How to watch Twins vs. Athletics on TV or live streaming – Thursday, June 13 Man in Bay Ridge hit and killed by DOT truck

Star Trek: Discovery is over. But one of his parting gifts is a reference to the previous series –Star Trek: Enterprise. About the.

Towards the end of the DISCO In the series finale, “Life, Itself,” Captain Michael Burnham asks Kovich to reveal a secret: his real name. “Agent Daniels” is his answer. And at that moment, cell phone screens around the world light up, allowing countless people to ask the obvious question: Who the hell is Agent Daniels?

The short answer is: Agent Daniels is a time traveler who first appears in Star Trek: EnterpriseThe next logical question is: Should I Pursue? And the answer is YES. Of course you should! You should watch all the Star Trek shows and movies.

Actually, Star Trek: Enterprise And Star Trek: Discovery have a few things in common. They’re both prequel series. They also both face a number of similar criticisms. They’re too dark! Orders from the bosses prevent the writers from doing their best work! They don’t find their rhythm until they’re canceled!

However, just because they face similar challenges does not mean that the form of the resulting deficiencies is the same. In fact, DISCO And ENT are opposites. So if you recommend Pursue For current Trekkies, qualifications are necessary. Should you watch the film? Absolutely. However, there are a few things to keep in mind.

But first let’s talk about why Pursue it is worth diving into the article DISCO.

The temporal Cold War

The obvious reason to watch Pursue after discovery is to find out more about Agent Daniels. And to prepare you: He is not in ENT much. The concept he introduces, the Temporal Cold War, however, has its fingerprints everywhere in the entirety of Pursue. Already in the pilot episode “Broken Bow” we see the Suliban conspiracy and its mysterious future benefactor. Why would someone try to change time? Yes, why.

The Temporal Cold War is exactly what it sounds like. There are factions that can travel through time. There are agreements about when time travel is allowed and when it is not. And of course, various factions are constantly breaking the rules with disastrous results.

Back then, time travel was a source of frustration for Trek fans, especially because the previous series Star Trek: The Next Generation made the time jump again (and again and again and AGAIN) Fans were a little tired of the time travel shenanigans.

Fortunately, time travel is not the case in every episode. discovery. It plays a big role in the transition from season two to season three, but is otherwise kept to a minimum.

Therefore, there is less time travel burnout among Trek fans. Plus, it’s cool to see how the changed past of ENT connects with the distant future of DISCO.

Star Trek: Enterprise After dark

Star Trek executive producer Alex Kurtzman has a theory as to why Star Trek: Discovery suffered in the first season – it was too dark. And that is absolutely one of the biggest criticisms of Pursuealso. Kurtzman says, however, DISCO“It was always intended as a journey from darkness into light,” ENT encompasses both its darkness and its light over the course of four seasons.

In the early 2000s, viewers had to deal with a lot of specific content: 9/11 wanking. Those who were still alive remember it well. Every show revolved around the “war on terror and its complexity.” Pursue is a perfect example of this. The entire third season is basically just about 9/11 in space. Although this was controversial at the time, two decades later it’s fascinating to look back and see how Star Trek deals with complex political moments.

I say it: Pursue Season 3 is good. I like it DISCO The focus is on the story arc of the season. We meet the Xindi, a group of aliens who work together to fight the Federation. And our villains are really complex. Meanwhile, the NX-01 gets military on board and there is a sense of unease. Are they doing the right thing? It’s really compelling television and if you like the darker side of DISCOThe Xindi Bow is probably the most important reason why you should watch ENT.

Season 4 is also very good

Most people believe Star Trek: DiscoveryThe fifth and final season is the best. In a certain synchronicity, this applies to PursueThe fourth and final season. The fourth season of Enterprise, directed by the late, great Manny Coto, is mostly a series of multi-part stories. We get Nazis! We get Orions! The Vulcan homeworld is in turmoil. The humans are pitted against aliens. And as in every season of Pursuewe get the best version of the Andorians in the history of Star Trek.

