Enterprise answers the distress call of a Triannon ship. After taking them on board, D'Jamat, their leader, tells they are religious people visiting a sphere. They believe the Expanse, the Chosen Realm, and the Spheres were created by the Makers a 1000 years ago and that the anomalies are their breath. It soon becomes clear that these people don't have the best intentions. They take control of Enterprise and want to use it in the war against heretics. D'Jamat also orders the death of one crew member because Enterprise desecrated several spheres. Archer must choose. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Did You Know?


The plot shares several elements with the Original Series episode "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield". See more »


D'Jamat learns the history of Archer's mission by reading the Enterprise computer files. The files are written in English, a language with presumably no correlation to the written language of D'Jamat's people. While the Universal Translator lets someone understand unfamiliar speech, it cannot teach someone how to read. See more »

Religious Fanaticism
10 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

After receiving a distress call from a Triannon ship, the Enterprise welcomes on board a group of religious followers leaded by the zealot D'Jamat. They call the Delphic Expanse of Chosen Realm and that the spheres were created one thousand year ago by the Makers along nine days. When the security team relaxes, the fanatics take control of the Enterprise using biological explosives that transform each one of them in a bomb-man or woman. D'Jamat plans to use the Enterprise to destroy the population considered heretic in his planet, but he finds the fate of their intolerance when he returns to Triannon.

"Chosen Realm" is a tense episode with no originality that explores the religious fanaticism but has an excellent anti-war conclusion. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Reino Escolhido" ("Chosen Realm")
