Episode cast overview:
Crewman Ethan Novakovich
Crewman (as Rey Gallegos)


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

Hello.....LISTEN to T'Pol next time, jerk-faces!
19 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode suffers from one big problem--the humans are really, really stupid! Too stupid, actually.

When the ship comes upon a planet that has a nice, breathable atmosphere, T'Pol wisely suggests caution and common sense, as it's a newly identified place and COULD prove hostile. She suggests several days of observations and tests before landing--all which seems very reasonable. However, the captain behaves like Buck Rogers and sends a landing party immediately! Naturally, it turns out to be a big mistake...a big STUPID mistake.

The idea of the planet and their LSD-like pollen was pretty cool. The idea of having everyone but T'Pol behave like a bunch of 6 year- olds wasn't. A bit weak.
