Did You Know?

It is finally stated in this episode that the planet Vulcan is 16 light-years away from Earth. Author James Blish once placed Vulcan in orbit around the star 40 Eridani A, part of the star constellation Eridanus, which was subsequently adopted by Gene Roddenberry. If there were to be a planet there (which has yet to be found), it would indeed, like Vulcan, be unusually sunny, and 16 light-years from Earth.See more »

It Is Good to Be Home, 19 October 2009
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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")
