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)

Wow...the humans seemed amazingly stupid in this one.
13 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Dr. Arik Soong (Brent Spiner...again) has been in prison for doing bad things...making 'augments'. While they never say it, they seem like the same sorts of beings that caused war on Earth and from which the dreaded Kahn was a member. However, they are willing to let him out of prison, at least temporarily, because some of Soong's 'children' have grown into psychopaths who murdered a Klingon crew and stole their ship. The big question is why would Soony help them?!

On the way to apparently get these renegades, pirates from Orion kidnap a bunch of crew from Enterprise and Archer goes with Soong to the Orion home world to rescue them. Again, you wonder why they trust Soong. And, after Soony does EXACTLY what the audience expects, the Captain and his crew seem pretty stupid--like they have no plan or idea what to do.

While this episode is interesting, the stupidity of the Enterprise crew makes this all seem a bit contrived and disappointing. As a result, it's all very weak.
