Saw another episode of Enterprise. Still not convinced that it's a good show.

This one involved Andorians seizing a Vulcan monastery on a distant planet, and Archer, Tucker, and T'Pol being taken hostage with the Vulcan monks. As soon as the head monk said that the Andorians believed that there was some kind of broadcasting array hidden in the monastery, I knew the "big surprise" of the episode: That the monks really were hiding an array, and the violent Andorians were right. How do the makers of this show hope to fool anyone who watches it regularly? Like I said in my last entry about Star Trek, it's time for the writers to do different things, to stop having the same twists all the time.

This episode was slightly better than the last one because they didn't dwell on what was, to the viewers, the obvious upcoming ending, but it was still a let-down. My favorite part was seeing Jeffrey Combs finally make the record that he's sought, playing more alien races on Trek than any other actor.

PS to Matt since I know you're reading this: If you're going to get involved in my Star Trek RPG (check your Yahoo mail account), please do so now. We need people to play!
