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)

Teaching Wrong History
6 February 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Archer, T'Pol and Trip visit a planet with six thousand humans still living in the Wild West style and one thousand Skagaraans living marginally. They disclose that humans had been abducted three hundred years ago to slave work, but they have reverted the situation and killed most of the Skags. The alien survivors presently does not have right to education and they a loathed by most of the population. When Archer and the teacher Bethany are arrested for teaching Skags, he decides to interfere in the society.

"North Star" is so far the most inconsistent and the worst episode of this Third Season. The story is not original, and Archer violates the principle of not interfering in other societies. Further, the writer shamefully forgets the "Father of Aviation" Alberto Santos-Dumont, the first man to build and fly experimental aircraft, giving the credit to the Wright Brothers. Maybe a side effect of the Delphic Expanse. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Estrela Polar" ("North Star")
