Storyline

Captain Archer is only barely able to escape a horrible death and once again the Augments have gotten away. They disappear into Klingon space. Dr. Soong decides the ship should head to an area called Briar Patch, that will be hard to detect because of radiation. There he wants to let the embryos grow up peacefully. Once again Malik completely disagrees with him. He has taken dangerous pathogens from Cold Station 12 and plans to bombard a Klingon colony, ensuring the Federation will be too busy fighting a war with the Klingons. Malik is very convinced his plan is the best. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

At the end of this episode, Arik Soong claims "I've been thinking, perfecting Humanity may not be possible. Cybernetics. Artificial lifeforms. I doubt I'll finish the work myself; might take a generation or two." This is a direct link to the Soong family's work in upcoming centuries, which see the creation of the androids B-4, Lore, Data, and Juliana Tainer by his great-grandson Noonian Soong. See more »

Goofs

At around 40 minutes when Malik throws Soong to the floor, the close up shot of Malik's face is flipped. The bloody, injured part is the right side of his face in the shots before and after, but on the left side in the close up. See more »

Quotes

Cmdr. Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: [to T'Pol] It's not like we would have made an ideal couple. A Vulcan and a Human? Romeo and Juliet probably stood a better chance.

The Conclusion...
27 January 2006 | by fischcjSee all my reviews

Star Trek: Enterprise's Augments trilogy is a highlight in the many episodes of Star Trek. The three Episodes "Boarderland", "Cold Station 12" and "The Augments" are among my all-time favorites. The trilogy combines 2 elements of lore that fans will love: The Eugenics Wars and Brent Spiner. Spiner steals the show in all three episodes. Basic plot of this episode: Ties between Soong (Brent Spiner) and his children become foul. Did he try to save them for nothing? Who can he turn to for help? Are his only possible allies his current worst enemies? Finally, can the STARSHIP ENTERPRISE save the day and avert a major war?

If you're new to Star Trek, definitely catch this trilogy first
