I searched for carnivorous plant. I searched forTars Tarkas. I searched for Enterprise. But I came up dry…so here is the double-double scoop with just my usual random chatter about both.
–A feisty Irish Vulcan. I rather liked her.
–Were the starshippers clever, or were the Mazarians easily duped? You be da judge.
–They tried to go to Risa. They failed. And Trip had a nice luau shirt on.
–Apparently, female Vulcans don’t suffer from Pon Farr (T’Pring didn’t seem to). And T’Pol has no problem talkin’ 'bout sex with the guys at the dinner table.
–Phlox wore green. And Archer’s quarters are a bit more colorful.
–With my “Memento” style short term memory, I’m fading on this. I have fresher memories of the next ep:
–Ah. Some allegorical/parallel stuff re: the Middle East. I got it.
–They tried to go to Risa again. And failed. Poor Porthos may never get that run on the beach. I’d be in the mood for a canine mutiny, were I Porthos.
–Archer and Trip sweat. Archer and Trip hold on to each other a lot. Archer and Trip eat balls for dinner. There are no women in sight in the desert guy’s realm. Archer told Trip he thought T. would like to spend some time with his captain. Trip nearly dies in the desert. If I were Trip, I’d tell Archer to shine it the next time he asks if they can hang out together.
–Archer screwed up by rescuing those Suliban in “Detained.” The question is: Will he ever realize it?
