Storyline

Enterprise discovers a class 9 gas giant and Archer orders to take a look. A probe picks up something unusual: a ship is slowly sinking into the atmosphere and at its present rate of descent the pressure will crush the ship in about an hour. Reed and T'Pol are sent to take a shuttle pod and see what they can do for the crew of the ship. At the last moment Hoshi Sato asks to join the mission. She tells Archer she finally found her 'space legs'. After entering the alien ship, Sato quickly sees it is Klingon. The crew seems to be unconscious. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

In previous episodes, T'Pol has made references to using a nasal inhibitor because Vulcans find the scent of Humans intolerable. At the end of this episode, when T'Pol, Reed and Sato are in the decontamination chamber, she claims she smells nothing, indicating that she has become accustomed to the smell of Humans. See more »

Goofs

Malcolm, (the weapons expert), is giving phase pistol lessons to Hoshi. During the lesson, all Bridge officers are called back to their stations. Hoshi makes a comment, so much for practice, and she hands the phase pistol back to Malcolm, her finger still on the trigger, and the muzzle of the phase pistol aimed directly into Malcolm's chest. No matter the century, or the weapon, this action ranks as the #1 safety violation of handling weapons. It is unlikely that Malcolm, the armory expert, would ignore this safety violation and not immediately reprimand Hoshi. See more »

Quotes

Ensign Hoshi Sato: Took a while, but I think I finally got my space legs.
Captain Jonathan Archer: I never doubted that you'd find them.

Not only let sleeping dogs lie, but no good deed goes unpunished!
21 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is yet another encounter with the annoying Klingons and you can easily see how these warlike nuts would become major rivals against the Federation in "Star Trek" (which actually occurs AFTER "Star Trek: Enterprise"). But, once again, Captain Archer TRIES to be a galactic nice-guy and help the Klingons....with typical results!

When the show begins, a stricken Klingon ship is discovered. T'Pol recommends they avoid it but the Captain has pity on the dopey Klingons and has an away team check out the ship. Not surprisingly, despite doing so much to help the Klingons, these aliens are immediately sporting for a fight and it just reinforces several old adages about letting sleeping dogs lie and no good deed goes unpunished! Overall, a very good episode though what happens is pretty much what Trek fans would expect!
