Storyline

Enterprise is finally back home and the crew is taking some time off. T'Pol invites Tucker, who has nowhere else to go, for a trip to Vulcan. Back there she finds out Koss, still wants to marry her, even after she rejected her. Phlox finds out opinions of aliens have changed after the Xindi attack. In a bar he's 'asked' to do further drinking in the Vulcan consulate. Archer meets an old friend, Erika Hernandez, who has been appointed captain of the second warp 5 starship, the Columbia. After a not so well briefing with the Vulcans who have some offending questions about the destruction of the Vulcan ship Seleya in the Expanse, Archer decides he needs to take some time off in the mountains. He is joined by Erika. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

Archer mentions captain Jefferies as one of the designers of the NX-class starships. This is a reference to Walter M.

Quotes

Captain Jonathan Archer: If we weren't out there stirring up trouble, seven million people might still be alive.
Captain Erika Hernandez: You weren't stirring up trouble, you were exploring.
Captain Jonathan Archer: I'm not sure there's much of a difference.
Captain Erika Hernandez: So what do you suggest? Put our starships in mothballs?
Captain Jonathan Archer: No. We need them. But look at the Vulcans. They're not explorers. They keep their ships close to home. Never know who's gonna come calling.
Captain Erika Hernandez: That's not the mission either one of us signed up for.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Maybe you'll feel differently after you've delivered a few dozen...

It Is Good to Be Home
19 October 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Enterprise returns to Earth and Captain Archer and his crew are welcomed as heroes. In his speech, Archer recalls the twenty-seven crew- members that died along their mission. While the Enterprise is in maintenance, Captain Archer is invited for a debriefing for the Starfleet high command and the crew is released on vacation. T'Pol invites Tucker to visit Vulcan and stay in her home; however she finds that her mother T'Les was forced to an early retirement since the Vulcans blame T'Pol for the incident in the Vulcan sanctuary of P'Jem. Further, the only chance her mother has to return to her active life is through the wedding of T'Pol with her former fiancé Koss, whose father is very influent. Meanwhile Dr. Phlox goes to Earth with Lieutenant Reed and Ensign Maywheather and while drinking in a bar, he finds the prejudice of earthlings with aliens after the Xindi attack. In the debriefing, Archer feels offended by the Vulcan Ambassador Soval and while the report is on hold, he climbs the mountains with his old friend Captain Erika Hernandez to calm down.

"Home" is a very emotional episode of "Enterprise" where the best part is the series of revelations disclosed to Tucker and T'Pol in Vulcan and the climax is certainly the wedding of T'Pol. The analogy of the September, 11th with the Xindi attack and the consequent prejudice with aliens is very clear and is the strongest part of this episode. The effect of the assignment to the Expansion to Captain Archer is less engaging than it should be, but is not bad at all. In the end, it sounds ironic the salute of Captain Archer in the beginning telling that it is good to be home since most of the crew-members are feeling outcast indeed. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Lar" ("Home")
