Captain Magh
Augment #1


Captain Archer is only barely able to escape a horrible death and once again the Augments have gotten away. They disappear into Klingon space. Dr. Soong decides the ship should head to an area called Briar Patch, that will be hard to detect because of radiation. There he wants to let the embryos grow up peacefully. Once again Malik completely disagrees with him. He has taken dangerous pathogens from Cold Station 12 and plans to bombard a Klingon colony, ensuring the Federation will be too busy fighting a war with the Klingons. Malik is very convinced his plan is the best. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Superior Ability Breeds Superior Ambition
19 October 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dr. Soong and the Augments heads to Briar Patch, a spot hidden by clouds of radiation in the Klingon space, to raise the embryos and Malik hides a great quantity of lethal pathogens in the Bird of Prey. Meanwhile Captain Archer, his crew and the scientists are rescued from the contaminated Cold Station 12. The scientists ask to return to disinfect the station while the Enterprise chases the Bird of Prey. When Malik discovers the pacific intentions of Dr. Soong, he leads a mutiny and imprisons his "father" in his quarters. Then he plots to bomb a Klingon colony with the pathogens to provoke a war to distract the Starfleet.

"The Augments" is a great conclusion to the story of The Augments. Brent Spiner is fantastic in the role of a dreamer and his character is finally convinced by Captain Archer that superior ability breeds superior ambition. However, he intends to dedicate the period of reclusion to develop artificial intelligence and cybernetics and certainly will be the "father" of one ancestral of Data. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Os Superiores" ("The Superiors")
