Storyline

On Earth Dr. Phlox and Hoshi are attacked by aliens, who kidnap Phlox. Captain Archer vows to find him. Reed tries to access the satellite logs, but suddenly gets in contact with a person he seems to know. He orders him to acknowledge his past and works against Archer. T'Pol mind melds with Hoshi and they both find out Rigellians were responsible for the kidnapping. Archer orders Enterprise to follow their trail, not bringing Trip along. He transferred to the Columbia, where some of the crew find him difficult to work with. Trip dreams about T'Pol and strangely she seems to have the same dream. Meanwhile Phlox finds himself amongst Klingons. They want him to find a cure for a lethal virus that has the potential to wipe out the entire population of the Empire.

Trivia

The virus in this episode leaves its Klingon victims without head ridges, which explains the comment Worf makes in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993)'s "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Trials and Tribble-ations (1996)" to a "complicated" problem that is not discussed "with off-worlders". This finally explains the more human-like Klingons of the original series. See more »

So much plot for one episode!!
31 May 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode has a ton of plot compared to a typical episode of "Star Trek: Enterprise"--so hold on tight and be prepared for a heck of a ride!

It begins with Enterprise and the crew back on Earth. Trip has inexplicably asked for a transport to the Enterprise's sister ship, the Columbia. He seems to be dealing with his feelings for T'Pol by running. Soon things get much worse for the crew, as Dr. Phlox is soon kidnapped by Klingon agents. Why would the Klingons go to all this trouble to get the guy? What gives?!

What follows is a very interesting episode about Klingon augments, Reed being sneaky as well as a horrific virus that threatens to possibly kill every Klingon unless Phlox can find a cure. It's all very exciting and complex--hence it's a two-parter. Well worth seeing.
