Storyline

The crew of Enterprise is very surprised to find a planet with 6000 humans and around 1000 aliens living on it. Archer, T'Pol and Tucker start investigating. Scans show a settlement was created about 250 years ago and the people are still living a Wild West life. Archer soon finds out the aliens are called Skagaraans and the government of these Skags was overthrown many years ago by a certain Cooper Smith. There seems to be a lot of hatred towards them and they consider them lawless outcasts. Archer makes contact with Bethany, who illegally teaches the Skags in Skag Town. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Enterprise Does a Western a la X-Files
16 October 2007 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

Residents of a 19th century town straight out of a spaghetti western were abducted by aliens hundreds of years ago and brought to a planet in the expanse to serve as slave labor. By the time Archer and crew get there, they have turned the tables. The Skags (their alien abductors) live in segregated towns and are not allowed to receive an education, and vigilante bullies are permitted to run amok among them. But there is a teacher who wants to change all of this.

Noteworthy for its originality, good cinematography and acting performances, North Star is a solid entry in the Enterprise Catalog. it is also a nice stand-alone break from the Xindi story arc which dominated the 3rd season. It is also another contribution to the series' thematic examination of pre-prime directive space exploration. Fans of TOS might enjoy Archer's Jim Kirk-like approach to the problems he encounters.
