Did You Know?


As possible species he and Reed could be running into, Tucker names the Vulcans, Klingons, Suliban, Andorians and Xyrillians. Those are all the (warp-capable) species Enterprise has encountered on several occasions during its mission so far, and had extended - and for Tucker possibly more memorable - contact with.

Trip and Reed turn down the heat to conserve energy yet they leave the artificial gravity running. Generating a gravity field without planetary mass would require a very large amount of energy, many times that required for heat. See more »


Lt. Reed: I lost nearly everyone I cared about on that ship. Those girls I talked about - Rochelle, Deborah, Caitlin - none of them worked out, because I could... never get very close to them. Never got very close to my family either, for that matter. Not that it's any business of yours. But with the crew of the Enterprise it was different. I was really starting to feel... comfortable with them. And now the only one that's left thinks I'm the bloody Angel of Death.

The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship
11 August 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of my favourites, not only of "Enterprise", but out of all the Star Trek series. It is what can be labeled an 'elevator episode'; one in which the action takes place in a fairly limited area to cut back on costs. But this fact does not detract from it, rather it ensures that more emphasis is placed on the characters and their development.

This episode is very much character driven and really progresses both Trip and Malcom's characters individually, but also helps shape their friendship for the remainder of the series. The episode does not rely on fancy special effects or superfluous action sequences to maintain viewer interest but on the connection that is formed between two people when they face a threatening and stressful situation together. I feel that it is in this episode that Trip and Malcom's friendship first starts.
