I think maybe they must have had a different writer or something for it, because Captain Archer was WAY out of character in dealing with the consequences of Trip's actions. I was a bit stunned at how... I dunno... un-Archerly his reaction to Trip's actions were in dealing with the cogenitor. Also, I was very annoyed with how they ended it. What the fuck.
The concept of a third gender neither male nor female is fascinating! Why wouldn't you want to explore that? Trip acted exactly as Archer would have if their positions had been reversed, and I was really let down when they decided to end a very interesting and carefully developed plot with, "Derp, an hero'd." (...which means it committed suicide for those of you who don't go to 4chan. Don't go there, by the way.) I thought it would have been incredibly interesting if it was allowed to stay on the ship and became a regular character.
And then I remembered it's Star Trek. Ha ha, oh yeah, it's ridiculous and they wouldn't know what to do with a thoroughly flushed out story anyways. Back to the formulaic Captain-Archer-gets-into-trouble-and-T'pol-gets-him-out, with no continuity other than a flimsy over-arching plot line concerning future-aliens.
...I really like T'pol. She's a bad ass with a brain disease. Fuck yeah. (And super nice tits. Like, dayum. Those are some sumptuous boobies.)
So I've been watching Star Trek: Enterprise, because I heard it was good. And... it is good, considering it's Star Trek and I have to suspend a lot of disbelief and just turn my brain off and not think about how incredibly ridiculous it all is, but I had a real problem with the episode called: "Cogenitor".
