Proponents say "they're just trying to be in sync with current events." I say we watch Trek to be distracted from current events. We don't need Taliban/Abu Ghraib/Al-Qaeda shoved in our faces. It's good writing when you can coax your audience into feeling what the characters feel. It's bad writing when you smack them upside the pointy ears with it. I missed the whole third season, which followed that annoying "time police" crappola of the first two. Fourth season? Romulans and Remans and Vulcans, oh my! Romulans and Remans and Vulcans, oh my! Archer gets a dead Vulcan's spirit in him, finds an orb, becomes a Prophet, has lunch with the Wormhole Aliens, maybe shaves his head, and winds up commanding Somewhat Deep Space 0.9? Whatever happened to the isolated episode storylines that worked in TOS and TNG? My wife even said it's become a soap opera. Now THAT'S bad.
