Similitude made me weep a bit. ST: Enterprise is the most realistic of all of the ST shows but sometimes the characters are a bit out of character without any repercussions.


Archer definitely faced a lot of win-lose situations that tested his ethics. I am not really sure if I like everything that he did or the fact that he never dealt with his decisions emotionally.

I loved Similitude for all the reasons mentioned, as well as the unique view we get of Trip, but NOT Trip, growing up.....what he was like as a baby, toddler, child, teen, and young adult. Amazing backstory, unique in that we could 'fall in love' with Trip in all stages of his life. No wonder we have such a devoted response to this character. Not to mention the stellar performance by Trinneer, creating two beautifully nuanced characters so realistically, so that you could empathize with both of them. Cry for Sim's sacrifice and lost life, love, future, pray for Trip's survival and recovery back to our ENT crew. Connor made you want both of them, as different people. Wow!

TRIP:I'm only kidding. You look nice like this. Kind of like an old oil painting. T'POL:I'm not old. I will only be sixty six years old on my next birthday. TRIP:I can't believe you told me that. T'POL:You accused me of looking old. TRIP:That's not what I mean. I've been trying to get you to tell me your age since we left Spacedock. Why now? T'POL:To Vulcans, certain information is considered intimate. TRIP:Intimate?

I was shaken by this episode as well.

As for emotions, Archer was a "war time" leader. He couldn't afford to get emotional or even reflect on his decisions at the time. As a leader he had to take responsibility for the consequences and keep pushing forward until the goals were achieved. All his internal struggle was left for Season 4 "Home".

Peace through superior firepower....

You took words right out of my mouth! Connor Trinneer is a stage trained actor - he is GOOD. I am going through episodes of Stargate Atlantis. He played a villain there - I want to see what he had done with that character.

Trip's character was written well. It was developed more than others. Similitude had some awesome writing as well. I think it was Manny Coto's writing job within the Series; he went on to write and produce the best episodes that made the Enterprise great.

Great reoccurring role.


Awesome!!! I am still on season 1. Thanks, Yanks; it is in Season 2 - I am so looking forward to it.

Season 3 is still running here...but I have to say it is one of the best seasons. Very emotional...

I am on Stargate Atlantis season 3, so I just saw the first 4 Michael-related episodes. They should not have put Connor Trinneer in such a heavy make up. A big part of his acting are his facial expressions - this is how he relays emotions and it is one of his biggest strengths as an actor. Because of the mask-like make-up, this was lost.

The story line is good, though considering how strong of a dramatic actor Connor is, it should have had more internal struggle, rather than external anger. I have not seen the other 6 episodes with his character; maybe they gave Michael more depth.

Season three has several elements to the 'big three' there, which stand out....Jonathan, having had this terrible weight of responsibility thrust upon him-that is, after learning the truth from Silik, he makes the choice, to do whatever is necessary, and carries this intent through the arc of the season, pushing the boundaries of what, prior, he would have thought twice about,to say the least, as with the ep with the ship he chose to take the parts from, and move on ,ealving them stranded in space...Trip, feeling the most personal effect because of his loss at home, filled with anger, determined to get back at the Xindi...I loved the touching ep, where he in the death of a junior engineer, sees his sister, mirrored..and is finally able to mourn her properly. And then, he finds it in himself, to work with the Xindi who created the very weapon that cost him, and so many others, so much.....T'Pol, showing, if there was much doubt, her loyalty to Jonathan by going against Soval's counsel, and joining the crew, cementing her place on Enterprise..and then, her 'problem' she kept hidden for months from everyone...though it was a neagtive effect on her, I found the emotional 'outburst' she experienced, upon thinking that Archer was dead-seeing her in his Ready Room, alone...it's one of the most tender, touching, and significant moments of S3. I do think, though, that I was probably ready for them to finish this all by the time it rolled towards a conclusion..but there was good material therein along the way...and the turnaround for Archer, thanks to Daniels, the work with Degra...very good material to watch. And seeing a certain future ship. I thought S3 had quite a bit going for it.

HI, tishkajaku! THANK YOU so much for the heartfelt welcome. It truly pleases me for such, and thanks for appreciating my comments. I really don't consider myself an overly analytical fan-I just know what I like, and why-but, like anyone, I have moments, and eps which stick out in my mind, and remain favorites.  But, I suppose I can churn out an analysis sometimes, if the mood strikes....must be the Vulcan in me,,LOL...Enterprise so often seems so put-upon, how refreshing, to 'walk' amongst those who do like the series. I met Anthony Montgomery-just he and I, how cool is that!?-Saturday during Vegascon, while riding in an elevator, and got to tell him what a big STE fan I was. I told him he was a nice guy, as well.
