T'Pol suggests and Captain Archer accepts a leave for the crew in
planet Risa, famous for the relaxation technique of the local
masseuses. However, Captain Archer is called by Admiral Maxwell
Forrest, who assigns the Enterprise to bring the Vulcan ambassador
V'Lar from planet Mazar to the Vulcan warship Sh'Raan. V'Lar has fallen
in disgrace with the accusation of being a criminal, and the Vulcan
High Command requested her urgent removal from the planet. T'Pol
prepares the Enterprise to welcome the ambassador, and after a brief
meeting with V'Lar, she becomes disappointed with her former idol. Out
of the blue, the Enterprise is attacked by a Mazarite ship, whose
captain demands that V'Lar should be delivered to them. Captain Archer
asks V'Lar the reason for the attack, but she does not justify,
pleading classified information, and Archer decides to return to Mazar.
After having a private meeting with V'Lar, T'Pol goes to Captain's
Archer's cabin and asks him to return immediately to the course to
"Fallen Hero" is one of the best episodes of this First Season. The beginning is hilarious, with T'Pol suggesting a "relaxation" of the earthlings due to the reduction of productivity and need of "relieving the stress" of the command of the Enterprise. The gentle and nice ambassador V'Lar seems to be a path to approach the relationships between Earth and Vulcan. Jolene Blalock is fantastic in the role of a Vulcan woman with bond of trust, respect and friendship with Captain Archer and the Enterprise crew-members. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): "Herói Decadente" ("Decadent Hero")
The humans are on their way to Risa in order to get la...I mean, have
some shore leave. However, they are once again diverted from this by an
emergency mission to collect a disgraced Vulcan ambassador from some
crappy planet. The Mazarites seem very keen to get rid of her and the
Enterprise takes her aboard. However, a short time later, a Mazarite
ship arrives and demands they hand over the ambassador! What gives? At
the same time, the ambassador is acting kind of strange--especially for
a Vulcan. What gives?!
This is a great episode because it does quite a bit to further the overarching plot about the Earth-Vulcan relationship, the relationship between Archer and T'Pol as well as being very exciting. Too bad all the episodes aren't this exciting and there's little not to like about this one...unless you are a nitpicky jerk.
