When T'Pol opens an alien object found in the surface of a planet by
Trip, a gas is released and the entire crew of Enterprise faints. Four
Ferengi pirates - Krem, Muk, Grish and Ulis break in Enterprise to
steal the supplies and belongings in the starship and they awake
Captain Archer trying to find the location of the vault. Meanwhile,
Trip was in the decontamination chamber and is not affected by the gas,
and wakes T'Pol. Using the greed of the quartet, Archer and Trip lure
"Acquisition" introduces the greedy Ferengi merchants actually four pirates of space. The story is funny, and I loved when the crushed Krem asks T'Pol to caress his ears. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Aquisição" ("Acquisition")
While the humans don't seem to have identified the Ferengi as a species
until much later in time (during the time in which "Star Trek: The Next
Generation" is set), here we see them nearly 200 years earlier. But
they are never referred to as the Ferengi--which is nice for continuity
The episode begins with nearly all the crew unconscious and several Ferengi wandering about the ship stealing everything. It seems they used some sort of knockout gas and put everyone into deep sleep, though Trip was spared because he was in a decontamination chamber. After a while, the Ferengi awaken Archer, as they assume the humans are greedy jerks just like they are. Their question for Archer is 'where do you keep your vault?'--because they naturally assume these new creatures have a hiding place for their valuables. Archer uses this to his advantage and begins sowing discord among these interlopers by using their greed against them.
Like previous Trek series, this one is meant as a humorous one and "Star Trek: Enterprise" so far has had precious little humor (aside from the episode where Trip got pregnant). So, it's a welcome relief to see the dopey Ferengi and watch Trip and Archer play them so well. Worth seeing and kind of fun--and very memorable.
