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 states that he took the advanced medical course at the academy and learned that hair and nails continue to grow long after death. This old wives tale has long been disproved. It originates from the fact that tissues contract after death, not that growth continues. See more »


Lt. Reed: Does that sound modulated enough for you?
Commander Tucker: Modulated?
Lt. Reed: The radio! Or is it just the galaxy, giggling at us again?
Commander Tucker: It can giggle all it wants. But the galaxy's not gettin' any of our bourbon.

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.
