Trekathon 723: Kir’Shara (3) (ENT)

April 28th, 2013

The Vulcan High Command launches an attack on Andoria.

With the exception of administrator V’Las, I thought this worked very well as the reconciliation between TOS and later Vulcans and the Vulcans of Enterprise. V’Las, though, just goes too far over the edge. Maybe that’s meant to be a hint to his affiliations, but he goes far enough that the complicity of the other Vulcans doesn’t make a lot of sense.

But that’s a minor flaw in an otherwise fantastic episode. There’s plenty of Vulcan philosophy on the way out of the desert. And there’s some good character building stuff involving Shran (Enterprise’s best recurring character) and the Andorians. The final fleet battle sequence was an exciting and tense moment of a time that Star Trek doesn’t often allow.

723 down, 14 to go. Just two weeks now.
