Star Trek Enterprise 2×13 – Dawn

Star Trek Enterprise 2×13 – Dawn

Trip has a not so friendly encounter with an Arkonian pilot named Zho’Kaan while testing the shuttlepod’s autopilot, leading to a short camping trip on the surface of a moon. Not so bad on its own, but turns out it can get to well over 250 degrees in the daylight and both ships were damaged in the descent. Leading to Enterprise’s very own Darmok/The Enemy episode.

The Orville 01×01 – Old Wounds

The new Seth MacFarlane joint, The Orville, premiered with what ended up feeling like a pretty strong episode.. At least to our tastes. While it isn’t perfect, there is a lot to be excited about in this first episode. If they can hammer out some of the dings as the series progresses, this could be a wonderful and much needed addition to the landscape of science fiction television.

Star Trek Enterprise 2×12 – The Catwalk

The Catwalk ended up being a pretty good Enterprise episode! The neutronic storm gives us some stellar phenomena for the crew to interact with, which is always fun. And there were a number of “Oh crap” moments that were very satisfying.  We ended up a bit disappointed and perhaps confused that the writers established the Takret as thoroughly as they did, especially the leader of the Takret Militia we met.. but then we never see the character again. Bummer.
