More to come....
21 March 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

A theme that is recurring on "Star Trek: Enterprise" is about some temporal jerks who bounce back in time in order to screw with history. This is how the episode begins--as you see one of the Suliban agents is being sent on some sort of mission there.

Enterprise encounters a ship and the captain of this vessel is very funny--this and the make-up job make this minor character a treat. Anyway, he's transporting some pilgrims and Enterprise decides to tag along. During this trip, Archer invites these pilgrims aboard the ship--and they are given way too much freedom of movement as once again the humans are just way too trusting (like a ship manned by puppies!). Not surprisingly, one is a Suliban in disguise. What IS surprising is that a crew member comes to Archer to tell him he's not really a part of the crew but a time cop!! So who do they believe and what do they do?!

This is a decent episode as I grew to enjoy the temporal cop episodes through the course of the shows. However, the ending might disappoint some, as it really doesn't answer very many questions, so you'll just have to keep watching.
