Storyline

Enterprise answers a distress call of a Retellian cargo ship. The crew, Goff and Plinn, tell they have a problem with a stasis pod that apparently carries a passenger. While both Retellians enjoy Enterprise' facilities, Trip tries to repair the pod which contains a beautiful woman. Then suddenly the woman wakes up. She seems to choke and Trip opens the pod, only to be knocked out by the quickly returned Goff. He escapes with his ship from Enterprise, leaving Plinn behind. The woman introduces herself as Kaitaama, heir apparent to the throne of Krios, and she suspects she's being held for ransom. Trip thinks of a plan to escape. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

In 2013, Brannon Braga stated that he considers "Precious Cargo" to be one of the worst Star Trek episodes ever. See more »

Goofs

Captain Archer, when offering assistance to the freighter captain, says they "can dock in our launch bay." Unless Archer was referring to some other ship, the freighter that was shown docked with Enterprise in earlier shots is comparable in size to Enterprise itself and would in no way be able to fit inside Enterprise's launch bay, which is sized to fit shuttlepods and other small craft.

The First Monarch of Krios Prime
13 January 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The Enterprise receives a distress call from a Retellian cargo vessel and the crew tells Captain Archer that they have problem with the life support system of an alien that is transported in a cocoon. Trip goes to the alien ship to repair the system while Goff and Plinn come to Enterprise to have a shower and meal. Trip sees a beautiful woman in the cocoon that suddenly wakes-up, and Trip tries to help her to leave the spot. However, Trip is attacked by Goff, who leaves Plinn in the Enterprise and escapes with Trip and the woman. She introduces herself to Trip as Kaitaama, the First Monarch of Krios Prime, and she tells that she had been abducted by the Retellians that asked for a ransom. Trip decides to escape in the pod and convinces Kaitaama to come with him.

"Precious Cargo" is a funny episode, and Trip recalled me Captain Kirk from "Star Trek" again, seducing another female alien. The unpleasant character of the gorgeous Padma Lakshmi actually did not need a consultation with Dr. Phlox to relieve her sexual tension with the presence of Trip. The Retellian Goff is easily lured by Archer and T'Pol, but I liked this episode. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Carga Preciosa" ("Precious Cargo")
