Storyline

The crew of a Klingon bird of prey is completely overpowered by two humans and the ship is stolen. The Klingons are not amused, a war seems unavoidable. Starfleet has a pretty good idea who might have something to do with the attack; captain Archer pays a visit to Dr. Soong, a genetic engineer. He's imprisoned because of his plans to make genetically enhanced humans, augments. Years ago Dr. Arik Soong kidnapped embryos and raised them ten years before he was captured. No one ever knows what happened to them, until now. They're responsible for the attack. Archer takes Soong to stop them and prevent a war. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

The new Captains Chair is actually from Star Trek: Nemesis (2002). In a deleted scene after Captain Riker leaves, Picard sits in it and pushes a button, which activates a seat belt, thus Trip's in-joke about "try not to hit that button." The seat belt "ports" are still easily visible on the back rest. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Arik Soong: How can a supposedly intelligent species reject technology that would enhance ability, relieve suffering?
Capt. Jonathan Archer: Genetic engineering has caused a lot of suffering.
Dr. Arik Soong: So did splitting the atom. And yet the first ships to colonize the solar system were nuclear-powered. But... you're not here to discuss that.

Dr. Soong and the Augments
19 October 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Klingons are preparing for war against the Starfleet after the attack of two enhanced humans to a Bird of Prey that was stolen and the dead bodies of the crew launched to the space. The Starfleet command assigns Captain Archer to capture the Augments that they believe that have been created by the imprisoned genetic engineer Dr. Soong to prevent the imminent war. The Enterprise heads to the borderland with Dr. Soong on board but nine crew-member including T'Pol are captured by the Orion Syndicate to be sold in a market slave. Captain Archer and Dr. Soong are beamed to the location to rescue the group. Meanwhile, there is a dispute for the leadership of the Augments between the leader Raakin and the ambitious and rebel Malik.

"Borderline" is an engaging episode of Enterprise and it is great to see Brent "Data" Spinner in the role of a dangerous villain that is a sort of combination of Hitler and God. Let's see how Captain Archer and his crew will deal with the powerful and skilled beings. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Fronteira' ("Frontier")
