The series gets a makeover.
29 March 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Season three saw some MAJOR changes to try to reinvigorate the series--and it's all very obvious. The new baddies, the Xindi, are a huge departure in style to anything previously seen in any of the Trek shows. But more obvious are changes in the cast. T'Pol sports a hairdo that does NOT make her look like Moe Howard or Pete Rose and her makeup is more Vulcan AND more sexy. There are also space marines aboard the ship. But the biggest difference is that they've now sexed-up the series---with obvious and very gratuitous scenes where T'Pol is doing 'therapy' with Trip (i.e., they get very nekkid!). In general all these changes are for the good but the sexy naked scenes are a laughable attempt to garner viewers!

This episode finds Archer and Reed in a very, very, VERY familiar situation--they've been kidnapped--though they don't realize it for a while. The pair have entered a mining colony to negotiate access to one of their Xindi workers--and then find out too late that it's a slave planet and the pair are new additions to the work force!

This episode is a bit weak. The previous episode was super-exciting but this one featured a story idea which the show has done to death already (the whole kidnapping angle is overdone to death). However, on the positive side, the new alien enemy is revealed--and they are WONDERFUL. The Xindi are not one distinct race but six--and several of them are super creative (such as the aquatic and the insectoid Xindi). All in all a very mixed bag but very watchable.
