Storyline

While Reed and Major Hayes are fighting over a new training program and Trip is performing neuropressure with MACO Amando Cole making T'Pol seem jealous, Enterprise finds a pod in a dangerous ever expanding gravimetric field. Inside is a scaled alien dying from cellular decay. He claims he is a prisoner promised his freedom if he cooperated in an experiment. Archer knows there's more to it when it is discovered the pod's hull is of the same material the Spheres are composed of. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

Episode #3.15, "Harbinger", contained the first Star Trek nude scene presented in a sexual context (an episode of TNG did show a nude woman, but it was in the context of an art class, and both Troi women, from the back). The episode aired in the United States on 11 February 2004 during the height of controversy over Janet Jackson exposing a breast during the Super Bowl halftime show, on a network owned by CBS (which was taking heat for the incident). As a result, the scene in which T'Pol's rear end is exposed was censored. Canadian broadcasts, however, were uncensored. See more »

Quotes

[Archer is grilling Reed and Hayes about their violent encounter]
Captain Jonathan Archer: We're in a dangerous region of space. We're trying to stop an alien race from destroying Earth. We face attacks from all sides, enemies everywhere we go. The last thing I need is to hear that two of my senior officers have been admitted to sickbay, because they suddenly regressed to the level of five-year-olds!

Rivalry and Jealousy
21 February 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Trip seduces the private Amanda Cole performing the Vulcan neuro-pressure technique with her in her quarter and T'Pol feels jealous. Major Hayes proposes a drill of defense to Captain Archer, breaking the chain of command in Enterprise, and Reed becomes upset with the training program of his rival. Meanwhile, the Enterprise finds a pod in a huge expansion field with a slight and erratic vital life signal of humanoid inside. They bring the alien on board and Dr. Phlox realizes that he is dying of cellular decay. When the alien awakes, he tells that he is a prisoner that had accepted to participate in an experiment. However, Archer believes he knows more than that.

I liked "Harbinger" a lot, first because of the jealous reaction of T'Pol to the flirt of Trip and Amanda, and then after her one night stand with Trip. The rivalry of Reed and Hayes also gives funny moments to the episode. Last but not the least, the dying alien gives the action to the good story. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Precursor" ("The Harbinger")
