Absolutely perfect episode
13 August 2016 | by chaswiiSee all my reviews

This episode of Enterprise is absolutely flawless. I've always been a purist when it comes to Star Trek offerings, and have enjoyed every television series except Deep Space Nine, which was more of a sci-fi soap opera. While Enterprise is also a continuing series, being a "prequel" further expounds on the early history of Star Fleet, etc, much to the delight of us Trekkies. The characters are memorable, albeit the series does become rather lackluster at times. This particular episode however, was extraordinary in every way. The writing/story line was well-conceived, and the acting and direction was superb. The continuity of the story was perfect, and the editing was impeccable. I've not seen all the episodes yet (I'm only in the 3rd season) but I doubt I'll see a better one. It is absolutely perfect, and i cannot recommend it enough.
