Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: I tell ya, I wouldn't trade my time on Enterprise, not for anything. I've seen things I couldn't have imagined back home. I saw the... Great Plume of Agosoria. And I saw the... ringed moons of Matalas Prime... And I stood on an... asteroid crater, twice as high as Everest. Went diving in the ice caves of Etheenia. Rode in a... Suliban cell ship. Spent the night... I spent the night with a princess. Oh, and I... I even got pregnant once. Now, there's a story. I'm sure you have stories too. ...

better than the average second season episode
11 March 2007 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

Enterprise is exploring a gas giant with sixty some odd moons. Trip is out testing a new autopilot system on a shuttlenear one of the moons and mostly out of contact due to the moon's sensor and transmission dampening properties. Trip gets into a brief dogfight with an alien patrol vessel and they both go down. An Alien cruiser then approaches Enterprise and the two (now enemy) captains must figure out a way to retrieve their missing crew members and get out of the seemingly inevitable battle that must follow.

This is the third time ST has adapted the plot of 'Enemy Mine' for its own purposes. This time, it mostly works. The alien species is much more interesting than the usual Enterprise addition, and Roxann Dawson's direction is above average for this series.

Worth a watch!
