The heart of trek to me has always been an allagory
about working together despite our differences.
This episode demonstrates this perfectly.
The fall out of the xindi crisis and the vulcans interference policy comes home to roost.When a alien hating group create a hybrid human/vulcan child designed to cause shock and hatred among the humans.
Would the archer of one year ago have agreed with these terra prime people.
I liked the scene were tpol and trip were disoverd and taken prisoner so easily.
I imagined that the ep would turn out to be a demonstration of lazy writing were the bad guys are too stupid too notice
a plant(infiltratior) and everything is rapped up in 45 mintes.
This episode switches this around brilliantly ,they always knew they were starfleet and just played them for fools.
I didnt see that coming
tpol kinda gets sidelined with her baby which was quite annoying
Also i really found the dude trying to form the alliance/federation off the back of all archers work to be well worth a slap
he reminded me of tom skiret`s character in the jodie foster film Contact.Amoral and political but perfectly okay with that
