It wasn't fantastically written but at least its heart was in the right place.


You are the reason we can't have nice things :(

Last episode was kind of mediocre.

If it makes you feel any better, I was pretty baffled & irritated at how lightly-defended Earth was -- I felt even after the loss of Starbase 1 it should have been tough for Klingon raiders to get past the Mars Defense Perimeter.

I feel like I'm engaging in this completely tangentially to you though. I basically like episodes that remind me of TNG and dislike episodes that don't. TNG often had wonky scriptwriting so that part doesn't bother me so much. ;)

Yeah I would have felt better about it had they shown a load of defences near earth and the Klingons just approaching them rather than what appeared to be hundreds of satellites or something near earth,

I'm not sure Earth had had any major wars up to that point so it's possible that they didn't expect the need for massed defences.

I'm struggling to remember if the Xindi war was retconned or not as they didn't face much resistance at Earth either.
