As my husband and I are going through our second full watch of Star Trek as a couple, I thought it would be fun to report on the highlights along the way, so I decided to copy the same format as Charlene as she posted her journey with Star Trek.
I’m sad I’m finished with Enterprise and this Star Trek rewatch! However, I’m also excited to move on to something new after dedicating so much time to this endeavor! And I’m also excited that soon I will be sharing my top ten of all episodes of Star Trek! Spoiler alert: it’s going to be a lot of DS9.
A note about this list: this season was a lot of two and three episode arcs that are really hard to separate, and I didn’t like the standalone episodes from this season nearly as much, so I stopped at four, but it’s technically more than five. I just wanted to do it this way in order to best reflect my faves of the season. Now, without further ado, season four!
4. Storm Front Parts One and Two
I had really forgotten that the season three finale actually opened a new door in the Xindi story line to be resolved in this two-parter. The intensity of season three continues through these two episodes.
This is the arc in which Enterprise retcons the discrepancy between the Klingons’ appearance from the original series to the other series. I wasn’t as captivated with this arc as I was the first time, but they’re still a solid couple of episodes.
2. Demons/Terra Prime
A group of radical xenophobists create a bispecies baby from two Enterprise crew members to hold as an abomination and further their cause to rid Earth and its territories of aliens. Many consider Terra Prime the true finale of Enterprise and I concur whole-heartedly.
1. Borderland/Cold Station 12/The Augments
This arc explores what happened to some of the other genetically engineered augments from Khan’s time and their attempts to conquer other aliens as well as humans.
What are your thoughts on Enterprise season four? Did you feel the show was too short-lived? On a scale of 1 to 10, how enraged are you by the finale? (10 billion is my answer)
