[ENT] Bounty

[ENT] Season 2, Episode 25 (Netflix: S2 E25): Bounty

bounty

Rating: 2

This is an episode that I wish would have the B plot edited out of it. I like the A plot. I like meeting a tellarite and the continuation of the klingon arc in Enterprise. It would be worth a 3 if the B plot wasn’t so bad.

    Wow, I guess the B plot really got under your skin! You only gave it a brief mention. I agree, I think the episode would have been far better if they would have focused on the Tellarite bounty hunter and Archer. For being founding members of The Federation the Andorians and Tellarites don’t get much airtime at all outside of Enterprise.

      Yeah one of my favorite parts of Enterprise is the Andorians and Tellarites
