Storyline

Enterprise is hit with a rather intense anomaly. Refusing to leave an injured T'Pol behind, Archer is struck by the anomaly, leaving his brain infected with parasites, preventing him from making any new memories. Fast-forward 12 years. T'Pol has been caring for Archer since his affliction. As she does every day, T'Pol catches Archer up on the past 12 years, knowing he will forget everything within hours. She was in command of Enterprise after his injury, that the parasites live outside normal space-time and usual remedies never worked, that the Xindi were successful, and managed to destroy Earth and kill all but 6,000 humans. But today is special; Dr. Phlox is ready to give Archer the treatment he has been developing for ten years, which must be performed on Enterprise. Written by Meribor

Archer as Billy Pilgrim
29 September 2007 | by (Vulcan) – See all my reviews

Twilight is an important episode in the evolution of Captain Archer and T'Pol's characters. However, it is unclear, throughout most of the episode whether any part of what we are seeing is actually happening. This ambiguity is a big part of the plot, but it almost feels as if the writers wanted to experiment around with a few new ideas but wanted the option to take them back if they interfered with the series' arcs or overall development.

Most of the episode involves what MIGHT be an alternative future where extra-dimensional bacteria associated with the anomalies in the expanse have infected Archer's brain and he has either become extremely delusional or he has lost his anchor in his own time as well as his ability to create new memories.

Although cleverly plotted, there are quite a few logical inconsistencies in the story - but these depend upon which of the alternative explanations hold. And, to avoid a spoiler, I can say no more.

Acting - terrific. Cinematography and Directing (by Tom Paris!) - good. Script - better than average for Enterprise.

Worth a careful viewing.
