Tonight's 'Sleeping Dogs' is a good episode worth watching, according to a new online review.

'Hercules' at Ain't It Cool News awarded the episode three out of a possible five stars, which translates to "actually worth your valuable time."

The review praised the performances of Linda Park (Hoshi Sato) and Jolene Blalock (T'Pol). "'Sleeping Dogs' benefits monumentally from the new chemistry shared by Hoshi and T'Pol – to say nothing of Linda Park and Jolene Blalock's typically fabulous performances generally," 'Hercules' wrote, adding that "Hoshi [...] seems to be warming up to her new life as space adventurer."

'Sleeping Dogs' was described as a "marked improvement" over writer Fred Dekker's first Enterprise effort, 'The Andorian Incident'. The episode did have a few faults though, including the depiction of the Klingons. "Longtime viewers may find the relentlessly bull-headed Klingons and the dire race against time a little too familiar," the review said. "Trip continues to be used to good effect, but his role feels diminished of late; it’d be nice to see more of him."
