Enterprise: Strange New World (Ep 1.04)

Again, a pretty typical Trek plot. It’s the series’ first away mission and of course something goes wrong. Without giving away the plot, the episode turns out to take a look at xenophobia (please explain?). Tripp, the ship’s resident redneck, goes off at T’Pol because she’s Vulcan (that’s in a nutshell). Some nice character development – Archer is not as belligerent as Kirk was, but he’s still a pretty direct guy who’s not afraid to lie down with his ear on the floor in front of his senior officers because his floor is squeaking. He addresses T’Pol, “but we didn’t come here to tip-toe around” and without skipping a beat commands, “get the pod ready.” I like the guy already.
