Trivia

The first appearance of photon torpedoes in the series. Up until then, Enterprise fired spatial or conventional torpedoes, which are essentially missiles that are launched at sub-lightspeed, whereas photon torpedoes have an antimatter warhead and can be fired at lightspeed. See more »

Goofs

When the Enterprise first comes into Earth orbit we can see the swath as a black line starting in Florida (a little west of Lake Okeechobee south to Everglades National Park and across the Keys). Cuba is covered by a cloud in the shot, but we saw it hit at the start. Following a straight path, the black swath clearly ends by going through Panama (east of Panama City), not Venezuela as stated. And, no, that's not the canal, it's west of Panama City. See more »

Quotes

Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: I can't wait to get in there, Captain - find the people who did this. And tell me we won't be tiptoeing around. None of that non-interference crap T'Pol's always shoving down our throats. Maybe it's a good thing she's leaving.
Capt. Jonathan Archer: We'll do what we have to, Trip... Whatever it takes.

Is nothing sacred?! The Xindi destroy Disney World!!!
29 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When this episode begins, a probe arrives and blows a huge swath from Florida to Venezuela--destroying Disney World and millions of people! Naturally Starfleet is Not pleased and want Archer to return to Earth to discuss the situation. As for Archer, he's got a lot to tell them-- such as the ship being attacked by Klingons (they just won't give up) and a meeting with the Suliban and their shadowy boss. In this meeting, he is told that a race from beyond the Delphic Explanse called the Xindi are responsible. So, eventually the Enterprise heads out on a many months' voyage to find these folks--but yet again the Klingons are lying in wait for Enterprise!!

This episode introduces a huge story arc which will be taking up much of season three--and which marks a definite improvement in the show. Because of this, it's imperative that you see this excellent, exciting and well written show.
