Enterprise “A Night in Sickbay” (part 5 of 8)
In darkened Sickbay, a caption tells us it is now 1:32 am. It still doesn’t matter.
An alarm sounds, and a panicked Archer jumps out of his bunk. Dr. Phlox says Porthos has gone into anaphylactic shock. Archer helpfully yells, “You said we’d know in a few hours if this would work!” Phlox has to patiently explain that it has been a few hours, they do know, and it’s not working. Good god, is Archer an idiot.
After doing some Whatever Procedure with hyposprays, Phlox informs Archer in a really confusing way that the crisis has passed, for now.
He then asks Archer how things are going with the Kreetassans. Oh, you really don’t want to know, Doctor. Archer launches into another character-destroying spiel that’s basically a regurgitation of everything he’s said in the episode up until now. And there’s one more reason this episode is so abysmal: It’s the same five minutes of lousy material repeated over and over until this thing mercifully ends.
