||Every time I watch this episode I am reminded of why I do not like Vulcans, and why I so appreciated "Enterprise" for showing the dark, sinister, hypocritical side of Vulcan culture. It helps explain the Romulans. I'm no fan of the Maquis, but I have to agree with their objection to being bullied into submission by the likes of Tuvok to make them conform to Star Fleet, the very institution many of them consider their blood enemy. I wish this tension had been maintained throughout the episode, indeed through the series. It would have made the series more realistic and dramatically powerful. Unfortunately, the writers seem to have opted for a "happily ever after" conclusion that showed the Maquis that "all we like sheep have gone astray."
