When Trip tries to persuade T'Pol to come back to Enterprise with him, she refuses, saying she'd rather stay with Archer and Hoshi, but T'Pol is completely out of contact with Enterprise while she follows her two crewmates. Why doesn't she take a communicator and phaser from Trip so that she's at least able to communicate with Enterprise and defend herself? See more »

Clever premise for self-contained episode gives us a break from the Xindi
20 July 2007 | by mstomasoSee all my reviews

Archer, T'pol, Read and Sato are somehow changed into a different species of humanoid while on an away mission and only T'pol retains her memory of Enterprise, etc. The rest are driven by an overwhelming compulsion to go to a particular place on a seemingly dead planet which they believe to be their home.

Now before you dismiss this as unoriginal stuff (similar concepts were explored in episodes of TOS, Voyager and TNG), take my word for it - it's not what you think. The story-line does, however, involve a few late-franchise clichés, such as the handy forehead-prosthetic new alien species (I don't even think they get a name in this one), and the script is pretty standard for the series.

Overall, what makes this a successful and entertaining episode is Levar Burton's directing and some good physical acting from Bakula, Park and Blalock.
