Review : This eppy saw the character of Hoshi become a space-worthy boomer. I enjoyed seeing that. It got a 2 rating because of the animal they used for Hoshi's parallel emotional connection. A slug? Really? With today's advances in incredible computer technology, they could have created an incredible life form for her to drag around - perhaps a tiny marsupial with massive eyes? But, alas, we will have to settle with this slimy slug. For whatever reason, Hoshi feels a connection with this "thing" and in the closing scene, gets to transplant it to a habitable planet capable of supporting its' life. Not an eppy I'll be showing my friends.

Review : ENT makes first contact with aliens seem menacing and dangerous. Alien ships are potentially hostile environments which disorient and unnerve the crew. The scene of all those hanging bodies with Hoshi's scream of horror was excellent - the ENT crew are more like real people than the polished professionals of later generations. The fact that the enemy remains unseen and nameless is very different from the norm. It is hard to imagine Earth's most capable starship, which went into Klingon space, is armed only with high explosive torpedoes with a faulty guidance system (the plasma cannon used in the first episode is never seen or referred to again) but it does tie in with humans being explorers. It is interesting to see a Starfleet ship so outmatched in technology. It's also difficult to accept that the alien rescuers at the end would believe Enterprise was responsible for killing their comrades when there's a giant death-machine already ripping into Enterprise. However the performances, the improved special effects and some good sets make this a good early episode which seems under-appreciated. Note the ending music is slightly different in this epiosde to the rest of the series,
