    The end of that episode ranks up there with the cliff hanger of TNG episode "Best of Both Worlds".

    And I got to see it in HD so it looked even more impressive.

    Things have definitely got back on track after two disappointing episodes earlier.

    The worst part is that the next new episode isn't until April 21st!!! :mad:

    I liked this episode a lot. I usually like it when they bring in the time-travelling aspects. It's my theory that this whole series is going end up to be one huge alternate reality 'timeline' that will self-right itself to "normal" Trek continuity when the series ends. Like the "Yesterday's Enterprise" episode from TNG, and the "Year of Hell" episodes from Voyager, but for the whole series.

    Well, I will have to admit, that was an aweful fast 44 minutes of program. I enjoyed the episode, but I wont work myself up over the solution coming up. Anyway, unless there is some "alternate reality" coming up on the next episode, there is no way in hell the Enterprise is going to make it back to space dock on Earth.

    So at least we now know who is behind the temporal cold war! Not that I care too much about it.

    Anyway, the roots of this episode are burried deep it "real" trekdom, though the roles are reversed. It is the "bad guy" Zindi who is questioning the fruits of his labor a la the Manhattan Project scientist. A small but significant portion of the story was devoted to this. I suspect that more will be devoted in the conclusion.

    I was a little disappointed in Archer's dialog with the scientists. The character seemed out of character by not having the right responses at hand and not better being able to relate the paradox that confronts them.

    But all in all, it was a good episode, and now we know that there will be at least 4 more Enterprises for Riker to crash into planets or get used as target practice in tight quarters before some one takes the command chair away from him! :)

    See ya

    Speaking of spoilers, on some Trek fan sites, they examine the production notes to help generate info on future episodes. Rumor has it that Enterprise gets unexpected help in its repairs. (Those floating dudes are history, though.) I also hear that the story line will continue all the way to the final episode of the season (at least).

    Well one can pretty much predict:

    1. Enterprise will not be destroyed. The reptilians will suddenly be forced to stop attacking.

    2. Peace with the Xendi (sp?) will suddenly happen and the weapon will not be used against Earth

    3. Somehow, someway Enterprise will be fixed and will be able to return to earth (perhaps the Xendi take it back to Earth or repair it).

    4. The crew will all be heros for saving Earth

    All of the above needs to happen for the series to continue.

    It was hard to keep from looking at this thread until I watched the episode. :)

    Good stuff. Like Tony said, it was a fast 44 minutes. The did leave a good open end though. If the Enterprise had blown up, you know the next episode would have explained away this episode as an alternate reality. The way this one ended though, its hard to tell what will happen.

    As boring as this show gets sometimes, I seem to always walk away satisfied which is why I'm still watching. I'm enjoying the character development (although I'm kind of getting sick of Archer's maverick attitude).

    Looking forward to the next new episode. Should be a good one.

    I'm having a problem with Archer's consistency, or lack there of. In one instance he is level-headed and goes against the snap judgements of some of his crew in favor of a more diplomatic or reasoned approach to a problem. But then in another instance he flies off the handle and becomes a neanderthal, going no-holes-barred into the fray. At least with Picard, you always knew how he would react to a situation, his character was consistent and believable. Not so with Archer.

    Okay, you've convinced me. I'm going to record Enterprise this weekend, but I'm still not setting up a season pass.

    I loved the episode..... I had the same heart pounding experience that I had when I watched Yesterday's Enterprise (although I didn't get the big "Let's make sure history never forgets the name.... Enterprise" speech that happened before Picard sacrificied his ship for the sake of the past Enterprise). I didn't agree with Archer's motivation to nuke the weapon, while ignoring the diplomatic solution first, but then signing on to it after he was captured. Other than that it was as good as it gets. Seeing the Enterprise torn up was surprisingly effective.

    Can't believe I have to wait six weeks to see the next new one though..........

    Actually, are you with me in that you wish the next ST Series to be set in that universe Archer visited? I miss the epic fleet battles that we had on DS9.....

    IMO "Azati Prime" Great episode!

    "Enterprise"
    best "current" "series" on tv!

    (just don't do ones like "North Star")
