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

The Most Ambiguous and One of the Best Episodes of the Series
5 February 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While the Enterprise is under a wave of anomalies, T'Pol is wounded in a corridor and Captain Archer refuses to leave her behind, being hit by another anomaly. After the examination of Dr. Phlox, he realizes that Archer has lost his short memory since his brain has been infected by alien parasites from another space-time. Twelve years later, T'Pol tells Archer again how he lost his commission in Enterprise and the Xindis had destroyed Earth and the human race. Meanwhile, Dr. Phlox pays a visit to the colony where they are living to tell him that he should return to the Enterprise for a possible new-developed treatment that may destroy the parasites.

"Twilight" is the most ambiguous and one of the best episodes of the series. The original and engaging screenplay with an the open conclusion is magnificent, with great performances. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Futuro Incerto" ("Uncertain Future")
