Interstellar News: Two posts in a row? What craziness is this?
TL;DR: Starfleet and the Vulcans discuss “The Andorian Incident” and relay to Archer that P’Jem has been destroyed. T’Pol is going to be reassigned so she and Archer go on one last mission to Coridan, only they’re kidnapped on the way there. The Andorians help Tucker and Reed save Archer and T’Pol… but T’Pol winds up saving the life of another Vulcan named Sopek. Archer asks Sopek to intervene so T’Pol can stay, given that she’s also hurt, and he agrees.
Archer: You made quite an impression on Sopek. I’ve got a feeling he’s going to talk to the High Command about that transfer order. I’d say the odds are pretty good you’re going to be with us for a while longer.
T’Pol: You should have consulted me first.
Archer: It’s probably not too late if you want to catch up to him.
T’Pol: That won’t be possible. Leaving Sickbay would violate my doctor’s orders.On one hand I love how literal T’Pol is, on the other hand Archer should have consulted her first.
“I’m getting real sick of being cut off.”: I both love and hate this episode. I love that the Andorians are back. I love that the crew of the Enterprise are facing consequences for their actions. Phlox continues to be an amazing doctor and T’Pol is finally getting her footing as a Vulcan. It was fantastic to see the Andorians working together with Reed and Tucker, as all four of them were trying to stick it to the Vulcans in their own way. T’Pol and Archer work together and then there’s a ton of weird sexual tension that doesn’t need to be there. Where this episode completely makes me unhappy is ARCHER CARRYING T’POL LIKE SHE’S A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS. Come on! Everything was going great and then they had to treat her like a girl, not even a woman. Ugh! No treat-os for Porthos (which means no made up rating for you all)!
