    A fine light weight episode no big shakes but a bit of a laughmoreless
  • No rest for the evil or starfleet members

    Not sure what Risa is. it is supposed to be a pleasure planet. and it seems that Hoshi is the only one ever to testify to it. all others starfleet members seem to be getting the short end of that equation. The storylines overall are not that bad, but the fractured episode trying to hold 4 small storylines are a little of a miss in the end. Hoshi's encounter could have had a little more, but was ok. the Malcolm/Trip situation seems hilarious and misses the point in the end completely. Archers predicament is actually a good opening to several more episodes and does open the chance of some very decent turns in future episodes. The part of Phlox is purely hilarious, and was a welcome part here.moreless
  • A really exciting adventure for all

    Archer and Co. visit a pleasure planet called Risa. Hoshi goes down and instantly connects with an alien there. I belive they were both adept at linguistics. Archer gets there and meets a woman whom they share some romantic interests and moments. Archer and Hoshi definitely have a good expereince and since it was their first time will probably be very memorable for them. But Trip and malcolm on the other hand seem to have first hit the jackpot in meeting two beautiful women. Then it turns to every mans nightmare. They arent who they appear to be. Lets just say that Trip and Malcolm will probably be more careful with who they socialize next time they visist Risa. Oh and yeah it they will probably remember it for a long time. All in all a very charming and funny episode. Exactly why I love Sci-Fi shows . For its wackiness and anything that can happen will happen type of storylines. Loved this one!!moreless
  • great episode

    The starship enterprise arrives to a planet worth exploring. A thriving alien civilization exists on the planet. Archer, Hoshi, Travis, Malcolm, and Trip go to the planet for a shore leave. There's no alien confrontation on this episode, but nevertheless, it's still a good episode. Just watching the crew of the enterprise interact with the alien race is entertaining enough. The episode didn't over do it. We get to see stuff in it, we get to see an episode where there is no war, as long as they don't do this kind of episode way too frequently, it's wouldn't be a bad episode to watch.moreless
  • What makes a Star Trek series great is the inter-connection of the cast. This is a great example of why Enterprise was great.

    Finally reaching Risa, after several episodes of trying, Archer and the senior staff (minus T'Pol of course) head for some much needed shore leave. Trip and Malcolm, to "broaden their cultural horizons" hit the local hotspot, Archer hits his room for some relaxation, and Hoshi cruises for some interesting languages to learn. Naturally, all doesn't exactly go according to plan. Archer meets a woman with a dog, whom Porthos isn't crazy about (the dog that is), whom he eventually determines is actually Tandaran, trying to get information out of him. Being discovered, she stuns him and leaves. Trip and Malcolm meanwhile run into two attracive females that eventually rob them and tie them up. Hoshi meanwhile encounters a man with a very interesting language and ends up spending the two days with him. Overall, this was a very enjoyable episode, maybe not groundbreaking, but certainly a great moment for the crew to bond and a chance for us to see the other side of these charactersmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Mission Date: 18 February 2152

    • Nitpick: According to the rules of standard English orthography, the planet's name, Risa should be pronounced to rhyme with visa or Lisa. To make the spelling conform to the way the characters on the show pronounce it, it should be spelled either Raisa or Reysa (similar to the sound patterns in the words Kaiser or geyser.

    • Nitpick: The aliens that rob Trip and Malcolm say specifically that it would be too risky for them to try to clean out Trip and Malcolm's hotel room, which contains at least the clothes they had worn on the flight down to Risa. Yet, the two wear only their underwear on the flight back to Enterprise.
