Storyline

Hoshi Sato is contacted by a 400-year-old telepathic alien exiled on planet in the Expanse, shunned by his society because of his abilities. The alien offers to use his powers to help Enterprise find the Xindi and the weapon they are building, but only if Hoshi will stay with him while he works. She agrees to stay behind, while Enterprise confirms the Expanse has a second Sphere and is on its way to investigate. Written by Meribor

Trivia

After Star Trek: The Next Generation: The High Ground (1990) which was written by Melinda M. Snodgrass and directed by Gabrielle Beaumont, this was the second episode of the "Star Trek" franchise to be completely written and directed by women, Phyllis Strong and Roxann Dawson respectively. All other "Star Trek" episodes directed by women were either written by men or co-written by a team of male and female writers. See more »

Nice combination of suspense and character development for Hoshi Sato
30 August 2007 | by mstomasoSee all my reviews

The Xindi/Abyss arc continues to build in this strong character development story featuring Linda Park as Hoshi Sato. T'Pol has discovered a new wrinkle in the Abyss - and can now predict the location of the spheres that appear to cause the time-space distortions. To test her hypothesis, the ship heads toward one of the predicted locations. As they approach it, Hoshi is contacted by a telepathic alien who can cast his consciousness dozens of light years from his physical location. It appears that this alien wants to help the Enterprise learn about the Xindi in exchange for a few days alone with Hoshi. Most of the episode centers on Hoshi's relationship with this exiled, ancient, telepath.

The episode is well-written and conceived, and very nicely directed by Roxanne Dawson. It exhibits a rare emotional and psychological sensitivity for the franchise. Recommended - but won't make a lot of sense unless you've already been introduced to the arc of which it is a part.
