Human curiosity speaks louder than Vulcan logic. Despite T'Pol's objection, Archer sends an away team to explore an uninhabited planet before getting a full scan of its unique properties. When nightfall arrives, the away team seeks shelter from a storm in a nearby cave. Panic and anxiety strike the team when a pollen brings on hallucinations of a life-form in the cave. Tucker's preconceptions of Vulcans are intensified when his delusions convince him T'Pol, in league with the "rock people," intend to kill him and his human crew-mates. Written by Meribor

Anybody Ever Heard of a Protocol?
13 May 2017 | by Samuel-ShovelSee all my reviews

So mankind finally makes it to the stars. We're exploring around, well aware of the fact that there are many many different lifeforms out there far more advanced and physically superior to us. We're practically babies wandering around space, so you think we'd decide to play it safe and be extremely cautious right? WRONG!

Captain Archer and the crew are acting like we're out exploring a hiking trail, not the great unknown. The humans on this ship are acting so stupidly! Just prancing around, going into abandoned ships, exploring uncharted planets. Archer is constantly placing his crew in danger just for the sake of "because I want to". I kind of hope the Enterprise lose a crew member or two just so Archer will stop being so headstrong & impulsive.

This idea of a planet with a spreadable pollen that cause people to hallucinate and become paranoid is a really cool idea. But when the crew find themselves in a bad situation because they are acting like imbeciles, I have no sympathy for them. T'Pol seems like she's the only one thus far that's not completely incompetent. You have a brand new shiny spacecraft costing trillions of dollars and you're letting your head engineer go camping? No, I don't think so. Start running a tighter ship, Archer.
