Enterprise [SPOILERS]

So far, I like it. I love the comment about knocking the vulcan on her ass. That was killer.

When they lost power Glenn made the comment that their systems were done by Microsoft too!

Cons:

Opening music
Jolene Blalok hasn't captured what a Vulcan is yet. To be fair, no one really did other than Nimoy, so my expectations are high. It's just the first episode; I'm sure she'll grow into it.

Pros:

Everything else. I'm really liking it so far. Like LeVar said, "the fun is back in Trek."

I love it, aside from the cheesy pop rock intro music. And this one has something the other four don't...Vulcan nipples!!!! YUM!

And now we know that the ears aren't the only pointy things on Vulcans

Robo - I did like it overall. I feel him getting left behind on the alien station to be bit contrived, but it was pretty good. I'll stick with it and unless they start doing the stupid stuff they did with Voyager, this could be good. Did you see it already? What did you think? Pro's? Con's?

das - your thoughts overall?

Glenn also made the comment, Suliban - Taliban. I thought it coincidental. This show was filmed a few months ago, before everything happened.

A good season premiere. Looks like I will be watching this season. Archer doesnt look too bad. But damn in that first hour.......I thought Archer was going to rape the vulcan T'Pol on several occasions.

Speaking of T'Pol..... what the hell was up with that oil rub down? Reminded me of many softcore porns from the past. Well, I must say that shes got amazing breasts. Hopefully we'll see them more this season.

Seeing Deebo play a Klingon was pretty funny. Maybe we'll learn that he is the great great grandfather of Worf.

Nice cameo from Dr. Zefram Cochrane but they shouldve shown him more!!!!

And finally,
how many damn Buffy the Vampire Slayer commericals did UPN show? I LOST COUNT!!! Jesus Christ!!!! She Lives!!!!! We get the point!

They said that the Vulcan life span was 200 years, does that mean we are going to see the birth of Spock at some point? Isn't this supposed to take place a 150 years before Kirk?

Haha ... "AY! DEEBO! You got knock'd da f*** out"

It was also good to see Vaughn Armstrong as Admiral Forrest. One of many nice homages to the original.

Blalock got all the press, but I was quite impressed with Linda Park. I hope they develop her character more and don't forget about her in favor of the big breasts. Breasts ... breasts ... what was I talking about, again? Um ... nevermind

Spock's not born until 2230. The show would have to run a long time Maybe we'd see Sarek, but unlikely.

I really liked the breasts...er, show, I meant the show. I had already read the script so I knew what was going to happen, but they did it well. This has been set up the right way, and hopefully the writers will be allowed to be interesting.

BTW Venusion- the "outlaw" Suliban were the "Cabal", not "Kabul".

I wonder if the identity of the people from the future directing the Suliban will be revealed prior to the series' finale? Probably not.

yeah, Cabal...close to Kabul, and Suliban-Taliban...eerie coincidencde?


i think the identity will be...my guess is that it is humans from the future during the whole klingon/federation war...it'll add an extra dimension of drama with the humans having to "fight" humans

The oil rubdown scene was totally contrived. Those lines could have been delivered anywhere else on the ship. Also didn't care for the intro theme music, they need to get a nice symphonic piece with Alexander Courage's intro. Otherwise, I loved it. When Archer waves his hand in front of his face in the temporal chamber, that was priceless.

Like it but I hope they get over Archer hates Vulcans got old real quick. Thou it did give him some good lines. What was the deal with the Phas pistol in the final battle? Same to admit it but I dozed off during the break down of UPN transmission.

Okay, so I am not really a sci-fi dork. What is the time supposed to be for this series?

Just thought I'd throw in my two cents. I liked it quite a bit. I thought there was a very nice intermingling of some of the clunkier aspects of the "later" TOS-era Federation and real-time technological advances that've been made since the first series ran in the late 60's. I wasn't looking forward to seeing the crew lugging around the tape recorders that stood in for tricorders on the first series. It's an ongoing aspect of production that I'm sure is going to be a little tricky.

I like the crew. It's nice to have a British actor among the regulars again, even if he's not the captain. As to the Vulcan, did she just enjoy the lotion scene or was it cold on the set that day...wow! I enjoyed the Melinda Clarke scene though I wish she hadn't been almost instantly killed off. She's a hottie. Was it just me or did I sense a John Wayne stylization to Scott Bakula's line delivery? He has the potential to be the best series captain since Patrick Stewart IMHO.

there is a tension between Archer and Vulcans like the one between Kirk and Klingons after they killed his son...yeah it'll get old fast if they don't do it right.


I'm thinking something is gonna develop between the vulcan and the guy that rubbed her down in the lotion scene...just a little foreshadowing of sexual tension

Regarding the British engineer guy, in case nobody caught the show, he played the role of 'Malos' on the short-lived series 'The Immortal' (which actually wasn't really all that bad, but they only showed it here at 2:30am). Malos was the main evil guy and was on quite a lot, was an interesting character there.

8pm on Wednesdays?

Or 2151, 88 years after First Contact in 2063 and 10 years before UFP forms in 2161?

P.S. It's geek
