Episode cast overview, first billed only:
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 (

Parts 1 and 2 were unfortunately weak...what about the finale?
14 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The Dr. Soong trilogy from "Star Trek: Enterprise" had a lot of promise. Too bad that plot problems make parts 1 and 2 pretty clichéd and annoying. Is this third, and final, episode any better?

Unfortunately, episode three is also filled with odd plot holes which should have been filled. First, the stolen Klingon ship is full of evil, psychotic super-humans who have already murdered and show a STRONG desire to rule the galaxy--and Enterprise has a chance to blow up the ship, they contact these augments and let them take the first shot?! Second, when they are just about to blow up the augment's stolen ship, the augments panic and throw a prisoner onto an escape pod and jettison it--and Enterprise abandons their mission to save the single person in the pod--allowing the psychos to escape! All in all, the humans seem like real potato-heads when dealing with this super- serious threat to mankind. And what is the result? Yup, Malik takes control of the ship away from Soong and plans on a little genocide--releasing a deadly planet-killing virus onto a Klingon colony in order to provoke galactic war! Hello, Captain Archer...think maybe you should have killed these freaks when you had a chance?!?!

On the positive side, lovers of "Paradise Lost" will appreciate the ending! Otherwise a neat idea hindered by indifferent writing.
