14 – Sleeping Dogs

Grade: D+

Sleeping Dogs (2002) on IMDb


The Enterprise investigates a large gas giant planet, and finds an old ship adrift in the atmosphere. Wanting to help, Captain Archer sends T’Pol, Hoshi, and Reed to the ship, and they discover it is a Klingon ship.


This really wasn’t my favorite episode, but at least it was a bit better than some of the previous ones were. It still bothers me that the Klingons return kindness with hostility. They seem far too much like Klingons in the TNG series, and not enough like the ones in the OS. And I’m not talking just about how they look, but also about how they act. I could have done without the excessively long ending scene.
