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

One of the Best episodes of the series
18 February 2009 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

"Twilight" is without a doubt one of the best episodes of Enterprise. It is an engaging story that is wonderfully directed by Robert Duncan McNeill of Star Trek Voyager fame.

The plot deals with an anomaly hitting Enterprise and knocking Archer unconscious while at the same time infecting him with some kind of parasite. While at first it might seem like a relatively simple plot for an episode the writers take this idea and effectively turn it into some sort of alternate future where Archer's mission to stop the Xindi fails. It is very interesting to see how a relatively small idea can be expanded into a really ambitious episode. It is basically a story with heart, guts and a really big punch. The writers did their job well for this episode.
