Trivia

We learn that the name of Harris' organization Section 31, although never officially revealed in this or the previous episode, is derived from Article 14, Section 31 of the original Starfleet Charter, which made allowances for "bending the rules during times of extraordinary threat". It is the only direct reference - and, thus, confirmation - of Section 31 in this two-parter. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of this episode, as Trip is just about to transfer from the Columbia to the Enterprise, he is in an EV suit with the Enterprises logo prominently on the front. In the previous episode, Captain Hernandez told him to have the patch on his duty uniform changed. So either the Columbia is borrowing EV suits from Captain Archer, or the prop department goofed.

Quotes

Fleet Admiral Krell: This is Fleet Admiral Krell. I'm under orders to eradicate this colony.
Captain Jonathan Archer: You don't have to do that. My doctor can stop the plague.
Fleet Admiral Krell: I have a more effective solution.

Engaging Conclusion
26 April 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The only hope to Enterprise is the support of Columbia that brings Trip. Travis synchronizes the flight of Enterprise with Columbia while Reed brings Trip on board in a risky operation. Then Trip cold starts the reactor and repairs the system while Columbia sustains a warp field with Enterprise. Then they travel together to the genetic research facility in the Qu'Vat colony. Dr. Antaak and Phlox discover a cure, but they do not tell the General K'Vagh that the process of creating augments will be interrupted. Meanwhile Harris contacts Archer to discuss the situation of Reed. Archer reintegrates Reed to his position, but demanding loyalty to him. When the Enterprise and Columbia arrives in Qu'Var, they are attacked by the ships of Admiral Krell that has received orders to destroy the colony. However, Phlox sends a capsule to his Bird of Prey and releases the virus in Krell and his crew and interrupt the "sterilization" process.

"Divergence" is an engaging conclusion of "Affliction". This series usually gives great lines and space to lead and support characters. But in this episode, the participations of Phlox, Trip and Reed overshadow Archer and T'Pol. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Ponto de Vista" ("Viewpoint")
