The Romulan chameleon ship changes its appearance to that of Enterprise and destroys a Rigellian ship. It's becoming more and more clear they are trying to destabilize the region and captain Archer is determined to find it. T'Pol suggests creating a network of 128 ships. Since the Vulcans can't send enough ships, Archer must convince the Tellarites and Andorians to cooperate. It will be hard, especially Shran seems really upset that his partner Talas has been injured. Meanwhile Trip and Reed try to disable the ship from the inside. They are up against the Romulans controlling the ship, who do everything in their power to stop them. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

User Reviews

Great episode with an excellent Jeffery Coombs performance
14 December 2020 | by snoozejoncSee all my reviews

Enterprise pursues the Romulan drone ship and Archer contends with the fallout from the shooting of Lt. Talas.

I enjoyed the second part of the Romulan trilogy as it has a compelling plot, memorable character moments, strong performances and good sense of continuity with the franchise.

The plot contains plenty of excitement as Trip and Reed fight for survival and Archer deals with a diplomatic incident aboard Enterprise. This all unfolds in a series of solid character moments where pretty much everyone contributes, even Hoshi and Mayweather. Reed gets the opportunity to be heroic which is refreshing given his character's poor past material.

All performances are great, particularly Jeffery Coombs who gets some excellent moments as Shran and firmly establishes the character as a franchise favourite.

Much like the Babel One, United feels like its belongs in the Star Trek universe and works as prequel to the original series. Unfortunately this does not help everything that's come before it as it shows what potential was squandered in the first three seasons. However, I'll end on a positive note by remarking that it ends on another intriguing reveal that makes you need to know what happens next.
