[ENT] Daedalus

[ENT] Season 4, Episode 10: DaedalusdaedalusRating: 2 
This episode has an appropriate theme, and was fairly well carried out, but is moves pretty slow and unfolds pretty much the way you think it would. The story just felt a little stretched, and devoted to characters we’ve never met before.

    yonagonaf is a supporter of the term “transporter” and not “teleporter”.

    The term “teleporter” brings to mind the character portrayed by Ed Begley Jr. in the “Star Trek: Voyager” episodes “Future’s End Part 1” and “Future’s End Part 2”.

    Although Malachi Ward and Sam Ward might be of an age that the television series “St. Elsewhere” was in production on television.
