spoiler warning; if you haven't seen these two episodes I highly recommend you find them.
So it seems that now that they cancelled the series, the writers are finally having fun with the show and doing creative stuff. In this two part story, an evil version of the enterprise crew from a parallel universe come across a captured Enterprise from the original series (old old uniforms, kirk times) and use the ship to their advantage to destroy all other 'rebel' aliens. There is no Federation, instead there is only the Terran empire. We see Sato the asian chick being a total whore and sleeping with whoever is in power, and we also see T'Pol wearing a sexy midriff. It pisses me off that when the show is finally getting interesting they have to cancel it. Boo!
They showcase some new aliens, one of which look terrible due to poor design and poor execution of cgi. There is a reptile dude that the captain fights, was done as a tribute to Kirk? Did this same fight happen in the old old series? I think I remember seeing a pic of Kirk somewhere fighting a reptile dude similar to this before...
Also, is it just me or does the blue alien guy look like the Aliens that Bobo designed for Elite Force 2?
