Please Don't Call a Shuttle
20 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

It seems like every time the crew takes a shuttle out, something bad happens. If they aren't crashing on some mountainous planet, the crew is being kidnapped and placed in one of the nasty prisons the aliens are running. In this one, Archer and Tripp are arrested for smuggling and put on a big clunky transport ship. It is something like the Roman galleys where the men sit on benches with electronic restraints on their wrists. Archer has to use his acting ability to keep the trust of the bad guys, who take over the ship. Of course, they have been victimized by some indifferent bureaucracy.
