Last week I found out what happens when you bang your head on the wall to keep from dying of boredom. It sort of explodes a little. Mmm, Darvon drip laced with Boony Doon Muscat Vin de Glaciere. Feeling groo-hoo-hoovy.
This episode was much better than last week's episode but it was...easy. The rescue mission? The Convenient Comet of Contrivance? EZ-Chee-Z, poop and peaz-y. However, I am giving it an "A." Why I am I giving it an "A"? Simply because of Trinneer's performance. And because Trinneer made it cathartic in a way the finale (FUCK YOU BERMAGA!) isn't. If Trinneer gets a new show next year, I'm watching it. Religiously. It's been a long road getting from "Shut up, Trip" to here. It's been a weird road, but you know? I'm finally here. And I can see my snark start to die at last. It will writhe and cry. And I'm not able to choke back the tears, no my eyes aren't staying dry. 'Cuz I'm a sap. Sap at heart. I'm going where the tissues take me. I've got snot. In my nose. And Flonase won't unstuff me.
The episode opens with Mr. Evil RoboCreep (sorry, that's Dr. Evil RoboCreep, because he didn't spend six years at evil medical school to be called "mister," thank you very much) seamlessly continuing on with his dastardly demands, manifesto, rant, letter to the editor, et cetera. Enterprise can't stop the transmission and they can't call Starfleet because everything (including Quantum's ass) is jammed, so they just have to watch as Dr. Evil RoboCreep uploads an image of Baby Tri'Pol and drones that this is the enemy they should all fear. I'm sorry, but putting a baby up there is like putting a puppy on screen and telling everyone to fear it. You can't, because it's helpless and squirmy and pink. And it often wets itself. Then there's the cute factor, so honestly? I think Dr. Evil RoboCreep is undermining his own cause here, but he's just such a whack job that he doesn't see it.
I guess I shoulda known
By the way u sang your song crapwise
That it wouldn't last
See you're the kinda show
That believes in makin' out once
Shove 'em and disgust 'em fast
I guess I must be dumb
'cuz u had a pocket full of stories
TOS and some of them used
But it was Friday night
I guess that makes it all right
And u say what have I got 2 lose?
And honey I say
Little grey space-ship
Baby you're much 2 warped
Little grey space-ship
U need a core that's gonna last
