Enterprise is en route, to the Berengaria system, one of the supposed places for a starbase, when an hostile Orion ship approaches. Its captain, Harrad-Sar, agrees to stand down weapons and he has a proposal for captain Archer. Harrad-Sar wants Starfleet to cooperate in a mining operation. He claims he found a source of magnesite, enough to build a thousand warp drives. To improve relations with the Orion Syndicate, Archer decides to agree with the proposal. Harrad-Sar insists on transporting three slave girls to Enterprise as part of the deal. While Archer tries to convince them they are not slaves anymore, the crew seem to be affected by their arrival. The men seem entranced and preoccupied, getting sloppy with their work, the women develop headaches. Meanwhile Trip and T'Pol discuss their relationship. Trip feels compelled to tell the truth about him having dreams about her. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

In Each Man's Head
29 April 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While traveling to the Berengaria, the Enterprise is intercepted by an Orion ship commanded by Captain Harrad-Sar. After an initial hostility, the alien surprisingly invites Captain Archer to pay a visit to him. Archer and Reed are transported to the ship and Harrad-Sar offers a feast and then a dancing show with three seductive Orion females. When Archer returns to Enterprise, he reports to T'Pol that Harrad-Sar had found a huge magnesite mine but did not have the necessary resources to invest in the mining operation. He had offered the location to the Starfleet and in return he would ask a commission of 10% of the extraction. Archer has accepted the deal and received the three Orion dancers as a gift. The Orion females affect the entire crew except T'Pol and Trip. Dr. Phlox discovers that the men have a great increase in their pheromone becoming careless in their duties and easily persuaded by the females and the women have headache affecting their concentration on the job. However, the Vulcan T'Pol is not affected and Trip is mind bounded to her. Sooner Archer realizes that the Orion females are not the slaves on board of Enterprise.

"Bound" is a "sexy" episode of Enterprise, with Captain Archer receiving a Trojan horse through the form of three female aliens on board of his ship capable of almost destroying the Enterprise. The three actresses do a great job in the role of the Orion females in the lead plot. The romance between T'Poll and Trip is delightfully funny. Dr. Phlox as usual is one of the most pleasant character with his witty lines. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Elo" ("Link")
