Star Trek Enterprise 09-24-03

Episode Title: 'Extinction'
On a mission to investigate an abandoned Xindi vessel on a jungle planet, Archer, Reed and Hoshi succumb to a virus that mutates them into a primal life form.
Written By: Andre Bormanis
Directed By: LeVar Burton

Here's a screen capture from the advanced tape of the show, guess the name change is official:


Next step: theme song

The good: no B&B writing for the second week in a row
The bad: the plot seems to borrow a bit from the Next Gen episode "Genesis". (huh, Braga wrote that one: shocking)

First and only time, I promise. I find it insulting myself, but was just drawing attention to it.

Anyone else think the title of this week's episode is an omen as to where the show is heading?

Nope.

A new series would have already been history by now.

You're forgetting what the P in UPN stands for.

Way to ruin an otherwise good morning, Chew. This is the kind of thing I would have expected from Chew9.

Adding Star Trek to the title doesn't bother me that much. What really bothers me is the new version of the theme song. They just made it worse! The good news is that I have enjoyed the first two episodes of the new season....so far. I just wish Beavis and Butthead would be fired so they can hire competent writers to do the series some justice.

I had that changed a long time ago, I wouldn't of expected anybody to remember. Especially since I barely posted in my first three years with the Chew9 handle.

Cripes, first das insults me on Ultraviolet, now Enterprise. I'm gonna get a complex.

Maybe Hoshi will get nekkid in her primal state of mind. Hopefully before she changes too much physically.

Fixed.
On a mission to investigate an abandoned Xindi vessel on a jungle planet, Archer, Reed and Hoshi succumb to a virus that mutates them into primal life forms similar to that known as Braga, Berman & Hammer. After figuring a way off the planet, they head back to terra firma where they quickly become network heads whose idea of "creativity" consists of entire episodes of characters rubbing each other down in a decontamination chamber and adding "Steven Spielberg Presents:" to every show title.

I just checked my TiVo, and it says Stephen Spielberg Presents Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek Enterprise.

This MSNBC article starts out okay, but by the end I was just shaking my head and murmuring "no no no no no no..."

Yup, I was following along nicely until we got to the bulleted list at the end.

"Trek fans may stay for the thinly veiled commentary on society, but they come for the sci-fi action." ?????

That sentence was written by someone who has never once actually met a Trek fan.

I really disliked this show and barely watched it. This season I decided to re-visit it. I like the new direction it's going. Finally an atypical Captain with attitude. T'pol's boobies don't hurt either.

Wow. That may actually be the dumbest thing anyone's ever written about Trek, and that's tough. Brian Bellmont ... Brannon Braga ... yeah, it's him.

The name change affected my TiVo: Enterprise no longer appears as a program and the Season Pass won't pick it up. I had to program a Pass for Star Trek: Enterprise. This must of just happened today.

Thanks for the tip, Chew. I'll check when I get home.

Not that I would consider wasting a Season Pass for this, you unnerstand...

I just got home tonight at 8:45 and I was surprised to see my Tivo was not recording anything. I checked my To Do list and was surprised to see the recording history said Enterprise was not recorded because "This episode no longer appears in the channell guide."

A quick check of my UPN channel revealed it was called "Star Trek: Enterprise."

Bloody hell! Thankfully they repeat the episodes on Sunday night. But geez. You would have thunk the Tivo would have caught the name change or something.

My To Do List was fine for tonight when I checked it yesterday.

Glad this isn't a good show or anything.
