The Enterprise stumbles into an area of space containing cloaked mines. When a malfunctioning, active mine attaches itself to a critical area of the ship's hull, Lieutenant Reed dons an EV suit and attempts to disarm it. Complications arise when the mine's leg penetrates Reed's leg, pinning him to the hull. Captian Archer must find a way to get rid of the mine and save Reed before the Romulans run out of patience.

Did You Know?


Romulans and Vulcans are directly related to each other. The Vulcan High Command would certainly know this and T'Pol was not privy to that information, which suggests that the Vulcans are even keeping information from their own people. See more »

The ending is terrible but the show is otherwise good.
25 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, Captain Archer is trying to get to know Lt. Malcolm Reed by sharing breakfast with him. However, Malcolm is a very dull guy who is obsessed with protocol (he would make a great match for T'Pol actually). Fortunately, this stiff and uncomfortable breakfast is cut short when the ship hits a mine! If this isn't bad enough, when the lieutenant tries to detach a mine which has attached itself to the ship, it also attached to him! The Captain (inexplicably) goes out himself to try to help--and the two finally get a chance to talk and get to know each other better. But it's not all fun and games, as the mine is still ready to explode AND several Romulan ships have appeared and are ready to blow up these 'spies'.

This isn't a bad episode...until the end when the mine explodes. What happens next is pretty dumb. But the good does more than make up for the bad on this one.
