Captain Archer meets Mr. Krabs...
24 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, Enterprise has done some repairs on an alien's ship. Zobral (Clancy Brown) insists that they follow him to his planet for a feast to thank them for their help. He is VERY insistent and the Captain and Trip go for a visit on this desert planet. However, after some wining and dining and sports (yes, sports) there turns out to be a hidden agenda behind Zobral's invitation. What it is and how this nearly gets Trip and Archer killed is something you'll need to see for yourself.

This is a decent enough episode but is made just a bit better since you get to see Clancy Brown. Too often you hear him as he is the voice actor for many TV shows and seeing Mr. Krabs in person is nice--though he's done quite a bit of acting in addition to the voice acting. Worth seeing.
