably should have never done a show based in the past focusing on the Enterprise in the first place, but that's another discussion.
