I kind of like the new Enterprise series.  We’ll see how it progresses.  Oddly enough, I’m wondering how big the Captain’s dog is going to get.  That Vulcan babe sure is improbably constructed, isn’t she?

I’m kind of disappointed, though, at how often the Captain or somebody else has to say “…and that’s an order.”  You would think that the “cream of the crop” crew assigned to Earth’s flashiest new spaceship would understand that everything the Captain says is an order.  But then, that’s always bothered me, even when I was in the military.  Whenever a superior said “…and that’s an order,” I knew that he was somehow insecure in his ability to command.
