Storyline

The Enterprise deliberately crosses the Neutral Zone, on Kirk's orders, into Romulan space and is promptly surrounded by Romulan warships, each equipped with a "cloaking device" that renders it undetectable. Spock betrays the apparently irrational and paranoid Kirk to the Romulan commander, a woman who is obviously attracted to Spock. A deadly game between Kirk, Spock and the Romulans risks not only the Enterprise but the tenuous cease-fire between the Romulans and the Federation. Written by Tom D.

Goofs

The Enterprise crew are shocked to learn that their surprise capture may be due to a new cloaking technology possessed by the Romulans. Kirk and crew already encountered cloaked Romulans two years earlier in Star Trek: Balance of Terror. However, the cloaking technology in Star Trek: The Enterprise Incident is new because it is improved. The Enterprise was still able to track a Romulan ship, though not accurately, in Star Trek: Balance of Terror and cannot detect them at all with this improved version. See more »

Exceptionally interesting and keeps you guessing
8 December 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I really liked this episode. The plot was pretty exciting plus it gave Spock a big chance to stretch himself as a character--without McCoy or Shatner tagging along. Also, any episode with the Romulans is great fun, as they were in many ways a more dangerous and less stupid foe than the Klingons.

The episode begins with Kirk behaving very erratically. He even orders the ship into Romulan space and nearly starts a war. It seems that the Captain has gone mad and the Romulans take possession of the ship. At the same time, Spock becomes very chummy with the Romulan commander, a sexy lady who seems determined to climb into Spock's trousers. I'd like to say more, but it really would spoil the suspense. Just let me say that there is a lot more to the story than this and the show is both interesting and keeps you guessing.
