  • not the most original storyline

    9.0
    We have seen this kind of episode before in other series. To make a person believe that future events are all in the past. The episode is nicely written and the dialogues are well done. In the end the information will come across, but not completely in the way they thought.



    This episode is defenitely worth seeing, especially if you have followed what happened before. this is crucial to what ill happen next. I think that the interactions of Archer and Degra could have been a little sharper, but i hae no complaints on how it ended.



    Well done scriptwriters!moreless
  • A high ranking Xindi official is captured and run through a simulation of what it would be like for him and Captain Archer to have become friends while imprisoned.

    8.0
    I'm compelled to write about this episode. Not fully in the details, but in my own reaction to the opening scene. It wasn't a good one. Time and again it seemed like all has been irrevocably lost and this time pushed me completely out of the sphere of Enterprise altogether when it was airing. After the first few scenes that night, I realized that they had failed, Earth had been destroyed, and the continuity of the series had been completely shattered again.



    I turned off my tv, and went on with my life. I've never seen much beyond this episode, and I didn't care to. When I got to this episode today I decided to hold back my temper and just see where they were going to lead me this time. Turns out that tiny voice in the back of my head telling me it was an elaborate deception was correct. The crew of the Enterprise captured this official, the man who invented the weapon to kill worlds and made it seem like he and Archer were escaped compatriots from the Xindi.



    If I had just watched, I wouldn't have lost it, and I could have enjoyed the entire series as it arrived at my doorstep, and not years later on dvd.



    My bitterness toward this episode prevents me from giving it a very high score, but an 8.0 will do just fine.moreless
