Storyline

Hoshi and Trip are investigating some abandoned ruins when suddenly two storms charged with polaric energy are moving in their direction. There's no time to move back to Enterprise with the shuttle and they are forced to use the transporter. After apparently everything went well with the device, Hoshi starts feeling weird. She thinks a birthmark has moved a centimeter and when water seems to be dropping through her hands, her mirror image disappears and hardly no one seems to notice her, she really gets worried. Phlox thinks it's only psychological. But when all of the sudden everybody on the ship is looking for her and she sees some aliens planting bombs, she knows there's definitely something wrong.

Disappointing Conclusion
13 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While investigating some primitive chambers of an ancient civilization, Hoshi and Trip are advised by Captain Archer to return to Enterprise due to the arrival of two storms. They have no time to use the shuttle pod and they have to be beamed to Enterprise. The reluctant Hoshi asks Trip to go first, and after his response that he arrived safe and sound, she is beamed. Hoshi feels weird and uncomfortable after using the transporter, and talks twice with Dr. Phlox about her sensation. When nobody can see Hoshi, Trip and Reed find a problem in the transporter and Dr. Phlox in her molecular examination. Later Hoshi finds two aliens installing bombs in Enterprise and she unsuccessfully tries to communicate with Captain Archer.

"Vanishing Point" is an intriguing and suspenseful episode that unfortunately has a very disappointing conclusion. I was anxious with the situation of Hoshi, and I found the resolution of the story ridiculous. It seems that the author did not know how to end a great plot. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Ponto de Fuga" ("Escape Point")
