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 »

Trip transfers off Enterprise, Phlox is abducted
1 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The following is a summary of the episode #15 from the last season of Enterprise: Trip begins his new assignment aboard the Enterprise's companion ship; Aliens capture Phlox and force him to help them find a cure for a virus that threatens their race.

The following section is a personal commentary by me: This episode is one of the best I've seen. It's too bad the series got canceled when it was finally getting good. I admit that I stopped watching this show for after the first two seasons. The whole romance between T'Pal and Trip was getting WAY to stupid. It was obvious that the ratings were lagging and they were adding sex to spice it up. It's only now that it's in reruns that I'm getting to see the best shows.
