After receiving three new warp injectors by the generous Kreetassans, Enterprise is in need of warp plasma. The Kreetassans give the crew the location of a merchant colony with a deuterium refinery. But after arriving the colonists seem to be very reluctant to trade at all. Enterprise is only able to purchase 200 liters for a ridiculous price and must repair two pumps at the colony. Captain Archer and the crew are beginning to wonder what's going on. The deuterium should have been very profitable, but there's poverty all around. Then Enterprise detects the arrival of a Klingon cruiser. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Did You Know?


During the showdown, when the miners and the Enterprise crew are in the ditch awaiting the Klingons and finally trapping them inside the deuterium field, the sun keeps changing position. For instance, the scene of the Klingons trapped in the fire circle and the shot of Tessic speaking to them has evidently been filmed at different times of the day. Most likely, the Klingons have later been digitally "inserted" into the fire. See more »


[awaiting their encounter with the Klingons, Archer tells Tessic about his first run-in with the Suliban]
Captain Jonathan Archer: ...I got shot in the leg. Just before I passed out, I remember thinking, "This isn't what I signed up for. I should be mapping star clusters or... making first contact with friendly species." But when those Suliban started firing at my crew... I knew I didn't have any choice but to fight back. I'm not ashamed to admit I was nervous. I'm nervous now. But I know... we can do this.

Seven Samurai in Space
20 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yep, after the first 15 minutes of the episode I knew it was going to be a Seven Samurai in space. If you seen the movie then save your time from watching this episode. The plot's the same as half of Voyager's episodes - people in trouble how can we help the other half - Gilligan's Island. I'll admit I rarely watched Voyager because when your first enemy has interstellar space travel but can't make water? Need I say more. I think "Marauders" epitomizes why Enterprise was canceled and I started to tune out. The writers and people in control of the show didn't care. As proof look at Battlestar Galactica it didn't need a couple seasons to find it's legs and it's written from a former Star Trek:TNG writer. Through re-runs on Sci-fi channel I have watched season 4 episodes and overall it had the best episodes of Enterprise unfortunately it was too little too late.
