Review : Ooh, Archer is sprayed with an alien compound, then starts acting stragely - I wonder what's going on? Major Hayes is apparently a knee-jerk jingoistic idiot - yay mission, yay captain, boo insubortinators. It doesn't make much sense to me that he would so willingly follow Archer's orders, especially since he of all people seems determined to fight the Xindi threat. Given that Phlox had a senior officer with him, why couldn't he get a lowly corporal to confine the captain to quarters, or at least submit to an examination? There's no reason for the MACOs to favour Archer over the majority of senior officers. Unless they have been trained to blindly follow commands - which I would hope no military organization would be. Enterprise consistently gets minor points for execution - this episode is no different, but it's pretty bad.

Review : Once again, this was one of those episodes that just did not fit together. All the senior officers seem to go way over the top in disagreeing with each other. Now, that is quite common in Trek, and I usually put it down to sloppy writing and try to ignore it. This time, however, it just got silly, with Archer locking up various people, mutinies going on and so on. The strangest thing was Hayes siding with Archer, when he of all people should be the one with the most focus on the mission in hand. (By the way, does Hayes have a deputy? We never see a MACO captain, a MACO lieutenant or even a MACO sergeant.) The twist at the end with 'reverse imprinting' seemed to be far too convenient as an excuse for Archer's behaviour. Surely there must be more to it than that. Sure, reverse imprinting happens in real life, but Human conscience must come into it somewhere. All-in-all, it just seemed wrong, and what could have been a solid 3-star fell to a 1-star. Finally, I love the fact that the most dangerous substance known to science can be carried around in a drum marked "ANTIMATTER".
