Enterprise has arrived on time for the appointment with Xindi Degra. Captain Archer invites them to their ship, while he does his best to convince both Degra and Arboreal Jannar that the destruction of Earth is actually part of the grand scheme of the sphere builders to conquer the universe. While Jannar remains reluctant, Degra seems to be slightly won over. Trip Tucker is having a hard time keeping Enterprise in shape and is also having difficulties with writing a letter to the parents of crewman Taylor, informing of her death. Then trouble arises when out of the blue a Reptilian ship arrives. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Did You Know?


'Seth MacFarlane' has a brief cameo as an engineer technician in this episode. MacFarland is an avid fan of Star Wars and Star Trek and has several ties to Star Trek TNG (his favorite of the Star Trek franchise). He is a distant cousin of Denise Crosby; his series American Dad! (2005) regularly features the voice of Patrick Stewart; and many TNG characters have been featured on his animated series Family Guy (1999). This episode was directed by yet another TNG alum, LeVar Burton. See more »


At the start of the episode it is stated that the discovery of two dead crewmen accounts for all the missing crew. But during the battle we see at least three crew members ejected into space. These three would have been lost and never found (Ships sensors were out after the attack) meaning the entire crew could never be fully accounted for. See more »

Captain Jonathan Archer: We're in bad shape, I can't deny that; but we're still in one piece. Enterprise is a tough ship. She took more than anyone could ask her to and then some. And so have all of you. I wanted to say thank you. I only wish I could thank the eighteen crewmen who were lost. Like you, they understood how important our mission is, and they accepted the risks. We came into the Expanse, not knowing what we'd find, with no one to rely on but ourselves. But we're going to succeed. To accomplish...

Goodbye, Elizabeth
4 March 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Enterprises manages to arrive on the schedule for the meeting with Degra, and Captain Archer invites Degra and Jannar to come on board of the damaged Enterprise to show evidences that the Xindi are being manipulated by the trans-dimensional builders of the spheres, and Degra becomes impressed with the evidences. Meanwhile Archer assigns Trip to write a letter to the parents of crewman Jane Taylor, who died on duty during the attack of the Reptilians, while he is working hard trying to make the Enterprise operational again with a short staff. When the hostiles Reptilians threaten the Enterprise, Degra takes a surprising attitude.

The Fourth Season of Enterprise now is excellent, actually with one long story split in episodes. "The Forgotten" is dramatic, with the loss of eighteen members represented by Taylor and the reluctance of Trip in accepting Degra as an allied, superseded in the very end, when Trip accepts the loss of Taylor an Elizabeth. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Os Esquecidos" ("The Forgotten")
