“Sleeping Dogs” 20th-anniversary reflections.
When the NX-01 identifies a gas giant, Archer gets excited to investigate. But a disabled ship turns out to belong to the Klingons, and the third meeting with the warrior race goes about how we would expect. Being human, the crew attempts a rescue, but becomes trapped themselves, setting off a race that requires cooperation between the burgeoning adversaries.
In this episode of Warp Five, hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing continue our 20th-anniversary retrospective that takes you through all of Star Trek: Enterprise, one episode at a time. In this installment, we explore “Sleeping Dogs” and how Archer learns that, to deal with this adversary, he must start thinking like a Klingon. We also discuss character growth for Hoshi and T'Pol, how the entire crew is learning to work together, and how this story highlights the importance of trying to understand the other side.
