Crossing the Line of Ethics
3 March 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Reptilians stop the attack to the Enterprise that is stranded seriously damaged, without propulsion and with many casualties. Captain Archer is sent back in an aquatic pod and evaluates the damage report. When a ship with problems caused by the anomalies hails the Enterprise, Archer proposes to trade their warp engine by Trellium and supplies, but the other captain does not accept the offer. When Archer decodes Degra's message calling him to a meeting with the Xindi council scheduled in three days, Archer decides to use force and take the warp coil by force from the aliens. Meanwhile T'Pol goes to the sick bay and tells Dr. Phlox that she is addicted in Trellium and unable to control her emotions.

In "Damage", Captain Archer crosses the line of ethics and steals the warp engine of an alien ship using the maximum that the end justifies the means that recalls the behavior of many governors of the Twentieth and the Twentieth Centuries that think in the same way. I personally hated this despicable episode and I believe the author could have written a better action to be taken considering the moral character of Archer. I do not agree with the destruction of his moral and ethical principles in such easy way. In the rest, the saga of the Enterprise goes on, but not as noble as it has been along the other seventy episodes. My vote is seven.
