Trekathon 659: Vox Sola (ENT)

A strange goopy alien sneaks on board.

To summarise the episode: T’Pol is kind of a jerk to Hoshi, Hoshi is a bit uncertain of herself. Most of the rest are stuck to a wall. Hoshi and T’Pol work together and the day is saved.

It’s flat and relatively dull writing, but enlivened by what is some fairly effective direction and camerawork. And there’s a showdown between Phlox and Reed that informs us quite well about their respective characters.

Callbacks: the first proper force field we’ve seen.

659 down, 78 to go.
