Captain Archer is a big pig-headed in this one...and it's the mother of all confrontations!
9 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The trail leading to the Xindi weapon has taken the Enterprise right to the planet, Azati Prime, where the planet-killing device is being made. Along the way, they've picked up a Xindi insectoid ship and Archer plans on flying the ship on a suicide mission to blow up the super weapon. However, the recurring character of the galactic time cop brings Archer 400 years into the future and tells him NOT to fly that mission--he's needed to meet with the Xindi and make them his new BFFs. But Archer inexplicably decides to fly the mission anyway--and you KNOW it's going to fail...but he does it anyway. What's next? Lots of violence and chaos and action and stuff...

This is a very good episode for anyone who is tired of all the episodes leading up to the Xindi confrontation, as it's now here and the show is one crazy action scene after another. You know that the crew MUST survive all this because the other Trek shows all occur AFTER this one...but how?!
