Convincing the Xindi Council

Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
4 March 2008

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The Enterprise arrives for the meeting with the Xindi Council ahead of the schedule and Archer with the support of Hoshi explains the true intention of the Sphere Builders, telling also that the humans and Xindi should be allied against the trans-dimensional beings. The Council split, with the Humanoids and Arboreals accepting the evidences, the Reptilians and Insectoids denying them and the other Xindi absolutely neutral and expecting conclusive evidences. Meanwhile T'Pol travels with Trip, Reed and Corporal Hawkins trying to get the memory core from a key sphere. The Reptilians have a secret meeting with the liaison of the Sphere Builders that promises a leadership position among the Xindi if they succeed to deploy the weapon on Earth.

"The Council" is one of the best episodes of the Fourth Season of Enterprise. Now Archer succeeds in his diplomatic task of convincing the Xindi that humans are not the menace to their races, and the attitude of the Reptilians gives the necessary support to his speech. The very last scene with Hoshi being abducted by the Reptilian is a promise of another excellent sequel to the saga of the Enterprise in the Expanse. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Conselho" ("The Council")

Talking with the Reptilians and Insectoids is like trying to talk to your cat!

Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

In this episode, Archer finally gets to meet with the Xindi Council- -somethings fans have been waiting to see for many episodes. However, Archer is having an awful time convincing them because the Insectoids and Reptilians seem extremely emotional and difficult to convince. In fact, they seem a bit irrational. So, in case things don't go well, a mission goes by shuttle to try to enter one of the spheres in order to determine how to disable them.

This episode is very exciting and offers lots of surprises and lots of action. Folks get killed, the council breaks apart into pieces and the episode ramps up towards a huge finale. As I mentioned before, this and the previous several episodes all seem like one very, very long movie and you'll need to watch a bit more to see how it all ends.
