The Trekzone Review

Originally I offered a very basic review on this episode, explaining that this was good character development for T’Pol and the Vulcans. But I now think that this episode served to establish what was going to make our benevolent overloards, the all knowing – while holding us back – Vulcans… they are still in conflict with themselves.

It seems right too, in March of 2018, to discuss any sort of ‘retconning’ that Enterprise attempts given the upheaval especially considering the modern age allows any fan to posit a theory about Discovery. But in each occassion that I originally panned on my first reviews, I’ve cast a new eye over the episodes (three so far this season) and thought that since we had no frame of reference for this time, there is nothing more going on than further expanding the lore of these characters.

The Vulcan differential will come to a head in season four with the three-parter involving the Kir’shara so for now, we gain an understanding of why these Vulcans are so much more annoying.
