Storyline

Enterprise is for the second time on its way to Risa when yet again another urgent matter comes up: a distress call. It comes from a small vessel. The owner, Zobral, is extremely happy with the help from Enterprise and invites Captain Archer to his home world for a good meal and a game of Geskana. When Archer and Trip have landed on the desert planet, Enterprise gets a message from the Torothan Chancellor Trelit. He tells Zobral isn't as nice a man as captain Archer thinks.

Trivia

Star Trek: Enterprise (2001) established an annual tradition of featuring crew members from the real-life aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65) in cameo roles. This first happened in this episode and continued in Star Trek: Enterprise: First Flight (2003). As a courtesy, advance copies of first season episodes were sent to the carrier. See more »

When Fame Supersedes Man
19 December 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While heading for a leave in Risa, the Enterprise acknowledges a distress call and changes the course to check. They meet and help Kobral, who invites Captain Archer and Tucker to visit his planet Torothan for a feast and a game of Geskana. They accept the invitation and while having a good time with Kobral and his men, T'Pol receives a message from Torothan chancellor Trelitt. telling that Zobral is a wanted terrorist.

"Desert Crossing", the fame of Captain Archer with his assistance to the Sulibans in "Detained" supersedes himself. Kobral is an ambiguous character, and it is difficult to evaluate how honest he is. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Travessia do Deserto" ("Desert Crossing")
