Gareb (as Scott Allen Rinker)


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)

The Romulans Are Enterprising
30 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent concluding episode to this Romulan trilogy. All through the Star Trek epic, the Romulans seem to be the most humorless, the most intractable of all species. With the exception of the Borg, which is a mass entity, these guys take no prisoners and listen to no one. They are rooted in Vulcan ancestry and have tremendous technology and the power of evil. In this final episode they are using a subspecies of Andorean who has telepathic powers. They've hooked him up to a machine and he controls drones that can take on the appearance of other ships. Archer and Shran go to Adorea and visit a pacifistic people that live in the northern ice. It is a fascinating world. It turns out that the controller is the brother of one of the aliens and she decides to accompany the pair to the Enterprise. The conclusion is excellent and takes us to other levels of science fiction. And, of course, we will be hearing more from the Romulans.
