Kirk and Company travel back to the summer of love. The episode starts with Air Force jets and military images and I remember seeing it the first time as a kid and thinking, is this Star Trek? The Episode is written by the Great DC Fontana after associate producer Robert Justman devised the original idea for the story. A lot of time travel issues are brought up by Spock. Overall pretty enjoyable I would give it an 8 out of 10. There are several winks and nudges with some humor when the guard is beamed on board and the cool Kirk has this conversation with the Colonel:

A transporter accident merges Tuvok and Neelix into a new person. Eww, yuck this kind of makes me feel unclean, like I need to go take a shower or something. Not quite as confusing as a birthday card my wife just got that plays happy birthday with cats meowing, arggg (with a dog barking the the background, what the wha..). I really like both characters but when you combine them, you have kind of a confusing mess. You see the personality of Neelix coming through more than Tuvok. When they beam up a flower it causes them to meld together in the form of a bizzare tactical officer/cook. Kes is a mess and he/they don’t know how to interact with her. She is ready to be friends, but it will take time (doesn’t she only have 7 years until she is dead)? In 46 minutes they are sure to work it out! Tuvix plea at the end is good as is the emergency medical holograms interactions. I would give it a 6 out of 10, a little slow in the middle.

My first review of an episode. Season 1 of Enterprise the 7th episode. The Enterprise discovers a large comet, possibly the largest ever discovered by Human or Vulcan. They decide to fly down and have a look. Meanwhile the Vulcans show up and send a secret message to T’Pol. Captain Archer invites their Captain over for dinner but he has absolutely nothing in common and barely wants to be there. He has the demeanor of Joe Friday (Just the facts Archer!) mixed with a border guard with a smidgen of librarian mixed in for good measure. There are a couple of mildly amusing points such as what happens when, they go to the bathroom (thanks we have been wondering for about 700 episodes)! A little bit of action on the snowy surface of the comet, and a cool Vulcan ship, I would rate it about average. 5 out of 10.

The voyages begin with the first step. On a cloud of Sound I drift in the night, hit it Zefram Cochrane!
What to call a new blog about Star Trek. My daughter had several not so nice suggestions about being a loser and being obsessed with Star Trek. What does she know, she has NEVER seen an episode. My wife was thinking about Gene Roddenberry’s pitch to the network as the “Wagontrain to the Stars” sounds a little funny, doesn’t roll of the tongue too well. I think of Lost in Space the black and white episodes. I started searching for ideas and saw, Memory Alpha
for Star Trek canon and now there is a Memory Beta for licensed Trek info. I would like to view all of the 727 episodes of the six series and give my comments about each one.
The core of the Star Trek franchise is six television series: The Original Series, The Animated Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. In total 727 Star Trek episodes have been produced across the 30 seasons of the TV series.
