Storyline

Human curiosity speaks louder than Vulcan logic. Despite T'Pol's objection, Archer sends an away team to explore an uninhabited planet before getting a full scan of its unique properties. When nightfall arrives, the away team seeks shelter from a storm in a nearby cave. Panic and anxiety strike the team when a pollen brings on hallucinations of a life-form in the cave. Tucker's preconceptions of Vulcans are intensified when his delusions convince him T'Pol, in league with the "rock people," intend to kill him and his human crew-mates. Written by Meribor

Goofs

When Trip is shouting at T'Pol in the cave, all of his lines echo except one, which not only sounds different but is missing the echo (because it was re-dubbed in post-production). See more »

Protocol and Impulsiveness
31 October 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Enterprise locates an uninhabited planet very similar to Earth. T'Pol advises to scan the planet along six or seven days for a cautious approach, following the Vulcan protocols. However, the impulsiveness of Captain Jonathan Archer sends T'Pol, himself, Ensign Travis Mayweather, Commander Tucker, Crewman Ethan Novakovich and the entomologist Crewman Elizabeth Cutler to explore the planet. They find a nice and calm place and when nightfall arrives, the team asks to spend the night in the planet, and Captain Archer returns to Enterprise alone. There is a windstorm and the group seeks shelter in a cave, leaving their tents. Along the night, the group sees people hidden in the rocks, Ethan becomes insane and Tucker believes T'Pol is a traitor. The Enterprise rescues Ethan and Dr. Phlox finds that the pollen of the flowers contains the psychotropic compound Tropolisine, a toxin that provokes hallucination, and T'Pol and the team are in danger.

In "Strange New World", again the sensate and wise advices of T'Pol are disregarded by the impulsive Captain Archer, jeopardizing the exploration team in the planet. The story is tense, with a deranged Trip threatening T'Pol, who remains calm in spite of being also affected by the pollen. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Explorar Novos Mundos" ("Explore New Worlds")