You’ve no doubt heard that the series finale is bad. And it is. But the season itself feels like both a Relapse to what the original was Star Trek great and at the same time uses everything that makes series television worthwhile. Dark? In places. But when discovery is a show that focuses on the light of the return of the Federation, then PursueThe last season is initially about the founding of this federation.

Apart from this, Star Trek: Enterprise has its fair share of justified criticism. And if DISCO is your first foray into the world of Star Trek, there are some blemishes that you are best aware of before delving into the past of Trek in general and with Pursue special. It’s better to know that something like this is coming than to be caught off guard by it.

Star Trek: Enterprise and “diversity”

Star Trek: Discovery is the first show in the franchise with a gay couple on board. It is the first time that a black female captain is the main character. The first transsexual and non-binary characters are included DISCO. And while there is certainly much to debate regarding the quality of the storytelling of these characters, there is undeniably an effort at DISCO to ensure that every viewer feels represented and seen.

While all Star Trek series try to keep their bridge crews diverse in one way or another, it is safe to say that Pursue does this the least. To recap: There’s Hoshi Sato and Travis Mayweather. That’s it. A Korean actor playing a Japanese character and a black actor playing a character who basically has no character. That’s essentially your diversity. After five seasons of DISCO, it’s understandable if this kind of storytelling feels like a slap in the face.

Is Star Trek: Enterprise a bad show because the white characters basically get all the attention? No. But that’s the kind of thing you should know before you start watching it. Every Star Trek show has its flaws. Heck, the original series seems to have a “women, am I right” scene in almost every episode. That doesn’t mean you can skip the show. But it’s better to know in advance – especially if your only experience is with Trek DISCO.

And while we are on the subject of women and Pursue

Make way, Seven of Nine, it’s time for T’Pol,… Oh no, not again.

The original Seven of Nine costume that Jeri Ryan has to wear is so tight that it causes her to faint. And there is a lot of uproar among the cast, crew and fans about the sexualization of Seven. Surely things could improve, right?

No. Indeed, the part of Pursue what is hardest to swallow is the hyper HYPER Sexualization of Jolene Blalock’s character, Sub Commander T’Pol. Yes, the Vulcan science officer on the NX-01 is subjected to the most uncomfortable nonsense in Star Trek history. Captain Archer’s face ends up on her chest for no reason. Basically everyone on the ship fantasizes about her. Two crew members, believing she’s dead, even drunkenly talk about her “butt.”

Jolene Blalock, like Jeri Ryan before her, endures these indignities week after week while still delivering many of the show’s best performances. T’Pol expands our understanding of Vulcans. When we see her entire time on the Enterprise, we can really understand why a full-blooded Vulcan would find humanity fascinating. Blalock is a great actress, and T’Pol is an exciting character when the show allows her to be anything other than sweaty and in various states of undress.

But their costumes are all pajamas with lines specifically designed to show off their bodies. It is worth noting that every character, including the men, is sexualized PursueHowever, T’Pol gets it most and after four seasons of discovery Since you’re horny and enjoy equal opportunities, it’s best to know this beforehand.

Apart from this …

Consensus: There is no

If you want to look up any episode of any series from the franchise of Star Trek: The Original Series through Star Trek: The Next Generationthere is a clear distinction between which episodes are good and which ones you can skip. One of the most interesting things about Pursue is that there is no universal consensus. Of course there are exceptions. “Dear Doctor” and “These Are The Voyages” are generally not liked. And most people like the Borg story and the insight into T’Pol’s family past.

However, I have noticed over the years that there are endless debates about whether most episodes work or not. While the past of Star Trek has been largely talked about, Pursue remains in many ways the undiscovered country.

I would argue that Pursueis, more than any other Star Trek series of the past, the right series to look forward to discovery. Their similarities are as numerous as their differences. They’re both about ships trying to establish relationships with other worlds. And they both take strange risks that will make you both cheer and scratch your head.

Just one thing: Enterprise streams on Paramount Plus, but only with 2.0 audio. The Blu-rays are 5.1 DTS Master Audio. It makes a difference. That’s all I’m saying.
