Degra's Assistant


Archer is traveling in a Malosian shuttle with the Xindi Degra, constructor of the Xindi weapon. It appears Earth already has been destroyed and the attack on Earth was used as a decoy by the Insectoids to take over the power. Degra seems to be having memory loss and Archer tells him both were cell mates in an Insectoid prison. They worked together to escape from the prison, are hunted by them and are now looking for a shelter. Is Archer really telling the truth? Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Did You Know?


Degra: Do you... have a family, Captain?
Captain Jonathan Archer: [... ] I never really had an opportunity to start one. I was away from home a lot.
Degra: You should make the time. I've learned that our work, in the end, means very little. Our real legacy is the children. I would do anything to protect mine.

This story is retelling of a story that played out as a world war ll film from 1965 staring James Garner. That film involved James Garners character waking up in a hospital and being told the war was over and the allies had won. In reality Garner's character had been captured and was the center of a plot to convince him that the war was over so he would talk about the details of the yet to have happened D-Day invasion (June 4, 1944). The Germans spent a little time letting him get comfortable with the idea that it was OK to talk about the invasion since the war was over. He dodges this still uncomfortable talking about that which was so secret so recently. As time goes by he starts to notice subtle flaws in the charade the German's are attempting. Like that film in this episode a prisoner is being fooled into believing a war is over and he needs to help Archer get him back to where he belongs. While they do a very convincing job with the time constraints they were working under their prisoner caught on, but like the original that is not the end of the story. It was fun to see this done in a futuristic setting. It's still a good story. Do yourself a favor and see both versions they are both well done.
