The Trekzone Review

Classic Trek is full of episodes where Kirk meets the alien female, Kirk seduces the alien female and everything is all hunky dorey in the next installment.

It seems the Enterprise writers decided to take that storyline one step further in Unexpected. The only thing great about this ep for me was the explaination in sickbay from Doctor Phlox how Trip has become pregnant… and T’Pol’s reaction of “you were only there for three days” was perfectly played by Jolene and Scott. The Klingon B-plot was a nice add in, helping to plant the seeds for episodes to come in the second season.

This was a nice character episode for Trip who we learn values his career in Starfleet and really wants to get out there and explore… having him be the Kirk of this series was a nice twist, and a tradition that started with Riker on The Next Generation.
