Well acted, but not a particularly compelling story
20 October 2020 | by snoozejoncSee all my reviews

Archer and T'Pol time travel back to Detroit in 2004 to intercept some time-travelling Xindi terrorists.

The story was well paced, but didn't grip me enough to think anything bad was ever in danger of happening. It has some decent moments, which come mainly from good acting by the cast and also T'Pol's interaction with a drive through fast food restaurant, but it doesn't work for me as a concept or in the way the story unfolds.

The idea of the Xindi collecting human blood is good, but the time travel element feels to me feels half-baked. If they have the means to time travel why choose this time and if things go wrong why not just time travel again? In fact why not just time travel back to the dawn of man and kill all humans before they even develop the wheel? Also, the Xindi looked menacing when they boarded the Enterprise and did so much damage in a previous episode, but in a warehouse and on a rooftop in Detroit they look as convincing as a man in a rubber suit from 50s or 60s sci-fi.

Archer goes full Jack Bauer in this one, even looking like him during his mild torture session with Leland Orser's character. I found this to be a bit of a distraction.

It does advance the overarching season plot, so it is worth watching for continuity and I did like the John Carpenter references.
