Did You Know?


This episode serves as a prequel of sorts to Star Trek: The Original Series: Journey to Babel (1967). See more »


The actor who plays Talas in parts of the fight scene is clearly a stunt double with much larger breasts than actor Molly Brink's. When Talas first emerges from her quarters, she is wearing a leotard top that completely covers her breasts, and there is no cleavage. During parts of the fight, her breasts are suddenly quite large and spill out of the top, creating deep cleavage. Later in the fight, her breasts are small again. See more »

This is what I've wanted from Enterprise all along
12 December 2020 | by snoozejoncSee all my reviews

Enterprise is assigned to carry Tellarites to the Babel peace summit.

Finally Enterprise gives the kind of story I've been waiting four series to watch and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

If you are a fan of the original series and like continuity within the franchise, this episode is an example of Enterprise delivering it in a compelling way. The plot isn't anything original but it does have a superb reveal that comes at the end.

All performances are solid and the main characters all have plenty to do. Even Hoshi has a cool moment. Tellarite Gral and Andorian Shran both give great contributions and Lee Arenberg and Jeffery Coombs do not disappoint.

The action and effects all work superbly to make this not just an engaging story but also a pretty decent thrill ride. This is the most satisfied I've been at the end of an Enterprise episode and hope the following parts of the trilogy carry on the good work done on Babel One.
