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)

Quotes

[Phlox has discovered something odd during Travis' autopsy]
Archer: Did you find something?
Dr. Phlox: As a matter of fact, I did. This is not Ensign Mayweather.
Archer: What?
Dr. Phlox: It's a nearly perfect replica. I've never seen a lifeform duplicated in such extraordinary detail, from its epidermis down to its cellular proteins. This is remarkable work.
Archer: If it's so perfect, how do you know it's not him?
Dr. Phlox: You recall what happened to Crewman Fisher last month after our visit to Tessik Prime?
Archer: He came down with Rigelian fever.

Pure sci-fi glory. Superb episode!
29 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now this is more like it!

After the major canon faux pas of Carbon Creek it's great to see a return to some pure sci-fi.

The great thing about this episode is that it is completely self contained. No big story arcs running through it and no dangerous and disrespectful shoehorning in of races like Ferengi or Romulan that hadn't even been discovered by TOS crew as seen in previous episodes of Enterprise.

A very creepy vibe throughout as it is set on an unmanned and automated alien space station, the best part being that it is left open to speculation as to just who built it creating some great mystery.

This is pure Star Trek and pure sci-fi glory diving headfirst in to new territory and no relying on old gags.

Brilliant!
