Storyline

With T'Pol and Trip hostage, John Frederick Paxton demands that all aliens leave the solar system or else he will destroy Starfleet Headquarters. With that warning and the clock counting, Starfleet orders Archer and the Enterprise to Mars to take out the weapon threatening Earth. Meanwhile, the cloned baby of T'Pol and Trip is getting sicker and time is running out for her as well. Imprisoned, Gannet Brooks reveals to Travis that she is a secret member of Starfleet Intelligence. She has been assigned to find a Terra Prime operative working undercover on the Enterprise. With the clock ticking, the future of the planned Federation lies in the balance. Written by timdalton007

Quotes

John Frederick Paxton: That child is a cross-breed freak. How many generations before our genome is so diluted that the word 'Human' is nothing more than a footnote in some medical text? The same thing could happen to your people. Or don't you care about that?
Commander T'Pol: Neither of our species is what it was a million years ago, nor what it'll become in the future. Life is change.
John Frederick Paxton: Change in this case means extinction. And I, for one, will not let that baby bring Humanity to that point.

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"
