once again i must voice my displeasure that the vampires from Nemesis are here

everything connected with that movie should have been loaded onto a rocket and fired at the sun

okay i like these guys and their plan. this is a good plan. let's make this happen

it's weird that telepathy is a scifi mainstay when you think about it
its pretty much magic

hold up

they have 'brain wave patterns' from the person operating the drone ship and archer asks if he can identify the species
and phlox says the nearest 'genome' is andorian

but

you said all you had was brain wave patterns. i even went back to double check.

how does that-?

what do the writers think genomes are? what do they think brain waves are? what's happening right now?

so turns out the blind andorian is a member of an andorian subspecies that was thought to be a myth until FIFTY YEARS AGO when the andorians found them on their own damn planet

um, what?

andorians have been warp capable for long enough to have a good feud going with the vulcans. had they never used that level of tech to scan their own goddamn planet until 50 years ago?

so far this episode has been a steady barrage of nonsense

but it does have Jeffrey Combs :blobheartcat:

shran and archer go to andoria to talk to the blind andorians i forget what they said they were called

and i don't guess there's much chance shran is going to shove archer off an ice cliff and tell everyone he slipped

i mean, come on shran, who's gonna know?

phlox's make up looks weird

is it normally that dark on the side of his face?

could be a lighting problem but what am i saying? poorly handled lighting? on enterprise? surely not

wait. these andorians - are anarchists? 😮

okay aenar. theyr'e called aenar

also they asked for permission before using their telepathy which is refreshing

normally in the trek universe it never even occurs to anyone that this might be a thing that requires consent

Show thread

shran has a scene with one of the aenar and it's actually a good scene, nothing really happens in it but it's good character stuff, very low key and Jeffrey Combs helps but still

i don't get to say nice things about ENT very often so there you go

and then the romulans are boring for a while and phlox puts t'pol in this machine

the one aenar makes telepathic contact with the other one and he makes the drone ship fire on each other and then he dies

tucker, those are the sweetest words you've ever said

tucker doesn't want to discuss his relationship issues and personal feelings with his commanding officer

archer presses him to , fails, then resorts to emotional manipulation

fuck archer, seriously

archer agrees to give tucker the transfer

the end

i like Shran and I liked all the aenar stuff but this three parter was boring as hell

if the whole thing had been about the aenar that might have been better

also, archer is a dick

@Taweret why does he have a window air conditioner in his quarters, and why is it not in the window?

re: personal log stardate 96915.41 i continue to complain about enterprise 

@Taweret ffft, after like three near-killings I'm having difficulty getting emotionally invested in Tucker getting transferred away (to a nice farm upstate where he can run and play in the grass and be happy)
