Enterprise 10/17

Spoiler:

short intro, but funny

romulans? based on cloaking device, and no visual communication
nope it's not, didn't really think it would be but it was possible

I don't think it was a replicator, but an automated version of a pop fountain at a fast food place

well according to canon
Spoiler:

first contact with the klingons led to war, so I have a feeling we'll be seeing klingons firing torpedoes every few weeks

Anyone care to explain to me why this race, masters of cloaking technology and holodecks, needed Gomer Pyle's help with their engines?

My thoughts exactly.... so I now switch channels when the episode ends and won't watch the teaser.

Was thinking the exact same thing, which is why I spent the great majority of the episode thinking
Spoiler:
that their engine problems were on purpose just so they could encounter other species and "mate".

interesting thought Duran

well .. my main thought last night was

"If I was Jonathan Archer, helping an alien vessel not only once, but twice, having no problem having them share their holodeck technology with the Klingons .... and everyone seems to be quite fascinated by it. Wouldn't I ask for that same technology ??? "

hmmm ...

oh .. and it is ok to show nipple and call it nipple on TV as long as it is anatomically at the wrong spot ??? yeah yeah !

enterprise - the nipple show

time to see T'pol's again

I thought the episode was great. I was kind of disappointed in seeing a holodeck though. You would figure that since they are friends, that the Feds would have holodeck technology a lot sooner than the TNG timeframe. It looks like Klingon Battle Cruiser design remained the same for over 100 years.

I also like the way T'Pol sits in the cap'ns chair.

So, just what do you do about the gazillions of teasers in between episodes. Last week, SU2 was filled with them. To borrow an old phrase, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a spoiler.

WIZDAR, Is this from 'ANGEL' ?

Gunn: “All I know is, you use the word “dick” again and we gonna have a problem.”

I thought it was an entertaining episode, but there's one thing that was really stupid.

'Here's some gelatinous cubes, it's the closest we could get to your water.' Then later on he's on a boat in the holodeck floating on water. I thought perhaps it would be some other fluid, but when he's back on the Enterprise describing it it's water and he says he could even smell the salt air.

Hooray for the awfulness of my local UPN affiliate!!! Tuned in last night, and after about five seconds it froze, and then the screen went blank, before evetually saying 'LOSS OF SIGNAL' and such. It remained that way for a good five minutes, so I popped
in a movie, and will have to catch the weekend syndication rerun.

Why is it the Klingons spoke English? According to the earlier episodes, the universal translator isn't exactly "universal" quite yet. (That's why we have Hoshi). But we have Klingons that actually speak Earth-tongue. What's up with that?

Selective use of continuity is a frustrating thing.

Oh and the new "Enterprise" cliche is getting a little annoying. I'm referring of course to the way the characters always make a note of precisely how many weeks they've been on their journey. If B&B were going to dive into this continuity thing, then they should just go balls-out. But unfortunately, I think the best we'll get is the occasional dialogue footnote about what happened with "species X" such-and-such weeks back.

*sigh*

I gotta say I was extremely disappointed to see a holodeck, even if it was on an alien craft.

And the crew's reaction was priceless. Yeah, just imagine what we could do with that (wink wink nudge nudge say no more say no more). Well, we've already seen what they do with it. Act out stuffy victorian ******** and bad gumshoe novels.

I always thought the holodeck was a cheap plot element and any story involving getting trapped on it or hoho characters coming to life was utterly pointless. I swear, if they build their own holodeck, I'm going to stop watching.

I agree (especially about the wink-wink part). Although, I did like Tucker's reaction when he said that he wouldn't even bother going on shoreleave if they had one.
