I'm so behind! I'm just watching this episode now!
I got a big kick out of the fantasy about T'Pol (where IS Mr. Cat when it would be so easy to tease him!). "Who's Stinky? You were talking in your sleep" Uh, yeah, hmm . . . lol
Malcolm is still a little proper, but I feel kind of bad for him. He just didn't connect with anybody in his family, that form letter to all those girls, and he seems to feel more attached to the rest of the crew than any of the others are yet (except the ones who knew each other before this assignment).
I appreciate that Trip is supposed to be American, but in this episode he borders on trailer trash. Meatloaf, Superman, slightly crude language (saved our a$$es), slightly naive. I mean, he's an officer, isn't he? He might not read Ulysses for recreation like Mr. Euro-snob did, but he must be at least a little educated.
I liked it though, fun episode, esp. when Malcolm actually did wake up on the Enterprise.
