Odd but quite enjoyable
25 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode is very unusual in structure and like none other. It begins with T'Pol, Trip and the Captain sharing some wine and talking. Trip encourages T'Pol to open up and tell them a story. She responds by telling them about her great-great-great grandmother who, according to the story, actually landed on Earth well before Zefram Cochran--even though history books record that he was the first human to come into contact with the Vulcans. It seems that a small Vulcan ship was covertly observing the Earth when it developed engine problems and crashed in Pennsylvania in 1957. What follows is a cute story about three Vulcans trying to blend in--and one which really seemed to take to American culture.

This story isn't perfect--the ending is awfully vague and you really have no idea if this really happened or not. But, it was very entertaining and enjoyable--and is well worth seeing.
