The crew of a Klingon bird of prey is completely overpowered by two humans and the ship is stolen. The Klingons are not amused, a war seems unavoidable. Starfleet has a pretty good idea who might have something to do with the attack; captain Archer pays a visit to Dr. Soong, a genetic engineer. He's imprisoned because of his plans to make genetically enhanced humans, augments. Years ago Dr. Arik Soong kidnapped embryos and raised them ten years before he was captured. No one ever knows what happened to them, until now. They're responsible for the attack. Archer takes Soong to stop them and prevent a war. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Data's Dad
28 March 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There is no end to the problems that show up for Enterprise. Arik Soong (Brent Spiner) is the mega-geneticist who has caused untold destruction in the universe. Millions have died because of his engineering. He is being held in prison because he is beyond genius in the most evil way. Now, some of the products of his work, augments, young people who have been given superhuman strengths and intellects, have taken their powers and are ready to become a force. They capture a Klingon war bird, killing the entire crew and jettisoning them into space. The now have the vehicle to start their destructive plans. They have the goal of being reunited with their "father" Soong. Together, they feel they can rule the universe. They have it in for earth because they were rejected by the planet in their infancy. If they have a weakness, it's an internal power struggle. They still have the weaknesses of jealousy and arrogance.
