The crew of Enterprise have a meeting with the trader D'Marr. Unfortunately he is unable to provide them with valuable ores, but knows of a location where these can be obtained. He tells he found an apparently abandoned ship and tried to empty it to make a fortune. But according to D'Marr the ship is haunted and he was forced to leave. Enterprise starts looking for the ship anyway. Scans show there really aren't any bio-signs, but after coming on board the crew soon gets the feeling they are not alone. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

It's okay...
24 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins with the Captain negotiating with an alien trader. But the guy doesn't have anything they need--and they need supplies to help them run the ship. He tells them about a planet nearby where he saw a downed ship...but tells them that there are rumors that it is haunted.

When the landing party arrives at the downed ship, it does seem like maybe it IS haunted but naturally T'Pol thinks this is illogical. However, there soon is an answer--there are living beings there but they are hiding. They tell the crew of the Enterprise that they've been there for three years and they cannot make their engines work. Trip insists that he can help them but oddly they seem not particularly excited about this. Another strange problem develops, as tests indicate that the ship crashed far longer ago--perhaps 20 years or more. What gives?

This is a decent but unremarkable episode. It's not bad--but not all that memorable either...sort of like eating white bread or plain rice.
