Trip states that the Bourbon will keep him warm. Just the opposite is true. Drinking alcohol will accelerate hypothermia by dilating the peripheral blood vessels. This leads to the feeling of warmth, but increases the body's heat loss. See more »

Commander Tucker: What're you gonna do, kill me?
Lt. Reed: It's set to stun. I don't want to use it. But I will.
Commander Tucker: Put it down!
Lt. Reed: Go to hell!
Commander Tucker: Stop trying to be a hero. It doesn't suit ya!

The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship
11 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

This episode is one of my favourites, not only of "Enterprise", but out of all the Star Trek series. It is what can be labeled an 'elevator episode'; one in which the action takes place in a fairly limited area to cut back on costs. But this fact does not detract from it, rather it ensures that more emphasis is placed on the characters and their development.

This episode is very much character driven and really progresses both Trip and Malcom's characters individually, but also helps shape their friendship for the remainder of the series. The episode does not rely on fancy special effects or superfluous action sequences to maintain viewer interest but on the connection that is formed between two people when they face a threatening and stressful situation together. I feel that it is in this episode that Trip and Malcom's friendship first starts.
