Trivia

The Enterprise's sister ship (the NX-02, seen under construction in the episode "The Expanse") was finally given a name, Columbia, towards the end of the third season. The ship was named after the space shuttle Columbia, in honor of its late crew. This leads some to speculate that all NX-class ships will be named after space shuttles, because this is actually also the order in which the orbiter fleet was built. Enterprise came first, as a test vehicle not flown in space, then Columbia. In the order they were produced, the orbital vehicles (popularly known as spaceshuttles) made after the first two were Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis, and Endeavour (built to replace the loss of the Challenger). With NX-01being Enterprise, NX-02 Columbia, it is within reason that NX-03 will be Challenger, NX-04 Discovery, NX-05 Atlantis, and NX-06 Endeavour. See more »

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

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.

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.
