Star Trek is for babies. He should have stuck to Quantum Leap.

It's great.

First season and a bit is a touch fan-servicey in so far as a lot of episodes revolve around giving us early glimpses of races that would feature prominently in the future of the Star Trek universe.

However, it gets better and keeps getting better. The two big arcs in the later series are great.

I think in the last series they knew they were getting cancelled and so could just concentrate on stuff for the fans as opposed to the general audience.

The mirror universe two parter where they manage to do a prequel to one TOS episode at the same time as a sequel to another is quite good.

No, you already have too many Star Trek threads.

I started watching it during the first lockdown (having previously worked my way through TOS, TNG, DS9 and V), but wasn't really getting on with it, and eventually stalled a few minutes into an episode that looked like it was going to be entirely in unsubtitled Ferengi.

I gave it a whole season to wow me and it was garbage. I remember there was an episode where Trip and Archer were marooned on a planet that was a thinly-disguised metaphor for Afghanistan, and I suddenly realised that I didn't care if they were rescued. That's when I knew it was really bad.

D'you remember how Shran calls Archer 'pink-skin' a lot? Wonder what he called Mayweather? Can just imagine him lying face down on a biobed whilst Phlox tries to extract a severed antenna from his arsehole, painfully enquiring with Archer about what the helmsman meant by "our word".

Don't be silly WB, you know Mayweather isn't allowed to speak or have plotlines or be interesting in any way.

That's true. Everytime there's a temporal time-up with other Treks he gets picked on by Harry Kim. Harry Kim!

Did it work, making it a prequel? Actually set before all the other series including the 1960s one...
Do prequels ever work really?

I like it how The Federation is basically America, Fuck Yeah! and Captain Archer has a cactus perpetually stuck up his arse

The point I bailed was the episode where Trip gets pregnant.

No joke, this one is a very good episode. Good performances from Clint Howard and Ethan Phillips. Good adherence to canon. The first ten mins is like a silent comedy and then it becomes a heist. A high point of Enterprise for me.

I don't generally care for Enterprise, I'm afraid. We tried to get into it after being teased with the idea of new Star Trek (with Discovery etc) and being very disappointed by it. Our attempt to "reclaim" Enterprise didn't really work but there are certainly things to commend it: the sets and West Wing-style walk-and-talks are good and the creative obstructions imposed by canon are interesting (albeit not always successful: I like the language problems but the transporter problems are annoying).

Also, Porthos is an 11/10 good dog.

I didn't think that one was particularly bad either! The aliens were far more interesting than your average forehead alien.

'Shuttlepod 1' was susprisingly good too, especially given how bland the characters usually are. It's a bottle show with two dudes drifting in a pod. Don't know why it works given the naff characters but it does.

Tucker & Reed as comedy buddy duo were definitely more than the sum of their parts, but in comparison to Bashir & O’Brien, the show never really committed to it.

(why is this in this forum, again?)

Didn't realise the Bakula was in it. I've got a few episodes recorded but never watched it. My gf and I watched many episodes of Quantum Leap together and I bought her a signed (probably printed) Scott Bakula picture so I might have a shot at turning her into a trekkie yet

Re-watched some of Enterprise recently and they only plot arc that stands up for me is the Romulan drone ships and the alliance built to combat them. Along with Voyager I find it a show full of nonsense plots, appalling characterization, and some of the most dimwittedly inadvertently offensive episodes of television to be curled out. There's a complete inability to hold characters to account, or even reflect on the downright criminal actions they perform. This may be going into projection territory but it comes across as Trek done by democrat style liberals, where the default is "we are the good guys" so good faith is assumed and any moral debate is perfunctory at best and quickly dismissed, where actions done by "them" are evil but when done by "us" are passionate pragmatism. Tack on an empty self serving speech addressing none of the complexities brought up and plough on once more with aggressive self righteousness.
