Enterprise review: "Fallen Hero".
(Episode 23)

Reviewed by Richard Whettestone.
Enterprise

THE PREMISE: A Vulcan Ambassador comes onboard, believed to be a fallen hero. Then it turns out she's James Bond on a super secret spy mission, while a fleet of bad guys hunt Enterprise down to kill her before she testifies in a court of law many months later.

"Fallen Hero"
Teleplay by Alan Cross.
Story by Rick Berman & Brannon Braga and Chris Black
(the usual suspects)


Tucker What?! I acted my ass off in "Fusion". What do you mean Beavis and Butthead didn't even watch it?

T'Pol casually states that Vulcans mate every seven years, and Tucker sits there dumb faced as if he didn't know.

Well, Tucker knew in "Fusion" when that fat Vulcan told him.


T'Pol
Then we mate once every seven years, plus we have no moons, even though sometimes we have one or two. Plus we have a second eyelid. And let me tell you about our...

Spock was so embarrassed about Pon Farr, he hijacked the Enterprise. Vorik was so embarrassed about Pon Farr, he left the ship without permission in an attempt to rape B'Elanna Torres. Tuvok was so embarrassed about Pon Farr, he refused to talk to anybody about it even when Vorik was going through it.

Yet here we have T'Pol not only reveal Vulcans mate every seven years, she has a blatantly open and frank discussion about it in front of her Captain and Commander. And at dinner no less.


T'Pol And I also have a dick.

T'Pol says "Vulcans mate every seven years", not "Vulcan Males mate every seven years." This is a clear indication that Berman and Braga are soon about to rewrite established Star Trek history yet again by trying to claim Vulcan females go through the Pon Farr too, in an attempt to do some dumbed-down sexed-up episode of Enterprise where T'Pol experiences the first female Pon Farr. Braga has already stated jokes about this at conventions. This is his first attempt at opening that door to make that happen.

And to work ahead for you, if B&B try to claim we never heard of female Pon Farr because the Vulcans don't like to talk about it, I'll remind you that T'Pol just had a conversation about Pon Farr with the Captain and Commander at dinner so it must not be that much of a secret.


Tucker Math is different in the future.

Admiral Forrest tells Archer they have to pick up the Vulcan Ambassador because the nearest Vulcan ship is at least a week away, then says they are to rendevous with the Vulcan ship in 3 days.

Wait, what?


Daniels By the way, you better lock my room in case a fallen Vulcan hero comes onboard. I suggest you use Hoshi's.

How the hell did Enterprise lose all its rooms suddenly? Like they've never had any guests before. Yet here they have ONE single guest, and Hoshi has to move out. Even with Daniels' room now sealed and his bunkmate placed somewhere else, the ship should still have a few rooms left over.


Fallen Hero Help! I'm a Fallen Hero, and I can't get up.

She wasn't a fallen hero. It was just a handful of scenes into the episode that they learn she was really on a spy mission. She told this to T'Pol and she told this to Archer. There was no moment of disgrace between her and T'Pol. There was no shame in her actions. She was James Bond on a super secret spy mission.

Come on, writers. Come up with a title that actually fits, will you?


Hoshi I did have windows in my room, but I removed them.

In "Fight or Flight", Hoshi wanted to trade rooms because the stars were shooting by backwards. She moved to another room where the stars shoot by forward now. But yet now suddenly her room is missing those windows.

I'm reminded of the Voyager episode where Harry Kim said he always sleeps with a blindfold on and has done so all his life, yet we never saw him sleeping with one ever again after that episode. It's a real shame these writers don't actually watch the episodes of the show they're writing.


Dad always said I was a loser.

Eight minutes until Enterprise meets up with the Vulcan ship. But once dropped out of warp, it was then 10 minutes away. You don't need to be a scientist or have a bunch of technobabble thrown at you to know this.

Two objects moving at eachother will meet within a certain amount of time. But if you stop one of them, it will take longer to have them meet. This was common sense. Yet the writers had to write Archer as an idiot by showing he didn't know or understand this? He was actually shocked at the news that it would take longer now. He not only didn't expect it, he didn't understand it. T'Pol had to explain it to him. Hell, even Phlox should have known this.

Besides this making Archer look like an idiot (shock! shock!), Archer's dad was one of the people who helped build the Enterprise's warp engine, as well as Archer being a big part in the ship's construction and launch. Why is this man so stupid? How is this man so stupid?

Young Scott Bakula


Dr. Phlox
NOOoooOOOoooOOOoooOOoo!!!!!!

The most powerfully emotional and dramatically intense scene Phlox ever did, and it was all a ploy to fool the aliens?

Even Phlox's drama is thrown away with B&B's endless punching of the reset button. Why didn't Phlox act this intense back in "Dear Doctor" when he and Archer became best buds and committed mass-genocide together?
