Pilot (as Scott Allen Rinker)


The Romulan chameleon ship changes its appearance to that of Enterprise and destroys a Rigellian ship. It's becoming more and more clear they are trying to destabilize the region and captain Archer is determined to find it. T'Pol suggests creating a network of 128 ships. Since the Vulcans can't send enough ships, Archer must convince the Tellarites and Andorians to cooperate. It will be hard, especially Shran seems really upset that his partner Talas has been injured. Meanwhile Trip and Reed try to disable the ship from the inside. They are up against the Romulans controlling the ship, who do everything in their power to stop them. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Did You Know?


One of the Romulans who remotely controls of the camouflage ship is Admiral Valdore. He shares the same name as Commander Donatra's warbird Valdore from Star Trek: Nemesis (2002). It is likely that the warbird was named in honor of the Admiral. See more »


The Romulan Admiral Valdore tells Trip the radiation will kill him in 7 minutes. Given the very limited Romulan/Human contact to this point it is unlikely that Valdore would know how much radiation humans could tolerate. See more »

Good, but I preferred part one.
30 May 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Very late in the life of "Star Trek: Enterprise" came a wonderful plot idea that make up three very memorable episodes. Part one involves attacks that exacerbate tensions between the Tellurites and Andorians. Here in part two, Malcolm and Trip go on a mission to figure out who is responsible--and they manage to sneak aboard a ship that can imitate other ships! In other words, Romulans are using this strange drone to sow anger and war because they want to destabilize the quadrant. Instead, they manage to unify these enemies because they eventually realize that they are being manipulated.

I liked this plot quite a bit. However, there was a plot involving a debt of honor and a fight to the death that seemed unnecessary and, perhaps, only there to fill out the episode. Still, the show keeps your interest and the Romulans are, as always, enjoyably bad and devious.
