Star Trek: Enterprise Rewatch: “Vanishing Point”

Sato goes through the transporter for the first time, and it’s not a pleasant experience at all. Neither is watching this tired slog of an episode. The Star Trek: Enterprise Rewatch reaches a “Vanishing Point.”

An excerpt:

Oddly, the thing that annoyed me most was the name Cyrus Ramsey. Hoshi Sato is from Japan. She was teaching in Argentina when we first met her. Yet her subconscious comes up with an aggressively white-guy name for this person who had a transporter accident. Mostly because this script was by Rick Berman and Brannon Braga, the co-creators and by far the most prolific writers on this show, and if Enterprise has shown us nothing else, it’s that their world is mostly populated by white guys.
