I think I need to watch the enterprise episode Damage.
I thought it was this series take on “The Naked Time” with the uninhibited behavior being passed by contact with the infected crew member’s sweat.Episode 3 has me bewildered.
Considering the aliens saved Pike and Spock you'd think there would be more of an effort. of course, a lot to cover in 42 minutes.It may have checked all the boxes, but nothing was resolved and all of the naughty stuff was quickly swept under the carpet.
We pretty much nothing of the alien race and apparently made no effort to communicate with them.
Una can't be infected and she was the one dealing out the super-human punishment.Well that beat-down was tied to being infected.
Then nothing was resolved in this episode. Episodes are hard and it obviously represents a paradigm shift for the writers and the dozens of producers.And according to the interview with Rebecca Romjin on Ready Room, the Una issues are far from resolved and will be playing a role throughout the season.
If the episodes aren't resolved, we're left juggling a bunch of small arcs.And look - we can either have long arc seasons, or episiodic Star Trek. I will take the latter, after suffering through some lousy "arcs" these past several years.
Yeah. You might even call it a "hybrid" approach.If the episodes aren't resolved, we're left juggling a bunch of small arcs.
Well, the Una is an illyrian is obviously a SNW writer creation. Nor have we seen superhuman capabilities from her until now.Yeah. You might even call it a "hybrid" approach.
And... I enjoyed this episode and found it easy to follow, except for the out-of-the-blue Number One identifying herself as Illyrian. I don't remember the ST pilot showing Numer One as having any superhuman capabilities.
I have no problem with a loose arc, but where we get contained stories and now a 10 episode run to understand something.I'm more a fan of episodic stories that have a loose arc. The way DS9 did it.
Oh dear; I'm going to have to look those up. And you forgot my usual example: City on the Edge of Forever! One of the best Star Trek episodes ever IMNSHO.Think Inner Light. 45 minutes of pure science fiction greatness. Or Darmok - his eyes open. Or Measure of a Man, or Who Watches the Watchers. OR Devil's Due, or Yesterday's Enterprise.... and on and on.
But she was also dealing with a security officer who was fighting hard. Think you are looking more into this than there was.Una can't be infected and she was the one dealing out the super-human punishment.

Yep, like Riker’s Transport twin, which they had to resolve on DS9.i bet if you went back to a lot of TNG episodes there are plenty of unresolved plot lines.
