Re: Enterprise season four finale (spoiler, for no

No, I'm not yanking your chain, they DID say that, very early in the ep. I had the same thought as you, since dogs are of Earth, and they are from another planet. But, I swear it is true!

Re: Enterprise season four finale (spoiler, for no

Well, uh... from the episode bits that I saw, it looked like the writing had improved.

They may have some tricky tie-ins to do before anything remotely resembling uh... consistency... can..

awww well, as long as they didn't eat Porthos, I'm fine.

Roast dog with rat tail sauce, yum yum!

Kidding, of course, but the Aztecs raised dogs for food, and often depicted chubby chihuahuas with ears of corn in their mouths, usually as pottery vessels. Only the wealthy can afford to eat chihuahuas any more.

Well, yea, some cultures did and do eat dogs but... Enterprise is actually improving. Let's leave the dog-eating to the ancients.

By the way, nice new avatar, VL. Kosh in the angel mode there.

Thanks hyp.

And I agree: Enterprise is improving. I found myself actually quite excited while watching this past week's episode.

Re: Enterprise season four finale (spoiler, for no

Yeah, Jeffrey Combs is the man. As I've said many times before, I am a hopeless sucker for grandiose theatrical scenery chewing acting and Combs is one of the best.

IIRC, his first appearance on Trek was as a one-off alien character on DS9. His first recurring role was that of the Ferengi (Brunt, or something like that) who constantly harassed Quark. But of course his greatest recurring role was that of Way-Un, the Vorta representative of the Dominion. Between that character and Dukat (the Cardassian), they made the Dominion the coolest bad guys on TV ever.

And of course he was in an episode of B5, as the telepath that was with the even-more-scenery-chewy Colonel who tried to usurp Sinclair in eyes. Man, between Sinclair's stiff indignant self-righteosness, Ivanova's awkwardness, the Colonel's over-doing everything, and Combs' pansy-ass telepathic mumbo-jumbo ("filthy, filthy!"), that is one of the funniest scenese.

Anyhoo, I dug this ep.

Yea Combs was all over DS9. He probably played 25% of the aliens on the show. He must be nailing someone at Paramount too, to keep getting roles in the Trek universe. I really was not at all surprised when I saw him for the first time as the Andorian...

I see him as Trek's Wayne Alexander.

Wasn't he also one of the original 3 Ferengi when they were introdced on TNG?

No, it appears his first Trek appearance was indeed DS9.
