Series: Star Trek: Enterprise
Boring and forgettable episode shows Travis, our fully uninteresting and undeveloped helmsmen, returning to the ship he grew up on...the Horizon. He discovers just before he heads there that his father has died, which is unfortunate since he left for Enterprise on bad terms. So he spends his time on his old home reuniting with people and learning about himself along the way.
This episode should have changed that, but despite being almost entirely focused on him, it still felt in the end like he had no character to explore. He was a cardboard cutout, put on the bridge to deliver the occasional line and drive the ship. This episode didn’t add anything to his character, and it just felt like everyone involved just slept through this one.
Shame, they had a chance to finally do something new with Travis, hell do anything at all! But they squandered that chance and kept the character as dull and uninteresting as possible.
