only five episodes left! are you excite? get excite!

and we have reached the mirror universe two parter

i kind of hate that this exists only because one idea i really liked was that enterprise WAS set in the mirror universe and that was why they did evil shit all the time

but no... :blobsad:

we just can't have nice things

they do the scene from first contact where the vulcans land except cochrane shoots the vulcan and the humans loot their ship

we get an alternate version of the opening which is a bunch of bunch of stock footage followed by some truly awful cgi but it's also infinitely better than the normal version because it doesn't feature a fucking christian rock song

so because agony booths are a thing in the mirror universe and this is a prequel series we have to take the fanfic approach of explaining the origin of every goddamn thing

maybe we can explain the origins of how they started wearing uniforms next? that's a thing that needs explaining, right?

omg bakula is going to spend this whole two parter in Grr Mode, isn't he? he spent all of season three scowling and growling at people and he's also terrible at it
i know there's only five eps left but can we recast archer with a tolerable actor please?

mirror universe hoshi is the "captain's woman" i guess and the actress is very clearly not into doing this scene

Show thread

it's actually almost comical how little chemistry there is
the actress could not even pretend to care a little bit

archer stages a coup and takes over the ship and travis is there but - you're not gonna believe this - he doesn't have any lines 🤷

bakula is just awful. look i know the producers were never going to let the women or the black guy do anything on this show but could we at least have tucker launch the coup instead of archer? i mean i hate tucker as a character but the actor doesn't make me embarrassed for him at least

@Taweret wait what. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS THAT OUTFIT. you can't tell me that is an ACTUAL STARFLEET UNIFORM. aqowiejrt;qoignblqrtigq;o5ijtq;io54tgjq;o45jt /frothing

re: personal log supplemental, i continue to complain about enterprise 

@Taweret it literally looks like her pants are *falling down*. that's... what the FUCK.

re: personal log supplemental, i continue to complain about enterprise 

@Taweret no wait I see there's another feeeemale character in the background with the same lack-of-uniform. WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK IS THAT BULLSHIT. fucking you can't even excuse that as "oh it's a dystopain totalitarian alternate universe," totalitarian states are notorious for trying to *control and impede* sexual display--if they allowed women to serve at all (unlikely) they'd be much more likely to be wearing, like, fucking business suit levels of cover. that's just gross. ;AEIJOIQARGN;REAG;QIRGH;IERJG;QIERJFG;AIEJR;FGOIAJER;FGOIJAERG

@troodon @Taweret btw if I remember correctly the Terran Empire has a kind of Darwinist doctrine where individuals seize as much power as they can. The main way to get promoted is to assassinate your superior, that sort of thing. And the sexy ladies were rationalized as "they use Feminine Wiles to get ahead."
