Frankenstein, Popcorn and Resentments
21 January 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While traveling to watch volcanic activities in a planet, Ensign Travis tells Captain Archer that his father is very ill and requests a leave to visit his family in the cargo ship Horizon. However his father dies and the Mayweather family reunion shows that his brother Paul is still resented with the absence of Travis. When hostile pirates attack the Horizon, Travis upgrades her systems without the authorization of Paul, increasing the tension between the brothers. Meanwhile, the reluctant T'Pol is personally invited by Captain Archer to watch a session of "Frankenstein", and in the end she surprisingly likes the movie.

"Horizon" has corny moments but it is not a bad episode. The story is predictable, and T'Pol as usual is responsible for the best moments of the episode. Fortunately the writers of this series usually show excellent taste regarding the selection of classic and cult movies in the Enterprise. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Horizon"
