When a malfunctioning, active mine attaches itself to a critical area of the ship's hull, Lieutenant Reed dons an EV suit and attempts to disarm it.

A Tense and Dramatic Episode
6 January 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While having breakfast with the tense and formal Reed, Captain Archer is called from the bridge by T'Pol. The Enterprise finds a Minshara planet with a volcanic hemisphere, and T'Pol waits for further instructions. Suddenly there is an explosion in the hull of the Enterprise, with the destruction of many decks and wounded crew. Archer realizes that the Enterprise is in a cloaked minefield and one mine is attached to the hull. Reed wears an EV suit to disarm the mine, but a sharp device is activated and penetrates his leg, and attaching him to the hull. Meanwhile, an aggressive Romulan ship orders the Enterprise to leave immediately that sector of the space.

"Minefield" is a tense and dramatic episode, with great performances of Dominic Keating and Scott Bakula. The story is engaging, developed in an adequate pace, and has good dialogs between Reed and Archer. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Campo Minado" ("Minefield")
