With T'Pol and Trip hostage, John Frederick Paxton demands that all aliens leave the solar system or else he will destroy Starfleet Headquarters. With that warning and the clock counting, Starfleet orders Archer and the Enterprise to Mars to take out the weapon threatening Earth. Meanwhile, the cloned baby of T'Pol and Trip is getting sicker and time is running out for her as well. Imprisoned, Gannet Brooks reveals to Travis that she is a secret member of Starfleet Intelligence. She has been assigned to find a Terra Prime operative working undercover on the Enterprise. With the clock ticking, the future of the planned Federation lies in the balance. Written by timdalton007

When Paxton fires the beam at Earth's moon, it strikes it immediately. Even at the closest possible distance between Earth and Mars, it would take a little over 3 minutes for the beam, traveling at the speed of light, to reach the moon. The same is true for when the beam strikes the San Fransisco Bay later. See more »


Harris: If Archer's coalition is formed, Enterprise could be busier than ever.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Indeed. Well... then I imagine this'll be the last time we meet.
Harris: Always the optimist.

"Your not only a terrorist, you're a hypocrite."
22 August 2018 | by sugarmountainfSee all my reviews

The "Terra Prime" episodes are a fitting, prescient, concluding commentary on American society from 2008-2020. The Terra Prime organization is a glove-like fit to the current Marxist Party of Hate that fosters an apocalyptic revulsion of conservative Americans. While the Terra Prime people use weapons of mass destruction to achieve their xenophobic goals, the Party of Hate uses its Brownshirt thugs to attack patriots and destroy American culture by burning books, shutting down free speech, and destroying monuments. "War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength," shout the Brownshirt terrorist hypocrites! "We've seen what humans can be at their worst," says Nathan Samuels.

Beginning with TOS, the writers tried to comment on social issues, and by accident they nailed it in this two-parter. It even contains the mandatory white-woman-lusting-after-a-black-man. (It's never a black woman desiring a white man.)

Even so, I believe this Star Trek franchise series has the most dislikable crew of all of them. Yeah, McCoy was irritating with his whining, but Enterprise has an arrogant, narcissistic, hot-tempered jock for a captain; a hot-tempered good 'ol Floda boy for a chief engineer, a whiney communications officer, and a seedy, whiney British tactical officer.
