||A decent episode, mostly. On the whole its a fairly standard episode about contact with a prewarp civilization but being Enterprise its not the usual prime directive situation. Still, what ruins it for me is that they apparently have training about cultural contamination yet how does Archer avoid spilling the beans about them being aliens? Convincing them he and Reed are super soldiers flying invisible aircraft and armed with experimental beam weapons. Yes, at the end of the episode they reflect on how badly they handled the situation, but pointing out how bad they screwed up doesn't really excuse it. It wasn't handled in the worst possible way, just the second worst possible way.
