Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): 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 »
Ensign Hoshi Sato:You don't think I belong on Enterprise, do you?
Sub-Commander T'Pol:On the contrary. It would be a great loss to Starfleet if you were not a part of this crew. If you feel I've been unfair to you, I apologize. But I hold you to a high standard, Ensign, because I know you're capable of achieving it.

Now this is certainly an unusual first contact!, 24 March 2015
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

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.
