Shockwave, Part 2

Review

Series : Enterprise Rating : 4
Disc No : 2.1 Episode : 27
First Aired : 18 Sep 2002 Stardate : Unknown
Director : Allan Kroeker Year : 2152
Writers : Brannon Braga, Rick Berman Season : 2
Guest Cast :
Gary Graham as Ambassador Soval
Jim Fitzpatrick as Commander Williams
John Fleck as Silik
Keith Allan as Raan
Matt Winston as Daniels
Michael Kosik as Suliban Soldier
Vaughn Armstrong as Admiral Forrest
Moral :
Determination : No matter how difficult the task, with a little ingenuity you can win though
YATI : In planning their escape from the Suliban, everybody makes a big deal of how small the conduits on Enterprise are - only a child or maybe Hoshi can possibly fit through them, we are told. But when we see them, Hoshi has a good foot or so of clearence above and to the sides. Tucker or Reed could easily crawl through there!
Great Moment : Okay, raise your hands if you thought there was going to be some big "it never happened" reset button using time travel? I sure did. And while Daniels' future probably was indeed restored, the method didn't feel very hokey. They didn't even bring those four thousand miners back to life.
Body Count : Well the whole of the next thousand years got wrecked, and that probably killed one or two folks... but they would presumably be back alive again at the end. More permanently, Enterprise destroyed at least one Suliban ship and Reed got beaten up, though somewhat surprisingly Archer didn't.
Factoid : Nothing springs to mind. Any nominations?
Quote : "I said, you're an ugly bastard!" - Archer to Silik.

Plotline

Enterprise is surrounded by dozens of Suliban ships, and with Archer missing T'Pol has no choice but to surrender the ship. The Captain, meanwhile, is stranded over eight hundred years in the future with Daniels - on an Earth which has been utterly devastated by some great war or disaster. Can the two come up with a way to alert the past and set history to rights?
