My Review
Ent: Anomaly brings us some excitement after a dull and cliched season finale and season premiere. While little more than an action episode, this episode establishes a number of interesting facts regarding the current arc. The action is sprinkled generously across the episode, but all of it is well placed. I'm pleased to note that all of the characters got a good showing in this episode, which is the exception rather than the rule. We now know that it is impossible or at least difficult to leave the expanse once you've entered it, creating a situation similar to Voy: The Void. The Osaarian pirates in this episode certainly reinforced that tone. Speaking of the Osaarians, we learn from them that Trellium-D is necessary to protect a ship against the spatial anomalies of the expanse. I wonder when Enterprise will finally procure some.
