Episode cast overview:
Bu'kaH (as Michelle C. Bonilla)
Klingon Captain


Enterprise discovers a class 9 gas giant and Archer orders to take a look. A probe picks up something unusual: a ship is slowly sinking into the atmosphere and at its present rate of descent the pressure will crush the ship in about an hour. Reed and T'Pol are sent to take a shuttle pod and see what they can do for the crew of the ship. At the last moment Hoshi Sato asks to join the mission. She tells Archer she finally found her 'space legs'. After entering the alien ship, Sato quickly sees it is Klingon. The crew seems to be unconscious. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Shrewdness and Ingratitude
25 November 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While probing a gas giant Class 9, the bridge personnel of Enterprise listen to siren calls and finds a wrecked starship near to collapse due to the high external pressure. T'Pol detects live forms in the ship and together with Reed and Hoshi, they use the shuttle pod to help the alien survivors. When they reach the craft, T'Pol identifies that it is a Raptor Klingon vessel, and that their crew was attacked by a toxin and is unconscious but alive. Fearing their reaction, T'Pol recommends leaving the ship immediately, but Bu'kaH awakes, attacks Reed and hijacks the shuttle. While the vessel sinks in the atmosphere near to collapse, the group tries to identify the defect to fly with the ship again.

"Sleeping Dogs" shows the ingratitude of the Klingon and how distrustful this breed is. Further, their principle of honor is also very interesting regarding they are warriors. But Archer uses shrewdness and knowledge to accomplish his objective. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Cães Adormecidos" ("Sleeping Dogs")
