Storyline

A group of Kreetassans are on board of Enterprise for a friendly meeting. But they leave rather unexpectedly as they seem very offended by something. The crew have no idea what however. But as their ship leaves an alien gel like creature manages to crawl aboard. The creature is growing and growing and shows rather hostile tendencies as it encapsulates five crew members, including captain Archer and commander Tucker. T'Pol, Hoshi and Reed have to come up with a solution quickly. The lives of the five are at stake as the creature begins a symbiotic relationship that in time can't be reversed. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Goofs

When examining the part of the creature severed by the door, which is still alive, Dr. Phlox compares it to an earthworm. It is a misconception that if an earthworm is cut in half, both parts will survive. There is a chance the head section may survive, however, the tail end will die. See more »

Quotes

Ensign Hoshi Sato: 'Hwajat', their word for 'eat'...
Ensign Travis Mayweather: What about it?
Ensign Hoshi Sato: With emphasis on the first syllable, *hwa*-jat, it means 'to mate'.
Ensign Travis Mayweather: I can see how that might cause some confusion over dinner.

Now this is certainly an unusual first contact!
24 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins with the Kreetassans becoming VERY offended at something the humans did during their meeting. However, instead of telling everyone what offended them, they stomp off the ship and it seems like a first contact experience with these folks blew up in their faces...but why?! Well, another first contact experience occurs soon after this--and it goes even worse!! Some weird tentacled creature is hiding in the ship--and it soon grabs several crew members (including the Captain and Trip) and holds them captive. What the creature is, what its intentions are and the fates of the crew entangled within it are all uncertain. So, it's up to the Doctor, Reed and Hoshi to figure out what to do.

The episode is awfully good because it it such a weird and unusual creature and I appreciate that. Too often, the aliens all are bipedal humanoids, so having something 100% different is a great idea. Well worth seeing.
