  • The augment get theres

    5.5
    The episode is conflicted

    the augments kill each other

    there creator turns on them

    the klingons turn on every one

    and archer ,as always, has one hell

    of a fight on his hands.



    soong finally realises the error of his ways

    the augments are finally destroyed and peace is restored



    the action is good as is the plot

    the only objection is the moral stance througth out the trilogy



    there seems to be a predjudical theme througth out the eps

    and other trek series

    that simply improving humans will doom them to

    a life of megalomania and genocide.



    this is never discussed in a balanced manner

    the augments are esentailly human

    some humans are good ,some bad ,some indifferent

    to portray them all in an unflatering light is

    my diffinition of racism



    maybe if earth wasnt so reactionary

    or scared they would have surrendered

    if the augments had seen the light before they were all

    neatly wiped out what would earth have done with them?

    locked them up as they still do in ds9 200 years later.

    (maybe not smike but then he didnt have super powers)



    I sided with the augments from the get go

    and the cod moralising of this hypocritical human society

    only reinforced this

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Mission Date: May 27, 2154

    • Trivia: Finally conceding that perfecting humanity through genetic engineering is impossible, Soong decides to pursue cybernetics, and says that the work will likely take multiple generations. This is a tie-in to Soong's 24th Century descendant, Dr. Noonien Soong, who eventually created, among others, Data.

    • Trivia: When mentioned by Malik, Soong dismisses the Botany Bay - the ship carrying Khan Noonien Singh and his fellow augments - as a myth. In fact, the ship would later be discovered, and its passengers revived, by the Enterprise (NCC-1701) crew in The Original Series episode "Space Seed".

    • Nitpick: Although it is scientifically plausible for Archer to survive the vacuum of space momentarily, some of his capilaries should have burst.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Soong: (to T'Pol) Sorry about that business with the Orions. Hope you weren't permanently injured.
      Trip: Why don't you stay focused on what you're doing?
      Soong: Someone's a little protective of Commander T'Pol.
      Trip: I just don't like you very much.

    • Soong: The port inducer assembly's been damaged. Go to engineering and repair it.
      Malik: I'm not an engineer.
      Soong: You're a bright boy, Malik. I'm sure you'll figure it out.

    • Trip: (to T'Pol) Come on. It's not like we would have made an ideal couple. A Vulcan and a Human? Romeo and Juliet probably stood a better chance.

    • Soong: How long can we sustain Warp 5?
      Trip: As long as the Captain wants it. Or until we blow up, whichever comes first.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Trip: Romeo and Juliet probably stood a better chance.

      Romeo and Juliet were lovers in the Shakespearean tragedy of the same title. They were forbidden to be together by their feuding families, and eventually both comitted suicide.
