T'Pol researches the data that Trip and Reed got from the Drone and
finds that the ship is telepathically controlled by an Andorian. Shran
receives the analysis from Andor and informs that a highly telepathic
but pacific subspecies called Aenar is remotely controlling the
marauder. Together with Trip and Phlox, T'Pol builds a tele presence
unit to interfere with the Drone while Archer and Shran try to convince
the Aenar to help them since they need a powerful telepath to operate
the unit. They discover that the local Gared was abducted and may be
helping the Romulans; however his sister Jhamel is decided to help her
brother using the tele presence unit in Enterprise.
"The Aenar" is an excellent conclusion of a trilogy. The story is engaging, with great dialogs, and the screenplay uses a beautiful visual concept in the ice. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): "Aenar"
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
The treaty of cooperation between the Andorians and the Tellarites may
have been signed but the Marauder is still out there and presents a
danger. Analysis of the pilot's brainwaves shows that he is a member of
a secretive sub-species of Andorians known as the Aenar. The Aenar are
white-skinned, blind, live in the coldest region of Andoria and most
importantly they are telepaths. Shren and Captain Archer beam down to
their caverns but it appears that they have wasted their time as the
pacifist Aenar refuse to help. One of them however says she will help
them; she is the Sister of the Jhamel who was abducted to pilot the
Marauder. When they set off again they find themselves under attack
from two Marauders, Lissan must contact her brother and persuade him to
end the conflict.
This was a great conclusion to the three-part story; it was good to see Archer and Shren cooperating again and it was interesting to learn more about Andoria. Lissan was a good character; the scene between her and her brother was quite touching. As the episode ended it looked as if Enterprise may lose a crewmember; Trip is clearly having difficulty working with T'Pol as he still has strong feelings for her.
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 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!
