Review : I love zombie movies so I enjoyed this episode far more than other people might. You've got zombies, a wounded party member, another slowly going zombie, unstoppable undead, and even the last minute zombification of someone. It hits every hit point, and its Trek. The onyl thing really missing was the gradual loss of party members as time went on. A fun episode for the series. Kind of a YATI issue, aren't Vulcans supposed to be significantly stronger than humans? The Enterprise personnel seemed to do quite well wrestling with people three times stronger than they are. "15 Minutes, maybe less." Much less apparently. While none of the explosions that started to rock the ship were that tremendous they still would have easily killed the landing party if they'd been at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Review : This is far better than almost any zombie film I've ever seen. It's extremely tense, the sets are claustrophobic, the Vulcans are creepy and intimidating and the Enterprise crew trapped on board are put through the wringer. This is more "physical" than most Trek episodes, more aggressive, yet still Archer et al try to communicate with the Vulcans until realising they are beyond reason. We actually get conflict as the MACO sets his rifle to kill, to be immediately pulled up by T'Pol who isn't just trying to protect other Vulcans, she's remaining true to principles the Federation will later hold dear. It's a brilliantly directed episode, the action is staged well, plus there is a very distant shot of the Enterprise being dwarfed by the asteroid field which reminded me of a computer game (in a good way). I love this whole episode, I love it how T'Pol gradually begins to descend into violent paranoia... as a one-off action episode, this buries similar episodes such as the one with Janeway running around in a vest, and even one of my personal favourites, the one where the E-D crew turn into monsters.
