Storyline

Enterprise answers an automated distress call of the Vulcan ship Seleya, lost in the Expanse 9 months ago. Captain Archer, T'Pol, Lt. Reed and Cpl. Hawkins dock Shuttlepod One with Seleya, only to be attacked by the survivors. The Vulcan crew have been reduced to zombie-like drones, permanently brain-damaged by a neurotoxin in the Trellium. Meanwhile, Enterprise navigates an unpredictable asteroid field rich in Trellium, an ore that can be refined to make a vital insulation for traveling the expanse with minimal damage from the anomalies. Tucker and Mayweather land Shuttlepod Two on an asteroid to mine the ore. Written by Meribor

Goofs

Travis and Mayweather transport a small asteroid onto the Enterprise to harvest its resources. Seconds after it arrives, Tucker picks it up and sets it aside. If it had just been beamed aboard from space it would have been extremely cold and he would not have been able to pick it up. See more »

T'Pol's Tour De Force
12 August 2007 | by mstomasoSee all my reviews

Jolene Blalock finally got the opportunity to show us what she is made of in this action-oriented episode. And she handles her role very admirably.

The episode has a clever opening sequence bound to pull most viewers in immediately. T'Pol is in sick bay screaming and accusing Archer of murder. We then go one day back in time and discover how they got there. The story begins when Enterprise locates The Seleya, one of the Vulcan ships lost in the expanse, and finds that there are life signs aboard despite the very heavy damage the ship has taken on.

The episode is reminiscent of first person shooter video games, and the action does become a bit tedious after a while. But Blalock's 'torn loose' performance is enough to keep it interesting.

A final comment - there is a fairly massive plot hole involving the Vulcans and their medical science, which astute viewers will pick up on immediately. Don't let it bother you.. Enjoy it for what it is - one of the better Enterprise episodes.
