Episode cast overview:
The Wraith


Lieutenant Reed discovers a rogue planet, which has broken out of orbit and therefore is devoid of any light. Life is still possible in some places because heat is bubbling up from under the surface, but T'Pol doesn't detect any humanoid life. Further scans however give a strange energy reading which seems to be coming from a ship on the surface. After the crew has landed, they encounter the Eska. The Eska come from another planet and they say they are hunting for the drayjin, an animal considered a delicacy. When captain Jonathan Archer tries to sleep on the planet, he hears a voice calling him by his name. A human female is wandering in the forest. Somehow he seems to know her.

The Song of the Wandering Angus
28 November 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Enterprise finds an errant planet without humanoid life form with a vessel landed in a rain-forest. Archer, T'Pol, Trip, Malcolm and Hoshi take the Shuttlepod to explore and investigate the spot and they meet the Eska hunters Buzaan, Shiraht and Damrus that welcome the group in their camping area. They explain that they are chasing Drayjins, which meat is delicious, in a practice that has been adopted by their people for generations and they call the planet Dakala. They have not been detected by the sensors because they use camouflage to be protected and kill the aggressive shape-shifters wraths that leave a chemical signature when they are afraid. Along the night, Captain Archer hears a woman voice telling him that he needs to understand, and when he follows the voice, he sees a beautiful woman not totally strange for him wandering in the woods.

"Rogue Planet" has an original story surprisingly without villains. In one side, the amicable group of hunters that practice the sport for generations in a wild planet, and in the other side, an intelligent life-form. Captain Archer recalls his childhood and uses his feelings to find with Dr. Phlox a masking agent to keep the wraiths safe. My vote is eight.
