[ENT] Season 2, Episode 12 (Netflix: S2 E12): The Catwalk
Most people will find this episode boring, but there are a number of solid concepts to almost make this episode a 3. I liked how the stakes for the climax were introduced early and subtly (the issue of the warp core heating the catwalk is a minor hurdle in the beginning, but becomes a big deal). I liked how the episode gives you a better sense of the ship, and the smallness of the crew. I also kind of like that it’s dealing with a natural phenomenon, although I realize that won’t interest most people.

If this storm was chasing me, I would either fly up or down rather than follow it’s same course
I think Trip decorated the catwalk bridge with little wire-light-things. Great job Trip!
