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

This episode contains the first Star Trek female nude scene presented in a sexual context (numerous episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) showed nudes in the context of art classes, nudist living, torture, streaking in protest, etc.). This 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!

This should be entitled 'Turf Wars...and Sex'.
5 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an episode where I felt like yelling at some of the characters to SHUT UP and stop with the hostility! First, Lt. Reed and Hayes are having a turf war where both guys seem to be engaged in some macho theatrics to prove who has a bigger...um...role on the ship. Second, Trip begins showing the Vulcan neuropressure to a cute marine--and T'Pol seems a bit miffed. Also, crew members start talking about this as well...and Trip is just wondering why anyone cares. Third, Enterprise locates a capsule in space where there is a dying alien-- and when they rescue him and try to save him, the alien is angry!! What's with all the anger in this episode?!

This is not a particularly good episode. The macho theatrics are, at times, a bit embarrassing. In addition, it's obvious that the show is willing to do anything to get fans--including showing LOTS of skin. The opening scene and a sex scene between T'Pol and Trip (with LOTS of skin on T'Pol's part) make it obvious how desperate the makes of the show have become in order to get folks to watch. The only thing I really liked about this episode was the final scene between Archer and the alien...that was pretty cool!
