Did You Know?


Josh Drennen originated the role of Thalen in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "Proving Ground". He reprised the role in "Stratagem", but was replaced by Christopher Goodman for the character's appearance in "Azati Prime". See more »


In the flashback, there is an external panning shot of Enterprise swooping by the proving ground from the previous episode. The debris from the exploded moon would not be static even days later. Conservation of momentum and gravity dictates it would form a cloud of chaotically moving rocks of varying size. See more »


Degra: Do you... have a family, Captain?
Captain Jonathan Archer: [... ] I never really had an opportunity to start one. I was away from home a lot.
Degra: You should make the time. I've learned that our work, in the end, means very little. Our real legacy is the children. I would do anything to protect mine.

Frequently Done on the Old Mission Impossible
25 March 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a great episode. Not only does it employ deception and creativity, it sets up the next step in destroying the Xindi weapon. One of the chief Xindi engineers is on board a strange shuttle with Archer. Archer tells him that they have been on a prison planet for three years. They form a bond. As it turns out, the entire thing has been orchestrated by the Enterprise crew to get information form the guy. This would be one thing, but the story gets a series of other twists which I won't reveal here. Archer and the gang do some real countermoves. Excellent.
