The thing about Enterprise is that when it was really good it was REALLY good and the episodes stood out. For me one of those episode was Detained. It’s a reasonably straight forward concept to put together but it’s executed well and it’s nice seeing Travis have something to do.
The idea that not all Suliban are the enemy and for most they are victims along with everyone else is good storytelling. I liked how at time Enterprise tried to show that there was more to the species than just their basic traits – scientist Klingons for example.
I thought the image of Travis roughed up and eating gruel stood out.
