Episode 49 – Similitude

Andy and Jessica talk:

  • Really good old fashioned Star Trek story
  • Trip has died!
  • The acting has gotten much better. Thanks, LeVar!
  • What could they have explored?!
  • Archer dealing with the order to make him and kill him
  • Designer babies and My Sister's Keeper.
  • Phlox. Awwww.
  • The 3rd season's aggressiveness and willingness to play the bad guy
  • What the Xindi storyline means

Andy’s Extra Helping of Episodes

  • Home (season 4, episode 03) - The Enterprise returns to Earth (with a quick drop off of T’Pol and Tripp on Vulcan) and Archer deals with his mission not being what he was hoping for and his anger. Also Phlox deals with xenophobic humans.
  • Borderland / Cold Station 12 / The Augments (season 4, episode 4-6) - Remember Khan? These guys are part of that bygone era of genetic augments. Oh, and they have a father, Dr. Arik Soong, played by Brent Spiner (Data)
  • Whom Gods Destroy (TOS throwback! season 3, episode 16) - You can meet Marta, the Orion Girl played by Yvonne Craig. Maybe not the best version of Orion, considering she is criminally insane...


Next Up: Bound

Andy's gone crazy and has decided to get to the 17th episode of the 4th season where they retcon the Orion slave girls.

Jessica's prediction is Enterprise is going to run into the (twist!) madames who actually own the slave girls. Archer's definitely going to get kissed.
