Star Trek: Enterprise - Harbinger 

Was there some virus going around that changed the infected individual into a 13-year-old? How else to explain the behavior of Reed, Tripp and T'Pol? Plus MACO Cole, but she barely seems out of her teens anyway.

Reed's behavior was inexplicable. How would he have gotten to the position he currently holds with that kind of petty, jealous response to fellow officers? Especially when it was getting in the way of an opportunity to increase the skills of the members of his own team. I thought Major Hayes summed it up with, "Why won't you let me do my job?"

Trip and T'Pol. I was waiting for one of them to say, "I know you are, but what am I?" I'm not buying at all that it was just an "exploration" for T'Pol, but for it to be otherwise would mean that she's lying to cover her embarassment at the situation. Neither action really fits with the whole Vulcan philosophy. Maybe it's the lingering effect of the trellium exposure. It seems to be a given that most ships they encounter in the expanse are lined with the stuff, so that's got to be having some effect on her. I'm going with that.

Archer seems to be getting a bit enthusiastic with the license to torture thing...
