  • Archer and the gang try to stop the Xindi weapon from reaching Earth...

    This episode is very special. Archer, Sato and Reed have to reach the Xindi weapon - to blow it up. But the Reptilian Xindi are intent on reaching Earth - and will kill everyone in their way. Just when Archer's ship seems unable to catch the weapon, the Andorians show up to distract the Reptilian Xindi and Archer and his gang jump aboard the weapon. They disable it and Sato and Reed escape - but the captain is missing. The fight scenes between Archer and the Reptilian are great, as is the novel way how Archer makes the Reptilian leader explode! The weapon's explosion is also a feature in this episode - with Earth in the near distance.

    As if this isn't enough, T'Pol, Trip and the rest are trying to disable the Spheres. But they are interrupted by the Trans-Dimensional figures and skin-affecting diseases. As they reach the end of their ropes, their attack of the Spheres works - the Trans-Dimensional figures shimmer away and the Spheres explode one after another. Again, incredible special effects all round.

    Just when we are catching our breaths - the crew meet once again (without the captain) and they reach Earth. The look on the faces of the crew - as they look relieved and hopeful, then become confused and annoyed as Earth doesn't respond is a special moment. Just when you think that the episode could be finished on such an intriguing note - it develops further with a past-history situation with the captain still alive!!!

    Just incredible episode to finish off the Xindi storyline and Season 3. Congratulations to all involved.
