Did You Know?


First "Enterprise" episode written by John Shiban, who previously had a long career on the The X-Files (1993). "Minefield" tackled a sensitive subject in the world of Trek continuity, the Romulans. Despite fears, the episode was raved by critics, and fans accepted the complicated continuity as a result. See more »


In Star Trek: Balance of Terror, set in 2266, the Federation did not know about a Romulan cloaking device. If the NX-01 reported it in 2152, the NCC-1701 would have been expecting it. See more »


Captain Jonathan Archer: So, where were we?
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Sir?
Captain Jonathan Archer: This morning, at breakfast, before we were interrupted. You said... you didn't follow any particular sport?
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Well, I'm afraid I haven't started following one since breakfast, sir.

Nobody Here But Us Romulans
16 March 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is one of those episodes that needn't have been science fiction. It's about disarming a bomb (mine) in a limited time frame. It would have been hard enough, but the Romulans show up (we don't get to see their quilted tops). They are bound and determined to get rid of Enterprise, assuming they are conducting espionage. Malcolm has some sort of porcupine rod through his leg, forcing Archer to go out and disarm the weapon. Like a previous writer, wouldn't a transporter have worked? Anyway, there are all sorts of scientific pitfalls here. Still, it is engrossing and would be during World War II in a different setting. There is some fun interaction between the two men whose personalities are polar opposites.
