Series: Star Trek: Enterprise
Enterprise finds a crashed Xindi-Insectoid Ship. The whole crew is dead, but there is a hatchery on board, and if Enterprise doesn’t help, all these babies will die. Archer orders Trip to try and figure out a way to save him, in order to maybe prove to the Xindi that they aren’t as ruthless as they assume. This causes issues with some of the crew, as they can’t see the need to save these babies while the Xindi are planning to destroy them.
He acts as if his orders need to be followed AND understood, yet he never explains his orders to anyone, and they CONSTANTLY seem irrational. It kind of pisses me off. I liked the concept of this episode, but yet again (sing it with me) the execution didn’t entirely work. But I liked the mutiny stuff.
