Acquisition (ENT S1 E19)

Published on: 9th April, 2024

Acquisition (Star Trek: Enterprise, S1 E19) was recommended by nazzy she/her, who said: The Enterprise crew have to take back their ship from a bunch of Ferengi pirates, and it's just plain funny. There are some great comedy beats, everybody gets to be clever, and Trip spends half the episode in his underwear. (if, you know, you're into that sort of thing)

Acquisition first aired on March 27, 2002, written by S : Rick Berman & Brannon Braga, T : Maria Jacquemetton & Andre Jacquemetton, and directed by James Whitmore, Jr.

The Joy of Trek is hosted by Khaki & Kay, with editing & production by Chief Engineer Greg and music by Fox Amoore (Bandcamp | Bluesky)

About the Podcast

The Joy of Trek
Every Star Trek story is somebody's favorite, and that might as well be us!
Two lifelong besties (and their trusty engineer) adventure through the vast constellations of Star Trek's decades on TV, especially the lesser-loved stories.

But instead of bitching about why they’re bad, we’re going to find the joy in each of them, because everybody loves the great episodes, but it takes dedication, insight, and hard-working fools to love the clunkers too.

And by Jove, we are those fools!

Positive, inclusive and optimistic (though not uncritical!) we try to find the brilliance even in the least-loved episodes of our favorite TV shows!
