Episode by Episode - Star Trek: Enterprise


Season 2

Episode 35 Singularity


Everyone in the Enterprise crew accept T’Pol goes crazy after being exposed to some weird space radiation.  It’s a nice budget minded episode that keeps all the action on the ship.  It’s also a been there done that Star Trek story.  It’s similar to the Star Trek original series episode The Naked Time where everyone loses their ambitions through a virus spread by touch or sweat or something.  Then Star Trek The Next Generation brought the virus back in The Naked Now. 


What’s even more tiring about the story is how many times did a popular Star Trek alien avoid the affects or radiation, a virus, anomaly, alien mind-wipe?  It’s a tired Star Trek trope that the ship is saved by the one alien or android who is immune to the condition that humans are susceptible to.
