Did You Know?


The Xindi-Reptilian uniforms were actually Reman costumes from Star Trek Nemesis with metal coils added to the shoulders. See more »


Given the density of liquid platinum (19.77g/cm^3) the price for Archer's visit to the Xindi laborer weighed over 25 pounds and (at the cost of platinum in 2003, when the episode was filmed) worth over $190,000. Judging from the ease with which he was able to lift the container and wave it around, it seemed a lot lighter. Furthermore, the melting point of platinum is over 3,000°F, which would make a container of liquid platinum hot to hold. See more »


[Enterprise has received a lead on a Xindi from a freighter captain]
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: With all due respect, sir, we should approach with caution. The freighter captain was of... questionable character.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Where are we, Malcolm?
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Sir?
Captain Jonathan Archer: This room, what did it use to be?
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: A s-storage bay, sir. Conduit housings, I believe.
Captain Jonathan Archer: But it got retrofitted. Starfleet went to a lot of trouble to turn it into our new command center. Why is that, Malcolm?
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Because of our mission, sir.
Captain Jonathan Archer: To find the Xindi, right?
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Right.

Kidnapped Again
29 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After six weeks in the Delphic Expanse with minor anomalies in the laws of physics taking place in cargo hold no. 2, the Enterprise receives a hint of a captain of a freighter that they should find a Xindi working in the mines of a nearby planet. Captain Archer accepts the fees of half liter of liquid platinum charged by the foreman to interview the Xindi worker. However, Trip and he are betrayed by the alien foreman and abducted in the mines. Meanwhile, a council of aliens is discussing the destiny of the Enterprise.

In this full of action episode, Archer is kidnapped again with Trip, forcing the security team leaded by Reed and Major Hayes to rescue them. The Xindis remain as a mystery as well as the council of different species of aliens. T'Pol is wearing different costumes in this season and Jolene Blalock has another sexy scene with Trip. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Os Xindis" ("The Xindis")
