Well, not nearly as fun as First Flight. Apparently Trip and Archer
took a little vacation to patch things up (and IT WORKED!) All
trace of Cogenitor tension is gone; that's a loss to the storytelling
but a win for seeing the two of them happy around each other.
Trip!Quote #1: Trip and Archer kid each other about how they
ended up sliding down a hillside. Trip blames Archer for
'loosening' a rock just before he stepped on it. Trip: "You *do*
weigh a few kilos more than I do." :-O Deleted line: "At least
that's what if feels like." >:-)
Sweaty!Dirty!Bashedup!Trip makes another appearance, as do
the very sexy and stylish tan uniforms. <swoon> How *does* he
make falling down a mountainside look SO GOOD?!??!
Tellarites: Picture the Cowardly Lion at about 155 years old.
Trip: I've got an old girlfriend... :-( Well, she's nowhere around
ZAP! Trip takes one in the chest, again. Another notch on evay's
Finally, a good teaser. YES, all the above came from the teaser.
Long, interesting, dramatic and tense. About time.
Phlox/T'Pol Decon. <8-( I didn't need to see that. Decon!Phlox
goes shirtless!! MY EYES!!
Still, he did say "Commander Tucker is quite capable." Gotta
Funniest line (T'Pol): "I wasn't aware a curtain was installed. "
Deleted line: "Because I sure could have used it about 10
InCommand!Trip- very very very very sexy. "Set a course!"
Nothing stops him when Archer is in danger. "Go to tactical
alert." (Reed's face lights up) The beacon is a decoy!
Trip: "Then get rid of it."
Reed: "With pleasure, sir!" Yes, I'm sure.
Just so-so Bounty Hunter scenes, funny, Archer looks a bit more
brave and mature.
Embarrassed!T'Pol gets horny. Horny from a microbial
Funniest line (Phlox): "You're disturbing my serum!" Deleted
line: "*And* all these vials on the table, too."
Trip appears in sickbay *BEARING FOOD*. What a motif. What
He stares quizzically through the glass as she targets him.
Trip: "Is she all right?"
Phlox shoves her back in the chamber. "Fine."
Trip: "Call if you need anything..." + a great TRIP LOOK.
Polite!Trip and the alien - "Sorry to bother you..."
Tough!Trip and the alien - "LOOK, ..."
More Archer and the Bounty Hunter scenes. Boy, Archer really
knows how to lay on a guilt trip.
More embarrassing T'Pol scenes, some with Reed.
"Malcom, I need your assistance." She'll never live that one
down. "I've seen the way you look at me.. on the bridge." Stinky
will have to change his name to Spanky for a while.
Nagging questions: Why does Archer pick a fight with a Klingon,
and How does he win it?
The *GRAPPLER*? Good Grief, sell that piece of crap to some
cargo ship and get a real tractor beam. They would have been
peeling Archer off the walls with the whiplash that thing
Trip is just excellent in charge. Very focused, very calm, very
Archer returns to a VERY cheery greeting from Trip, and pats Trip
on the shoulder. <swoon>
Something for A*T shippers, for T*R shippers, for R*T'P
shippers, for T*T'P shippers and even Phl/T'P shippers
Not the best ever, but aside from T'Pol's 'condition' it felt like a
real Trek ep.
Expanse Promo!!!!!! "Find the people who did this!" OH MY OH
MY I'm gonna like SeasonThree!Trip. Yessiree.
