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

Can Carelessness Be Blamed on Enthusiasm
7 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This was a very entertaining episode but it would not speak well for a true explorer community. The Captain is still hanging on to issues involving his father and the Vulcans. They are exploring the galaxy but can't take five or six days to probe the dangers of this planet. The away team is suddenly beset by paranoia after a storm takes place. Trip (well named) is off his rocker with delusions. T'Pol is seen as an enemy, even though she is the rational one. The others lie semi-conscious or out of their minds. This leader, who is learning, is such a loose cannon at this point, he is putting his entire crew into grave danger. He is jumping up and down to explore, but his recklessness right now is beyond acceptable.
