Analyzing the data brought back by Trip and Reed, T'Pol discovers the marauder is being remote controlled by a telepresence. She believes Enterprise is capable of making their own unit, which can disrupt the controls, but a strong telepath is needed. T'Pol and Phlox also discover the pilot was Andorian. The Andorians find out the bio pattern is that of an Aenar, a highly telepathic ice-dwelling subspecies. Archer and Shran descend to the surface of Andoria to visit their compound. Meanwhile Senator Vrax is starting to lose face. Admiral Valdore is convinced things can be still turned around. He plans to destroy Enterprise with two drones, both controlled by their pilot. On Enterprise Trip seems to be distracted at work. He's having trouble adjusting to the new situation with T'Pol. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Dr. Phlox: Commander - she's doing her job.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: She's gonna hurt herself.
Dr. Phlox: Take my advice. Don't interfere.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: I can't believe I'm getting this from you now. Or has everyone on this ship got crazy?
Dr. Phlox: Not everyone.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Oh, I'm crazy.
Dr. Phlox: It's not your fault. As far as I know, there are no species in the galaxy that mastered the art of mixing, er... romance and vocation.

An excellent conclusion to the Romulan trilogy.
30 May 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Late in the life of "Star Trek: Enterprise", the writers came up with three fabulous and exciting episodes involving the Romulans trying to destabilize the quadrant and prevent alliances between the Andorians and Tellurites. However, Enterprise is able to determine that some sort of drone is sowing discord--as it can imitate other ships and the recent attacks on an Andorian ship was NOT done by the Tellurites but this drone!

This particular episode brings the crew to a remote frozen location to look for any of the Aenar--a subspecies of Andorians who apparently are the ones piloting the evil drone for the Romulans. It's odd, as the Aenar are a peaceful, blind race and you wonder why any of them would kill for these Romulans.

Overall, this is a fine conclusion to the trilogy. It's well written, exciting and well worth seeing. Plus, I like ANY show featuring Shran!
