The Robinson Nebula
28 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While going to investigate a huge dark matter, Captain Archer receives a message from Admiral Forrest informing that A.G. had died in Mount McKinley. T'Pol uses the Starfleet Rules to make companion to the grieving Archer in the shuttle pod and he tells the story of Captain A.G. Robinson and the Starfleet's NX program, when the warp engine developed by his father was tested for the first time. After a failure in his mission with the destruction of the prototype and shutdown of the program pressed by the Vulcans, Robinson helped Archer and Trip in an unauthorized flight with the second prototype.

"First Flight" is a nice episode where the test of the warp is tested for the first time successfully reaching warp 2.5, after an initial problem. What I like most is the last line of T'Pol dedicating the discovered nebula to Robinson. My vote is seven.
