Did You Know?


Archer mentions captain Jefferies as one of the designers of the NX-class starships. This is a reference to Walter M. Jefferies, one of the designers of the original starship Enterprise (NCC-1701) from Star Trek (1966): The Original Series, after whom the 'Jefferies tubes' of all Star Trek series are named as well.

Guess who's coming to dinner....Vulcan style.
13 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While "Home" is an interesting episode, it's also a very 'small' one-- where very little actually happens during most of the episode. There are no villains, no explosions, no serious problems---just the crew having some shore leave now that they've saved the Earth. Much of the show illustrates how stupid people are in the 23rd century--both on Earth and on Vulcan. After some partying to celebrate their return, Phlox is treated like crap by some xenophobic jerks. And, on Vulcan, Tripp accompanies T'Pol and T'Pol's mommy makes him feel about as welcome as herpes--at least initially. Again, xenophobia has reared its ugly head in these pre-Federation days. As for the Captain, he's got a lot of self-doubts. The only really important occurrence is at the end...and it happens to T'Pol. Overall, an interesting and mostly uneventful show.
