  • The beginning of the Vulcan trilogy starts with a big bang.

    In the 4th season, they came up with a novel approach of having shows in three episode arcs. This is the beginning of a trilogy of Vulcan related episodes. There is some good here and some bad. On the good side, there is more Vulcan conspiracy and deception. On the bad side, the actors playing Vulcans exhibit too much emotion. Normally, actors are encouraged to show how they feel. In this case, Robert Foxworth even turns around in anger toward the Ambassador. It would have been better to have written in better dialogue than to have shown what would undoubtedly be a Vulcan faux pas. The cliffhanger ending is exciting. Archer's new found power is foreboding.
