Storyline

While surveying an uninhabited planet, Enterprise is met by a Tellarite ship. Captain Archer is abducted by Skalaar, a Tellarite hoping to collect a bounty placed on Archer by the Klingons. Meanwhile, a microbe from the planet infects T'Pol and Phlox. The affliction causes T'Pol to prematurely enter Pon farr, a chemical imbalance invoking Vulcans urge to mate. Phlox tries to treat an emotionally unstable T'Pol, who is getting too close for Denobulan comfort. Written by Meribor

This disjointed, exploitative episode is probably the worst of Enterprise's second season, and its awfulness is compounded by the fact that it immediately followed the excellent "First Flight". Archer is kidnapped (again) and threatened with return to a Klingon penal colony. T'Pol and Phlox are infected with a microbe which has caused T'Pol to enter Pon Far. This is, of course, just a set up for showing a lot of Jolene Blalock's skin and indulging the audience's prurient interests. Pon Far will kill her unless she mates and she is in quarantine with Phlox, who is, despite his several open marriages, characterized as a prude.... huh? Blalock's acting is fair, and she sometimes seems very uncomfortable with what she is expected to do. The rest of the plot receives relatively little attention. A good episode to skip. Filler.
