Star Trek: Enterprise – Season 2

Although some of Enterprise’s best episodes appear during its second season, it is the show’s weakest season as-a-whole. Still, the season out-delivers the relatively weak second seasons of Voyager, Deep Space Nine, and The Next Generation.

Despite an exciting Season One finale, its conclusion in “Shockwave, Part II” was average at best. “Carbon Creek,” while unique and charming, lacks enthusiasm. The progressing three episodes continue this disheartenment.

It isn’t until “The Seventh” before we see promise, which is quickly quashed by the following sequence of episodes.

Despite its commonly low regard, I rather delight at “Precious Cargo’s” comedy and feel that it stands out among a chain of unimpressive episodes.

Undeniably, Season 2’s momentum picks up with “Stigma,” with that moment carrying into “Cease Fire” and “Future Tense.” While not quite on-par with the aforementioned trio, “Canamar” is another quality episode.

After another succession of average episodes, Season Two ends on a high-note with “Regeneration,” “First Flight,” and “The Expanse.”
