Default An ENT question

Just on a random whim, I would like to know from those who watched Enterprise what their favourite episode was. It's probably a rather wasted excercise as I've never seen beyond the end of S2 and I imagine that most people will pick episodes from after that cut-off. But still, I'm asking anyway.

From what I did see, "Vox Sola" is the one that really stands out. It was pure old school Star Trek, but sadly it was also pretty much all on its lonesome in those first two seasons in terms of the style of story. If there had been a few more like that I might think more of ENT that I do now; clearly, however, that wasn't that kind of show that the producers or the network wanted. More's the pity.

Here's another ENT question for those who actually managed to watch the whole run: Did they ever return to the plot thread of that autonomous space station voiced by Roxanne Dawson that was rebuilding itself?

Shuttle Pod One is the first episode that stands out in my mind as being one I really likd to watch. Mostly cause I think the antics between Tripp and Malcom were hilarious. But i'm sure if I looked back through the seasons i'd find an ep that I liked even better. But it's been such a long time since I've watched any of those episodes. They're shown as a marathon on monday nights on Sci Fi, but it's at such a crappy time for me cause HEROES is on in the middle of that. And I most definatly can not miss Heroes.

No, they didn't.

As with any series you liked, it's hard to pick out just one. I tend to like some of the ones that other people didn't, like 'A Night in Sickbay' and 'The Seventh'. After Season 2, I'd have to say one favorite is the S3 opener, 'The Xindi', for the general atmosphere of the mining facility and especially for Stephen McHattie's marvelously bizarre performance as the mine foreman. Also, pretty much anything with Shran, including 'Proving Ground', with "Archerite" and "Slowly. The Andorian Mining Consortium runs from no one!"

I also enjoyed Shuttlepod One, and not just because (I think) it was the first Enterprise episode (after the pilot) that was given the Delta Blues treatment by Jim Wright. Poor Jim. He still has about ten Voyager episodes to go...

The Vulcan trilogy in Season Four was my favorite. It just... clicked for me.
