Yet another in my string of super-geeky posts…
So Enterprise has gotten simply amazing levels of eye-candy in its third season. With the exception of the last episode we watched, the writing has definitely improved as well.
It is totally the advances in computer graphics that have allowed this. They can put 15 new spaceships in an episode that will never be seen again, because it just doesn’t take that long to create a new 3-D model. And they can be super-pretty, complete with nacelles getting blown off and so forth.
A few episodes ago, they blew up a moon. A moon.
