Trekathon 651: Sleeping Dogs (ENT)

February 15th, 2013

Enterprise rescues a ship lost in a gas giant.

A nice little action-exploration story, which managed to not get sunk on the shoals of ‘stupid Klingon stuff’. The material with Reed, T’Pol and Hoshi on the ship was particularly good. The earlier ‘Hoshi is scared to go on missions’ stuff was boring, this is much more interesting with Hoshi having a much more honest emotional arc. The part with T’Pol helping Hoshi was a nice touch.

But I have a complaint about Archer – he’s encountered the Klingons several times now and he’s only now deciding to read the database? Yikes!

Callbacks: the first mention of photon torpedoes.

651 down, 86 to go.
