The Beginning of the Final Frontier
7 May 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Mars, the xenophobic terrorist John Frederick Paxton threatens the aliens on Earth and gives an ultimatum: they shall immediately leave the planet; otherwise he would destroy the Starfleet Headquarter with a powerful weapon that is locked on the target. The aliens question whether humans might be capable to lead their alliance process. In the Enterprise, Archer asks Reed to meets Harris that helps him giving privileged information to the invasion to the facility. Meanwhile T'Pol and Trip meet their baby and they give the name of Elizabeth; however T'Pol discovers that Elizabeth is seriously sick and needing medical assistance. Gannet discloses to Travis that she is a secret agent from the Starfleet Intelligence and she is assigned to find a Terra Prime operative that is working undercover in Enterprise.

"Terra Prime" is a good conclusion of "Demons". The guest star Peter Weller performs a contradictory villain. The best part of the episode is the relationship among T'Pol, Trip and Elizabeth. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Terra Prime"
