Trekathon 663: Shockwave (1) (ENT)

February 27th, 2013

Enterprise blows up a planet.

An episode of two halves. Fortunately two halves of reasonable strength for a change. The first part is the crew dealing with a terrible tragedy they think they’ve caused. T’Pol’s lack of understanding comes across as a bit artificial, but we do feel that Archer is genuinely upset about what’s happening.

The second half twists the plot, and suddenly we’re in an action heavy sequence driven by the erratic time travel plot. The action sequence works well, and while the Suliban attack is a bit arch it leads nicely into a fairly good cliffhanger.

663 down, 74 to go.
