Star Trek: Enterprise Rewatch: “The Communicator”

Reed leaves his communicator behind on a primitive planet, and much wackiness ensues. Actually, it’s not that wacky, which is part of the problem. Too bad he didn’t enable the “find my phone” feature. The Star Trek: Enterprise Rewatch looks for “The Communicator.”

An excerpt:

Ye flipping gods, what a boring episode. Trek has done this type of story many times before, where the crew has to deal with a pre-warp society and do their best not to influence it (not always successfully) and remove their technology (again, not always successfully), from the original series’ “Tomorrow is Yesterday” to TNG’s “First Contact” to SNW’s “Strange New Worlds,” and “The Communicator” is by far the least interesting iteration of this particular plot.
