Did You Know?


Dialogue in Act Four between T'Pol and Hoshi is the first on-screen confirmation that T'Pol is Enterprise's first officer, in addition to science officer. This was frequently implied in previous episodes, with T'Pol asserting that her Vulcan sub-commander rank superseded Trip's Starfleet commander rank (Star Trek: Enterprise: Broken Bow: Part I (2001)), and with Archer consistently assigning command to T'Pol first when leaving the ship (and/or the bridge).

When examining the part of the creature severed by the door, which is still alive, Dr. Phlox compares it to an earthworm. It is a misconception that if an earthworm is cut in half, both parts will survive. There is a chance the head section may survive, however, the tail end will die. See more »


Ensign Hoshi Sato: You don't think I belong on Enterprise, do you?
Sub-Commander T'Pol: On the contrary. It would be a great loss to Starfleet if you were not a part of this crew. If you feel I've been unfair to you, I apologize. But I hold you to a high standard, Ensign, because I know you're capable of achieving it.

A Very Creative Effort
13 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

When a group of seemingly combative aliens leave Enterprise after a failed first contact, a strange stringy mass enters an open bay. It is like a large sticky spider web. When an engineer enters, its tentacles grasp him and pull him in, wrapping him up. Not long after, his female colleague, Trip, and Archer find themselves in a similar circumstance. Part of the failed contact involves Hoji's inability to properly translate their language. She is now face with communicating with the entity which uses a unique mathematical language. Time is wasting because the crew are beginning to be absorbed. This is a truly unique alien life form and a good adventure.
