Storyline

Captain Archer has been captured by Klingons. He's accused of conspiring against the Klingon Empire. He's been promised a trial however and an advocate has been assigned to him, Kolos. During the trial it becomes clear Enterprise had responded to a distress call and rescued 27 people, who were considered traitors by the Klingons and to be picked up by the Klingon captain Duras, now weapons officer. Archer gets the feeling the whole trial is a farce, especially since his advocate tells the magistrate there's no defense. Archer tries to convince Kolos he must do better, while Starfleet, the Vulcan High Command and Enterprise think of other ways to get him released. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Kolos: My father... was a teacher; my mother, a biologist at the university. They encouraged me to take up the law. Now, all young people want to do is take up weapons, as soon as they can hold them. They're told there's honor in victory. Any victory. What honor is there in a victory over a weaker opponent? Had Duras destroyed that ship, he would've been lauded as a hero of the Empire, for murdering helpless refugees. We were a great society, not so long ago. When honor was earned through integrity ...

Archer and the Klingon Empire
14 April 2007 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

This thoroughly satisfying episode of Enterprise recalls J. G. Hertzler to the franchise to play the aging legendary advocate Kolos, in an attempt to save Captain Archer from a death sentence for aiding fugitives from the empire and crippling a Klingon ship. As always, Hertsler makes a truly great Klingon, and he plays this role to the hilt. The court Archer must face operates in much the same way as a kardassian court. Trials are simply formalities which occur prior to sentencing. But of course, Archer, in his self-righteousness and sense of ethics, isn't going to let that happen.

I won't write a spoiler, but I do want to mention that unlike many episodes of Enterprise and Voyager before it, the end of this episode is not a cop-out and does not follow the usual formula.

Recommended!
