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.

Tradition must take second place to morality.
19 March 2010 | by ( – See all my reviews

I think the other comment missed the point of this episode. There are villains in this story, the hunters who placed their enjoyment over the lives of their prey. Hunting sentient beings is so revolting I cannot believe I need to write a post to clarify the point. So what if the hunters have been doing it for generations? I am fairly certain some people used the same argument to defend slavery and fight abolition.

The conclusion of this episode was spot-on. The hunters knew what they were doing and would not be dissuaded from their blood sport. They would keep returning to the planet. The only solution, then, is to arm the inhabitants. One must not mistake practicality for morality, though.
