Storyline

While the weapon is in control of the Reptilians and Insectoids, they still can't launch it. Three species must give their codes and the Reptilian commander Dolim forces the kidnapped Hoshi to decipher the code of the Aquatics. The Primates, Arboreals and Archer think of a plan to stop the weapon. They see only one option: to convince the Aquatics to join their cause with their powerful ships. Archer makes an emotional plea to their two council members. Trip and T'Pol try to find a way to destroy Sphere 41, which might be the hub holding the system intact. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Captain Jonathan Archer: Any word?
Xindi-Primate Councilor: It's only been three hours. The Council once needed to resolve a simple logistical matter. It took the Aquatics six days to agree to attend the meeting.
Captain Jonathan Archer: I'm surprised you were ever able to get anything done.

The Battle Begins
4 March 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The Reptilian forces Hoshi through brainwash to decipher the code of the Aquatics and activate the weapon with the Insectoids and their own codes. Archer manages to convince the Aquatics to help them against the Reptilian, promising to help them to destroy the sphere system in the Expanse. The Humanoids, the Arboreals and the Aquatics join the Enterprise and they battle against the Reptilian and Insectoids. Meanwhile Major Hayes and his team are beamed to the Reptilian vessel where Hoshi is imprisoned. When the enemy is near to be defeated, the Sphere-Builders cause a strong anomaly destroying many ships and allowing the Reptilian to escape through a vortex.

"Countdown" is another engaging episode, with a great star battle and dramatic fate of important characters. The saga of the Enterprise in the expanse seems to be near to the end with many casualties. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Contagem Regressiva" ("Countdown")
