Hey, we’re on a roll. Let’s keep going.
Maybe they’ll finally defeat the Xindi or whatever it is they’re doing.
Oh yea, there were marines or something on board. Wow, that whole recap covered everything, didn’t it? Even the Vulcan neuropressure, which I had also managed to forget about!
Hey, new chick. Why? So she can kiss Paris.
La la, intro. Hey, the first space shuttle was named after the starship Enterprise. What if the first starship was named after the first space shuttle? Oooooo.
The marines are called MACOS. Which makes me think two things:
Uh-oh, better get Maaco.
A bunch of girls named Meiko.
Oh, heh, I just confused Trip with Tom Paris. Wrong series. I’m not going to go back and edit it.
I suppose they’ve given me the character episode I wanted. I just.. one of them is a rivalry between Malcolm and the MACO guy. Which, blah. And the other one is T’Pol being jealous of the MACO chick. And an excuse to have a sexay lesbian neuropressure scene.
Commercials for Face Off make me want to see another season of it.
If Malcolm and the MACO guy had just had their little fight months ago, it would’ve saved us all half of this episode. Not that the other half of it was better, mind.
Er, wait, what? Now the episode is over?
Malcolm/MACO + fight = solved
Trip/T’Pol + sex = solved
Trip/MACO + ????? = ?????
Archer/Alien + “Tell me what you know!” = ????
Oh bother. This one isn’t on the Tivo. Plus it doesn’t look like I thought to grab it yet.
Okay, about 3 hours later, I have it and I’m done being distracted by schoolwork and chatting. Onward!
I was going to say… there’s something cool about watching it on my computer on a flat screen. But it’s actually that the quality is better than the LP recordings my Tivo was making.
I still think it’s very futuristic to watch things on an iphone. Like the shuttle launch! And it’s just extra high-tech to do stuff like that with Star Trek and other science fiction. Not that I’m watching this on my iphone, though I suppose I could if I wanted the hassle.
Oh sure, having the crew all in comas gives him time to catch up on his correspondence. Except that he’s supposed to be checking something in engineering every two hours. And he seems to be checking up on each crewmember individually. Even if he only does that once a day, that should take him most of the day. Plus he has all those animals he’s always taking care of. He doesn’t, like, sleep, but I don’t see how this gives him more time than usual.
Phlox is eating popcorn. I might have to have some popcorn later. Maybe while watching Doctor Who.
Was T’Pol actually there all that time? Because it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Archer said he’s trusting the ship to Phlox and Mayweather and Trip gave him instructions. And it just seems the science officer would be better-equipped to do all of those things. So I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt that T’Pol is not actually there, but also in a coma.
She never touched the food, so I’m inclined to think she’s not really there.
Or it could all be a double fakeout and I’m supposed to think he’s hallucinating her when he’s really not.
I was wondering why he wasn’t talking to the computer at all, but this computer doesn’t talk, does it?
Of course he said he hasn’t slept much! He doesn’t sleep much!
She seems to be standing particularly unnaturally, probably because she the actress was told ‘Don’t touch anything’. So she’s not sure what to do with her hands.
No fakeout. They weren’t that sophisticated. The only thing I’m left wondering is if he hallucinated them not being out of the field and his whole going to warp thing was unnecessary.
