|YATI :||I really have to complain about the FX used for the super-anomaly. Enterprise is usually top notch for this kind of thing, but this anomaly looked exactly like a close up shot of some sort of bubbling foam. It was like something out of a cheesy 50s sci-fi flick.
Also, we have yet another example of an alien who can walk through walls, but doesn’t fall through the floor.
|Great Moment :||T'Pol finally getting it on with Trip!|
|Body Count :||Reed gets a detached retina, Hayes gets a bruised kidney. The alien is killed.|
|Factoid :||In "Bounty", we learn that Vulcan females do indeed go through Pon'Farr, the Vulcan mating drive which surfaces once every seven years. This episode indicates that the females at least are also prepared to mate outside of that cycle.
Interestingly enough, this episode was set two days after Christmas day. No sign of decorations or anything on the ship, though.
The disappointment of the episode is the alien story. This was potentially the most interesting, because it hints that the aliens are the sphere builders, which means that they created the Expanse. The last line also hints that these aliens might be the ones who have convinced the Xindi to attack Earth. The obvious conclusion is that the aliens are seeking some sort of foothold in our space, and want to make sure that those pesky Humans are out of the way.
