Where Few Have Gone Before: “Dear Doctor”

Where Few Have Gone Before: “Dear Doctor”

Watching “Dear Doctor,” the twelfth episode of Enterprise, I realized two things about the series in general. Firstly, that Doctor Phlox is another incarnation of the “jolly alien crew member” archetype as ably demonstrated by the chef on Voyager. And secondly, that the series would be almost infinitely better if the Captain was a different character altogether.

Apparently, something happened to the creators of Enterprise as they approached the midway point of the first season, because for the first time in my eleven weeks of watching the show, two episodes have not only been outright, no-disclaimers-necessary good, but they’ve also suggested that someone in charge may have realized that there are other crew members on the ship that aren’t Archer, Tucker or T’Pol. Clearly, this can’t last.

There are times when you can just tell that you’re not in sync with the rest of the world. For example, those times when you’re watching an episode of Enterprise and thinking “Yes, this is exactly what I want from this show!” and then go online and see that very episode listed as a much-derided episode that contributed to the show’s ultimate failure by scaring off viewers and turning off fans. This, dear reader, was my experience watching “Cold Front.”

In theory, there’s a lot to like about the ninth episode of Enterprise, not least of which being that it finally turns its attention to some of the world-building that this show has been crying out for since it began; not “This alien race is nuts,” but a look at how the creation of the Enterprise – and the creation of Starfleet in general – affects regular folk out there in the universe. Sadly, theory only counts for so much, and when it comes to the execution of the ideas behind it… Well, that’s where things start to fall apart.

One of my favorite traditions of the superhero comics that I grew up on was the “breather” issue; the one that came after some epic storyline or another and showed everyone having something resembling a normal day afterwards, as everyone tries to calm down and go about their daily business. No wonder, then, that I was a sucker for Enterprise‘s take on the same idea, “Breaking The Ice.”

Four weeks in, my Enterprise rematch has started to settle into a recognizable rhythm: Eeach episode, it seems, will have its share of small moments that hint at a much more enjoyable show than the one we ultimately get, which could best be classified as “promising, but filled with problems.” The problem is, the ratio of “promising” to “problems” seems to be getting worse with every new episode, with this week’s “Unexpected” proving to be the most worrisome yet.
