Storyline

After the encounter with the Romulan minefield, Enterprise is severely damaged. Engineer Trip fears the worst. With the ship only capable of warp 2.5, traveling back to Jupiter will take practically forever and he doesn't have the necessary components to make the repairs himself. Captain Archer decides to send out a distress call and it isn't long before he gets a response from the Tellarites. They give the coordinates of a strange repair station. Upon approaching Enterprise is scanned. The atmosphere and the docking port are automatically changed to Enterprise' specs. The station is able to repair Enterprise in only 36 hours. The price, only 200 liters of plasma, seems rather low for all the work. Too low? Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Good Episode, but Rip-off of a Great Idea
6 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Trip advises that the Enterprise needs to be repaired but he does not have the necessary components and parts. Archer releases a distress call and receives the coordinates of a fully automated repair facility. The Enterprise is scanned at its arrival, the dock station fits to her dimensions and the "compensation" informed is only 200 liters of plasma, including the repair of Reed's leg. Captain Archer's sixth sense tells him that something seems to be wrong. When Travis is found dead in a forbidden working zone, Archer unravels the secret of the repair station.

"Dead Stop" is another good episode of the second season of Enterprise, but there is a lack of imagination in the authors that resolve the mystery of the repair facility using a rip-off of the successful "The Matrix" (which uses the concept of the unknown "Abre los Ojos"). My conclusion: a good idea like Alejandro Almenábar and Mateo Gil had in "Abre los Ojos" should be patented in the world of cinema to make the authors rich, since many other writers will use it with some improvements and modification. Anyway, I liked "Dead Stop". My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Ponto Morto" ("Dead Spot")
