Storyline

Enterprise answers a distress call of a Retellian cargo ship. The crew, Goff and Plinn, tell they have a problem with a stasis pod that apparently carries a passenger. While both Retellians enjoy Enterprise' facilities, Trip tries to repair the pod which contains a beautiful woman. Then suddenly the woman wakes up. She seems to choke and Trip opens the pod, only to be knocked out by the quickly returned Goff. He escapes with his ship from Enterprise, leaving Plinn behind. The woman introduces herself as Kaitaama, heir apparent to the throne of Krios, and she suspects she's being held for ransom. Trip thinks of a plan to escape. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Fairly standard ST:E episode. Decent story and script, but predictable and unchallenging
25 February 2007 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

Trip Tucker is the protagonist in this episode and while the episode may have been intended as something of a character study for him, we don't really learn anything new about him through this.

Paadma Lakshi plays the precious cargo - a princess in a stasis pod being transported by pair of questionable individuals. Since she looks more human than the aliens who are transported, it should be no surprise that she is one of the 'good guys'. The aliens are not particularly bright and do not appear to be possessed of completely developed personalities.

Though the script and story are a little better than usual for this series, the plot is almost completely predictable and Ms Lakshi's acting is actually below the franchise standard. Altogether average episode.
