Goofs

When Trip is repairing his transceiver, there is a shot of the glass dome of his shuttle reflecting a light source. Since the sun has not yet come up at that stage, it must be the reflection of a lighting equipment. See more »

[Tucker gets hit by a discharge]
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Damn it!
Zho'Kaan: "Damn it".
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Well, looks like we've made some headway in our first contact between Humans and, um... whatever you are. Unfortunately your first word is somethin' you wouldn't wanna use in polite company.

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!
