||Really, this was the last proper Star Trek episode of any kind (TATV doesn't count in my book) and it was a good one. Paxton was curious, and proved to be a hypocrite in many ways. He wouldn't be the first to confuse his opinions with fact, or let it get in the way of his judgement. It's good to know that he will get his just deserts rather than simply being killed off. Still, he left himself very much open to an attack such as this, or simply a strike from orbit. Archer's alternative, with the bombardment in reserve, seemed much more sensible, and it's a good thing that Starfleet listens to it's captains sometimes. Incidentally, diverting comets towards the Martian poles is actually a good idea (one theory suggests that Earth's water has a cometary origin). Maybe the details were off, but that ride down the comet's tail was a great way to perform the insertion (although Reedy might not agree). Anyway, the ending was handled well and convincingly, highly charged with emotion. Jolene Blalock did very well in showing T'Pol trying to keep her emotions under control, but not quite succeeding (maybe she really has learnt to act). It was also a nice touch that they named the baby Elizabeth. We had plenty of unanswered questions as well. Will this bring Trip and T'Pol closer together? Will the conference be a success, giving us closer co-operation between species? Will Mayweather and Gannet ever meet again (which might have given him more screen time)? We'll never know. Still, a good episode to finish with.
