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 (

Decent but how did Archer know these aliens were bad?!
27 March 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Enterprise is swallowed by a gigantic ship and cannot extricate itself. Within this huge vessel are a lot of swirly lights which are some sort of incorporeal beings. One takes over Trip briefly and this first contact seems very, very benign. However, inexplicably, Archer just somehow knows that these beings are bad--something that NOTHING in the show so far supports. This is a huge weakness of the show. Fortunately, what follows is pretty exciting and the show quite memorable. Not a great episode due to how Archer is written in this one but it is a novel sort of episode in many ways. My favorite part involved seeing a possessed Hoshi beating the snot out of a crew member--a nice change of pace for this otherwise wussy and annoying character.
