Storyline

To get to their appointment with Degra on time, Enterprise must pass a subspace corridor which is guarded by the aggressive Kovaalans. Just about to make an attempt, Enterprise is stopped by Enterprise. Their captain, Lorian, tells them crossing the subspace corridor will put Enterprise 117 years back in time and that his crew all are descendants of the original crew. He wants to make some modifications to the ship, so the time shift will not happen. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

When Trip and Lorian are working in engineering (14:30), one of the tools that Trip takes from the toolbox and puts back is actually a Radio Shack decibel (or sound level) meter. It has a short cylindrical protrusion and upper curved edges. This carries on a tradition of using Radio Shack gadgets for Star Trek props. In the original series one of the props was a Radio Shack tape head demagnetizer - having a long, thin light-up wand of clear plastic so you could see into a dark area around recessed tape heads.

Quotes

Lorian: I wasn't raised with the same inhibitions most Vulcans have. My Human side has allowed me to find a balance between emotion and logic. I've even been known to tell a joke on occasion.

Hit and miss episode for me
18 November 2020 | by snoozejoncSee all my reviews

Enterprise is due to rendezvous with Degra but ends up somewhere in a place and time where nothing seems right.

Much of the plot has been taken from previous Trek incarnations but it does work for the purpose of this episode. It starts off with an excellent and highly intriguing premise and the events unfold in a compelling and sometimes ironic way. I was thoroughly enjoying up to a point where the main guest character gets into some big expository dialogue to explain his behaviour and from then on my interest began to wane.

The concept of the guest characters was mostly good as it allowed the series regulars an interesting glimpse into a possible future. I found all this to be plausible and bought into it for most of the characters. One didn't work for me, mainly due to the dodgy makeup effects and the focus on an ongoing sub-plot and love story that has never interested me throughout the duration of the show.

When reading the reviews of others, I noticed one making a good point about time-travel being overused in sci-fi. It's a difficult one because some of the best plots involve time-travel, but the more of them you see, the more it diminishes their impact.

E² has a pretty exciting finish which did pique my attention once more towards the end. Once the reset button is eventually pushed you do suspect the overarching plot just took a detour for the sake of achieving the full number of episodes required for a series as it nears the conclusion.

I think overall it was good, but given the premise I wish it had been better. Much of this down my own personal interest in certain characters.
