I meant to note in the last entry that I noticed Duras showed up and remembered him from the House of Duras. But I didn’t remember him from any previous Enterprise episode. I guess I missed him.
Wow, an actual insectoid alien. They’re going all-out this ep.
Okay, while it’s cool to hear the insect talking in insect language.. it doesn’t make any bloody sense. He/she/it is speaking his/her/its own language, but all the other aliens are speaking English? Noo.. there’s probably translators involved. In which case we should be treated to hearing the insect in English. Or everyone else in their own languages.
Oh, marine aliens too. They don’t get to speak English either.
Eek. New theme song. Well, same song, different arrangement.
I’m going to react typically and say I don’t like it and I preferred the old one! It seems the wrong tempo for the visuals, which weren’t changed.
Daniel Dae Kim! Which is totally odd because with part of that dialogue in subtitles and part not, I did think of the Korean spoken on Lost. Maybe I was prescient. I should’ve typed it at the time I thought it!
Military Assault Command. Do you want to guess how many of the 4 of them we see here are female?
Hayes sounds like a Brit trying to sound American. Or maybe just someone trying to sound like military/political American. Born in La Jolla, so so much for that first theory. :) Doesn’t surprise me to see he played a Kennedy twice.
Grav plating going screwy. Definitely went all out with the effects!
T’Pol has new hair. And I hate it.
Vulcans have a form of neuropressure.
T’Pol is Vulcan.
Therefore T’Pol knows how to administer Vulcan neuropressure.
Also, it’s a cure for grief. Apparently.
Well, I’ve already had a lot to say about this episode only 14 minutes in! It must at least not be boring! Then again, as the first ep of a new season, it has a leg up on the interesting.
Trip as a kid. I love seeing Trek chars as kids. One of the best eps of TNG was, drat, the title escapes me. The one with Guinan and Ro and.. somebody else as kids.
SyFy has this little popup in the corner advertising their shows. This one pops up with two guys and I keep thinking it’s an ad for Merlin, but it’s for Ghost Hunters. Dude should not be allowed to wear the same type of clothes as Merlin. Though at least he’s not wearing a red scarf.
T’Pol has a new skintight outfit, but somehow I like it a little better. It has a very low V-neckline, but her chest isn’t quite so large in it.
You know walking in sewage isn’t just gross. It’s entirely unhealthy. And, as they say, it’s the waste of 31 different species. I find it hard to believe the air isn’t toxic to some degree.
I don’t think that’s the whole story, Malcolm. You’ve got this team of army types on board, it makes sense to use them so they don’t get restless and get in the way of the crew. For a landing mission, it makes perfect sense to use them. Makes a little less sense for Malcolm to command them.
And of course neuropressure is best performed by someone wearing a robe.
Subterfuge.. and.. my head! That is the worst pajama top EVER! It has one button. Right in the middle of her boobs.
Not that it stayed on for more than 2 seconds.
And now we literally get a shot of her covering her boobs with her hands!
You know after the first episode, I was willing to cut the show some slack. It wasn’t all about the sex. Not all the time. There were episodes, sometimes even more than one in a row, where everyone stayed fully clothed. But this is just unbelievable.
If I don’t see a male bum within 3 episodes to make up for this…
So we’re in the middle of what might be called The Expanse Arc. Rather than flitting about episode to episode finding adventures. I don’t think I prefer Star Trek that way. With an ongoing plot. Because it tends to be the ongoing plot doesn’t interest me very much. Voyager trying to get home is sort of halfway between the wandering about and the ongoing plot. They’re wandering about in a specific direction.
Well, we’ll see where it goes. And what they have left to do with T’Pol. Probably be seeing her bum.
Anamoly. You know what would be an anamoly? An episode with more than 4 women in it. I think their average has to be like 2.1.
A chick’s name in the credits!! Gasp, shock.
Oh wait, and maybe here she is. A crewmember. Odds on her dying? Or odds on her almost-kissing someone?
Oh, or maybe freaking out, or being possessed by something. Got to be one of the four, or maybe two of them.
Otherwise why is she here? Maybe Sato wanted the week off.
Fuller’s dead. But Fuller isn’t the chick. Fuller might be a chick, but unlikely.
Hey, I think she lived. How did that happen?
