Trivia

At the end of the second season (May 2003), Paramount announced that "Enterprise" would undergo a major "redirection" in hopes of boosting ratings. The new 9/11-influenced story arc included a revival of the "Starfleet Marine Corps" idea, in the form of the Military Assault Command Operations personnel, called MACOs. (pronounced like the shark in dialog). Major cosmetic changes for T'Pol (including a new hairstyle and wardrobe, and the introduction of more emotion into her character) and a revised version of the controversial theme song were also introduced.

Goofs

When the canyon left by the Xindi weapon is seen in Florida it only has a small amount of water in it. The bottom would be below sea level and as the canyon extends to the ocean it would be full of sea water. See more »

Quotes

Vulcan Ambassador Soval: Do you know where these coordinates he gave you are?
Capt. Jonathan Archer: At warp five, about a three-month trip.
Vulcan Ambassador Soval: They're inside the Delphic Expanse.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: What's that?
Vulcan Ambassador Soval: A region of space, nearly 2,000 light years across. Vulcan ships have entered it, but only a few have returned.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: Sounds like you're talking about the Bermuda Triangle.

Full of Action Episode
28 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

An unknown alien probe cuts a slice of 4,000 km length from Florida to Venezuela, killing seven million people. The Enterprise is ordered by Admiral Forrest to return to Earth, but Captain Archer is abducted by Silik with the intention to give a message of an emissary from the future. He tells Archer that the Xindi , from the mysterious and dangerous Delphic Expanse, are preparing to attack Earth. Archer succeeds to convince the Starfleet to enhance the Enterprise and let him travel to the Delphic Expanse, under the protest of the Vulcans. Meanwhile Trip grieves the death of his sister Elizabeth, while The Klingon Captain Duras pursues the Enterprise with the intention of capturing Archer.

"The Expanse" is a full of action episode, but not totally original. I am curious about how the physics laws work in the spot based on the advice of Sival. T'Pol quits her commission with the Vulcan High Command to follow with the Enterprise, showing a great loyalty to Captain Archer. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Expansão" ("The Expansion")
