Storyline

While traveling to Azati Prime, the Enterprise needs to cross a trans-dimensional disturbance phenomenon that could kill the humans. Dr. Phlox proposes to put the crew in coma for four days while the Enterprise travels through the phenomenon in impulse. In the middle of the journey, Dr. Phlox hears weird noises and T'Pol helps him to stay in the command of the ship. When they realize that the disturbance is longer than expected, Dr. Phlox needs to activate the warp engines to save the crew. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Billingsley's solo performance makes this reality-challenged episode fun to watch
15 December 2007 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

Phlox is left alone and in command of Enterprise while the crew sleeps through a dangerous form of radiation which Phlox is apparently not susceptible to. As the days progress the doctor begins to have troublesome experiences and it seems that he may be in psychological or physical danger, or both. And if the doctor has a problem, so does the ship! The episode is ably directed by Roxann Dawson with her usual dramatic flourishes and good use of the camera. The script is slightly above average for Enterprise, but has much more to do with fiction than science.

Better than the average character study for this series - largely because Billingsley is such a fine performer.

Mildly recommended.
