This episode originally developed from an unused ending for Star Trek: Enterprise: Judgment (2003), which involved Enterprise attempting to intercept a prison ship which Archer was aboard and rescue him from that vessel. See more »


[the Nausicaan is replacing Tucker's restraints]
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Is this really necessary? I just saved your skin and you still don't trust me. Do you know how much power flows through those plasma circuits?
Zoumas: [interjecting] How much?
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: A lot. I could have been electrocuted. Hell, the least you could do is say 'thanks'.
Nausicaan: [sneering] Thanks.
[walks away]
Zoumas: That was nice. It reminds me of the time I was on...
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Shut up!

Rebellion in the Prison Carrier
20 January 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The Enterprise locates the shuttlepod one wandering in the space and Captain Archer and Trip missing. T'Pol finds that they have been mistakenly assumed smugglers by a patrol ship while returning from a visit from a trade post at the planet K'et Enol, arrested and set to the penal colony Canamar. A government representative comes to the Enterprise and travels with the crew to release Archer and Trip and avoid other misunderstandings. However, the prisoner Kuroda and his Nausican partner escape from their handcuffs, dominate the guards and take control of the ship.

"Canamar" is a predictable and unoriginal episode, without anything special. Archer uses his intelligence to lure the criminal and control the situation, while the poor Trip has to hear the experiences of the annoying alien. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Canamar"
