it's remarkable how dark it is in this room consider the size of that curtainless window and how sunny it is outside

what the fuck are the vampires from Nemesis doing here?

i thought we all agreed not to acknowledge or speak of Nemesis ever again under penalty of torture

also why more vampire-looking aliens when the nazi aliens from a few eps back also looked like vampires?
they plan seasons out in advance. they knew they were going to bring these guys in so why make the nazi aliens look so much like them?

have i mentioned before that Bakula is just not very good acting-wise? he is not

i mean i hate tucker as a character but the actor is fine

and i hate that they made phlox do monstrous things because that actor is awesome actually

but bakula is just bad and no matter how they wrote the character it always would have been brought down by that

as far as what's going on in the ep, tucker and reed are still trying to take control of the remote controlled romulan ship

the romulans are standing around being more boring than romulans have any right to be

and archer is mansplaining to the tellarite and shran

these things are happening in three separate and very dark locations

(sorry having a hard time thinking of things to say about this ep. it's really dull and i've spent most of it so far trying to guess which characters will die in the next GoT 🤷 )

shran's gf dies and he's upset about so he takes some of her blood and pours in on the tellarite hand
i can definitely see where that would really upset a person and serve as a threat but it's also pretty weird

apparently one of the writers had recently seen lawrence of arabia because archer uses the same argument here that peter o'toole does when he volunteers to execute that one guy except archer is volunteering to be killed which i'm totally on board with

i have lawrence of arabia on dvd. i should watch it again some time. it's good. it's better than this

okay they didn't do the tng thing
archer just cuts off of shran's antenna

also i complained about this before when archer was fighting off vulcans like they were nothing
he shouldn't be able to take shran either. they spent half the ep playing up andorian combat training and how good shran was

@Taweret I'm always amused by the random sound effect captions. I assume there's a pig under the table and that's what's [GRUNTING]

re: personal log stardate 96912.66 i continue to complain about enterprise 

@Taweret for a minute I parsed that as "someone shipped Tucker/Reed and now it's blowing up" and that's such a more entertaining mental image. would probably be a better story too.

@Taweret but hey they are still talking about archer so...

re: personal log stardate 96912.66 i continue to complain about enterprise 

@Taweret oh hey, Hoshi's not still dead, I wondered about that. cool cool. (at least I assume she's not dead, given that she's having an ~actual conversation~ with ~Tucker~ it could be a simulation or hallucination or something idk)

Archer being beheaded in a duel would have been an amazing season finale btw.

Maybe Shran could be the new captain, since he killed Archer, it's only fair that he gains Archer's powers

@Taweret

Archer's severed head is kept alive in a jar while Phlox makes one of his clone things. The clone takes some ethics classes from Shran, the rest of the crew decide to keep clone-Archer while Archer's head keeps screaming in horror to put him on the clones body. T'pol then demonstrates to Shran what a field-goal kick is and Archer's head flies off in the distance.

@Tau_Leonis @Taweret I like this so much better than any possible way they could have ended the episode. 💚

@Taweret can I just say that I love that Andor received a broadcast of the Beat It video and decided to base their trial by combat on it

@Taweret That film is from the right era to be one of their recent movie nights.
