The Augments have escaped in a bird of prey with their 'father' Dr. Arik Soong. To find out where they went, Enterprise goes to the location Soong told the Augments were raised. Someone has been left behind. The augments are on their way to Cold Station 12, where the last Augment embryos are kept. They brought incubators to grow them up. Tensions are building however between Augments leader Malik and Soong. He constantly questions the doctor's leadership and disagrees with about every decision made by him. He thinks it is nonsense that Soong orders that no human life should be taken on the station. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

Did You Know?


On the surface of Trialas IV, where Soong raised the Augments, there was a large device composed of two long glowing red tubes. This device has been seen in many places on TNG, DS9, and VOY, including, most interestingly, in Doctor Noonian Soong's lab in TNG: "Datalore". It is also seen in the control room of Cold Station 12, but with blue lights rather than red. The device was first seen in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan on the space laboratory Regula I. Aside from the Star Trek franchise, the device was also featured in Airplane II: The Sequel, where it was seen on the lunar base commanded by William Shatner's character, Buck Murdock. See more »

I have an even better idea. I'm going to place him in an easily escapable situation involving an overly elaborate and exotic death.

The above quote is from Dr. Evil in the first Austin Powers movie. It's appropriate because this was funny in a is NOT good when it's in a sci-fi drama like "Star Trek: Enterprise! This is the reason I see this as a particularly weak episode.

This is a follow-up to the prior episode where Dr. Soong has created a group of augments--humans with heightened physical and intellectual powers but lacking in conscience. In the previous one, Captain Archer STUPIDLY allowed Soong to escape custody (a major weakness in this first episode). Now in part two, Soong and his 'children' (the augments) go in search of a veritable army of augments Soong wishes to incubate. To do this, they take over a medical research station. Archer and his crew arrive but seem pathetically unable to stop them--again because Archer behaves like a wienie.

When the episode begins, the completely amoral and nasty leader of the augments has every reason to kill Archer. However, instead of just phasering his face (and he IS holding a phaser), he gives it to his bud and begins fighting with Archer. What a dumb cliché! Again, however, he could have just squished Archer's head. Instead, he beats him up and leaves him with SOME chance of Dr. Evil!! All in all this show has too many clichés and weak plot elements--and it SHOULD have been much better given the idea.
