Review : If TNG hadn't already done this episode, it might have been passable. But the xenophobia plotline and Archer needing to climb a rock and get it on with a girl to move on plotline felt flat to me. The love triangle between T'Pol, Koss and Trip was effective. Not a bad episode.

Review : This episode has two plotlines: Archer getting it on with Hernandez and recovering emotionally after a hard battle (deja vu, anyone?) and T'Pol with Trip on Vulcan. The Archer plotline...actually kinda works. It's odd, but it does an excellent job of showing how Enterprise has changed: for the better. And, then...the Vulcans. So...there's arranged marriages. And the only way to get out of them is for the guy to change his mind (inequality in a logic-based society) or a fight to the death (we moved on from that about...two thousand, three thousand years ago?). Really, this episode mangles Vulcan culture to the extreme. Fortunately, T'Pol and Tucker seem to save the plotline...just. Emphasis, please, on the "just".

Review : An episode where, to be honest, not very much happened, and that was rather dull. OK, we did see a few interesting moments, perhaps as hints of what was to come, but they were spread very thinly and most of the rest seemed to be 'filler' to cover for this. One gets the sense that the writer was trying to do something like TNG's "Family", but simply didn't have the cast or direction to back it up. We had some insights into civilian life, plus the political backgrounds on Earth and Vulcan, and T'Pol's family. However, that tells us little more than a couple of scenes could have done in the next episode. Captain Hernandez made for a decent character (I found myself hoping she and Archer would swap ships at one point). There was also the business of xenophobia on Earth, which makes some sense (remember, this is a post-September 11th episode) and might have made a decent episode had it been explored further. Finally, there was Soval giving Archer a hard time (as ever) during the debrief, which again might have provided more interest if explored. Verdict, a bit dull, but otherwise nothing specifically wrong with it.
