Storyline

A massive ship pulls Enterprise in and disables the engines as well as the weapons. Archer, Trip and Reed start inspecting the alien vessel, but a wispy energy being enters Trip briefly. Back on Enterprise Phlox determines there's nothing wrong with Trip, but he remembers being with his girlfriend Lisa on a beach in Florida. It's not long before the wispy creature takes over Trip again. This time the non-corporeal being tells Archer they're explorers and are interested in how corporeal beings live their lives. He offers everyone on Enterprise to do 'the crossing' and experience what's it like to be non-corporeal. Archer doesn't trust it. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Same story, different day.... pretty but vacant
10 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

Special effects are the highlight of this recycling of the energy-beings-from-another-dimension-take-over-the-crew plot. Enterprise is engulfed in a larger, faster ship, and members of the crew are temporarily possessed by some pretty aquamarine clouds of light. While they are possessed, they dream vividly about their homes and other fantasies, leading members of the Enterprise crew to wonder what these creatures really want. All seems promising up to this point although the dialog isn't even up to Enterprise's standards. However, the story takes a nose dive into the usual plot devices, and relies on an absurdly inconsistent portrayal of Captain Archer's approach toward alien cultures in its conclusion.
