Opinioanted Enterprise Episode Guide looks at a combination of the Xindi conflict and the Temporal Cold War, which goes together like ice cream and salsa. Archer and T'Pol must race against the clock to be as unlikable as humanly possible in their efforts to stop a rogue Xindi weapon to destroy humanity being made in Detroit, and it is not the Kia.

I stopped watching Enterprise, so I have never seen this episode.

Wow, I forgot that Jeffery Dean Morgan was in this episode. What a complete waste of that guy's talent; I thought he was underused as John Winchester on Supernatural, but this is just ridiculous.

Also, +10 for mentioning Braga's hardon for 24. Ironic a bit, because Manny Coto brought him onto that show during the last season... and his episodes were not bad at all.

One of the episodes that made me hate Enterprise.

It actually kind of pained me to learn that Star Trek made Jeffery Dean Morgan feel like quitting the business. :(

I think Braga can be a good writer, when it comes to single episodes. His troubles were probably story arcs, and being a show runner having to dream up a season long story. He's probably strongest at stories that wake the audience go "What the fuck?" Like in Cause and Effect where the episode teaser ends with the Enterprise blowing up, or Genesis, when Picard and Data find the Enterprise is overrun with de-evolved crewmen. I enjoyed those episodes.

Chuck said in a Voyager review that Braga is a multiply force, put him with a good writer and story idea and he can make it better, but give him crap and he will manage to ferment it.

It is funny, until you realize it actually aired...

Always?

Alright it isn't word for word, but it's close enough.
