Despite Brent Spiner's appearance, I find this episode to be completely underwhelming. The idea for the story is a good one in my opinion and trying to tie Enterprise into TOS is commendable, but this episode falls flat. Maybe it's better watched when you see the trilogy back to back, but right now all I see this as is an average Star Trek episode with stunt casting (not as bad as the series finale though). I honestly don't remember much of the plot already, so it's highly forgettable. I've been mostly disappointed with this season. I highly preferred the Xindia arc.
this episode sums up conservative beliefs on
human genetic research
and the irrational fear of the common man that
doesnt know any better
the only person aurguing FOR genetic modification is soong
who is alreadly set up as the bad guy so
no one listens to him
there no discussion with trip and t pol like in other eps
when archer has harsh moral judgement to make.
it is just assumed that the augments are bad by there very nature and that everyone of the crew and audience agree
of course if you dont youre left with a disturbingly
racist view of the subject
these people never asked to augments or even to be born
but are pursecuted and hated
the best suming up of the human ideals
of the era is said by phlox
it caused a wars that killed millions
not that it is wrong or immoral
but that human are too immature or
predjudiced to accept them
