||When I first saw this, I thought it was boring, basically worthy of a single star. The second time I watched it (reluctantly), I found myself starting to enjoy it. There are a few really good scenes, with the snowman antics and the excruciating dinner scene being laugh-out-loud funny. Trek doesn't do humour very often - surprising, considering the off-screen chaos the cast caused - and I feel it works well here. It would help if the Vulcans learned how to be polite. Surely it's only logical to show respect and courtesy, especially to your allies, in order to avoid offending everyone and looking like a prick, but Breaking the Ice actually uses this to its advantage and puts the Vulcan captain squarely in the wrong. Oh, and if the Vulcans are always following Enterprise, we should have seen this in several episodes as a running theme (which would have added tension, cohesion and drama).
