Did You Know?


Tarquin was a family of Roman kings in the 6th century BC. They were not of the same ethnicity as the Romans they ruled, as they came from the neighboring region of Etruria, whose people (the Etruscans) were later assimilated into the Roman culture and ceased to exist as a distinct identity. The Tarquins were held up in Roman history as the worst examples of brutal tyrants, prompting the English wit D.H. Lawrence to quip "The Etruscans were vicious. We know it, because their enemies and exterminators said so." Tarquin was also the namesake of another science fiction icon, the cruel Admiral Wilhuff Tarkin in the original Star Wars movie, Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). See more »


Tarquin: [on the graves in his backyard] The first one was Morianna Taal. She was my first companion. Like you, she had a unique mind.
Ensign Hoshi Sato: And the other three?
Tarquin: Companions as well. When I lost Morianna, I began to search for another. And another... Sometimes I don't know what is worse - being alone or having to bury the people I've come to care about.

Kind of pathetic....
30 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Hoshi is finding life very difficult on the ship. She keeps seeing and hearing things and she insists it is VERY real...but there's no evidence anything is really there. However, eventually a being named Tarquin appears and explains himself. He is not really there- -he's a projection that would like to meet her since she is super- uber cool and would make a nice friend. He also promises to try to help the ship locate the Xindi and learn more about them. However, it turns out that Tarquin is such a pathetic wienie--even more pathetic than Hoshi! You know you are a social misfit when even Hoshi thinks you are pathetic! Regardless, he doesn't look like he'll let her leave--as he's very lonely and Dr. Who-like, as he wants a companion.

This is a mildly interesting and pathetic episode. While you feel sorry for Tarquin, he's a creepy guy as well. Not a must-see but worth your time.

By the way, perhaps I missed something. I understand that Tarquin's people exiled him to the planet he lives on--but why couldn't he just leave and have Enterprise take him away from this lonely place?
