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)

Dealing with the Tellerites is like dealing with an ultra-sleazy used car dealer...look out for the hidden costs!
25 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode is a follow-up to the previous one. After the Enterprise is damaged by a Romulan mine, Trip is worried that they cannot repair the ship themselves and have to travel back to Earth space to fix the ship...a very long voyage considering that their warp speed is compromised. However, when they send out a distress call, the Tellerites respond--with an automated repair station. The repairs it can make are incredible and the cost seems extremely reasonable...but Archer is worried that it's all too good to be true. And, in the end, it turns out he's true...the computer system that runs the place is truly nasty and has a very hidden agenda.

This is a very good episode. It's not a great one but it is original and the hidden agenda is pretty creepy. Worth seeing.
