Episode by Episode - Star Trek: Enterprise

Season 2

Episode 38 The Catwalk


This is a solid episode with some nice tension.  The entire ship must seek refuge in the two nacelles while some fancy shmancy sci-fi mumbo jumbo anomaly happens.  The prep to move the entire crew before the storm hits is nice drama.  But of course like all Star Trek shows, when the entire ship is emptied out an alien species, team of criminals, or random riffraff end up trying to cause shenanigans on the ship.  


The crew has to fight off the bad guys while making sure they don’t turn the engines on and kill everyone hiding in the nacelles.  Overall the episode, while a bit copycatted, works.  The way the story plays out is original enough and has enough excitement to sustain itself for its runtime.
