  • An old trek staple "not all aliens are bad" for such an overdone concept the episode is suprisingly good

    7.4
    Archer proceeds to a xindi colony

    were a weapon conponent is being constructed.

    He takes the leader of the refinery hostage in his home

    and begins to interogate him.

    Archer is suprised to learn he,Gralik, has never heard of humans or the attack on earth.

    As we discover he is merely a business man who sold kemocite to degra and his allies.



    Eventually archer begins to trust gralik enough to

    release him and gives the shipment to the recently arrived council members.After he sabotages it with an unnessecary test.A canister is also modified to make its detection very easy until the council members ship disappears into a subspace anomoly .

    Gralik encourages archer to keep looking as the range of the vortex is only 6 light years.Archer makes a friend among the xindi.



    A good episode and it forshadows the upcoming xindi alliance between archer and some of the xindi sub species.



    The actor plays gralik as a grumpy old bugger but he is also a very moral person he seems offend by the idea of all those deaths and takes his share of the blame

    for his no questions asked policy.



    There not alot of action for an enterprise episode but

    there alot of moral questions and soul searching by both archer and gralik.moreless
